What is Laser Tattoo Removal In Queens, NY?

Just as laser therapies can safely and comfortably remove hyperpigmentation, lesions and other irregularities in the skin, they can also effectively take tattoo ink out of the skin. Using a high-intensity light team, the pigment of tattoos is broken up by the lasers, destroying tattoos at a cellular level.

Black ink tattoos are the easiest to treat, as they can absorb all laser wavelengths. Color tattoos can also be removed, but require specific lasers and wavelengths depending on the color.

Although our medical team is experienced in this treatment and will make it as painless as possible, patients often describe the sensation of laser tattoo removal as akin to rubber bands snapping against the skin.

The duration and number of removal sessions will vary depending on the size of the tattoo and the area being treated. Smaller tattoos will require few sessions and fewer laser pulses per treatment, and tattoos should look visibly lighter at the end of each appointment.

Am I a Good Candidate for Tattoo Removal?

During your consultation with our medical team, your skin and tattoo will be evaluated to determine approximately how many sessions will be necessary and what lasers will need to be used. Factors such as the age, size and skin tone of the individual as well as the level of professionalism of the tattoo and how far into the skin the pigment reaches.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Laser therapy is proven to be safe and can treat unwanted features in the skin while maintaining overall skin integrity. After treatment, the skin will be temporarily red and flushed, which is a normal reaction to the laser and should subside within a few days.

Although men and women with darker skin tones run a higher risk of complications than lighter-skinned patients, our medical team is highly trained in laser treatment and will choose the right laser types for your individual skin specifications.

Contact Metro Dermatology today to schedule a consultation and get your unwanted ink safely and professionally removed.
