At Seriously Skin Cosmetic and Laser Medicine, patients in and around the area of Chagrin Falls, OH who are unhappy with tattoos on their skin may feel as though they have no other choice but to live with these images. Instead, patients are educated on the benefits of professional treatment with Pico technology to achieve laser tattoo removal.
Understanding laser tattoo removal
Laser tattoo removal is a process during which a professional will use laser light to break down the pigmentation in a tattoo. By doing this, the tattoo slowly fades away until it is indistinguishable on the skin. This is achieved during several visits to the practice, with each treatment lessening the appearance. The pigmentation is absorbed into the body and released through the lymphatic system. Patients can either have a new tattoo placed over the area or can enjoy their clear skin for life!

What to expect from laser tattoo removal
When patients are considering treatments such as laser tattoo removal, they need to have a full understanding of the process so there are no surprises. Patients who arrive for a consultation appointment with our team will be educated on the process and what it entails. Patients who are interested in removing a tattoo will be advised that several sessions are required to achieve removal. The number of sessions will depend on a variety of factors, including the size of the tattoo, the colors used in the tattoo, how long the tattoo has been in the skin, and the quality of the tattoo ink. All these factors can affect how the treatment works, so consulting with our team prior to starting sessions is important. Patients come into the office on a regular basis for their laser tattoo removal treatments, during which the Pico Sure laser device is used on the tattoo to break down the pigments in the inks. A few weeks later, patients return, and the process continues until the tattoo has disappeared from the skin. Some patients just want the tattoo faded so they can place a new tattoo over the top without having to worry about matching the pigmentation of the old tattoo underneath. These patients will not need as many treatments as they are not seeking full removal.
What if my tattoo is on my face?
The Pico Sure treatment for laser tattoo removal can be performed on any skin type, color, or area of the skin because of its ability to be customized for the treatment area. Tattoos on the face can also be treated in the same manner as tattoos elsewhere on the body.
