Looking to remove or lighten unwanted tattoos without scarring? At Georgia Skin Cancer & Aesthetic Dermatology, tattoo removal is a safe, non-invasive laser procedure performed exclusively by one of our licensed aetheticians. We use a state-of-the-art laser system that delivers ultra-short pulses of energy to shatter the tattoo ink, which your body then eliminates through the lymphatic system. Laser tattoo removal precisely targets the pigments of your tattoo without affecting the outer layers of your skin.
Depending on factors such as its size, color, the type of ink used, the quality and depth of ink placement, it could take as few as one or two treatments – or as many as four to six – to remove the tattoo. As such, your tattoo removal appointments are scheduled four to eight weeks apart, providing enough time for the pigment to disperse between treatments.
Tattoo removal treatment usually results in minimal and temporary side effects, such as a burning or stinging sensation. However, the pain can be managed with a topical anesthetic, and our specialists will do all they can to make the treatment as painless and comfortable as possible. After the procedure, you will be provided with care instructions. You should avoid exposure to sunlight and apply sunscreen, as necessary.
