Are you one of the many people that have a tattoo they now regret? Changes in lifestyle often bring about changes to opinions regarding body art. For patients that seek effective and safe removal of an old tattoo – we are proud to offer laser removal. It is very important to only receive tattoo removal services from a licensed professional with medical oversight.
One of the most common ways to remove your tattoo is to use a Q-switched laser. Other treatment methods such as dermabrasion, surgery or CO2 lasers are not as effective as the Q-switched laser and may even unnecessarily damage your skin.
It is important to realize that no treatment will eliminate your tattoo in just one visit. Laser tattoo removal typically takes between 6-12 visits. Results depend heavily on the size, color and age of your tattoo.
The pulses created by the Q-switched laser can be warm and feel similar to a rubber band snapping against your skin. Removal should be no more painful than receiving your original tattoo, but may be uncomfortable.
