Tattoo Removal

How does laser tattoo removal work?

The skilled team a Aesthetics By Family Care has extensive experience performing tattoo removal using the Alma™ laser. This advanced laser system offers virtually painless tattoo removal and impressive results.

The focused light energy delivered by the Alma laser penetrates your skin to break apart the pigment in your tattoo. The laser also stimulates your body to eliminate the tiny particles of pigment through your lymphatic system. And it triggers a healing response that promotes collagen and elastin production, and increases circulation to help rebuild fresh new skin in the area of your former tattoo.


What should I expect during laser tattoo removal treatments?

During your treatment, you’ll recline comfortably while your Aesthetics By Family Care provider passes the laser handpiece repeatedly across your tattoo. The Alma laser is equipped with a unique cooling system that makes laser tattoo removal virtually painless. 

You may have some redness or irritation after your session, but these typically subside quickly. Over the next several weeks, you’ll notice that your tattoo appears more and more faint, as your body gradually eliminates the pigment from your system.

 

How many tattoo removal treatments will I need?

During your initial consultation, your Aesthetics By Family Care expert carefully examines your tattoo and then designs a customized treatment plan. Factors that determine how many treatments are necessary include:

  • Location on your body
  • Age of tattoo
  • Depth of pigment

The colors used in your tattoo will also affect your treatment plan. Black pigment responds best to laser therapy while other colors take longer for the light to penetrate and destroy.

Most of the time, a series of treatments is needed for best results. Your skin will need to heal between treatments completely. After every treatment, your tattoo will be less and less noticeable.

 

Can my tattoo be completely removed?

This also depends on the location, age, and color of your tattoo. Smaller tattoos that are mostly black in color can be entirely or almost completely removed. 

Larger, more colorful tattoos may not be removed entirely, but they can be significantly reduced to the point where they’re barely noticeable. Most people report being extremely satisfied with their tattoo removal results.

You can end the embarrassment of a tattoo you no longer enjoy. Schedule a tattoo removal consultation by calling Aesthetics By Family Care today, or make an appointment online.
