What Is Laser Tattoo Removal?

There may be a number of reasons why you no longer want your tattoo. Maybe it resembles a painful memory. Or maybe the color has faded or just no longer represents who you are. Whatever the reason, advancements in tattoo removal technology have made it possible to lighten and maybe even remove the unwanted tattoo altogether. At Vita Nova Anti-Aging and Rejuvenation Clinic in San Antonio, TX, board-certified internist Dr. Francisco Cardona provides laser tattoo removal with the sophisticated Alma Harmony® XL PRO. This laser energy device has proven to yield better results than other tattoo removal systems and may necessitate fewer treatments.

What are the Benefits of Laser Tattoo Removal?

At Vita Nova Anti-Aging and Rejuvenation Clinic, laser tattoo removal techniques can assist San Antonio, TX people wanting to eliminate undesirable, aged, or badly drawn ink by offering numerous upsides from treatment, including:

  • Eliminates uncomfortable, unfashionable, or unwanted ink from your skin
  • Dependable, tested treatment
  • Preserves untouched cells from harm or scars

What Is Recovery Like after Laser Tattoo Removal?

After each treatment, an ointment will be applied to the skin along with bandages to help protect the area. You may notice swelling, redness, and sensitivity. You may also feel a sunburned sensation and experience minor scabbing. It is important to follow aftercare instructions precisely to speed up the healing process. Once the site has healed, you can schedule your next treatment session. Sessions typically will not be scheduled less than 4 – 7 weeks of each other.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Laser Tattoo Removal?

There are a number of factors which could improve the success of your tattoo removal. Good candidates for this procedure:

  • Have a strong immune system. A strong immune system improves the body’s ability to dispose of the broken down ink properties.
  • Are healthy overall. Smoking and eating an unhealthy diet limit the body's immune system from working at max capacity.
  • Have great contrast between the ink color and the skin color. Greater contrasts yield greater results.
  • Have older tattoos. Older tattoos have a tendency to respond better to laser removal treatment.

What Can I Expect from Laser Tattoo Removal?

As soon as Dr. Cardona determines that your skin is ideal for tattoo removal, the tattoo will be prepared with a careful cleansing and an application of numbing cream. We will then begin by passing the Harmony XL PRO handpiece over the tattooed skin as it releases laser light and pulsing energy to break down the ink pigment. Your body's lymphatic system will flush out the ink particles from your body over a period of time. This will cause your tattoo to lighten in color or disappear altogether. At times, the tattoo may require multiple treatments before obvious results can be seen. This will all be discussed with you at your consultation.

I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Cardona and his amazing staff for any or all of a better healthier lifestyle and look for yourself. Alex and Jen and the rest of the staff are always wonderful and so pleasant to deal with every single time. I've been coming for months for my TRT treatments as well as hair restoration and have been so pleased with my experiences and definitely exceeded my expectations. Dr. Cardona shows so much compassion and genuinely cares about each one of his patients as well as his staff does. They are awesome!!!
