What is Laser Tattoo Removal?
You may have a number of reasons why you no longer want a tattoo. Perhaps it forces you to recall a painful memory, or maybe it has simply lost meaning and doesn't represent who you are anymore. Whatever the reason, advances in laser tattoo removal treatments have made it possible to lighten and maybe even remove the unwanted tattoo in its entirety. At BioWell Therapeutics in Huntsville, AL, skilled physician Dr. Daniel Skinner provides tattoo removal using the next-generation Alma Harmony XL PRO system. This laser energy device is known to produce better results than traditional tattoo removal systems and could require fewer treatments.
Our Laser Tattoo Removal Technique
Once Dr. Skinner determines that your skin is ideal for tattoo removal, the treatment area will be prepped with a deep cleansing and an application of numbing cream. Dr. Skinner will then pass the applicator over the tattooed skin as it emits laser light and pulsing energy. The treatment time varies and depends on the type and size of the treatment area. Sometimes, the tattoo may require multiple sessions before noticeable results can be seen. This will all be discussed with you at your consultation.
