Discover Tattoo Removal at Accent Plastic Surgery

Image-for-websiteTattoos often tell a personal story. Unfortunately, the only story your tattoo’s telling is one of regret.  Whether you decided to ink the name of a now ex-partner or you decided to proclaim your love for your favorite band back in 1995, you’re ready to leave that old story behind.

That means you’ll need an expert tattoo removal treatment that can help permanently erase the ink – and you’ll find it at Accent Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery in Tupelo, MS.

Laser Tattoo Removal at Accent

Owned and operated by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Craig, Accent Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery is the only place in Tupelo, MS that offers effective tattoo removal.  Dr. Craig and his team are committed to providing the most affordable and fastest tattoo removal procedures, which is why they’ve added a new laser tattoo removal procedure to their treatment menu.

Laser tattoo removal breaks up the ink molecules into smaller particles, which are then attacked by the immune system’s white blood cells.  Over time, the ink is absorbed by the body, which slowly fades away the tattoo’s appearance.

The time this process takes depends on the size and color of the tattoo; black-and-white tattoos will disappear faster, while color tattoos will take more treatments.  Superficial tattoos can usually be removed in two to four treatments, but most tattoos will take anywhere from eight to ten treatments to see ideal results.

Laser tattoo removal can be performed in-office without need for anesthesia.  Most patients only experience mild discomfort during the treatment, which has been compared to the slight snapping of a rubber band against the skin.  There’s little downtime associated with the treatment, with the exception of some mild blistering of the skin.
