TATOO REMOVAL

Tattoo Removal is more safely and effectively done with lasers.

Lasers remove tattoos by breaking up the pigment colors with a high-intensity light beam. When the proper wavelength is applied, the ink absorbs the energy preferentially, causing it to break down. Black tattoo pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths, making it the easiest color to treat. Other colors can only be treated by selected lasers based upon the pigment color.
The body’s natural healing processes remove broken down pigment over time.

To completely get rid of a tattoo, it will take several treatments. But after each visit, your tattoo should become progressively lighter.

Is this for me?
This is for patients who have decided to permanently remove their tattoos.

How long does it take and how often can I have it done?
Complete laser tattoo removal requires numerous treatment sessions, typically spaced 4-8 weeks apart. The length of each session depends on the amount of tattoos being removed.

How long is the downtime?
There could be pain and redness after each session and patients must take extra care to prevent infection of the treated area. The treated area could feel sensitive for about 2-3 days.
