Laser Tattoo Removal in New York City
Tattoos are meant to be permanent, but they don't have to be. If you are tired of your tattoo, laser tattoo removal at our New York City practice may be the solution.
How the Procedure Is Performed
Our practice uses the Medlite laser, which is effective for removing tattoos. The light beam emitted from the laser targets the pigment in the tattoo. When the pigment in the tattoo absorbs laser light it is fragmented. The body is then able to clear the pigment from the body.
The laser treatment will sting during and after the procedure. Topical numbing medicine or pain medication may be taken to keep you comfortable. The average patient requires 4 to 6 treatments, each spaced about 4 to 8 weeks apart. p>
Depending on the size of the treatment area, the procedure should take less than 10 minutes.
