Laser Tattoo Removal

Tattoos are incredibly common, with more than 20% of Americans having at least one tattoo. For many patients, after several years of having the tattoo, their feelings have changed, and laser removal is desired.

Laser tattoo removal treatments offer a safe and effective way to remove a tattoo that no longer meets your needs. Whether your personal style has changed, the tattoo reflects a message (or name) you no longer support, or the appearance or visibility of the tattoo is a problem, we have a solution for you.

Procedure

Through a series of short laser treatments, normally spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart, our medical staff will fade your tattoo until it is no longer visible. The laser we use – the Astanza Trinity – is a q-switched Nd:YAG and q-switched Ruby laser that will not cause scarring and is effective against all colors of tattoo ink, including blue and green ink.

How It Works

Each tattoo removal treatment will take only a few minutes, and almost every patient remarks upon how much easier and comfortable the procedure is than they thought. We take measures prior to and during the procedure to assure comfort. There is numbing cream available for the procedure. The laser is used to target the pigment in the tattoo, and through a short pulse of energy, the pigment will be broken into small enough pieces for your body’s immune system to flush away the ink. Over the next few weeks, the tattoo will fade.

This treatment is appropriate for patients of all skin types and side effects are generally temporary and will be discussed with you by your practitioner prior to treatment.
