Unwanted tattoos are a common complaint among many men and women. Maybe your ink conjures up bad memories of your rebellious youthful past, or perhaps your partner isn’t as in love with your tribal tattoo as they are with you. Whatever the reason you’re unhappy with your tribal tattoo, laser removal may be the solution for you.
At Laser Skin Care Center, we use advanced laser technology to safely and effectively remove tattoos of all shapes, sizes, and colors. Our go-to treatment for tattoo removal is the Q-switched Alexandrite laser due to its ability to be customized to your individual needs.
How Long Does Tattoo Removal Take?
You may want your tattoo gone as quickly as possible, but removal won’t be as easy as getting the ink in the first place. You’ll need a series of 3-10 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart to rid yourself of that bad tattoo. The good news is, laser tattoo removal has come a long way in the past decade, making treatments very tolerable.
The number of treatments needed depends on a few factors including the age of your tattoo, the size, and of course, the color. The Alexandrite laser targets and breaks down darker pigmentation within the skin. Darker, older tattoos like a traditional tribal tattoo that you got in your youth, will likely need fewer treatments than light colors like orange, red, or pink.
Our laser tattoo removal treatments are quick and easy. Most patients are in and out of the office within the hour. You’re free to go about normal activities immediately following your treatment with minimal restrictions. Because your skin will be ultra-sensitive to sun-exposure, you’ll need to wear sunscreen and/or protective clothing to cover the tattoo site throughout treatment.
Tattoo Removal Results
Results are gradual, but you can expect your tattoo to fade with each session. Over time, your skin will be completely free of dark pigmentation caused by your initial ink. Alexandrite lasers leave skin blemish-free without residual scar tissue.
At the time of your consultation, one of our skilled laser technicians can perform an assessment and determine if laser tattoo removal is right for you. A treatment plan can then be established based on your individual needs. We’ll help you be tribal tattoo-free before you know it!
