Are you one of the millions of people who have “that one tattoo” you wish you didn’t?

For a while, we have assumed that once tattooed that’s it – the image or words are there for life. Then came tattoo cover-ups, allowing ink that people had grown tired of or grown out of to be covered up with a new design by experienced, talented artists.

Now at Skinny Me, our physicians have been trained in tattoo removal with Laser.  This advanced laser removes tattoos, whether recent, old, blue, green or multi-colored.

While the chosen design of a tattoo is often enough to incite later regret, getting a tattoo in the first place comes with health risks.  Such as allergic reactions. Risks also occur when going an unsafe route to removing tattoos.  This is done by using dermabrasion methods to “sand down” the skin. This can cause a lot of pain and scarring.

A recent survey revealed that nearly one-third of people experience tattoo-regret. Currently, laser treatments are the most common and preferred tattoo removal method. Tattoo removal with laser emits a focused beam of laser light. It passes through the skin’s outer layer before being absorbed by the tattoo ink.  Then breaks the pigment into smaller particles that are eventually removed by the body’s natural healing processes. With today’s technology, tattoo removal responds positively to lasers.

At Skinny Me, we have the highly-advanced laser that uses short bursts of energy for the safe removal of deep tattoos. This includes the removal of multicolored, blue, green, and dark ink in fewer treatments. Multi-colored, blue-green and dark tattoos tend to be the most difficult to eliminate as their pigments are usually more concentrated. They are usually placed deeper within the skin. With patience, persistence, and an experienced laser physician, they may be able to remove dark, stubborn tattoos in fewer treatments without damaging surrounding skin.

While your treatment at Skinny Me depends on many factors.  Most tattoos require at least three to four treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, for tattoo removal.

Please contact Skinny Me to speak to the laser specialist to best determine which type of advanced laser technology will best fit your tattoo removal process.  Also, check out our web page for details on how the laser can remove tattoos.

CoolSculpt is now available at Skinny Me.  We are so excited to announce our new non-surgical fat reducing treatment. We now offer CoolSculpt at our Skinny Me location at 850 Cherry Road Rock Hill, SC, minutes from Charlotte NC. CoolSculpt is safe and effective for both men and women. CoolSculpt is not a substitute for weight loss. Instead, the results are a reduction in fat cells. Specifically designed to treat subcutaneous fat, which is the fat you can pinch, pull or grab. CoolSculpt can treat areas that display this type of fat.*

CoolSculpt works by a process called cryolipolysis, also known as freezing the fat cells. As the fat cells freeze, they go through a process called apoptosis, or cell death, and then are naturally eliminated from the body over a period of a few months. When you gain weight the fat cells in your body get larger, and when you lose weight, the fat cells shrink. Instead of shrinking the fat cells, CoolSculpt is effective at removing the fat cells from the body altogether, resulting in up to a 20%-25% fat reduction in the treated area.*

Once a patient has been assessed, marking the peak areas of fat and applying a protective pad to the skin, the device is applied to the marked areas for treatment. After the cooling device is applied, the patient experiences a gentle suction to the skin, almost like a vacuum. Initially, the skin becomes cold, but after a few minutes, the treatment area becomes completely numb. During the procedure, you may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, and cramping at the treatment site. These sensations subside as the area becomes numb. The CoolSculpting device does not affect the skin because the device is designed to target and freeze fat cells only. After the CoolSculpt procedure, a massage is performed on the treated area to break up the cold subcutaneous fat. The massage is an extremely important part of the procedure to initiate the breakdown of the fat cells. Skinny Me has seen more than a 65% improvement in patient results after the addition of the massage to the treatment.*

Areas of treatment are upper arms, bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks, abdomen, flanks, and thighs.*
