Tattoo Removal

Tattoo removal is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses Q-switched YAG lasers to break down ink pigments in a tattoo. This laser technology targets the pigment in the tattoo, heating and breaking it up into smaller particles that can then be absorbed by the body and thus, eliminated. Not only does this procedure effectively fade unwanted tattoos, but the laser technology we use helps minimize hypertrophic scars and surgery-related scarring. You will leave our office with clear, unblemished skin.

  • Purpose: Removes tattoos or surgery-related scarring.

  • Recovery: Avoid UV rays and apply antibacterial ointment to promote healing.

  • Results: Smooth, unblemished skin.

More About Tattoo Removal

How Can I Prepare for Tattoo Removal?

Review your medical history with a healthcare professional. Avoid tweezing or waxing this area. The number of treatments needed to achieve optimal results depends on the size, color, and age of the tattoo.

  • Ensure targeted area of treatment is fully numbed.

  • Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing the day of your procedure.

  • Avoid exposure to UV rays as well as self-tanning products prior to treatment to avoid adverse reactions.

What Can I Expect?

Pain

Tattoo removal can cause some discomfort or a sensation of heat during the treatment, however, most patients find it tolerable. Your skin will be numbed with an injection of a local anesthetic. Tattoo removal is safe for most skin types, but certain skin conditions or medical issues may affect the effectiveness of the treatment.

Recovery

Downtime may vary from patient to patient, but generally, recovery will take about three to five days. Your skin may appear red and feel sensitive for a couple days following your treatment. Apply antibacterial emollients until it appears completely healed. To prevent any irritation or damage, avoid UV exposure and apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily.

Results

Following your tattoo removal treatment, you will experience redness and/or swelling, as well as raised areas of skin, but this fades within two weeks. Darker colors like black and blue are generally easier to remove, while lighter colors like yellow and green may require more treatments.
