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.

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.

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.
