Tattoo designs are always evolving. What may have been a trendy tattoo when you were younger may seem like a mistake today. Fortunately, new technology allows you to get rid of these mistakes.
Laser tattoo removal in Houston gives you the chance to erase the permanent ink that no longer fits your style or identity. Whether you want to create space for new tattoos or get rid of old ones, our medical team in Houston—led by local plastic surgeon Dr. Oren Paul Mushin—can help you accomplish your goals with this non-surgical procedure.
What Does Laser Tattoo Removal Accomplish?
Getting a tattoo is often painful. A tattoo artist injects the ink in a repetitive motion beneath your dermis to create a permanent design of your choice. Over time, the ink may fade, but the image is long-lasting.
When you want to remove the ink that once had deep meaning, our tattoo removal procedure could be the best option for you. Using advanced laser technology, our highly trained medical team in Houston penetrates the deepest layer of your skin to remove the permanent ink.
How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?
In a time when many people use tattoos as a form of self-expression, it is important to have ones that match your identity. Here in Houston, we start the tattoo removal process with a consultation. We help you achieve your laser removal goals by addressing your concerns during your consultation.
The laser operates on selective photothermolysis, breaking down the ink particles deep within your skin while protecting your surrounding skin from the laser treatment itself. Dr. Mushin and our expert team will decide how many sessions you require to eliminate your tattoo completely.
Customized Tattoo Removal
Each tattoo has a specific amount of ink, which is why we tailor our laser tattoo removal process to your needs. Many components are involved in removing your tattoo. Factors we consider during your consultation include the following:
- The age of the tattoo
- If any colored ink was used
- Size of the tattoo
- Location of the tattoo on your body
Determining these factors allows us to create a plan catered to your needs. For example, colored tattoos may require more sessions than those with black ink. The size may also determine how many sessions you require. Dr. Mushin and our medical staff in Houston can help create a suitable plan for you.
What to Expect During and After Tattoo Removal
Tattoo removal procedures give you a fresh start using a non-invasive method. Our team of surgical experts provides you with a topical anesthetic before your treatment to ensure you are comfortable. While the duration of each session depends on the size of your tattoo, we try our best to make the procedure quick and painless.
Although you may notice slight fading of your tattoo after your first session, you will likely have to schedule several sessions to see total removal. Gradually removing the tattoo protects the skin surrounding the ink, providing you with the optimal results.
