Why are people turning to laser tattoo removal to reinvent their self-image?

A large percentage of people have tattoos, and many regret their decision and would like to have them removed. What may have been exciting and looked good when you were 18, may not be what you would have chosen 20 years later. As we move forward in years, our tastes and choices may begin to change. If you have a tattoo you would like to remove, there is good news for you. Laser tattoo removal in Baltimore can rid you of your undesired tattoo with virtually no downtime or side effects.


How does laser tattoo removal work?

The Quanta Q-Plus C laser tattoo removal system can remove all tattoos with little to no scarring. A high-intensity light is beamed into your tattoo, breaking up the pigment colors. Black tattoo ink is the easiest to treat, as it absorbs all laser wavelengths. Other colors can be treated using selected lasers, based on the different pigment colors.

The number of procedures you need depends on the size of your tattoo, and the colors used. The color of your skin, along with the depth of the tattoo will affect the removal technique. The Quanta Q-Plus C laser is capable of treating all skin tones and ALL colors of ink.

What should I expect from my treatment?

Laser tattoo removal in Columbia MD may be a little uncomfortable, but most patients do not need anesthesia. We offer a painless option for those patients who cannot tolerate the discomfort. Immediately following treatment, you may be instructed to use an ice pack to soothe the treated area. We recommend applying a post laser gel to cool and soothe the treatment area.

You need to keep in mind that laser treatments are safer than many other tattoo removal techniques such as excision or dermabrasion, and there are very few side effects. However, you need to follow your practitioner’s instructions carefully to achieve the best results.

  • Safe, effective and efficient

Tattoo Removal with PicoWay

Tattoo removal is fast, safe and easy with the FDA-cleared PicoWay laser system. Using a photoacoustic effect—where pulsed picosecond laser energy (that’s one-trillionth of a second) is transformed into sound rather than heat within the skin—the PicoWay painlessly shatters tattoo ink into fragments that are then easily flushed out of the body. The system reaches beneath the surface of the skin to target those layers of skin where the tattoo ink is embedded, and shatters it. PicoWay additionally stimulates the growth of new collagen and elastin which further assist to diminish the appearance of the tattoo.

As with all laser tattoo removal options, the PicoWay may require a series of quick treatments (15 to 20 minutes each). What makes it an excellent patient choice is that it requires little to no downtime after treatments and does not risk causing potential damage to the surface layers of the skin through overheating.

Who is a good candidate for the procedure?

In general, good candidates for laser tattoo removal in Baltimore are of sound mind and body, with healthy, thriving immune systems. They should be non-smokers, as smoking may inhibit the body’s ability to clear away the ink once it has been broken down by the lasers. Additionally, clients seeking laser tattoo removal should be well informed about what they can expect from their results. Our team will ensure you have realistic expectations during your confidential consultation.

  • What can I expect in terms of recovery and downtime?

  • How much does it cost?

    Treatments start as low as $99 per session. Pricing depends on the size of your tattoo and Consultations are required to provide the most accurate pricing. Please visit our Contact page to set up your Consultation.

  • Why should I choose Comprehensive Laser for tattoo removal?

    Most people spend a great deal of time choosing an artist for their tattoos. However, others don’t, and they end up getting a hideous tattoo that will be a long-lasting reminder of that mistake.

    Tattoo removal is an art and a science. Several factors such as ink density, skin type, and ink color need to be considered when attempting tattoo removal. Sadly, most practices do not have properly trained and certified staff who understand the intricacies of this process.

    At Comprehensive Laser, our primary goal with tattoo removal is ensuring that it is performed safely and with zero scarring. Our physician assistant Neil Harry is the only Certified Laser Tattoo Removal Specialist in practice in Howard County. He is also our Laser Safety Officer and has completed his training in Denver, Colorado at the A Laser Academy with Victor Beyer – who many consider to the be Godfather of laser tattoo removal.

    You already regret the tattoo. Don’t make another mistake and have an unqualified provider cause you further pain and suffering. We are also the only practice in Howard County, Maryland that specializes in and performs Laser tattoo removal treatments.

What We're Doing About COVID-19

At Comprehensive Laser, your health, safety and happiness are our top priorities. We have been monitoring the evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation very carefully. We will be partially reopening the office beginning Monday, May 11th. We will continue to follow updates from local, state and federal authorities and if we receive different guidance we will respond appropriately and notify you immediately.

We have taken a series of precautionary steps to ensure your safety:

  1. We are performing enhanced cleaning and sanitizing of all patient care areas on a regular basis and in between all patient visits.
  2. We will avoid having patients congregate in our reception area. Upon check-in, you will be shown to either a private exam room or consultation room depending upon the nature of your appointment.
  3. All members of our staff are screened daily for COVID symptoms and are asked to stay home if they exhibit any signs or symptoms of the disease.
  4. We screen all patients entering our facility with COVID symptom screening questionnaires.
  5. ALL of our providers wear surgical face masks, plastic face shields and the necessary personal protective equipment to ensure patient and provider safety.
  6. We use hospital-grade disinfectants (Cavi-Wipes, Cavicide) to clean patient rooms and equipment. CaviCide is a convenient, ready-to-use, intermediate-level surface disinfectant that is effective against TB, HBV, HCV, viruses (hydrophilic and lipophilic), bacteria (including MRSA and VRE) and fungi. It can be used in the NICU, operating rooms, isolation rooms, patient care areas and laboratories. When used as directed, it will also effectively clean and decontaminate critical and semi-critical instrumentation.
  7. All of our equipment and protective eyewear are cleaned after every use.
  8. Plexiglass shields will be in place at the check-in and check out areas to prevent aerosol transmission.
  9. We offer "No touch" payment methods such as Apple Pay, Google Pay and online invoicing.

For the time being, we ask that you come to your appointments alone to limit the traffic through the office. We also ask that you leave children in the care of a family member or a sitter. If you have had a recent fever, sore throat, cold- or flu-like symptoms or contact with someone suspected of having COVID-19 please call immediately to reschedule your appointment.

As always we appreciate your support of and trust in our practice and we look forward to seeing you soon!
