Tattoo removal is done by using a laser to break up the pigment of the tattoo into smaller particles. The smaller pigment particles are then expelled from your body naturally. Treatment can vary depending on the size, condition, and color of the tattoo. Darker colored tattoos respond best. Typically 5-15 sessions are required for complete removal, though some patients do have an early response.

Are there any side effects?
Your skin will appear slightly raw immediately after treatment. Redness will subside depending on treatment intensity. Patients must avoid all sun exposure to the treated area post treatment until the area is fully healed as well as 2 weeks before any treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
There are many factors that contribute to the amount of treatments needed, including the size, age, and location of the tattoo, the coloring, and your skin type. During your consultation, we recommend a general number of treatments, but the amount can change depending on your body’s reaction to the treatment.
How do you make the procedure more comfortable?
To make the procedure as comfortable as possible, we recommend numbing the area 2-3 hours prior to arrival with a prescription numbing cream we can prescribe.
Where are we located?
We have offices in King of Prussia and Exton Pennsylvania. Tattoo removal is only done in our Exton office at this time. We serve the greater Philadelphia area, but we draw patients from New York to Maryland to Harrisburg.
