Tattoo Removal in Atlanta (Buckhead) and Valdosta, GA
Tattoos always seem like a great idea when we get them, but as our lifestyles change, so does our desire to have ink permanently embedded in our skin. Southern Vein & Laser Center offers laser tattoo removal to men and women in Atlanta (Buckhead), Valdosta and Alpharetta, as well as surrounding areas in Georgia.
Laser Tattoo Removal
Until recently, tattoos were permanent, which meant that you had an artistic creation inked on your body forever. As tattoos became more mainstream, more people learned the downside of having permanent tattoos and sought ways to remove the ink. Cover ups may work for some, but others simply want to erase the tattoo. Thanks to the revolutionary laser system PiQo4™ by Cartessa™, you can now have your unwanted tattoos safely removed with laser tattoo removal treatments from Southern Vein & Laser Center. Dr. Ambrozic is a member of the medical advisory board for Cartessa™ and personally attests to their safety and function.
Benefits of Laser Tattoo Removal
Laser tattoo removal effectively removes every color of pigment in the fewest number of treatments. Treatment of averagely sized tattoos takes less than 15 minutes. Depending on the nature of the tattoo, you may need repeat treatments every six to eight weeks until the tattoo pigments are completely eliminated.
PiQo4™ by Cartessa™ features four separate emission modes and three true laser wavelengths, making it a pleasant experience for the patient and a breakthrough laser treatment.
How Tattoo Removal Works
Laser tattoo removal works by directing a powerful laser light into the tattoo, allowing the laser to shatter the tattoo ink into microscopic pieces that are then safely eliminated from your body.
All tattoo ink colors can be effectively dissolved, however, because many complex tattoos are comprised of multiple layers of ink, the average tattoo requires four to six treatments for full removal.
What to Expect from Laser Tattoo Removal
Most patients report minimal discomfort during the laser tattoo removal treatment. Some say the sensation they experience is similar to that of having the tattoo done, while others report feeling no sensation at all. Any discomfort can be effectively managed using a topical cooling cream.
Some patients experience a temporary whitening of their skin where the tattoo was removed. This discoloration resolves once the natural pigmentation of the skin regenerates, a process that usually takes a few weeks.
How Much Does Laser Tattoo Removal Cost?
Because laser tattoo removal is not covered by medical insurance, we strive to make it as affordable as possible for our patients. During the consultation, we provide an estimated cost. This may vary as you go through treatment to have your tattoo removed. For your convenience, we accept payment by cash, checks and major credit cards. If you need a financing option, we invite you to apply with CareCredit®.
