In France, it is estimated that 25% of individuals under the age of 30 are tattooed. The process involves injecting ink into the dermis, which is the intermediate layer of the skin. Unlike the epidermis, this layer does not regenerate, making the tattoo a permanent body modification.

However, over time, tattoos can lose their appeal due to various factors such as aging, poor execution, or changes in the design, such as spots, deformations, and signs of aging. Social discomfort can also occur, especially when these tattoos are located in visible parts of the body, such as hands and forearms, or when they are perceived negatively by partners or acquaintances. Trends evolve, as do personal tastes, leading to "tattoo removal" - the desire to remove tattoos - or simply an overwhelming feeling of "weariness." In this case, laser technology can come into play to remove these permanent marks from the dermal layer of the skin.

With advances in aesthetic medicine, laser tattoo removal has become a viable option to virtually erase tattoos with minimal visibility after the necessary sessions. Currently, laser tattoo removal is an unmatched solution for eradicating unwanted tattoos.


Tattoo cover-ups are not always a feasible solution when dealing with a poorly executed tattoo. In some cases, the original tattoo is excessively dark or damaged, making it visible even after an attempt to conceal it with a new design.

The cover-up process involves creating a new, larger tattoo to mask the old one. However, this method is not suitable for everyone. Additionally, an attempt to cover up without prior laser tattoo removal sessions significantly limits the options for the new design. Incorporating a few laser tattoo removal sessions before venturing into the cover-up process offers the client more possibilities.


Biolaser Center, a premier choice for Hollywood Spectra laser tattoo removal, operates with the cutting-edge Hollywood SpectraTM laser. This state-of-the-art tool successfully removes all tattoo pigments, from dark inks to red, orange, blue, purple, and green shades, thanks to its different wavelengths.

The Hollywood Spectra laser represents the cutting-edge technology of Nd YAG 1064nm Q-Switched 5ns lasers. It is enriched with a KTP crystal that doubles the frequency to reach 532 nm while offering two additional wave bands: 585 and 650 nm.

With recent advancements, such as the HyperSurge resonator and Intellibeam, as well as the PTP+ mode, the Hollywood Spectra laser stands as the most formidable QS laser available on the market. Moreover, it even surpasses picosecond lasers in terms of performance, making it an unparalleled choice for Hollywood spectra laser tattoo removal.


The laser beam emitted by the laser is transformed into heat absorbed by the ink pigments, allowing the "pulverization" of the ink granules that make up the tattoo. They break into very fine particles through a photoacoustic effect.

The laser beam's absorption is selective to the tattoo pigment, without damaging the surrounding tissues. The wavelength used depends on the tattoo's color and the patient's phototype.

The body's immune system then does its work with reparative cells (phagocytes and macrophages) to eliminate these fragments (lasting 6 months). Thanks to its ultra-fast waves, the laser used for tattoo removal sessions acts without damaging the exposed skin, experiencing the heat for a very short duration.


Hollywood SpectraTM is designed to treat all skin types and all phototypes. Both men and women, on any body part, can avail this depigmentation treatment.


Before starting the treatment, photographs of the tattoo(s) are taken for evaluation purposes to assess the treatment's effectiveness. It is recommended to apply an anesthetic cream (such as Emla) under an occlusive dressing about 1 hour before the session, especially if the treatment area is extensive. The treatment is sensitive but largely tolerable. Additionally, if the tattooed area has hair, it should be shaved 48/72 hours before the session (except for eyebrows).

During the session, the practitioner removes the anesthetic cream and disinfects the area. The patient and the doctor should wear occlusive caps or special protective glasses for the Hollywood Spectra laser throughout the session.

The session begins, and the laser beam scans the entire tattoo one or more times, depending on the pigments present. In the case of a circular tattoo around a joint (finger, elbow, knee, ankle, etc.), the session must be done in two stages with an interval of at least 48 hours to avoid the laser-induced edema compressing the joint (compartment syndrome). During the laser pass, the patient feels like being snapped with an elastic band and hears a sharp clicking sound with each shot.

The duration of each session depends on the tattoo's extent and depth (from a few minutes to sometimes 30 minutes). At the end of the session, the tattoo exhibits transient whitening. Sometimes, small spots (redness) and/or bleeding points and edema (swelling) may appear a few minutes after the treatment.

A healing cream and a dressing are then applied to the entire treated area to be kept for 48 hours. The tattoo should be left open to the air, unless the patient is exposed to the sun. The scar must remain protected from UV rays until it heals.

It is necessary to protect the treated area from the sun for one month after the session.
