What Laser is best???
Dark skin tones require a NANO laser. Do not allow them to tell you they have the best PICO laser on the market. I’m sure it’s a efficient machine but not the machine for you. Pico lasers love small molecules of which melanocytes are one. Melanocytes are the cells in your skin that produce the melanin. We need them, the Pico laser will kill them. Do not expect your doctor or technician to understand this. They have paid a lot of money for their Pico laser and told it’s THE BEST. But it’s not the BEST for us. Oddly, Nano lasers are a much cheaper technology so it will be a lot easier for you to find.
The Laser Practitioner
Removing tattoos & semi-permanent makeup on dark skin is an art form. Make sure your technician understands what they’re doing and are experienced in the subject. You want someone that does this day in and day out. Check they are fully qualified
Remember that it’s nearly impossible to leave you with pre tattoo condition skin. Be realistic it takes time to remove body ink or semi-permanent makeup
Do your research, go to the consultation armed with knowledge and don’t forget the test patch its normally a requirement for their insurance
