What is Laser Tattoo Removal?

Aesthetics Performed

Laser Tattoo Removal is a non-ablative treatment that uses a high-intensity beam to break up pigment colors. Black ink responds best to the treatment, however, different colored inks can also be removed by different lasers based on the pigment color. Common reasons for tattoo removal include:

  • Changes in personal taste
  • Employment
  • Military
  • Misspellings or mistakes
  • Breakups

At both of our locations, we utilize the Q-Switched Nd: Yag Laser, which works by targeting specific pigments in the skin and focuses on damaged skin cells in the treated area. When it comes to laser tattoo removal, this laser targets ink pigment and breaks it up into smaller particles through powerful bursts of energy. The ink is then absorbed into the bloodstream and eventually expelled from the body.

The Q-Switched Nd: YAG laser utilizes two energy frequencies; 1064 nanometers, to target deeper skin layers, and 532 nanometers, to address hyperpigmentation and more superficial layers. The diversity of the laser allows us to treat over 30 different skin conditions, such as:

  • Acne
  • Age spots
  • Birthmarks
  • Broken facial capillaries
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Freckles
  • Leg veins
  • Rosacea
  • Scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Sunspots
  • Unwanted hair

Who are the Best Candidates for Laser Tattoo Removal?

We feel the best candidate for Laser Tattoo Removal is any patient who wishes to remove an unwanted tattoo. This treatment can also be appropriate for patients who have some of the following characteristics:

  • Did not experience success with other tattoo removal methods.
  • Are physically healthy
  • Maintain realistic expectations from the procedure

While Laser Tattoo Removal can be a great solution for anyone with tattoos they no longer want, it does work better for some people than others. The age, the pigment colors, and the depth of the tattoo pigment are all factors in whether laser tattoo removal is a good choice for you. Laser tattoo removal may also not be suitable for patients with certain skin conditions and those who are prone to forming keloids.

What’s the first step?

The first step in getting a Laser Tattoo Removal treatment at either of our Bucks County locations is to contact Pure by Alpha Dermatology for a consultation. You will meet with a technician who will examine your tattooed area and your skin. During this appointment, you will discuss your goals for the procedure and discuss your medical history, so it’s very important to be clear and open with your technician to avoid any unnecessary risks.

Your specialist will create your treatment plan, and if you agree with it, our Patient Coordinator will help you schedule your first session and

What to Expect on the Day of Laser Tattoo Removal

When you visit one of our locations for your Q-Switched Nd: YAG laser treatment, your provider will first numb the area with a topical cream or may use a local anesthetic to further reduce discomfort, and you will be provided with protective eyewear. Next, they will guide the laser across the treatment area which delivers powerful bursts of energy to break down the pigment. Some patients may experience some discomfort during this stage because the laser will cause micro-damage to the skin. Most of our patients handle this procedure very well because our technicians have been trained to work diligently to ensure maximum comfort.

Laser Tattoo Removal Recovery

After your treatment, there’s nothing to prevent you from continuing your daily activities. You can expect your skin to be slightly red and potentially swollen for the next day or so, but please keep in mind the redness can linger for up to three to five days. We encourage you to use a good moisturizer and sunscreen following your treatment for the best possible results.

Awesome office staff and Carly, Drew and Dr Shrager are phenomenal! Highly recommend. My appointment this time was with Carly and I couldn’t be happier. Very professional, knowledgeable and you can tell she really knows what she’s doing. Alpha Derm is the best!

The results were amazing. I strongly believe that a good filler job means you can’t spot a filler job and she nailed it. I look like me, but more refreshed and younger!
