Laser Tattoo Removal

  • The laser’s high energy light is used to break up the tattoo ink into tiny particles, which are gradually absorbed by the skin
  • The number of sessions needed for laser tattoo removal treatment is primarily determined by the color of the tattoo. Turquoise tattoos are some of the most difficult to eliminate because there isn’t a laser that targets the color effectively.  In most cases, laser tattoo removal takes between six and twelve treatments and can be spread over several months or a few years.

Scar Management

  • Thickened, colored, or restrictive scars can sometimes be improved
  • Treatment options include:
    • Excision of scar
    • Injections of scar with steroids
    • Rearrangement of scar (Z-Plasty)
    • Use of silicone sheets or creams
