New Year, New Start: Laser Tattoo Removal 101

Do you have a tattoo that you always try to hide? Does the design bring back memories you would rather forget? You are not the only one! Recent statistics tell us that almost 30% of US adults have a tattoo and 25% of them regret it. Luckily, technology is on your side with laser tattoo removal.

Azia Medical Spa offers custom laser tattoo removal treatments to get rid of an old tattoo, restore the blank canvas of your skin, and open the door to newer, better memories—after all, some memories weren’t meant to last forever.

If your tattoo has become less of a fond memory and more of an unpleasant reminder, consider finally taking a step toward renewal. Start 2022 off right with Azia Medical Spa’s laser tattoo removal treatment.

What is Laser Tattoo Removal?

Laser tattoo removal was initially introduced by Dr. Leon Goldman in 1967. This breakthrough technology has given people around the world a chance to get rid of old tattoos that have faded over time or cause unwanted memories. Today, over 100,000 procedures are performed each year, providing clients with a fresh start!

How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

Laser tattoo removal treatments are performed by using a handheld laser device that delivers a high-intensity light beam to the tattooed area. From here, the light is absorbed by the ink pigments, breaking the pigment down without damaging the surrounding skin.

Each tattoo and skin type will react differently to this treatment, which is why it’s important to start with a consultation. During the consultation, we will assess your skin, desired results, and tattoo conditions to ensure the proper outcome from your removal treatment.

What To Expect

Our trained professionals at Azia Medical Spa will guide you through each step of the laser tattoo removal process. Initially, you can expect a simple spot test to be performed at the beginning of your treatment to ensure the laser is on the proper setting for your skin type. Our laser tattoo removal technology allows us to adjust the light beams based on tattoo size and skin condition. For smaller and more faded tattoos, fewer pulses and less intense light beams will be used. Whereas with larger and more vibrant tattoos, more intense light beams with quicker pulses can be expected. 

The number of treatments required to fully remove a tattoo varies based on tattoo size, age, and color. We typically recommend anywhere from five to ten treatments for optimal results, which can be discussed with our technicians during your consultation. In order for your skin to process the treatment, we space the sessions out six to eight weeks apart. You can expect to see results a few months after the process starts, with the most visible improvements after the third treatment.

This treatment is generally less painful than getting a tattoo. The tattooed area is considered to be scar tissue, so it may be sensitive to the laser. For this reason, our technicians can apply a topical anesthetic to help ease any discomfort you may experience.

After your treatment, the treated area will be covered with an antibiotic cream and soothed by an ice pack. While there is no downtime, you will need to protect your skin from sun exposure and follow a strict skincare routine for optimal healing results.

  • Safe for all skin types
