Erase Regrets

What are the benefits of Laser Tattoo Removal?

The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery has deemed the preferred laser tattoo removal treatment as an advanced technology that easily removes stubborn colors and minimizes scars and lingering soreness.

Professional tattoos embed ink particles deep within the skin layers, making them seemingly permanent as they are too large for the immune system to remove. Although tattoos may fade slightly over time, most are there to stay. However, for those with regrettable tattoos seeking a fresh start, laser technology offers a solution. Tattoo removal lasers emit high-intensity energy, penetrating the epidermis to break up the tattoo ink into smaller particles. As your body's natural excretion process takes effect, it gradually flushes out the shattered ink particles, allowing you to bid farewell to unwanted tattoos. Embrace the possibility of a clean slate with laser tattoo removal, a reliable method to erase or conceal those tattoos you wish to leave behind.

Your safety and well-being are our priority, and our team will carefully assess your individual circumstances to ensure the most effective and safe approach to achieving your desired tattoo removal results.

Tattoo Removal The Professional Way

Your Laser Tattoo Removal Consultation

“Traditional” methods of tattoo removal have been associated with damage to the surrounding skin. With Dr. Bengelsdorf’s quality, advanced lasers tailored to your needs.

Many clients experience only a little more than the sensation of a rubber band being snapped against the skin as the laser light is directed precisely to the treatment area. We recommend leaving the area alone after the treatment until the next day as you will leave with it bandaged and protected. You will leave the appointment with specific take home instructions and a healing ointment to apply over the next couple days. We do not recommend icing the area.

The Power of Light

Your Laser Tattoo Removal Procedure

The laser tattoo removal process is a gradual process that takes a series of treatments. Generally, black ink is quicker to remove than pastels or bold colors. Each color absorbs a given wavelength differently. The volume and quality of ink used by your tattoo artist also matter, as does the tattoo’s age and depth. The doctor and his staff will consider these factors when estimating the number of sessions to fade or eliminate unwanted body art. We don't do any of these. What we offer is the Zimmer chiller, less treatment waiting time, less of a chance of a reaction. If we do numbing, it is injectable but the patient doesn't get a choice. To safeguard your eyes from the laser beam, protective eyewear will be provided.

The laser device will be skillfully maneuvered over your skin, pulsing over the tattoo in small sections. With each pulse, you may experience a quick zap of warmth or a sensation similar to a rubber band snap. The duration of the process depends on the size of your tattoo, ranging from a few minutes to an hour or more. Rest assured that throughout the procedure, our team at Franklin Skin & Laser will ensure your comfort and safety, guiding you toward the optimal results you desire for your tattoo removal journey.

From Ink to Unblemished Skin

Laser Tattoo Removal Results

Tattoo removal is a journey that requires patience and commitment, as it is not an instant fix. Typically, most people undergo between six to 12+ tattoo removal sessions, although this can vary depending on individual factors.

Each session is scheduled eight to ten weeks apart to allow your skin adequate time to heal and recover. To optimize your tattoo removal results, it is essential to take care of your overall health. Avoiding nicotine use, staying well-hydrated by drinking plenty of water, and consuming nutritious foods are vital steps to strengthen your immune system. You can also exfoliate in between sessions as long as the treatment area isn't compromised. A robust immune system contributes to faster clearance of the tattoo from your skin, promoting more effective results throughout your tattoo removal journey. At Franklin Skin & Laser, we are committed to supporting you every step of the way, ensuring you achieve the best possible outcomes for your tattoo removal process.

Laser Tattoo Removal Recovery and Aftercare

After the laser treatment, you may notice your tattoo appearing frosted initially, which should return to its normal appearance within a few minutes.

Expect Some Redness Or Tenderness

Swelling, Dryness, And Flaking During The First Week

Bruising, blistering and pinpoint bleeding is also considered normal at higher treatment settings. It is essential not to pick at any peeling or crusting that may occur; instead, allow your body to naturally heal. To ensure optimal healing, avoid sun exposure during the recovery period. Our team at Franklin Skin & Laser is dedicated to your post-treatment care, guiding you through the recovery process to ensure a smooth and successful tattoo removal journey.

Laser Tattoo Removal Frequently Asked Questions

Can you remove tattoos made with black ink?

Black tattoo ink is often not pure black, as it can contain iron oxide or carbon compounds and be mixed with various colors. For instance, black ink that turns orange contains iron oxide, while ink that turns blue is typically a carbon compound. Iron oxide-based inks are generally easier to remove and require shorter intervals between treatment sessions. With advanced laser technology, all tattoo colors, including blacks, can be completely removed, providing effective and comprehensive tattoo removal solutions.

Is tattoo removal painful?

Pain levels during tattoo removal can vary depending on individual tolerance and the size and location of the tattoo. However, at Franklin Skin & Laser, we prioritize your comfort and utilize various pain management options to minimize any discomfort during the procedure. Our experienced professionals aim to provide a positive and fast tattoo removal experience, ensuring you feel at ease throughout the process.

Why are some tattoos harder to remove than others?

Tattoo removal success depends on various factors, such as the tattoo's age, ink depth in the skin, the client's skin type, tattoo location on the body, medical history, interval between removal treatments, practitioner's experience, and the tattoo ink colors used. These variables contribute to the complexity of the removal process, making some tattoos more challenging to erase than others.
