Our providers at Greater Miami Skin and Laser Center are pleased to provide patients in the Miami area with a wide range of advanced solutions for today’s skin and body concerns. Patients who have unwanted tattoos on their skin may feel as though they have made a permanent mistake. Fortunately, patients can now seek removal with treatments such as laser tattoo removal available at our facility.
How does laser tattoo removal work?
Patients interested in removing unwanted tattoos can schedule a consultation visit with our team to educate themselves on the process. With laser light, dermatologists can remove pigmentation from tattoos from the skin. This is done by breaking down the pigments and allowing the body to naturally absorb and eliminate them. With each treatment, the tattoo will fade until it is no longer visible on the skin. It is important that patients understand that laser tattoo removal—to achieve full removal results—requires several treatments to achieve. With each treatment, the inks are broken down further and results can be seen.
How many treatment sessions will I require?
To achieve full removal, the number of treatment session will be more than those who are interested in just fading the tattoo before having a coverup image completed. There are various factors that affect the removal of a tattoo, including:
- The age of the tattoo
- The colors used in the tattoo
- The quality of the inks used in the tattoo
- The color and ethnicity of the patient’s skin
- The response of the pigmentation to each treatment
To determine an approximate number of treatment sessions, patients have an evaluation performed by their dermatologist beforehand for an accurate quote.
