What is Tattoo Removal?
Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery helps you eliminate unwanted ink with laser treatment for tattoo removal. In most cases, RevLite® SI laser can be targeted to extremely specific areas to remove old and unwanted tattoos as quickly as possible and with less pain.
Benefits of Tattoo Removal
Using a laser, Dr. Schimpf targets the pigment of your tattoo, breaking it up into small particles. The particles become smaller and smaller with each treatment session, eventually becoming so small that the body’s immune system can dispose of them. When performed by a qualified provider, such as Dr. Schimpf, there will be no scarring.
Candidates for Tattoo Removal
The choice to remove a tattoo is as much of a personal decision as it is to get one. When making your decision about whether to remove an unwanted tattoo, consider the following questions:
- Does your tattoo embarrass you?
- Does it remind you of a painful experience, relationship or time in your life?
- Does it no longer reflect your lifestyle?
- Does it limit your wardrobe choices because you want to keep it hidden?
- Have you tried other methods of removing your tattoo?
- Has your tattoo changed in appearance due to age or sagging skin?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, are in good health and have realistic expectations, you are likely a good candidate for laser tattoo removal.
Procedure for Tattoo Removal
The number of treatments you will need will depend on the colors of the ink, the density and the size of your tattoo. Since our laser system is the most advanced laser available for tattoo removal, this means you will require fewer sessions than with other types of lasers. You may feel a slight stinging sensation, but we take measures to ensure the process is as painless as possible by applying a numbing cream and keeping sessions short. Following each laser session, you may feel like you have sunburn on your treated area.
Cost for Tattoo Removal
Dr. Schimpf will examine your tattoo during your consultation and then provide you with the estimated number of sessions you will need. He will also discuss your expectations and goals. The cost of your treatment plan will be determined after Dr. Schimpf has had a chance to examine your tattoo, and pricing will depend on the tattoo’s size and the number of sessions you’ll need to remove it. We accept all payment forms and offer convenient financing.
