Tattoo Removal Q & A

How does tattoo removal work?

Dr. Thakur removes unwanted tattoos through a variety of procedures. The most common tattoo removal techniques are surgery, laser treatments, or dermabrasion. The best approach depends on the type and placement of the tattoo you need to have removed.

Because tattoo removal is a complicated process involving the elimination of tattoo ink from under the top layer of skin, having the procedure done in a doctor’s office is the only safe way to remove unwanted tattoos. If you have any concerns about your tattoos, Dr. Thakur can help explain your options.

What types of tattoo removal are available?

Depending on the size, shape, and placement of the tattoo on your body, different treatments are available. Dr. Thakur discusses your goals and skin type to determine which tattoo removal treatment you should choose.

Surgery using a scalpel is the best method for removing small tattoos quickly; however, some tattoos are too large to be treated surgically.

Some types of tattoo ink respond well to laser treatments. Dr. Thakur uses the latest laser technology from CynosureⓇ and CuteraⓇ during laser tattoo removal procedures.

The heat of those lasers breaks down tattoo ink underneath the skin and reduces its color. You may require several laser treatment sessions to remove your tattoo efficiently.

Dermabrasion is less common today, but in some cases, it's the best option for removing the tattooed layers of your skin.

How long does it take to see results from tattoo removal?

Tattoo removal results depend on the type of treatment received and size and color of the tattoo. Laser treatments, for example, require numerous sessions over several months. Surgical tattoo removal, on the other hand, is a same-day treatment.

If you have reasonable expectations about the results you can achieve, Dr. Thakur will help you reach your goals, and you can enjoy clear, tattoo-free skin.
