Revlite Tattoo Removal
The Revlite laser by Cynosure is great for removing red ink tattoos but does not remove tattoos as effectively as our new PicoSure Laser. The PicoSure laser is the fastest laser in the world, delivering energy in picoseconds (one trillionth of a second), making it one hundred times faster than all the current technology which delivers energy only in nanoseconds. However, the Revlite laser does remove red ink more effectively because it uses different wavelengths and frequency. For this reason, we use a combination of both the Revlite and PicoSure if you happen to have a tattoo with multiple ink colors that includes red. This combination of lasers sets us apart from other offices and yields the most safe and effective laser tattoo removal possible.
Since 1992, when PhotoAcoustic technology was introduced to the dermatology community with the original RevLite laser, the RevLite C6 Q-switched Nd:YAG laser has evolved with more power, more sophisticated engineering and greater efficiency to treat tattoos.
Laser tattoo removal is the most effective, non-invasive method of safe tattoo removal. The lasers used at Phoenix Skin Dermatology for tattoo removal are designed to effectively target the ink that resides just under your skin. Using different wavelengths of light to address the many different colors used in tattoos, the laser breaks down the ink particles into smaller fragments which are then removed through your body’s natural cleansing process. This cleansing process generally takes between 4 to 6 weeks to remove the maximum amount of ink pigments.
The RevLite C6 laser is just one of many laser technologies available at Phoenix Skin Dermatology for laser tattoo removal. A complimentary consultation to determine the best method of laser tattoo removal is just a phone call away. Call 602.222.9111 today to schedule.
