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 Maybe it has faded over time or just no longer represents who you are.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
"I highly recommend this place! Dr. Ho is a miracle worker! I got botox for the first time and was a little nervous at first but Dr. Ho explained the whole process and assured me I would love it and he was absolutely right. It didn’t take long at all, just a few minutes and was painless! The wrinkles on my forehead and around my eyes when I smile are gone and it looks flawless! I’ve always been really insecure about my lips, Dr. Ho told me about Kysse lip filler and I love it! My lips are plump and beautiful as ever! Also while you’re there, ask for Sarah to do a hydro facial! She’s amazing and the facial left my face feeling super clean and more youthful than it’s ever been! You won’t regret going here for anything cosmetic or any surgeries you’re considering! Life long customer!"- A.P. / Google / Aug 17, 2021
"I will say I was nervous and apprehensive, about going to this office, just because I had never been to a plastic surgeon etc. The FIRST THING THAT HAPPENED WAS...,they made me feel unbelievably comfortable, I felt so at ease. Dr Ho was so easy to talk to about what I wanted. He also informed me what would work best, they told me the cost and printed it so I could see it on paper. I just can’t say enough good about this place. I highly recommend Dr Ho and his staff...."- K.S. / Yelp / Aug 15, 2021
"I have been a patient of Dr. Ho’s for five years now. I can’t say enough great things about him and all of his team members. They all welcome me with a smile and assist with anything I need. I return time and time again, not only because of Dr. Ho’s amazing work with my Dysport, Restylane Kysse Lip Filler, and the latest and greatest Contour under eye/cheek filler, but because of his ethics, integrity, and overall kindness. He also makes it a priority to learn the latest and greatest technology so he can serve his patients in the best possible way. He has and continues to give me the natural look I desire. I can honestly say, with every visit I leave refreshed, confident, and happy knowing I was taken care of by a doctor and team that truly cares about their patients. I highly recommend him to all my family and friends!"- K.F. / Yelp / Jul 23, 2021
"I can’t say enough great things about Dr KAM and her staff! She truly is the best plastic surgeon and her and her staff are very thoughtful and caring! Not only did she do a wonderful job with my breast augmentation, but she checked on me for several days after my surgery to make sure I was doing well. I had breast cancer last year with radiation on my right breast and Dr KAM is carefully monitoring that side regularly. She has the BEST bedside manner of any doctor I’ve ever had!! I, without a doubt, would recommend her to anyone!!"- H.W. / Yelp / Jun 28, 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.
