While laser tattoo removal is a very tolerable procedure, some clients experience mild discomfort, similar to getting a tattoo applied. Regerts Ink Removal wants to make the laser tattoo removal process as pain-free as possible. That’s why we use the latest in cold-air and skin numbing technology. To provide the most comfortable laser treatment experience, we’ve invested in the Zimmer Cryo 6 cooling machine. The Cryo 6 is used to minimize pain and thermal injury before, during, and after each laser treatment.
The Cryo 6 is the #1 skin-numbing solution and directs cold air (-30ºC) deep into the skin, mitigating any discomfort or pain associated with the laser.
The Cryo 6 features a focusing tip for precise numbing on smaller tattoos and permanent makeup removal on the face. Within a matter of seconds, the Cryo 6 can cool the skin for fast, continual numbing throughout the entirety of your laser session.
The Trinity laser is backed by Astanza, the leading provider of laser tattoo removal technology. This groundbreaking technology is trusted by leading physicians, tattoo removal practitioners, medspas, and tattoo artists worldwide for its efficacy, safety, and precision in treating various tattoos and unwanted pigments.
The Astanza Trinity is an FDA-cleared, triple-wavelength, Q-switched Nd:YAG laser that targets and shatters the widest range of tattoo colors. The Trinity’s 1064 nm, 532 nm, and 694 nm wavelengths are safe to use on all patient skin types and eliminate ink in all tattoos, including multicolored tattoos with vibrant green and blue pigments that are considered untreatable by other lasers.
Peak power is what truly makes the difference for better ink shattering faster fading. The Trinity’s high-speed pulse duration and high pulse energy create extreme peak power for optimal ink shattering and faster fading. Furthermore, the Trinity features a homogenized flat-top beam to evenly distribute energy and deliver safer application.
Astanza Trinity clients experience safer treatments, faster ink fading in fewer sessions, and full-spectrum removal results across all tattoo colors and skin types.
Laser tattoo removal speeds up the fading process your immune system naturally carries out over a lifetime. During a tattoo removal treatment, the tattoo removal laser fires light energy into the skin, where tattoo ink particles selectively absorb the light based upon the chosen wavelength. The light absorption causes the ink particles to shatter into smaller fragments. With these ink fragments having been reduced to a smaller size, your immune system can then naturally remove the fragmented particles, resulting in the fading of your tattoo. This process is repeated over multiple treatments until each layer of tattoo ink is shattered and removed.
Most patients require a minimum of five to ten treatments for complete tattoo removal. However, patients with faded tattoos or those interested in fading a cover-up tattoo usually require as little as two to four treatments. The number of treatments needed to derive the desired results will vary for every client. It depends on various factors, including your tattoo’s age, colors, location, ink density, patient health, pre-existing scarring, and more. Don’t forget that not everyone wants complete tattoo removal, and sometimes the desired effect is some minor fading to prepare for a cover-up tattoo.
Getting a tattoo can take hours in contrast to laser tattoo removal, which is a very speedy procedure. Depending on the size of the tattoo being treated, a single tattoo removal treatment can last as little as one to 15 minutes. Treatment times may take a little longer if multiple tattoos are being treated in a single session.
The overall tattoo removal procedure is very tolerable. Many clients report that tattoo removal feels similar to a rubber band snapping the skin. Others comment it feels like the popping you sometimes get with bacon grease.
Regardless of your pain tolerance, Regerts Ink Removal utilizes the Zimmer Cryo 6 cooling device to provide maximum comfort and skin numbing to the skin before, during, and after your treatment. Not only does the Zimmer Cryo alleviate the discomfort, but it also reduces unwanted risks of thermal injury.

Our Trinity laser uses innovative technology to specifically target unwanted tattoo ink without harming any surrounding skin tissue. That said, patients may experience temporary redness, itchiness, swelling, scabbing, blistering, or skin discoloration. These side effects are natural reactions to the laser and will heal over the weeks following treatment. In addition, we will provide thorough aftercare instructions to each client to ensure their skin is taken care of outside of our practice.
