Tattoo Regret? We can help.

Tattoo regret is most commonly due to spur of the moment tattoos, having an ex’s name, or having misspellings. Fortunately, tattoo removal is not only possible, but also safe and effective. We are extremely experienced in removing tattoos and have personally been performing laser tattoo removal in our office since the late nineties.

The biggest improvement in laser tattoo removal has been the invention of picosecond lasers. These lasers deliver energy in shorter pulses in order to maximize the breakdown of the tattoo ink, resulting in fewer treatments than traditional devices. With picosecond lasers, you can expect a quick healing process. The devices are not widely available as they are more costly than the older devices, and we are proud to have the new, high tech PicoWay laser.

PicoWay is a remarkably innovative multi-wavelength picosecond laser that enables removal of multi-colored tattoos on any skin type. This laser emits bursts of energy that creates a photo-mechanical impact, breaking up the tattoo ink or pigmentation into smaller, more easily eliminated particles.During your appointment, we will utilize topical and/or injectable numbing to minimize any discomfort. Please be advised that multiple treatments are typically required for complete removal. For a more efficient and comfortable removal process, don’t hesitate to visit our office.

If you love your tattoo, keep it. If you are sick of seeing your ex’s name tattooed on your body, Dr. Potozkin and Dr. Ellis are here to help.
