Laser Tattoo Removal Q & A

How does laser tattoo removal work?

When you choose laser tattoo removal at Dermatology Associates of the Palm Beaches, your provider uses a leading-edge laser to direct high-intensity light beams into the pigment of your tattoo. This causes the pigment to break apart, at which point your skin can absorb it and flush it out of your body, reducing the visibility of the tattoo. 

Treatment with the laser goes quickly, and laser tattoo removal appointments for small-to-medium-sized tattoos often take 20 minutes or less. 

Different tattoos require different levels of laser treatment. Small, dark-colored tattoos generally respond well to laser treatment, while brightly colored tattoos often require more laser treatment sessions. 

Talk to your Dermatology Associates of the Palm Beaches provider about the tattoo you want to remove so they can let you know what to expect during the process. 

What should I expect after laser tattoo removal?

Today’s lasers deliver better results with less discomfort than previous laser tattoo removal processes. It’s normal to experience some irritation, redness, or swelling after treatment. 

Your Dermatology Associates of the Palm Beaches provider gives you care instructions to moderate side effects and support your skin’s healing in the area. 

Most tattoos require repeat laser treatment to fully clear from your skin. Your provider usually schedules these sessions about 6-8 weeks apart. They let you know how many treatments you likely need based on your specific tattoo. 

Can your laser technology help me get rid of previously laser-treated tattoos?

Yes. Because laser technology has advanced so significantly in recent years, people with previously treated tattoos can often benefit from laser tattoo removal at Dermatology Associates of the Palm Beaches.

Using their expertise and the latest laser technology, the skin care specialists can help people with tattoos that weren’t fully removed by a previous laser treatment or home remedies. These new laser treatments are most effective when you don’t have scarring that would get in the way of the laser’s ability to treat the pigment of your tattoo.
