About Laser Tattoo Removal
For multiple reasons, body art may become undesirable. A Q-switched laser is the most frequently used laser for tattoo removal. The laser “shatters” the pigment into particles small enough for the ink to be removed by the body’s natural filtering system. Our Q-switched 1064nm/532nm laser can effectively remove an array of tattoo ink colors with minimal risk. (Multiple treatments may be required and there are some colors resistant to laser tattoo removal). We also offer Describe Transparent PFD Patches that decrease discomfort and allow for multiple treatments in one session.
The Laser Tattoo Removal Procedure
An hour before the laser tattoo removal procedure begins, it is recommended that acetaminophen be taken to help minimize discomfort. Numbing cream, ice, or chilled air may be applied. Just before the procedure begins, the patient is given a shield to protect his or her eyes from the laser. The skin is tested to determine the response to the laser and to determine the most effective approach. The intense nanosecond pulses are sent from the Q-switched laser to the skin. If the PFD patch is used, multiple treatments may be administered.

"I have had several different types of treatments and products from About Face & Body. The whole team is so knowledgeable and helpful. I especially like that they bring in different product teams for overviews and demos!!"- C.M. / Google / Mar 19, 2020
"After being referred to About Face & Body by a friend for botox and lip injections I finally took the plunge and tried it out for myself. I have an excellent experience each time I visit and I love Michelle’s approach to facial artistry procedures. It’s a start slow, try a little and go from there style that I feel other Med Spas miss the mark on. Some places based on their “after” photos look like they shove too much product in people faces at one single time. But here you’ll leave still feeling like you look like yourself and that’s what I love the most. If you haven’t tried them or are considering any sort of work done, visit them and have a consultation. At the very least you’ll leave with more knowledge and understand than before. And you’ll have realistic expectations on what you’re thinking about having done. They are fantastic!"- D.B. / Google / Mar 19, 2020

How Long Does a Tattoo Removal Session Last?
Each laser tattoo removal session lasts only a few minutes and, at the end of each session, topical antibiotic and a bandage are then applied and patients are encouraged to ice the area for 30 minutes. There is no real downtime and the clients can resume normal activities although the area must be kept clean and free from irritation for a few days.
