Tattoos, if you have them you either love them or you hate them. For years, patients have been asking for tattoo removal and for years we've been testing and studying the results of all the technologies available.
We found all of these procedures to be painful with less than spectacular results. As with all of our services, we meticulously evaluate all aspects before ever bringing it to our patients. Often this process takes years, as in this case.
We are proud, to finally offer laser tattoo removal in Atlanta, GA! We have found the best laser for removing those less than attractive ink-ful masterpieces, those glaring reminders of yesteryear. The results have been amazing and we think you'll be impressed.
Laser Technology We Use for Tattoo Removal
The Revlite SI Laser offers revolutionary technology that allows us to remove tattoos quickly, with minimal discomfort. Most laser tattoo removal treatment sessions typically last no more than 30 seconds! This laser has four different wavelengths in it with each one targeting different colors precisely. Our patients, who have had tattoo removal done elsewhere, tell us the difference is remarkable!
Because every tattoo is unique and different so are the treatments to remove them. There are many factors that are taken into account in order to determine the number of treatments you will need to remove your tattoo.
The age of the tattoo, the colors present and the tattoo location are just a few of the factors that determine how many treatments you will need. During your complimentary consultation we will evaluate your tattoo to determine the number of sessions you will probably need. You can also expect us to provide realistic expectations as to the results we can expect to achieve.
In our experience, amateur tattoos are much easier to remove than those done by a professional tattoo artist. In addition, the diversity of the inks being used in the market can affect how easily the tattoo can be removed. Unfortunately, there is so much that is unknown about the type of ink or how much or deep it was placed that it is difficult to be precise about expectations. What we do know is that we have many patients who have been treated at other facilities for tattoo removal and we have been able to improve their results!
The best results are achieved removing black ink tattoos on all skin types (very fair to very dark). Tattoos that contain various colored inks are best removed on people with light skin. If you have dark skin and have a tattoo with various colors, expect the colors to fade substantially but we will NOT be able to remove all the color.
Atlanta Laser Tattoo Removal: What To Expect
The area where your tattoo is located with be cleansed with a baby wipe. We will cool the area with freezing cold air, this helps to numb the area prior to the procedure. We then laser the area using a special technique.
The tattoo will “frost”, meaning a hazy color will form over the tattoo. This will dissipate in about 20-30 minutes. Some people may notice swelling of the area.
You will begin to see fading in about one month following your first laser tattoo removal treatment. Depending on your skin type, you can expect to return for subsequent visits every 6-8 weeks. As a rule, tattoos can take between 5 to 15 sessions to remove. Your procedure will be done by either Dr. Kulkin or one of our PA’s or NP’s, each with years of laser experience.
