Research studies have found that 1 in 5 people in the United States have at least one tattoo, and 40% of young adults between the ages of 18 and 29 have a tattoo. It’s little wonder that new laser tattoo removal treatments are increasingly popular as the tattoos of youth give way to the realities of adult life. At Revive Medical Spa, LLC in Fayetteville, Arkansas, the team of aestheticians offers laser tattoo removal, helping men and women in northwest Arkansas, southern Missouri and eastern Oklahoma put the past in the past.

Tattoo Removal Q & A
What is laser tattoo removal?
The Enlighten® III laser system at Revive Medical Spa, LLC is a picosecond and nanosecond laser system that features multiple wavelengths, allowing your aesthetician to adjust the energy according to your tattoo.
Tattoos come in all shapes and sizes, sure, but they also come in different ink colors, which reach different depths. For instance, older tattoos with a lot of black ink can be harder to remove than a more recent tattoo full of color. With the Enlighten system, your aesthetician can customize the wavelengths depending on the depth and age of your tattoo for maximum effect.
The laser pulses target the pigments in the ink and break them into tiny particles. These particles are then processed and flushed out through your body’s lymphatic system.
What inks can I have removed?
Because of the precision and strength of the Enlighten system, your aesthetician is able to target all ink colors, including:
While it may take a little more energy to remove brighter colors or deeply-embedded colors, the laser system greatly diminishes or removes most tattoos, no matter the color.
Does laser tattoo removal work on all skin types?
Again, because of the adjustable technology, the team at Revive Medical Spa, LLC is able to use the Enlighten® laser tattoo removal system on people of all skin types.
How many laser tattoo removal treatments do I need?
This answer depends entirely on the size, color, age, and location of your tattoo. During your initial consultation, one of the team reviews your tattoo and comes up with an appropriate treatment plan. And with the new Enlighten® system, this plan will contain 40% fewer treatments than most other systems.
When will I see the results of laser tattoo removal?
Since most tattoos require several treatments, your results are gradual. You typically need to wait six weeks between treatments to give your body time to flush away the broken-up ink particles, so you’ll have to be patient for the final results. But it will be worth the wait as you say goodbye to your unwanted tattoos.
