Tattoo Removal

Sometimes your permanent body artwork needs to be… less permanent.  Our go-to tattoo removal cosmetic procedure uses a laser treatment to make changes to your prior ink.

Whether you are making room for new art or looking to erase a previous tattoo decision, laser treatments can be used to effectively remove the pigmentation in your skin.

Our PiQo4 laser is the gold standard in laser tattoo removal with two cutting edge technologies combined, allowing more color clearance in a faster time.  This means better clearance, fewer sessions, and less ghosting than with other systems.

How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

PiQo4 laser technology targets both large and small tattoo particles simultaneously, breaking them into tiny particles that are naturally removed by your body. The laser targets only the ink, and will not harm the surrounding skin. The versatility of the PiQo4 allows for precise treatment of varying particle sizes and tattoo colors. The Pico speed of the laser allows for better color clearance and faster results.

 

Laser Tattoo Removal Results

All Tattoo removal treatments typically consist of a series of anywhere from 2-10 sessions, scheduled 6-8 weeks apart until the desired removal outcome is met. The number of treatments will depend on the kind and color of ink used, as well as the amount of coverage. Your provider can determine how long to wait between appointments based on progress made and your skin type. For the photofacial treatment there is minimal discomfort and no downtime from the laser.  The need for multiple treatments is necessary for desired results.


What Should I Expect During My Laser Tattoo Removal Procedure?

With tattoo removal we do offer topical numbing cream to make you more comfortable during the procedure.  During the session you will hear the laser fire as loud, audible popping sounds, then feel heat over the general area of the skin.  The treated area will feel as if it were sunburned.   Some may blister and lesions will look darker before the skin heals and the lesion improves.  Your provider will give you guidelines for before and after care. 

After Your Laser Tattoo Removal Procedure

Treated areas may swell somewhat and turn red but usually only for a few hours afterwards.  Between treatments, be sure to keep the area out of the sun and covered.  Your provider will give you additional tips for care during your appointment.
