Tattoo regret is a common occurrence for many men and women of all ages. A decade ago, the only options were to live with the mistake or try to cover it up with another tattoo. These days, technology has significantly evolved. You can now fade and often completely erase unwanted tattoos with a minimally-invasive, in-office treatment.
At Accent Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, we use the most top-of-the-line laser technology available. The AlexTrivantage laser system offers optimal energy delivery while minimizing any damage to the skin. This allows us to safely and effectively remove nearly any tattoo regardless of shape, size, or color.
What Tattoos Respond Best to Treatment?
The AlexTriVantage targets pigment within the tattoo. It is one of the few laser tattoo removal systems that can treat color tattoos. Tattoos that are older can be removed much more quickly than newer tattoos. AlexTriVantage has various wavelengths that can be customized to a patient’s individual needs and goals.
What Skin Colors & Types Can Be Treated?
AlexTriVantage can safely be used to remove tattoos on almost any skin type. While darker tattoos on lighter skin tones often fade the fastest, our unique laser system can be adjusted for nearly anyone.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments you will need will depend on the size, location, age, and color of your tattoo. Most patients need a series of tattoo removal sessions to achieve their desired results. Tattoos significantly fade with each consecutive treatment. Laser tattoo removal sessions are spaced 6-8 weeks apart.
Treatments are generally quick, easy, and low-pain. In most cases, you can expect to be in and out of your appointment within the hour. Afterward, you will be able to return to most day-to-day activities immediately with minimal restrictions.
When Will I See Results?
Results can often be seen after just one appointment. Once AlexTriVantage breaks down the pigmentation within your tattoo, pigmented lesions will begin to naturally be reabsorbed into the body and flushed from your system. Most patients see results in 2-4 weeks as pigmented cells are metabolized.
Is Laser Tattoo Removal Right for Me?
You are likely a good candidate for laser tattoo removal if you are unhappy with the look of an existing tattoo. Thanks to the latest advancements in tattoo removal technology, the process is generally considered safe and effective for any tattoo on any skin color or type.
The best way to find out if the procedure is right for you is to schedule an in-person consultation with one of our tattoo removal specialists. We will assess your concerns and speak to you about your goals before tailoring a treatment plan to help make your unwanted tattoo a thing of the past.
