It is estimated that more than 10 million Americans have a tattoo. As the trend of body art continues to grow, so does the desire to have unwanted tattoos removed. Whether it was poorly done, no longer fits their lifestyle or interferes with career advancements, more that 50% of people who have a tattoo regret it and seeks to have it removed.
In the past, tattoo removal was unsophisticated and scarring was common. Advances in laser technology has changed that forever. Laser treatments are now the standard technique in tattoo removal and are the safest, most effective way to remove an unwanted tattoo.
The Cosmetic Enhancement Center has been performing laser tattoo removal since 1988 and is the leading and most experienced facility in Maine to offer this service.
The laser works by producing short pulses of intense light that safely penetrate the skin and are absorbed by the tattoo pigment. This causes the pigment to break into tiny particles that are absorbed by the body and removed by the immune system.
CEC uses the Alex TriVantage® laser. The laser emits specific wavelengths of light to target specific tattoo colors and will safely remove your tattoo without leaving a scar or permanent damage to the skin. The Total FX Co2 Fractionated Laser is used to correct any pigmentation issues once the tattoo has completely been removed.
Laser tattoo removal is a gradual process and some colors such as greens, blues, white and pink are the most difficult to remove and may never completely go away. Our physicians will be able to estimate how many sessions will be required to remove your tattoo upon consultation.
