Plastic Surgeons Serving Edison, Marlboro, Warren, And Montclair, New Jersey
Laser tattoo removal is a very common procedure at Associates in Plastic Surgery. We use a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser, which is specifically designed for tattoos.There are different laser heads to address the different colors.
The great thing about the tattoo laser is that it should result in minimal to no scarring, whereas the old dermabrasion techniques left significant scarring.
On average, 6 sessions are needed for laser tattoo removal. Colors like green and yellow are more difficult to remove than dark blue and red. After each treatment, a period of 3-4 weeks is needed for healing before the next session. While no one can give a guarantee of removal, most of our patients are happy because the tattoo is either removed or close to being removed.
