To completely remove a tattoo, new treatments using lasers, which are more effective and cause less scarring than older surgical excision or dermabrasion procedures, can eliminate your tattoo with minimal side effects. Usually multiple laser sessions are needed to achieve the best results. At COSMED we will make an evaluation to determine the approximate number of sessions that you will require.
Results vary from person to person, consult your dermatologist to know how many sessions do you need for your tattoo removal
How does Q-switched laser treatment work?
The Q-switched laser is used to remove unwanted brown spots, sun freckles, or tattoos from your skin. The laser energy pulse, which is in billionths of a second, releases the pigment into the skin so it can be naturally reabsorbed and disposed of by the body.
The laser energy feels like many tiny hot dots on your skin. The discomfort is greatly reduced (but not eliminated) by a stream of cold air directed at the spots during treatment. Tattoo removal without anesthetic can be painful, so we always attempt to anesthetize the area before performing tattoo removal.
