What is Laser Tattoo Removal?

Laser tattoo removal is a non-invasive procedure that uses concentrated beams of laser light to break down the pigment in a tattoo.

The laser targets the ink particles, causing them to heat up and shatter into tiny fragments. These small fragments are then gradually flushed out by the body’s immune system over time.

The Benefits of Laser Tattoo Removal

Say goodbye to tattoo regret and hello to a fresh start. Laser tattoo removal offers numerous benefits, making it the go-to solution for those seeking to remove unwanted ink.

  • Effective Results: With advanced laser technology, tattoos can be removed or lightened significantly, resulting in a more faded appearance or even complete eradication of the design.
  • Safe and Non-Invasive: Unlike invasive procedures like surgical excision, tattoo removal is non-invasive and carries minimal risk of scarring or infection.
  • Quick Treatment Sessions: Each treatment session typically lasts only a few minutes, making it convenient for individuals with busy schedules.
  • Suitable for All Skin Types: Regardless of skin tone, it can effectively target pigment without causing damage to surrounding tissues.
  • Customizable Approach: The number of sessions required depends on ink color, depth, size, and tattoo location. Our specialists will tailor a personalized treatment plan based on your specific needs.

Preparing for Laser Tattoo Removal

Before undergoing laser tattoo removal at YES MD Atlanta, there are a few steps you can take to ensure optimal results and minimize potential risks.

  1. Consultation with a Tattoo Removal Specialist: Schedule an initial consultation with one of our experienced tattoo removal specialists. During this appointment, they will assess your tattoo, discuss your goals, and create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.
  1. Avoid Sun Exposure: Protecting the treated area from sun exposure is crucial before your treatment. Sunburn or tanned skin can increase the risk of complications during the procedure and slow the healing process afterward. It’s recommended to always apply sunscreen with a high SPF on any exposed areas before coming in for treatment.
  1. Hydrate and Nourish Your Skin: Properly hydrating and nourishing your skin before your treatment can promote faster recovery and improve overall results. Drink plenty of water before your appointment, moisturize regularly using unscented lotion or cream, and maintain a healthy diet rich in vitamins A and C.

Following these simple steps will prepare you for your session at YES MD Atlanta! Remember that every person’s experience may differ slightly depending on factors such as ink color, age of the tattoo, size, etc., so it’s essential to consult with our experts beforehand for personalized advice.

How Much Does It Cost?

Laser tattoo removal costs can vary depending on several factors, such as the size and color of the tattoo, the number of sessions needed, and the clinic’s location. On average, it can cost anywhere from $200 to $500 per session.

Factors Affecting Pricing

  • Tattoo Size: Larger tattoos require more time and resources to remove, thus increasing the overall cost.
  • Ink Color: Dark-colored inks respond better to laser treatment than lighter colors, so removing colorful tattoos may require additional sessions or higher-powered lasers.
  • Number of Sessions: The number of laser sessions required for complete tattoo removal varies from person to person based on individual factors like age, skin type, and ink density.
  • Location: Laser tattoo removal prices may also be influenced by geographic location and competition among local clinics.

Most people describe the sensation during laser tattoo removal as like getting snapped by a rubber band or experiencing a mild sunburn. However, our skilled technicians at YES MD Atlanta take measures to minimize discomfort by applying numbing cream before the procedure and using unique cooling methods during treatment.

After each laser tattoo removal session, you may experience redness, swelling, blistering, or scabbing on the treated area. These side effects are temporary and usually subside within a week or two.
