Laser tattoo removal is a process that uses laser energy to break down the pigments in the tattoo ink. This treatment is available if you no longer wish to have a tattoo due to changes in your taste or if you’re unhappy with the appearance of the tattoo.
Dr. Shah uses the Alma Harmony XL Pro laser technology to target the dark pigments in the ink. The laser breaks apart the ink into microscopic pieces that your body naturally eliminates as waste over time.
To determine if you’re a good candidate for laser tattoo removal, Dr. Shah reviews your medical history, existing health, and the health of your skin. He can use the Alma laser to treat tattoos on nearly every part of your body, including the delicate skin on your arms and face.
To ensure optimal results, Dr. Shah tailors your laser treatment plan for tattoo removal based on the size, location, and colors of your tattoo.
In many cases, multiple laser sessions are necessary to effectively address all areas of ink and eliminate the tattoo completely. You may need more sessions if you have a very large tattoo or a tattoo that features multiple colors.
Dr. Shah can discuss how many treatments you need based on your tattoo and your complexion during your initial evaluation.
The Alma Harmony XL Pro laser system can eliminate unwanted tattoos in just a few in-office sessions. Many treatments take less than an hour and require no anesthesia.
While the laser energy is powerful enough to break apart tattoo ink, it’s harmless to the skin around the treatment area.
Immediately after your laser tattoo removal session, you can return to your usual activities without needing recovery or any downtime. However, your skin will be more sensitive, so you should limit your time in the sun and use high-quality sunscreen.
