New Technique for Fast Tattoo Removal

Our parents always told us not to get a tattoo, because the tattoo removal process was incredibly painful and could take years.  We don't advocate going against your family's wishes, but we are happy to report that this is no longer the case.  For years, having a tattoo removed meant trying many different lasers and undergoing years of treatment. Dr. Schweiger is happy to report that, "The new technique for tattoo removal allows us to remove your tattoo in as little as one visit.  Most patients require 2-5 visits, but this is a great improvement over the days of 20 visits in the past." The new fast tattoo removal technique allows for up to four treatments to be performed during each visit.  Although tattoo removal still requires an average of 4-20 treatments, we can perform four of these treatments on the same day, which speeds up the tattoo removal process significantly.  Additionally, we use a localized numbing medication to keep the experience pain-free for your entire visit. Each tattoo removal treatment is performed at a twenty minute interval.  It can actually be a relaxing experience; many of our patients bring a book or their iPad to relax with between treatments.  The length of the laser tattoo removal treatment itself depends on the size of your tattoo.  We used multiple wavelengths of laser, in order to target all of the colors of your tattoo. The new fast tattoo removal is not only faster due to multiple treatments performed during each visit, but studies have demonstrated that multiple treatments in a single visit may allow for the laser to penetrate into deeper layers of the skin.  This may allow the lasers to target ink at great depths than a single treatment can reach.
