A tattoo is an excellent way to express yourself. Tattoos can be a way to express your affinity for a loved one or a hobby. They can be a reminder of a hard time you overcame. Or a tattoo of the lyrics to a song can serve as inspiration. But for many people, tattoos can be a regrettable thing. Perhaps, you got one to show your love for someone or something, but that love died down. Or maybe those song lyrics don’t hit you as hard emotionally as they once did. You’re ready to start fresh and with a clean slate, ridding your skin of that no longer desirable ink. Thankfully, you can successfully and safely by undergoing laser tattoo removal.
Laser tattoo removal is an effective way to remove unwanted ink from your skin without harming surrounding tissues. If you are a resident of Monterey, CA, or surrounding communities and are ready to put an end to your tattoo, please contact Peninsula Glow Medical Spa.

Laser tattoo removal involves using a combination of powerful laser technology and your body’s natural healing capabilities to remove unwanted ink. The treatment works by introducing a concentrated energy beam to the treatment site to shatter unwanted color pigments. These shattered-colored pigments are gradually absorbed by the skin, revealing a clearer complexion. After several laser tattoo removal treatments, the unwanted pigments will become smaller and smaller until they are completely gone.
– Is your tattoo a source of embarrassment?
– Is your tattoo viewed as unprofessional?
– Is your tattoo a reminder of mental hardships, such as a toxic relationship?
– Is your lifestyle no longer representative of someone who has a particular tattoo?
– Is your tattoo keeping you from confidently wearing certain clothing?
– Is your tattoo no longer appealing because you have aged?
During your laser tattoo removal treatment, a topical anesthetic may be applied to mitigate any discomfort. Laser tattoo removal is a generally tolerable treatment. The sensation it produces is much like the sensations felt when receiving a tattoo. But the topical numbing agent will significantly reduce any pain experienced. When the treatment site is numb and prepped, your provider will apply the handheld RevLite SI laser device to emit the energy. Each pulse of energy will gradually shatter the unwanted colored ink. The device’s energy will be applied evenly to ensure consistent results. Typically, a laser tattoo removal session lasts for 15 minutes, depending on the size of the tattoo that is being treated.
Immediately after your treatment, your treatment site will appear red or be swollen. These are normal side effects and typically subside after one day. There may also be blistering and scabbing, which will go away after several days usually. If scabbing or blistering occurs, you should not touch it because it can inhibit the natural healing process. Your provider will apply a healing ointment and bandage your treatment site after the treatment session to help the healing process. The healing ointment should be used for several days after your treatment to speed up your recovery. You will be encouraged to avoid natural sunlight as your skin will be sensitive, and it can potentially affect your results. Gradually, the shattered ink pigments will fade into your skin.
Tattoos are a wonderful form of self-expression. But, for some, they can eventually become a source of embarrassment or be a reminder of a past that you are ready to get over. Thankfully, it is entirely possible to rid your body of unwanted ink by undergoing laser tattoo removal, a treatment that can effectively remove the ink without harming surrounding skin tissues.
