How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

Tattoos are forever, but our feelings about them may not be so permanent. When a patch of your skin is covered with an image you’ve come to regret, every time you see it can bring up feelings of frustration. You don’t need to continue feeling disappointed or limited by your ink. Laser tattoo removal will transform that tattoo from a part of you to a distant memory. The laser is more effective and precise than other forms of removal, allowing for dramatic results without collateral damage to your skin. After an average of a year, our treatments will have your tattoo significantly lightened and even entirely removed.

Laser Tattoo Removal Procedure

Tattoo removal has increased in recent years to accommodate the growing popularity of tattoos. With the demand for effective treatment, skin care experts have found opportunities to research and improve on earlier removal methods.

Laser Skin Solutions Jacksonville provides tattoo removal with a Q-switched laser. This tool uses repeated pulses of powerful light to access pigmented skin. As the pulses are not a continuous laser beam, they’re better for your skin. The laser will pass through external layers of skin to break down tattoo pigment into smaller particles. These particles are then naturally removed by the body over a period of time. Our selective laser will only target pigmented skin, leaving healthy, clear skin untouched. Your natural pigmentation will not be altered by laser treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

Tattoo removal differs from patient to patient. The type and color of the inks used to make your tattoo and the method used will determine the intensity of your treatment. Your treatments will be spaced 4-8 weeks apart to allow the skin to heal. The number of necessary sessions typically ranges from 3-12.

Don’t let a tattoo make you feel less than thrilled with the appearance of your skin. Get in touch with our Jacksonville Beach practice to learn more about removing it.
