Tattoo Laser Removal

Medical Spa in Davie, FL

Almost everyone comes to a point where they have a tattoo that no longer makes much sense. If you have a tattoo that you no longer need, tattoo laser removal can be the most effective, efficient, and safe way to get rid of it. We, at Aestheta, provide a wide range of aesthetic treatment services in the Miami, Boca Raton, and Winter Haven, FL areas. Dr. Sergei Margulian, MD has over 20 years of experience in various techniques and technologies in Aesthetic Medicine.

How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

A typical laser beam removal technique involves the use of laser beams to create concentrated bursts of energy. The ink beneath the skin is heated up, thus causing the ink to break up into smaller particles. Since tattoos can be made of different colors, the removal process requires the use of different laser beams at different frequencies. These tiny ink particles are then removed by your body’s immune system.

Tattoo Removal Using MediYag

MediYag is a specialized laser tattoo removal system and we specialize in its application. This is a top-grade Q-Switched laser system. The way it works also makes it ideal as an intensive-energy solution for not just tattoo removal, but also pigmentation and colorization problems. This versatile system can be adjusted to different wavelengths to target different colors of pigments.

We regularly use it to address the following challenges faced by our patients:

  • Unwanted Tattoos
  • Sunspots
  • Pigmented Lesions
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Birthmarks

The system can be adjusted to target the skin’s surface and at deeper levels. Besides, the size of the treatment spot can also be adjusted.

The Treatment Procedure

The settings and durations for tattoo laser removal vary between patients based on their age and type and size of the tattoo. We will also consider who applied the tattoo – whether it was a professional or amateur hand. The other important factors include your skin’s color and the depth of the tattoo pigment.

We would like you to know the following things about the removal process:

  • You will be wearing protective eye shields during the procedure
  • Margulian will test your skin’s reaction to the laser beam before determining the optimal energy for treatment
  • More pulses are applied to larger tattoos and fewer to smaller ones
  • Multiple sessions will be required for the completion of the tattoo laser removal process

After every visit, the tattoo will become progressively lighter.

Who is an Ideal Candidate?

At Aestheta, we will work with you to determine the right course of action for removing your tattoo. Traditionally, tattoos were removed using a wide range of techniques. However, many of those methods have been known to leave scars. In fact, it made more sense to continue wearing the tattoo than getting unsightly scars.

Whatever type of tattoo you may have, we have the experience, skills, and resources to help remove them. We understand that many of our patients have treated tattoos that don’t respond well to other methods. However, our tattoo laser removal technology takes care of all types of tattoos without leaving scars.
