Laser Tattoo Removal in Miami, FL

Do you wish you could safely remove the tattoo that you decided to get and now you regret having? Fotona StarWalker PQX tattoo removal treatments may be your answer. StarWalker is the industry leader with its next-generation tattoo-removing laser system that works on four colors with the highest level of energy. This technology produces very quick pulses of intense light that are targeted to be absorbed by the tattooed pigments. The pigments are broken down by the light and then removed by your own immune system. Most tattoo treatments require only a few minutes per session, but each treatment must be followed by three weeks with no therapy to allow the body time to eliminate the pigments. In addition to its effectiveness, the technology produces a consistent laser beam that results in a high level of safety and a minimum level of skin damage or adverse side effects.

Tattoos no longer have to be permanent. Our intense, fast-pulse Pico laser can remove or significantly lighten a tattoo by training pulsing light on the tattoo's ink particles, which convert the energy to heat and break up into tiny pieces that are absorbed harmlessly by the body, without any damage to surrounding tissue. Ideal candidates for laser tattoo removal are typically fair-skinned, and have tattoos that are on areas, such as the arms, legs, buttocks or chest, that have a greater concentration of body fat. Prior to laser, techniques for removing tattoos included dermabrasion, cryosurgery and surgical excision.

The Laser Tattoo Removal Procedure

A few hours before the laser tattoo removal procedure begins, it is recommended that acetaminophen be taken to help minimize discomfort. Just before the procedure begins, the patient is given a shield to protect his or her eyes from the laser. Using our different and unique approach local injected anesthetic to the skin and a cooling system before, during and after the procedure, discomfort is minimize. The tattoo removal experienced professionals then tests the skin's response to the laser to determine the most effective approach, and intense picosecond pulses are sent from the pico laser to the skin.

Each laser tattoo removal session lasts only a few minutes and, at the end of each session, the tattoo is iced for about 30 minutes. A topical antibiotic and a bandage are then applied. Patients are advised to keep the skin around the tattooed area dry, and to treat it as if it were sunburned.
