LASER TATTOO REMOVAL

Fading Unwanted Ink for Bryn Mawr, Newtown Square, Main Line, and Beyond

You don't have to live with unwanted tattoos any longer. Laser tattoo removal can take away undesirable words, designs, and images on your chest, legs, arms, back, neck, hands, and shoulders with expert treatment from Cirillo Cosmetic Dermatology Spa. We use the Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser to remove red, blue, and black tattoo ink and the Alexandrite laser to remove green ink. Most patients enjoy clearer skin and a fresh outlook after just three to six treatments.

Many people choose laser tattoo removal in the Philadelphia area to erase a sign of their past they no longer wish to carry. Others seek to remove the ink so they can apply for a job with employers that may frown on a visible tattoo. Whatever the reason, laser tattoo removal is available to help you start a new phase of your life with a clean slate.

How does laser tattoo removal work?

Tattoo ink is injected about a millimeter into the skin, where it sits in chunks too large for the body's healing processes to carry away. In fact, our natural defense mechanisms are part of why tattoos remain visible for so long. The dermis, just below the outermost layer of skin, basically learns to live with the ink.

To remove a tattoo, a member of our team will treat it with lasers, which break the larger pieces of ink down into smaller bits that the clean-up cells, known as macrophages, can remove. Earlier versions of this laser only worked on black ink, but advances in technology have improved the process so it can work on a variety of colors.

Every tattoo is different, so there is no standard for laser tattoo removal. The time, number of sessions, end results, cost, and more depend on a variety of factors, including your skin type, the size and age of the tattoo, the ink colors, and the skill of the artist who gave it to you.

Safe, effective tattoo removal can be yours. Contact Cirillo Cosmetic Dermatology Spa for a consultation about laser tattoo removal in the Philadelphia area by visiting the Contact Us page on our website or phoning 610.525.5029.
