A new laser tattoo removal method known as the C4 is having a profound impact on reducing the pain and time required for tattoo removal. The new treatment, developed by Rocky Mountain Laser College, has been shown to decrease pain experienced in half. Another benefit of the C4 technique is that the total time for tattoo removal, which can take from 1 to 2 years, can now be completed in as little as 6 months.

“At least 7 million Americans have tattoos they regret,” said Dr. Dennis Kotelko, M.D, one of Colorado’s lead aesthetic medical directors with over ten years of experience, “Being able to remove their tattoos faster and with less pain will have a tremendous impact.”

“Many people that have wanted laser tattoo removal have been hesitant of the time and pain associated with the treatment,” said Kotelko. “C4 is able to provide the same quality tattoo removal procedures in less time and with less pain. This is a big win for those who have wanted it done, but were unable to do so before because of the time and pain associated with the procedure.”

The C4 method has been clinically tested and has shown all positive results. A study in the American Academy of Dermatology shows that 4 passes with the laser twenty minutes apart, known as R20, caused more breaking up of the ink than conventional methods. This created no more scarring or adverse effects than traditional methods and it removed more ink than a single pass. The C4 technique replaces the first pass of the tattoo laser with a CO2 fractional treatment. “The use of the CO2 fractional treatment combined with a topical anesthetic provides additional numbing and penetration that far surpasses the use of pre-imposed cooling,” said Kotelko.
