Q-Switched, pigment-specific lasers had been considered the gold standard for removing tattoos. Q-switched laser treatments deliver thermal energy to heat up and break apart ink particles. Because the broken up tattoo ink particles are so small, they are readily removed from the skin. With our state-of-the-art technology, tattoo removal is simpler and easier than ever.
During our tattoo removal consultation, our experienced board-certified dermatologists will outline a treatment plan for tattoo removal based on the age of the tattoo, colors, location on the body, and several other factors. Although noticeable tattoo lightening is seen after each laser session, multiple treatment sessions are required to achieve the best overall result. After treatment, it is important to cover the tattoo and follow any outlined instructions by your physician to ensure proper healing.
