Is tattoo removal right for me?
To find out if you’re a candidate for tattoo removal at Thomas Dermatology, your specialist reviews your medical history, discusses your desired outcome, and examines your tattoo.
PicoSure lasers work well on all skin colors and types. If you have a tattoo you don’t like, chances are, tattoo removal is right for you.
Your provider lets you know what to expect during tattoo removal and how to prepare for your treatment.
What happens during tattoo removal?
Prior to tattoo removal at Thomas Dermatology, your specialist can numb the treatment area. While you relax in a comfortable chair, they use a handheld device to emit laser energy into targeted areas of your skin.
You wear special glasses to protect your eyes from the light of the laser. The time each treatment session lasts depends on the size, shape, and color of your tattoo.
What should I expect after tattoo removal?
After tattoo removal treatments, your skin may be a little red, swollen, or tender, but these side effects don’t last long.
Make sure to keep the treatment area clean and protect your skin from the sun. The Thomas Dermatology team often recommends a series of treatments spaced apart to give you the best results.
