What is the best way for CA area residents to remove a tattoo?

In the past, tattoos were forever. The ink was administered into the skin and was there for good. However, thanks to continued advances in dermatology, there is one great way to remove a tattoo: laser tattoo removal.

Laser tattoo removal is the best, most effective way of addressing unwanted tattoos on the body. Dr. Christine Lee of The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute in CA is proud to offer this cosmetic treatment for new and existing patients. Both men and women can target specific tattoos on their body which may be poorly placed, unattractive, or may have a lingering connection that patients no longer want to be reminded of. When patients come to visit the team of the East Bay Laser and Skin Care Center, Inc. to consult regarding tattoo removal, they will be introduced to the laser therapies used to achieve results.

Laser tattoo removal is safe, effective, and affordable. Patients will learn about the procedure during their initial consultation appointment and examination during which Dr. Christine Lee will be able to discuss the process. Patients are advised that just one laser treatment will not provide effective results, but rather a series of treatments are more desirable. Many patients will benefit from anywhere between 4-6 treatment sessions to start, and then add on more if necessary. After each treatment, the tattoo will fade. This is because the laser light breaks up the ink and allows the skin to naturally process it. The number of treatments will be determined on several factors including the amount of time the tattoo has been in place, the quality of the inks used, the colors, and the size of the tattoo. Patients will notice throughout their sessions that the ink will begin to fade and be much less noticeable on the skin.
