Do you have a tattoo that you regret? Perhaps a change in lifestyle or work environment necessitates removal of your tattoo. It may seem like your options are limited after choosing to tattoo your skin, however changes in medical technology and laser therapy can help make your tattoo a thing of the past.
Dr. Gregory Laurence is proud to offer the MedLite C6 laser for patients who are seeking the gold standard in laser tattoo removal. The MedLite laser works by sending light into the skin that is dyed with the tattoo ink. The laser will break up the cells of the skin, allowing them to be absorbed by the healthy, non-dyed skin cells. Unfortunately this process cannot be completed with just one visit and may require several visits.
The number of treatments required to eliminate your tattoo will depend on the type and colors of ink used as well as the size and age of your tattoo. Many patients require at least 8 treatments to completely remove your tattoo.
Tattoo removal is not completely pain free, however, many patients find that it is no more uncomfortable than receiving the first tattoo.
