How does laser tattoo removal work?
Our laser technology at Athena Plastic Surgery works to break up pigmented coloring with high-intensity beams of light. Darker colored tattoos are easier to address, as darker colors are able to better absorb laser wavelengths as opposed to lighter colors.
How many laser tattoo removal sessions will I need?
Our team will thoroughly examine the desired tattoo for removal during your consultation. A custom treatment plan will be tailored to you based on:
- How old the tattoo is
- The size, shape, and location of the tattoo
- The color(s) of the tattoo
Skin tone and how deep in the skin the tattoo pigment lies may also determine your treatment plan and results.
What can I expect from laser tattoo removal?
During your laser tattoo removal treatment, protective eyewear will be provided to you. A member of our team will assess your skin’s response to our laser to help determine the most effective amount of energy needed for an optimal treatment. Beams of laser light will pass over the superficial layer of skin where the tattoo is located.
Larger tattoos may need several passes over them with the laser in order to effectively treat them. Following each of your laser tattoo removal sessions, you may notice the treated tattoo to appear gradually lighter.
