Getting a tattoo was easy but now you really don’t want it? Tattoos can be done by professional artists or amateurs. A variety of inks are used by tattoo artists and in varying depths into the skin. They can look amazing when you are younger but can also fade over time and look not quite as appealing as they did when you first got them.

Tattoos are inks that are put into the skin as an art form. Tattoos are much easier to put on than to take off. In the past they have been removed by surgery or abrasives. These methods all used to leave significant scars. The latest forms of tattoo removal is by using lasers and has proven to be effective in removing tattoos with little risk of scarring. Tattoo removal uses the laser to break up the ink and have fragments of the ink removed by the bodys own natural defence system. In laser tattoo removal breaking the ink requires the use of several lasers and an expertise in knowing when to use each specific type of laser. At Beautiful Canadian Laser we have been performing laser tattoo removal for over 10 years and have a number of lasers we use specifically for tattoo removal.
