Tattoo Removal

Laser used – AlexTriVantage™

What it treats – all pigment colors, including those other lasers failed to remove.

How it works – This laser selectively targets the multiple colors which make up tattoos by incorporating three different wavelengths of light into one laser, hence the "tri" part of the laser's name. This laser breaks up the tattoo pigment into small particles which the body can absorb.

Why it's better – This laser offers an improvement over earlier lasers in that the beam's energy is delivered in a more uniform way which avoids creating hot spots which can damage the skin. The laser's longer pulse is gentler on the skin than earlier lasers and it can be safely used on darker skin tones.

How it will feel – This laser causes less skin pain than earlier lasers, but an anesthetic is still advisable. The laser beam feels like static electricity.

Recovery time – Skin can be red and swollen for up to two weeks. If dots of bleeding occur, apply ointment and dressing.

Precautions after treatment – Care should be taken in the first few days following treatment to avoid scrubbing the area, and abrasive skin cleansers should be avoided. A bandage or patch may help to prevent abrasion of the treated area. After and between treatments, it's recommended that patients cover the area with a sunscreen. Dr. Overman recommends the Obagi sunscreens.

Procedure results – After each treatment, particles of tattoo ink are cleared away by the body over 6 to 8 weeks. Amateur tattoos respond the fastest. Black and blue inks fade the best.

Procedure time – About 8 to 10 treatments, 6 to 8 weeks apart. The number and length of treatment sessions needed to remove a tattoo depends on several factors, such as the concentration of ink used, the depth of the ink, the tattoo's size, how long the tattoo has been there and whether it was done by professional or an amateur.
