Laser Tattoo Removal
SkinRhümMD is excited to offer our newest laser treatment, Laser tattoo removal. Whether you’ve outgrown your tattoo mentally or physically, are looking to fade your current tattoo to replace with a cover up or are looking for your tattoo to be completely removed, SkinRhümMD can help.
Unlike earlier generations of laser tattoo removal, SkinRhümMD’s newest laser can effectively treat tattoos of all colors thus greatly improving the success rate of removing and fading these unwanted tattoos. Laser tattoo removal works by using dual frequency beams to selectively target pigment in the ink of the tattoo beneath the skin. There is no excision or abrasion as the pigment is broken up and removed through your body’s natural processes of elimination over time.
Treatment and number of treatments with the laser varies from patient to patient depending on the age, size, color and type of tattoo (amateur or professional). Because each tattoo is unique, tattoo removal techniques must be tailored to suit each individual tattoo. Treatment is quick and downtime is minimal post laser tattoo removal procedures. Medical grade numbing creams are available pre laser tattoo removal treatment and healing times are usually within a few days to a week post procedure.
It is estimated that close to 10% of the North American population has some sort of tattoo. Eventually, up to 50% of these tattooed individuals may want to receive laser tattoo removal. All of SkinRhümMD’s procedures are performed by a certified laser technician with extensive experience in laser tattoo removal. All of our technicians work directly under physician supervision.
