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 Maybe it has faded over time or just no longer represents who you are.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.

"Get QWO with Ho - I've been self-conscious about my cellulite for years. When Dr.Ho mentioned a. new treatment to help with my confidence I couldn't resist! I've just done two of the three treatments so far and I already see amazing results. The cellulite is still there but way smoother and less noticeable since when I first started.The injection itself didn't hurt, but tender and a lot of bruising the day after.Would definitely recommend both the QWO and Dr.Ho for these treatments."- J. / RealSelf / May 13, 2021
"I can't recommend Dr. Ho and his staff enough. He is the only person I have trusted to touch my face with injections or fillers. He always keeps you looking natural but just like a better you! I don't want to look like I'm "trying" too hard! I want to look like best version of me for my age. Recently I did a series of 3 Plasma Pen treatments. I am very happy with the results. He says I will continue to see results for a few months as things tighten and the collagen does its work. There was very minimal downtime involved and no pain. Within a few days I could cover the area with makeup and go about my business. All in all I highly recommend this treatment. The first photo is immediately after a treatment and the 2nd is 6 weeks post-treatment."- T.D. / Google / Apr 30, 2021
"Great Experience! Wonderful Results! - It's always a wonderful experience when I visit Dr. Ho's office. His staff is so kind and caring and I never have to wait for an appointment.

I had no pain other than some very slight tenderness. I followed through with the 3..."- T. / RealSelf / Apr 29, 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.
