What is Laser Tattoo Removal?
There may be many reasons why you no longer want a tattoo. Perhaps it reminds you of a painful memory. Maybe it has faded over time or just no longer represents who you are. Regardless of the reason, advances in tattoo removal equipment have made it feasible to lighten and maybe even eliminate the undesired tattoo in its entirety. At Beyond Beautiful Texas in Plano, TX, Dr. Kristen Ann Aliano Messina, and board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Vu Ho offer tattoo removal with the PicoSure state-of-the-art laser system. The laser device is known to produce better results than traditional tattoo removal technologies and might necessitate fewer treatments.
"Sarah was thorough, professional and kind. The atmosphere is relaxing and the med spa was spotless."- S.S. / Google / Nov 01, 2019
"Excellent Results from my Lower Blepharoplasty - I was referred to Dr. Ho by my daughter who also had the same procedure. My procedure was done on 9/2020. I am so pleased with my results and have had many complements from my friends saying I look younger and look refreshed. Dr. Ho and his staff are very personal and professional. I was so impressed with the follow up as well as the surgery. He did have to do a small procedure to take care of some sagging under my eyes which was quite successful. He did not charge for the additional procedure. Again, I strongly recommend him for any plastic surgery you may have."- E. / RealSelf / Oct 14, 2021
"Beyond Impressed with Dr. Vu Ho!!! - I was beyond impressed with Dr. Vu Ho and his entire staff!! From the minute I walked in the door, everyone was extremely kind and helpful. Dr. Ho carefully listened to my concerns, and not only suggested, but educated me as to which treatments would provide the very best results. I was looking for something non invasive and with very little down time, and he provided this option for me. My areas of concern were the fine lines and wrinkles on my face, as well as sagging skin on my neck. Dr. Ho recommend a combination of Morpheus8 skin tightening as well as PDO threads. My hopes and expectations were by far exceeded, as I couldn’t be happier with the smoothing, tightening and overall appearance of my skin. I am new to Texas, and as a healthcare worker with many years in plastic surgery, I was so impressed with how Dr. Ho is ahead of the curve on offering the latest and best technology. I wouldn’t go to anyone else after my experience at Beyond Beautiful!!!"- J. / RealSelf / Sep 27, 2021
"Dr Vu Ho at Beyond Beautiful is amazing. I had a minor procedure done and felt no pain. He’s very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. His staff is really nice and friendly."- D.T. / Yelp / Sep 23, 2021
"Chin Finally Symmetrical! - I had the best experience with Dr. Wu Ho. This was my 3rd time getting chin surgery and finally the last one. I’m so happy to be done with this chin journey. I had a chin implant put in 7 years ago by a surgeon in Buenos Aires which I had removed a year later from it moving out of place. (Lesson learned) I had scar tissue left over which made my chin look asymmetrical. People only noticed once I pointed it out (like most of our flaws). I dealt with this for years and couldn’t take photos from straight on. I’m so happy to finally have a symmetrical chin & can wear my hair down the middle again. I did this procedure under local anesthesia & pronox (not for the weak). I didn’t have any pain during the hourlong procedure but I think I’d just rather be asleep & unaware of surgery happening. I only took the prescribed painkillers for the first day. Healing was quick. Scar looks great 3 months later. The staff are super friendly and professional and i felt like I was under great care. They spent plenty of time answering my questions and making me feel safe. I highly recommend Dr Ho & his team! I got a facial from their Esthetitian the week after surgery once my bandage came off which felt like pure heaven & a month later some cheekbone filler which turned out great!"- A. / RealSelf / Aug 31, 2021
Laser Tattoo Removal Candidates
There are several factors that could increase the success of your removal procedure. Good candidates for this procedure:
- Have a strong immune system. A strong immune system improves the body’s ability to break down and eliminate the ink properties.
- Are in good overall health. Not smoking and eating a well-balanced diet aid the body’s immune system in performing at full capacity.
- Have a deep contrast between the color of the ink and the pigment of the skin. The greater the contrast, the greater the result.
- Have older tattoos. The older a tattoo is, the better it will respond to treatment.
OUr laser Tattoo removal Technique
As soon as it is decided that your skin is ideal for laser tattoo removal, the tattoo will be prepared with a careful cleansing and an application of numbing cream. The treatment will begin by passing the applicator over the tattooed skin as it emits energy and pulsing laser light. The time it takes to complete the procedure varies and depends on the type and size of the tattoo. In some circumstances, the tattoo will require multiple sessions before obvious results are seen. This will all be discussed during your consultation.
What to Expect
At the end of each treatment, a topical cream will be applied to your treated skin along with bandages to protect the area. You may notice swelling, redness, and sensitivity. You could also feel like you have a sunburn and experience slight scabbing. It is important to adhere to aftercare instructions precisely to speed up the healing process. Once the skin has healed, your next treatment session can be scheduled. Sessions typically will not be scheduled less than 4 – 7 weeks of each other.
