Tattoo Removal Laser
The only Tattoo Removal Laser in the TriState Area Ashland, KY; Portsmouth, OH; Huntington, WV
We are now offering the latest technology in Tattoo Removal. This laser is safer than the traditional methods because of its unique ability to selectively treat the tattoo. It will eliminate the tattoo while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. We can treat all tattoos, amateur or professionally done. We can remove ALL colors of pigment. The effectiveness of the laser is dependent upon the age, location, depth, composition of the pigments and type of tattoo.
How does this laser work?
This is a Q-Switch laser. This laser goes directly into the pigment and breaks the pigment up. Over the next 4-6 weeks the body will absorb these particles and dispense them.
All areas are treatable except eye lids and lips. All tattoos will take a series of treatments. You can expect desired results between 8-12 treatments. These treatments can be performed every 6 weeks as needed.
Is the tattoo laser right for me?
It depends on your skin color. We cannot use this laser on dark skin or freshly tanned skin. You will be asked to stay out of the sun and tanning bed for 2 weeks prior to your procedures. If you are on photo-sensitive drugs you need to be off these medications for 7-10 days. If you have been on Accutane, we ask that you wait 6 months before you begin your procedures.
Treatments vary from patient to patient, depending on many factors of the tattoo. All patients will be asked to wear eye protection. The skins reaction to the laser is tested during the first visit to determine the most effective treatment. Treatment consists of placing the hand piece against the surface of the skin and activating the laser. Many patients describe it feels like a rubber band snapping against the skin. ALL tattoos will require retreatments, necessitating multiple patient visits.
Is it Comfortable?
This laser is less painful and requires less recovery time then many others. The degree of discomfort varies with each person. Most patients DO NOT require pain management. In some cases, depending on the location and pain tolerance, we may elect to use some form of anesthetic.
Recovery is easy. You basically care for the removal the same way you did when you received the tattoo. Cleanse gently with anti-bacterial soap for 2-3 days. You need to apply antibacterial ointment or A&D ointment to the treated area for 2-3 days. The use of a gauze bandage may be beneficial for the first day or so. No physical exercise, aerobics, lawn work, contact sports for 24 hours. And last but definitely not least, NO SUN or TANNING the area for 30 days.
