Laser Tattoo Removal

Laser tattoo removal can seem like a daunting process if you’re unfamiliar with how it works, but when you weigh the good vs. the bad, there’s nothing like knowing that the tattoo you got in college is no longer permanently on your body. Schweiger Dermatology provides the latest in tattoo removal treatment technology and can answer any questions you may have regarding the process or the costs. laser tattoo removal nyc

Tattoo Removal Treatments

There are two different laser tattoo removal treatments available at Schweiger Dermatology; it’s just a matter of finding the right one for your time and budget. Q-Switched laser treatment uses short, high-powered pulses that break up the pigment in the tattoo into tiny particles, which are then naturally flushed out by your body’s immune system. R20 Technique uses the same laser as the Q-Switched treatment, but incorporates 20-minute breaks into a session, allowing for four passes of the laser in one visit. While both procedures use the Q-Switched Laser, the R20 Technique can be used to speed up the process by performing four treatments in one visit. By allowing a 20-minute break in-between sessions, the R20 technique has been shown to be just as effective as the Q-Switched Laser treatment which is a 10-minute procedure, but requires 6-7 visits.

Laser Tattoo Removal Effectiveness

One thing to keep in mind when considering laser tattoo removal is that there is no guarantee that your tattoo can be completely removed. Keep in mind the following factors when thinking about tattoo removal:
  • Tattoo Pigment Color – Yellows and Light Blues are harder to remove.
  • Size of the tattoo
  • Placement of the tattoo on your body.
