WHAT IS LASER TATTOO REMOVAL?
There may be a number of reasons why you no longer want a tattoo. Whatever the reason, advancements in tattoo removal technology have helped make it feasible to significantly diminish the appearance of an unwanted tattoo. At Arizona Skin Institute in Surprise, AZ, skilled dermatologist Dr. Jay Mehta offers tattoo removal with the Alma™ Harmony XL Pro laser system. With this laser technology, dark and multi-colored tattoos can be safely and effectively treated with minimal risks of scarring or uneven patches of skin color (hypopigmentation). If you live in the Greater Phoenix area, give our office a call to schedule a consultation with our caring team.
IS LASER TATTOO REMOVAL RIGHT FOR ME?
There are a number of factors that can contribute to the success of your tattoo removal treatment. Ideal candidates for laser tattoo removal:
- Have considerable contrast between the color of the ink and their skin tone — the higher the contrast, the greater the result.
- Have older tattoos because older body art has a tendency to respond better to laser removal treatment.
- Have a strong immune system, which helps the body’s ability to break down and eliminate the ink properties.
- Are in overall good health. Laser tattoo removal is generally not recommended for those with certain medical conditions, such as poorly controlled diabetes or active psoriasis.
LASER TATTOO REMOVAL TREATMENT
On the day of your appointment, we'll thoroughly cleanse your tattoo and surrounding skin and apply a topical anesthetic. One of our certified skincare professionals will then pass the Alma Harmony XL Pro device over the surface of your skin while it emits pulsing wavelengths of light. The time it takes to complete the procedure varies depending on the type and size of the tattoo. On average, most people will require multiple sessions before seeing noticeable results. We'll discuss all of these factors with you during your consultation.
