African American tattoo removal
Tataway has the RevLite laser which works on a variety of skins colors, from Caucasian to African American. The RevLite is a q-switched laser, which means it has slower but more potent pulses of energy. This technique works very well for dark skin tattoo removal. Q-switching allows the energy beam to hit the ink directly without impacting the skin around it. African American skin can often be impacted by hypopigmentation, and the less energy that it has to absorb from laser treatments, the better. Because it will require a more conservative approach, African American skin will also require more treatments.
Tataway has a location for NYC tattoo removal. They are located in Midtown East on Park Avenue South between 26th and 27th streets, about a block from the nearest subway station, or a ten minute walk from Grand Central station. You can contact them through their website, or by calling (857)284-4800.
