How To Fade A Tattoo

There are a lot of reasons why you might want to fade a tattoo. Sometimes, you just don’t like it anymore or maybe you want to fix a poor-quality tattoo. You might also want to cover an old tattoo with something new. Laser tattoo removal is the perfect solution if you have an old tattoo that you want to get rid of or fade.

About Laser Tattoo Removal 

Laser tattoo removal uses short bursts of light energy to break up the ink and cause the tattoo to fade. When the light penetrates the skin, it is absorbed by the ink, causing it to heat up. As it heats up, the ink then breaks into small fragments, which are carried away by your immune system. 

The tattoo will fade over the course of treatment until, eventually, it disappears completely. At the New York Skin and Vein Center, we offer laser tattoo removal treatments that are capable of removing a variety of colors of ink. 

Laser Tattoo Removal For Fading 

In some cases, you don’t want the tattoo to be removed entirely. If you are having it covered, for example, you can fade the tattoo and the new one will cover whatever is left. 

Enlighten™ tattoo fading is the best option here. It works in much the same way as standard laser tattoo removal treatments, but fewer sessions are needed. We use an innovative laser that delivers the laser light in a way that breaks up the ink much faster than standard lasers. This means that your tattoo will fade much faster, so you don’t need as many treatments. 

The NYSV Laser Tattoo Removal Guarantee

Laser tattoo removal treatments vary for everybody. Your ink colors, the size of the tattoo, and the thickness of the ink all affect the number of sessions it will take to remove the tattoo. 

However, we are dedicated to removing your tattoo as quickly as possible, which is why we created our guarantee. If your tattoo is not gone after 8 sessions, we will not charge you for any further sessions needed to remove it.

Benefits of Tattoo Fading

There are a number of benefits to tattoo fading treatments. Laser tattoo removal is an incredibly effective way to reduce the appearance of tattoos, and it’s very safe too. It will not leave scarring and the recovery times are minimal. 

If you have an old tattoo that you want to cover, tattoo fading treatments are the ideal solution. Reducing the appearance of the tattoo will make it much easier for an artist to cover it with something new. 

Am I A Candidate For Laser Tattoo Removal?

If you have an old tattoo that you get rid of completely or you want to lighten a tattoo before covering it up, you are a perfect candidate for laser tattoo removal. The procedure works on any skin type and tone and can fade almost all ink colors. You must be relatively healthy before having laser tattoo removal, but the majority of people are suitable for it.
