Got Some Bad Ink? We Can Help You.
LASER TATTOO REMOVAL
Although permanence is one of the defining characteristics of any tattoo, as your aesthetic preferences and circumstances evolve, you may find that you are no longer satisfied with the selection or placement of your body art. It is estimated that of the 45 million Americans who have at least one tattoo, approximately half of these individuals regret their decision. Some individuals attempt to cover their original tattoo with a new image, but even the most skillfully applied ‘cover-up’ techniques are not appropriate for all tattoos, and a cover-up is not an effective option for patients seeking complete tattoo removal.
PROGRESS IN TATTOO REMOVAL TECHNIQUES
There are a number of significant flaws associated with older tattoo removal methods:
- Very painful sessions
- Produced inconsistent results
- Not suitable for all skin types and skin colors
- Ineffective at removing color tattoos
- Often resulted in permanent damage to the patient’s skin
Fortunately, modern tattoo removal technology has progressed dramatically over the past five years, and now employs the power of advanced laser systems to safely and comfortably ‘de-ink’ patients who are dissatisfied with their current body art. These next-generation integrative laser technologies function by searching for contrasting pigmentation between the tattoo ink and your natural skin tone, before directing powerful pulsating heat energy at the skin to shatter the ink into microscopic particles small enough for your lymphatic system to safely and easily absorb.
The advantages of these improved tattoo removal modalities can only be optimized when administered by expert laser technicians with the necessary training and certification in tattoo removal, such as the skillful medical team at Modern Body Contouring and Laser Center (MBody), with convenient office locations in Richmond, VA and Vienna, VA. In the care of esteemed, board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Reps Sundin and Dr. Burton Sundin, you will receive a personalized tattoo removal treatment plan that incorporates state-of-the-art laser technology to safely and comfortably remove your tattoo as quickly and efficiently as possible. You can feel comfortable knowing that MBody’s cutting edge laser tattoo removal equipment is unlikely to produce any post-treatment skin irritation and is appropriate for use on all skin types and ethnicities.
YOUR MBODY TATTOO REMOVAL EXPERIENCE
During your initial tattoo removal consultation, we will perform a confidential medical assessment to screen for potential immune system or skin problems, and will then evaluate the quality, age, size, placement, color, and density of your tattoo(s) before providing an accurate estimate of the cost and approximate number of sessions you will require for total tattoo removal.
It is important to be patient and to manage your treatment expectations during the tattoo removal process, as the complete removal of your tattoo(s) will likely entail 4-12 sessions (5-20 minutes each) spaced approximately 8 weeks apart. Even the most advanced tattoo removal techniques may not be 100% effective for every patient. In general, older tattoos, large tattoos, multi-colored tattoos, and professional tattoos typically require more sessions to obtain optimal results, and fair-skinned patients tend to require fewer tattoo removal sessions than patients with darker skin.
Ensuring your comfort throughout your tattoo removal experience is the number one concern of every MBody staff member. To this end, we may administer ice, topical numbing creams, and/or injectable local anesthetics prior to your laser tattoo removal session to ameliorate any tenderness or discomfort.
