What is laser tattoo removal?
Dr. Armen Serebrakian describes laser tattoo removal as a treatment that uses specialized laser light to target and break down the ink particles in your tattoo. This process usually requires multiple sessions to achieve desired results and may not be adequate for all tattoos. During a consultation appointment, our team will evaluate you to decide if this treatment will work for your specific needs.
How does laser tattoo removal work?
Laser tattoo removal works by delivering short pulses of powerful laser energy to the tattoo ink particles. The heat from the laser breaks down the ink particles, which are then absorbed by the body and eventually fade away.
What are the benefits of laser tattoo removal?
- Partial or complete removal of a tattoo without scarring
- Relatively quick and painless procedures, typically 15-20 minutes in length
- Effective treatment of stubborn, high-quality inks and tattoos
- The ability to clear the skin safely
- More self-confidence in one’s appearance
- An affordable way to remove unwanted tattoos from visible areas of the skin
What are the risks of laser tattoo removal?
The risks associated with laser tattoo removal are typically minor and can include temporary discomfort, redness, and swelling at the treatment site. In rare cases, more serious side effects such as scarring or skin discoloration may occur.
