In five short treatments, The Finery NYC fully removed our client’s unwanted finger tattoos. Typically finger tattoos like tattoos on the knuckles or hands take longer to remove.
Typically removal of a finger tattoo can be unpredictable, due to the uneven application on such a small area by the tattoo artist. Where some artist deposits less ink leading to easy tattoo removal, some can just as easily deposit to much ink, causing the need for more removal treatments. Luckily for this client, the ink saturation was not so much as to cause a prolonged removal process, in 5 quick laser tattoo removal treatments she was finished.
One challenge we did come across was the skin type of this client, coupled with the location. As she was a darker skin type, the need to keep the tattoo out of the sun becomes even more necessary. Obviously having a tattoo on the fingers makes this much more difficult than something easily concealed under clothing. We always recommend a minimum of using a sunblock with 20% zinc oxide, however in cases like this most clients chose to use a band aids on the area whenever in the sun! The less sun exposure, the better the likely hood of complete, and clear removal becomes.
This tattoo removal before and after was made possible thanks to our 1064 wavelength that is safe for all skin types. This wavelength targets black ink efficiently, while leaving the bodies melanocytes alone. This is why our go-to for all darker skin type clients is a 1064 wavelength. We can provide quick and consistent results for clients with black tattoos, with little fear of leaving behind hypo or hyper-pigmentation.
