How does Tattoo Removal work?

Do you have a tattoo that you’d like to get rid of? A tattoo is designed to be permanent, but no one should have to live with regret! At the Tallahassee Plastic Surgery Clinic, we use cutting edge laser tattoo removal to undo the tattoo and reveal the skin below.

With the new Enlighten laser by Cutera, we can remove tattoos and other skin imperfections like benign pigmented lesions/brown spots.

How long will it take?

Brown spots can be often removed in one treatment; however, some patients may need 2-3 treatments. Tattoo removal depends on several factors, but usually we can remove tattoos faster and with less treatment than other laser systems because of the advanced nano and pico second technology. Four treatments are a goal but some patients need more or less treatments, depending on their tattoo specifics.

Brown Spot Removal

From scar tissue to discoloration, minor blemishes can be an issue. Traditional skin care treatments can be effective, but they might not be enough. Using pulsating light beams that can improve skin tone and texture, the specialists at the Tallahassee Plastic Surgery Clinic can treat skin imperfections and benign pigmented lesions/brown spots.
