after tatoo removal

There’s something so attractive about the idea of a fresh new year, a new set of chances to make changes and start with a clean slate. New Year’s resolutions are all about getting caught up in the spirit of renewal and setting intentions to make changes, even if it feels like time travel to go back to the time before a tattoo you regret.

Fortunately, you don’t have to dedicate yourself to inventing and perfecting a time machine this year to get rid of that unwanted tattoo. With recent advances in the technology, laser tattoo removal is a safe and effective way to give your skin a bit of a hard-reset.

How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

The first questions people tend to have when they’re considering tattoo removal are how it works and if the process is painful. The truth is that discomfort is minimal, with some people experiencing slight tenderness in the area that has been treated, but this should subside within two to three days.

As for how the laser tattoo removal process works, it’s easy. With the help of a high-intensity light capable of moving through your skin without damage, tattoo ink particles are disturbed to the point of shattering. The pigment fragments are cleared from your skin and your body by its lymphoid system. With enough treatments, the tattoo is gone, almost like it never existed. Scarring is rare and usually minimal, no time machine required.

Is Laser Tattoo Removal Right for Me?

There are as many reasons to want a tattoo removed as there are reasons for getting a tattoo, and all of them are valid. Maybe you don’t want to walk around with your ex’s name on your body, or maybe the tattoo artist did poor work. Even if you just no longer enjoy a tattoo that once fit your style and personality, you’re not stuck with it forever. Contact us today at Kayal Dermatology & Skin Cancer Specialists today to learn more about how the process works, and to schedule a consultation so you can explore all your options for tattoo removal.

First time ever at a dermatology office! So I was a little nervous... But they have a very friendly staff and it was nice meeting PA Joel! Felt comfortable and he was informative & made me feel like I wasn’t the only person dealing with my issue. I can’t wait to see some results and get some relief!!

Eve L.

Love this place! Everyone is so caring, and very helpful in each way possible. Highly recommend this place for skin care and even skin cancer!

Detlef K.

I’ve been going here awhile. I’ve got a few pesky issues, some due to my not allowing areas to completely heal, sins that prolongs my already glacier like speed healing! I really appreciate Dr. Kayal and Joel who combine to take of me and my family.

Michael V.

Was greeted upon my arrival, very nice waiting room, was taken back immediately. Very professional, caring and friendly staff. They want to help you. The PA Joel was very knowledgeable and knew exactly how to help me. I was given a prescription to address the problem. Will be back with other issues, keep up the good work.

Lisa W.

PA Brown is very attentive to my son's needs. I have not had any difficulty getting appointments when needed. I think this practice provides excellent service. I definitely recommend Kayal Dermatology for all of your skin needs.
