WTF is tattoo removal?

Did you know that 472 million people around the globe have tattoos? For centuries, tattoos have helped civilisations define, differentiate and express themselves.

Yet of that number in the millions, 1 in 3 people think about removing their tattoos. A space in the market opened up. Tattoo removal was born.

What the f*ck is tattoo removal?

Since the early days of tattooing, people have found creative ways to try and remove them. Various methods and tools were used to try and get rid of the permanent ink, some more invasive and painful than others. Thanks to modern technology, most tattoo removals are now done with professional high-tech lasers with much more effective results.

How does it work?

Laser tattoo removal works by applying intense pulses of light to the tattoo ink. This breaks the ink particles down small enough so that the body’s immune system can naturally clear the pigment from the skin.

But not all lasers are created equal.

The high frequency of many common lasers is often too harsh on the skin, leaving long-lasting scars and blisters behind. Damaging the skin’s barrier is one of the main reasons tattoo removal sessions happen so infrequently because the skin can’t be retreated until the barrier is healed. It leads to a slower removal process that can take some years to finish.

Here’s how NAAMA’s LightSense technology leads to better results:

  • Smaller spot size lowers the risk of pain and skin damage

  • Drastically faster repetition of the LightSense laser enables rapid and effective coverage

  • Significantly less energy reduces pain and risk of skin damage

  • The shorter the pulse, the less time the laser beam is in the skin, the lower the pain and risk of skin damage

Our low-energy laser significantly reduces any chance of blistering, scarring or lasting damage, which means less downtime between treatments and fast tattoo removal results.

Why NAAMA’s removal takes months, not years.

NAAMA’s breakthrough skin-safe technology is a first of its kind. It’s the only full stack tattoo clearing brand in the world offering less painful, skin-safe and FDA-cleared treatments with over 18,000 sessions to date.

And like your tattoo, your removal is totally personal.

A tattoo’s depth, density and colour all have an impact on treatment length. Did you know that tattoos located closer to your heart have better circulation? It’s true, and they make for a faster removal.

Removal is more than skin deep.

The stronger your immune system is, the more efficiently it will flush away ink particles. Your body is a (tattooed) temple, so a healthy diet and lifestyle will help you see results.
