Laser Treatments Effective for Tattoo Removal

February 24, 2020

You thought it was a good idea at the time, but now you want that tattoo of yours gone. The good news is that tattoo removal is now easier than ever thanks to recent advances in laser technology. At the office of Dermatology for the Family, you can trust our highly skilled professionals to safely and effectively remove your tattoo, restoring the natural look of your skin.

In most cases, lasers have replaced other tattoo-removal methods, such as creams, dermabrasion, and even the surgical removal of the tattooed skin. Lasers have been proven to remove tattoos with fewer treatments, and they can even treat ink colors that were once difficult to remove.

Although tattoo shops and spas offer tattoo laser removal, the FDA recommends that you consult dermatologists, such as the professionals in our office, who have the medical training needed to consider your health and the health of your skin.

Before a tattoo can be removed, certain things have to be considered, such as how long you’ve had the tattoo, how deeply the ink has penetrated your skin, the colors used in the tattoo and where it appears on your body. During an initial consultation at our office, we will evaluate these issues in addition to your overall health to determine if laser therapy is right for you.

Several laser treatments are usually necessary because the laser cannot safely break down all the pigmented layers in one treatment session. After each treatment, your tattoo will gradually lighten.

The office of Dermatology for the Family is your go-to destination for safe and effective laser therapy for tattoo removal. We have built a reputation for ensuring that our clients get the best treatment possible for all kinds of skin conditions.
