Laser Tattoo Removal with Medlite®

Tattoo removal with the state-of-the-art MedLite® laser.  It is exciting to get a tattoo. Many patients got them when they are young and as they get older, the tattoo becomes a source of embarrassment. Many others are worried about tattoos interfering with a job or the image it may relate.

IPL can safely remove most tattoos. It may turn the skin white and sometimes can take a year for the color to return. The amount of sessions can vary, depending on the inks used. Scarring can sometimes be a problem as with any method and most are fully aware of this.

How Does Tattoo Removal Work? The device that we use can treat a variety of inks and colors using four different wavelengths of PhotoAcoustic energy that penetrates the surface of the skin and shatters the ink into microscopic particles.  These harmless particles are then absorbed into the lymph system and passed out of the body as waste.  The easiest tattoos to remove are black because we can use a single wavelength to treat the entire area.  Colorful tattoos take a little more time but they can also be removed with this laser.

It Hurt When I Got It... Will It Hurt When You Remove It? We won't sugar coat it here ... yes, it hurts.  Most patients say that the feeling is similar to actually getting the tattoo.  Every time the laser pulses, it will feel like a rubber band snapping on your skin followed by a feeling of warmth. We have never found a more effective treatment. It takes 4 to 8 visits but removes All color and leaves NO scarring.

READ THIS BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY TATTOO REMOVAL! Now that you know that the journey to "inkless" skin can be a long one, you may decide to look into other options.  That's cool.  But before you decide to do ANYTHING for your tattoo removal, make sure that it won't permanently scar the skin.  There's a lot of stuff out there that are being touted as the "latest-and-greatest" thing ... too many to keep up with.

We've tried several of these over the years and found that one of the most common problems involve a "balm" or some other concoction to remove the tattoo, only to be left with a scar in it's place.  So please ... be careful.  Tattoos are one of the most technical and challenging things to fix in aesthetic skin care.

If You've Already Been Scarred From Trying Another Technique The good news is that if you've been scarred from tattoo removal in the past, we can treat it with laser skin resurfacing.   But since every scar is different, you'll need to come in for a consultation
