When choosing a laser facility for your procedures it can be very confusing. There are many factors that should go into your decision.
At North Houston Laser Tattoo Removal we believe the following criteria are most important in choosing a laser facility, whether it’s for tattoo removal or aesthetic skin laser treatments:
What type of laser is the facility using?
There are many types of lasers available in the marketplace that are each designed for specific things. Unfortunately, because there are so many choices, some facilities use lasers that were not designed specifically for the treatments that they are offering to the public. It’s exceedingly important that the facility has a laser specializing in the procedure that you’re having performed.
We have heard several stories from clients about bad experiences, where the facility was using the same laser for tattoo removal as they were using for hair removal. Unfortunately, this misuse of the laser can cause scarring because requirements for hair removal are different than what needs to happen with tattoo removal.
At North Houston Laser Tattoo Removal, we use the latest laser that is designed specifically for tattoo removal and aesthetic skin laser treatments, such as rejuvenation and discoloration (age spots, sun damage, birth marks, etc.) removal. So what the heck does all that mean?
Tattoo laser pulses more intensely with more heat & at 1/1 trillionth of a second pulses. By comparison, a hair removal laser has a longer pulse length (1/1000 of a second) and less heat/intensity. A hair removal laser will heat the tissue for too long of a period of time, causing a high potential for scarring.
Is there a certified laser technician on staff?
North Houston Laser Tattoo Removal has certified laser technicians on staff that are specifically trained on the laser we are using. This expert knowledge and understanding of the physics behind the laser allows our staff to perform their job with professionalism.
