Your Skin Tone Matters

Skin type is incredibly important to the laser tattoo removal process, so finding a clinic that has a proven effective protocol tailored to your specific type is key. Having provided thousands of treatments per year on darker skin types alone, we’re leaders in safe and effective treatments on all skin types.

People with darker skin tones can have their tattoos removed safely and effectively with the right type of laser. A 1064 wavelength is the only laser wavelength available that has shown consistent and clean results on darker skin types. A 1064 wavelength is essentially color blind seeing just the ink and not pigment, letting you safely remove your unwanted black tattoos with confidence while minimizing problems like scarring or pigmentation issues to between one and five percent.

During the removal process, pulses of light/wavelengths are used to attract to the ink in-order to crystalize and break up the large ink molecules. A client may experience hyper/hypopigmentation issues if they are not following the appropriate aftercare instructions, or if they expose the skin to sun or heat for an extended period of time.

  • Jose’s Story

    “I found myself wanting winter to come so I could hide my tattoo. It was just not something I liked. Then, I talked to coworker who had his tattoo removed at The Finery and it looked amazing. I saw their positive reviews, so I decided to take the leap.”

  • Jenna’s Story

    “I love watching the progression of it. Last time I was here I even asked to look at my photos. Sometimes when you’re staring at something every day, you don’t always notice that it’s going away. One thing I’m very excited about, now that I’m not scared of lasers, is trying the skincare treatments at The Finery.”
