Undo Your Tattoo Laser Tattoo Removal

Jun 7th, 2013 In: Tattoo Removal

James: I am getting remarried this summer. I need to have the tattoo of my ex-wife's name removed from my arm. Do you have a laser that can remove the tattoo?

Julia: Dr White, I made a terrible mistake and got a tattoo on a dare last week. Now I don't like it and regret getting it. What can I do?

Dr. White: James and Julia, you are not alone. Tattoos are very popular these days, but sometimes your life situation changes, your tattoo doesn't turn out the way you envisioned it, your taste changes, or the tattoo fades and you want to UNDO YOUR TATTOO. I certainly understand why you want to be rid of your tattoo.

Laser Tattoo Removal

Luckily, at Carolina Laser, we own a laser that vaporizes part of the tattoo ink and breaks the rest of the ink into teeny tiny little particles that the body's immune system can clear. The best available laser is the REVLITE laser. It can remove all colors of ink and in fewer sessions than older model lasers. Carolina Laser is one of the few Cosmetic Surgery practices in the southeast to offer tattoo removal with the REVLITE laser.

It will likely take multiple sessions to remove your tattoo, depending upon the age of your tattoo, the density of the ink application, and the colors used. We can give you an estimate of the number of sessions you will likely need at the time of your first office visit. Learn more about laser tattoo removal.
