In recent years, tattoos have become more prevalent and vastly more colorful than ever before. Simple two-tone tattoos have been replaced with professional, multi-hued tattoos. Conversely, while tattoos are more popular than ever, a steadily increasing number of people want to remove these embellishments. We have in our office one of few ingenious tattoo removal lasers in order to effectively remove these colorful tattoos.
Laser energy is directed at the tattooed area for a fraction of a second, passing harmlessly through the outer layer of the skin and targeting the tattoo ink directly. The laser disrupts the ink, allowing your body to absorb it and break it down naturally.
No. There are several different factors involved in determining how many treatments your particular tattoo will require, but between 3 and 6 treatments is average.
Most patients will not scar, however, scarring or lightening of the skin is a possibility with any laser procedure involving the skin. If you are predisposed to Keloids, or you scar easily, your chances are higher.
Pain is your personal perception and everyone experiences it differently. There is a minimal amount of discomfort involved in this procedure. Prior to your treatment, you can numb the area with a high-power topical anesthetic cream mixture, which is available at our office. As we treat the area, we also cool the overlying skin with our skin cooler, resulting in additional anesthesia. The air is then directed onto the tissue area via a flexible treatment hose.
