Spring Break Regrets? Get Rid of that Tattoo

If you brought home a lasting souvenir – a tattoo – from a recent Spring Break or one years ago, we have the ability to get rid of it for you.

Our laser tattoo removal takes off unwanted tattoos and pigmented lesions (sunspots, freckles, etc.). It emits a highly focused beam of laser light, which passes harmlessly through the outer layer of the skin and is absorbed primarily by the tattoo ink or the excess pigment within the lesion.

Here are some factors to consider if you want to remove a tattoo, according to a recent story in the New York Daily News.

  • Size and color of a tattoo
  • A person’s skin color (lighter skin makes it easier to remove a tattoo)
  • The date the ink was embedded. The paper says that small, monochrome tattoos that are more than a few years old can be zapped in a few minutes.

Depending on the size and location of the tattoo or lesion, each of our treatments usually takes about 10-30 minutes. Some faint tattoos and pigmented lesions will fade completely after only one treatment, though most may require five treatments or more. Treatments are spaced six to eight weeks apart to give your body sufficient time to fully eliminate loosened particles of ink or pigment.
