Tattoo Removal in Champaign, IL
Effectively fade unwanted tattoos
Tattoos are designs created by dyes inserted directly under the skin saturating the skin cells they are injected into.
Because of this, the removal of the tattoo has to be accomplished by a powerful laser that can penetrate deep enough. The heat and the pulses of light from the PicoSure laser can help patients break up their ink.
