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 Maybe it has faded over time or just no longer represents who you are.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

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.
