Find out how our amazing laser treatment could finally remove that embarrassing tattoo.
When you turned 18 you knew no one was going to stop you from getting a tattoo. Of course, now that you’ve gotten older you may feel as if this tattoo no longer represents who you are. Dr. Curt Birchall of The Fountain Clinic in Cleveland, OH understands that many people change their minds when it comes to tattoos, but contrary to what you might think, you don’t have just to live with your embarrassing tattoo forever.
Many people choose to get laser tattoo removal because it is the only method that is able to actually remove your tattoo without causing scarring. This is a major advantage for anyone who wants to get rid of a tattoo but hates the idea of having an unsightly scar left in its wake. Through the use of ultra-short pulses of light, this non-invasive laser is able to break up tattoo ink easily and effectively.
During Astanza laser tattoo removal treatment our Cleveland, OH area cosmetic doctor will place the laser directly over the tattoo. The ink from the tattoo then absorbs the light from the laser, which means that the surrounding skin will remain unaffected. As the ink takes in the light energy it will heat up and destroy ink particles.
The magic lies in what happens after your laser treatment. In the days and even weeks after your treatment, the body will naturally flush out the ink, which will cause the tattoo to gradually fade. Of course, most patients will require several treatments in order to continue to remove more and more ink particles from their skin. Our Astanza laser system uses Q-switches lasers, which makes it easier to remove both dark and bright tattoos without scarring.
