A tattoo that is aesthetically unappealing or no longer suits your taste doesn’t have to stay with you for life. Men and women troubled by the appearance of a tattoo now have the option of laser tattoo removal, which eliminates unwanted ink and restores a smooth finish to the skin.
The medical professionals at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery specialize in laser skin resurfacing and dermal therapy treatments. The choice to receive a cosmetic procedure is a personal one, and our trained medical technicians honor your unique needs and preferences, striving to help you meet your cosmetic goals with a customized approach.
If you’d like to learn more about whether laser tattoo removal is right for you, please call 541-687-8900 or contact our office in Eugene today for more details, including tattoo removal cost. We offer free consultations for our cosmetic surgery and medical spa patients.
To prepare for your laser tattoo removal, you’ll first meet with one of our laser specialists at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery to discuss your goals and how to achieve optimal results. Your aesthetician will evaluate your tattoo, review your options for treatment and answer any questions you may have.
Laser tattoo removal can be a great option for men and women of all skin types and colors, though individual results may vary depending on the number of treatments you have.
Men and women considering laser tattoo removal can expect dramatic results from their treatment. At Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we offer PicoSure®, an innovative laser tattoo removal and laser skin resurfacing system that harnesses rapid laser energy to target problem skin areas more gently and efficiently than any other laser tattoo removal method on the market. After a series of treatments, PicoSure® can effectively remove almost all ink colors, particularly blue, green and purple, helping you feel more comfortable in your own skin and and enjoy an improved appearance.
During the treatment process, the PicoSure® laser gently penetrates the skin to eliminate unwanted pigmentation while leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected. Your aesthetician may apply a cooling cream to the treatment site to enhance your comfort. PicoSure® uses photo-mechanical energy that heats and breaks apart tattoo ink into tiny particles. The particles are then eliminated by the body’s natural metabolic processes.
PicoSure® transmits pulses of laser energy to the skin in trillionths of seconds, 100 times faster than the traditional laser tattoo removal methods on the market. Because of its rapid speed and efficiency, people seeking tattoo removal with PicoSure® require far fewer treatments than with the nanosecond laser treatments. Some people may notice an immediate improvement in their tattoo, although the best results are seen after a series of tattoo removal treatment sessions.
To avoid irritating the treated area, you’ll want to take it easy for the first 24 to 48 hours following your laser tattoo removal procedure. You can resume your normal activities after a day or so, but you’ll want to protect the treated skin from sun exposure.
After your procedure, the treated skin may appear red and you may experience some minor swelling. The treatment site may feel similar to a sunburn. Your aesthetician will review specific care instructions with you after your procedure.
Most people experience optimal results after a series of 3 to 4 laser tattoo removal sessions spaced 6 weeks apart.
