Resonic Laser Tattoo Removal

When you first got your tattoo, you probably wanted it to express yourself, share your love for another or commemorate someone or something. As time passes, however, and our tastes and priorities change (but the tattoos don’t), tattoo removal can become a priority. Whether the work was poorly done in the first place or you’ve found it no longer reflects who you are, it can be important to remove an old tattoo and start fresh.

Tattoo removal is performed with a laser (Q-Switched or Pico) which breaks down the ink particles under your skin, allowing your body to flush them out naturally. The problem with tattoo removal is that multiple sessions are required, meaning that full removal of a tattoo often takes anywhere from 1-2 years in most cases.

The reason that tattoo removal takes so many sessions is that each pass of the laser causes microscopic bubbles to form, called vacuoles, which make it impossible to perform more passes until these go away on their own. When the laser is used along with Resonic between passes, the “Rapid Acoustic Pulses” (RAP) soundwaves produced by Resonic cause the vacuoles and pigment to dissipate, thereby allowing additional laser treatment in the same session.

Therefore, when combined with Resonic, a tattoo removal that would take for example 10 sessions and 10+ months can now be performed in 1-3 sessions over 3 months! The process generates no additional heat or collateral damage, offering breakthrough results without breaking or damaging the skin.

We will use the Q-Switched or Pico laser to begin removing your tattoo. Then we will place the RESONIC device on the skin over the area, using it to accomplish three things:

  • Dispersal of the microscopic particles of ink, allowing the body to flush these away quickly and naturally
  • Disruption of the macrophage, a specific type of cell that absorbs the tattoo ink and holds the tattoo in position
  • The breaking apart of steam-filled vacuoles, or bubbles, that develop and form under your skin during the laser process, which disperses the ink further

By clearing away these cellular barriers and allowing the body to naturally dispose of them, RESONIC allows each patient to receive more applications of the laser in a single session, without needing to wait several weeks for the skin to heal. This process elevates regular laser tattoo removal by making it faster, less painful, more effective, and less time-consuming.

What about large tattoos?

Large, tattooed areas are usually divided into multiple treatment sessions because of the extent of the area that must be treated. The surface area addressed during a single session depends on everyone’s individual tolerance for the process. At Coolspa, we will work with you to design the best treatment plan that fits your needs and preferences.

How quickly will RESONIC remove my tattoo?

Ink particle size, tattoo color, depth, age and location all factor into the time it takes to get a tattoo removed and the number of treatments needed.

For typical laser tattoo removal, usually ten or more sessions are needed to fully remove the tattoo.

With RESONIC, full tattoo removal can be possible in as few as three sessions.

RESONIC treatment aftercare:

There is no downtime or long aftercare needed, but initially these guidelines can be followed regarding the treated area:

  • When needed, wash gently with soap and water.
  • If crusting is evident, avoid shaving.
  • Avoid contact sports or other activities that could cause injury to the treated area.
  • Avoid exposure to the sun.
  • Avoid scratching or rubbing.
  • Avoid immersing in water.
  • If irritation occurs, apply a thin layer of Aquaphor.
