Why choose Lasercare Tattoo Removal?

Posted in Blog, Uncategorized

Lasercare Tattoo Removal has brought Alaska into the 21st century with the most advanced laser technology on the market today.  We use the Quanta Q Plus laser, the most powerful tattoo removal laser available.

This stronger laser also means fewer treatments, less pain, and a higher rate of...

Factors Involved in Tattoo Removal

Posted in Blog

Removing tattoos isn’t as straightforward as erasing a pencil drawing. The variables introduced by the human body influence the removal process in all kinds of ways.  Some of the factors that impact the number of laser treatments necessary to remove a tattoo are more obvious than others. Ink depth, density, and color, as well as skin type are a few factors you may figure would influence the process.

Tattoo Removal Methods

Posted in Uncategorized

No one gets a tattoo anticipating its removal. The tattoo artist, whose goal is to create a permanent image, embeds the ink deep within the dermis. The ink is below the outer layers of skin, the epidermis, so the ink won’t be effected by shedding of the skin or external factors acting on the surface of the skin. Removing this ink is possible, some methods more acceptable than others. Wrecking Balm, Tattoo B Gone, lemon juice, and other lotions can lighten the top layer of the skin over the tattoo, possibly making the tattoo appear lighter. This skin is constantly shedding off, so reapplication is ongoing. Basically, this method...

Laser tattoo removal works by the laser breaking...
