About Laser Tattoo Removal

Virtue Tattoo is a full-service tattoo studio that offers premium laser treatment for unwanted ink, tattoo regret, and tattoo modification. Virtue Tattoo has served the greater Houston area for over 15 years and is renowned for its superior tattooing and piercing. We are excited to add laser tattoo removal to our award-winning services to help clients remove, revise, and modify their unwanted tattoos.


The Natural Tattoo Fading Process

Your immune system’s primary goal is to protect your body from bacteria and infection. During tattoo application, a needle punctures the skin and creates a wound that triggers your immune system. Large ink particles are embedded in the skin’s dermis layer, further alerting your immune to send phagocytes, bacteria-eating cells, to remove the foreign ink particles. However, tattoo ink particles are comparatively much larger than blood cells. Therefore, the phagocytes can only chip away tiny ink fragments at a time. This natural fading process is carried out over a lifetime, which explains why tattoos are permanent but gradually fade.


How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

Laser tattoo removal speeds up the natural fading course by breaking down the large ink particles into bite-size pieces that are easier for your immune system to remove. Our Astanza Trinity laser releases high-speed pulses of light energy over the unwanted tattoo during a laser session. The light energy safely penetrates through the skin and targets the ink particles trapped in the dermis layer without damaging any surrounding skin tissue. The ink particles absorb the light energy, heat up, and shatter into tiny nanoparticles that the phagocytes remove through your lymphatic system.

This process is repeated over several treatments until your tattoo is removed or faded sufficiently for a cover-up. The number of treatments needed depends on the client and the tattoo being treated. Laser treatments are spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart for your skin to heal and your immune system to flush out the shattered ink. Most clients need 8 to 12 treatments for complete removal and fewer to fade a tattoo for a cover-up. However, all clients require multiple treatments to shatter the tattoo's many layers of ink.


Our Technology

Virtue Tattoo uses the Astanza Trinity, the most powerful laser tattoo removal technology on the market. This industry-leading system combines the power of a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser and Q-switched ruby laser and is trusted by leading physicians, tattoo removal artists, medical spas, estheticians, and laser practitioners worldwide for its reliability, effectivity, and safety. The Trinity produces three wavelengths of light energy (1064 nm, 532 nm, and 694nm) to target and treat ALL tattoo colors, including black, brown, red, orange, green, yellow, violet, and resistant bright blues and greens. Combined, these wavelengths deliver full-spectrum removal while safely treating all skin types on the Fitzpatrick scale, even darker skin tones IV through VI.

The Trinity combines an ultra-short pulse duration of 6,000 picoseconds with high pulse energy to produce intense peak power for optimal ink shattering, faster fading, and better results. Furthermore, Trinity’s homogenous square spot beam reduces treatment overlap and minimizes the risk of unwanted thermal injury. The Trinity is specifically designed to shatter tattoo ink particles without harming any surrounding skin tissue, making this the safest method for removing unwanted ink. This state-of-the-art laser delivers not only superior results but also provides safe treatments you can trust!
