Laser Tattoo Removal Q & A

What is laser tattoo removal?

Laser tattoo removal is the most permanent, safe way to resurface the skin and eliminate unwanted ink. At North County Dermatology Clinic, the team offers the PicoSure aesthetic laser, which is only used by a handful of medical professionals in the country. With PicoSure, laser technology delivers short bursts of light to the skin, which penetrates and lifts the ink of a tattoo, causing it to gradually fade away. This type of technology is the world’s first safe, effective cosmetic laser for tattoo removal.

Am I a candidate for laser tattoo removal?

The best way to know if you’re a good candidate for laser tattoo removal is to book a personalized consultation with North County Dermatology Clinic. Dr. Knight and his team can evaluate your needs and provide an assessment of what type of treatment plan is best for you and your desired goals.

What results can I expect with laser tattoo removal?

While laser tattoo removal does not produce immediate results, it is highly effective if you have multiple treatment sessions. Most patients will make several appointments to fully remove the tattoo over the course of a few weeks or months. Sessions are usually spaced out about eight weeks apart. Each treatment lasts around 20 minutes, and you start to see gradual results after every session.

During this process, you might need to take special care of your skin to enhance or speed up your results. The expert team gives you a customized treatment plan to provide the best outcome.

What are the benefits of laser tattoo removal?

With laser tattoo removal, it’s possible to remove even dark or stubborn tattoos. There are many benefits to this type of tattoo removal, which include:

  • No scarring or harm to surrounding skin
  • Minimal recovery time
  • Safe and few side effects

Unlike other methods that “sand” or needle the skin, laser tattoo removal is virtually painless and doesn’t cause discomfort during or after the procedure.
