What is Trinity laser tattoo removal?
Laser tattoo removal is a permanent solution for removing all or a portion of unwanted tattoos. At Detroit Plastic Surgery, we use the most versatile and powerful tattoo removal system, the Trinity® laser by Astanza®. The Trinity laser targets tattoo ink particles in the skin, shattering them and allowing the ink to be naturally flushed out of the body. Unlike other tattoo removal systems, the Trinity laser can treat even the most resistant ink colors and completely remove them without any scarring. Laser tattoo removal is the most safe, effective and non-invasive way to remove tattoo ink.
Trinity laser tattoo removal treatments are most commonly performed to achieve the following results:
- Effectively remove all tattoo colors including resistant blues, greens, reds, oranges, yellows, purples, black and more
- Permanently remove tattoos on all skin types without any scarring
- Remove ink in preparation for a coverup or to reveal clear, natural skin
- Offer optimal results in fewer treatments when compared to other tattoo removal systems

Step 1 Consultation
A thorough consultation is an important first step when deciding if laser tattoo removal is the right option for you. We thoroughly discuss your desired results and provide an honest, professional opinion on how best to achieve those results. We also make certain that you are a good candidate for treatment, taking into account your skin type, age, health, medical background and other factors that could affect the safety and effectiveness of your treatment. All of our consultations are conducted with the goal of making sure that our patients feel comfortable, confident and informed about laser tattoo removal.
Step 2 Preparation
The day of your treatment, wear comfortable clothing that allows access to the treatment area. Loose-fitting clothing is best, as you may experience some soreness around the treatment area.
Step 3 Treatment
Before your treatment, we will answer any questions that may have come up since your consultation. Every effort is made to make certain that all of your concerns are addressed and you are as comfortable as possible. During the treatment, you will be seated or lying down depending on what area of your body is being treated.
We offer a variety of skin numbing options including lidocaine injections, topical creams and the unique Zimmer Cyro skin cooling technology, which allows us to numb the area before, during and after treatment.
The Trinity tattoo removal laser works by selectively heating and instantly shattering tattoo ink particles upon contact. Using different wavelengths of laser light, we customize your treatment to be most effective at removing the specific colors in your tattoo. The Trinity laser is the fastest and most powerful tattoo removal laser, giving you optimal results in a minimal amount of time.
Virtually all tattoos require multiple treatments to be fully removed, and the removal process can take several months depending on the speed at which your immune system flushes away the shattered ink particles. Treatments are scheduled every six to eight weeks to allow time for your body to flush away the ink and for your skin to heal. Most appointments take only 15 minutes, and the treatment itself takes only a few minutes depending on the size of the treatment area.
Step 4 Recovery
Patients often experience temporary redness, bruising, blistering and scabbing. The side effects are an important part of the immune process and an indication that an effective treatment was performed.
Some patients may experience temporary pigmentation changes in the treatment area, and these changes correct themselves over time. If proper aftercare instructions are followed, scarring is not a common side effect and should not be expected. We will throughly discuss aftercare instructions with you to help you achieve the best and most natural results.
Step 5 Results
After the necessary series of treatments are complete, a tattoo will lighten to the point where it can no longer be seen. During your consultation, we will thoroughly explain what results to expect.
