Tattoos are forever—or are they? At VIDA Aesthetic Medicine, we understand that people change, but tattoos don’t unless you have professional tattoo removal using the latest technology. Whether you’ve outgrown a tattoo or just want to make room for new ink, we can help you with laser tattoo removal. It’s a safe and effective procedure that uses the Q-Switched MedLite C6 laser to break up the ink that your body will then naturally eliminate.
How Tattoo Removal Works – Meet The MedLite C6 Laser
State-of-the-art laser therapies can remove a variety of unwanted items from the skin, from tattoos to body hair. VIDA Esthetician Team is highly experienced and expertly trained in laser tattoo removal. Certified in 2012 with the MedLite C6 laser, our providers continue their training and education to ensure they’re knowledgeable in the latest tips and techniques. As a result of ongoing training and access to cutting-edge research, our providers know exactly how to assess and treat even the most intricate of tattoos to ensure the most success.
The MedLite C6 by Cynosure uses revolutionary technology designed specifically to treat and remove unwanted tattoo ink by sending short, fast energy pulses to the inked area. Light energy vibrates and breaks up the ink, turning it into micro-particles that the body organically processes and eliminates.
VIDA Removes Gang Tattoos
Sometimes it’s not only the quality of the tattoo that makes you want to remove them. Gang tattoos are reminders of a life you’ve left behind and can hinder your present and future success of being hired, receiving promotions, and even your personal life. That’s why VIDA participates in helping to remove gang tattoos. Certain rules and restrictions apply. Please call our office for details.

Add-on Treatments for Tattoo Removal
Removing old tattoos is just one step in restoring your natural “canvas.” VIDA offers a variety of other treatments to help your skin look and feel its best.
If you really want to revitalize your skin, additional treatments such as BBL for improved skin tone and texture can be a great complement to laser tattoo removal. Further rejuvenating the skin after laser tattoo removal treatments can help you take the reclamation of your skin to the next level. Microneedling improves the appearance of skin through tiny micro-injuries. If you want to enhance skin quality further, microneedling following laser tattoo removal can be a great combination.
What to Expect with Tattoo Removal
You’ll learn a lot during your complimentary consultation, including how many treatments are recommended, the length of your sessions, and when you can expect to start seeing results.
During your appointment, cold air is blown on to the treatment area to increase comfort. You’ll be given safety goggles, just like with any other type of laser or light therapy treatment. If you watch the process, you might notice that the tattoo can turn white for a few seconds as the laser is applied. After the treatment, a bandage is applied along with instructions for at-home care.
Following every appointment, it’s critical to avoid direct sun exposure on the treated area. Your esthetician will tell you exactly how long to avoid exposure, and recommend a medical-grade skin care regimen, including sunscreen, to help protect your skin as it heals.
