Laser Tattoo Removal NJ
It seemed like a good idea at the time, right? But now that tattoo is just a reminder of something (or someone) you’d rather forget. Now that the memory has faded, it’s time to fade that tattoo and get it lasered so you can move on in life and leave the past behind. The truth is that while estimates show more than 10 million Americans have at least one tattoo, 50% of them later regret it. Whether it’s a reminder of a past relationship or a drunken night out or the younger, foolish days, now there is an effective solution. Luckily tattoo removal procedures have come a long way in recent years and now the Laser Tattoo Removal most Edgewater and Hoboken clients prefer is available at the Edgewater and Hoboken Cosmetic & Laser Centers.
What is the advantage to Laser Tattoo Removal?
Requiring no surgery and no cuts into the skin, the Q-Switched YAG Laser Tattoo Removal is considered the “gold standard” of tattoo removal procedures. Every tattoo is of a different color, age, design, and place on the body and it is important that you consult with Dr. T.G. Khan and the qualified professionals at Edgewater and Hoboken Cosmetic & Laser Centers as to the prospects for removing your particular tattoo. Older tattoos present the least troublesome cases and removal is achieved quite efficiently. But because of advances in tattoo technology, more recent tattoos can require more sessions to remove. Although highly unlikely, there is a slight chance of skin hypopigmentation and even a rare possibility of residual scarring.
How does the YAG Laser remove a Tattoo?
The way Q-Switched Laser Tattoo Removal works is by directing specific wavelengths of laser energy at the various ink colors in order to break apart and disseminate the ink particles. These tiny ink fragments can then be cleared up by the body’s scavenging cells, just as any unnecessary or harmful particle would be. The body’s ability to do this depends upon having a strong immune system, so a thorough consultation with Dr. T.G. Khan is important to determine whether or not you are a candidate for Laser Tattoo Removal. For best results, Laser Tattoo Removal does require several sessions, but each session tends to take only a few minutes and is over before you know it. How many sessions you will need depends on the color and depth of the ink level within the skin. Despite the refinement and efficiency of this laser technology, with multiple sessions, there is a chance of short-term blistering at the tattoo site which disappears within a few days. Remember, tattoos were never meant to be removed, so the removal process can be intensive. However, it is a lot easier and straight-forward with the most powerful and effective Laser Tattoo Removal machine on the market: The Focus Medical QS4MAX Q-Switched Yag Laser. Having 2 joules of energy, this laser is stronger and better than HOYA ConBio’s MedLite C6 (1.0 joules) and RevLite (1.6 joules) for the following reason: quite simply, the higher the power available means a larger treatment spot size can be utilized equaling the least amount of treatments and possible complications. And by using numbing cream and in some cases a numbing injection, the procedure is relatively painless and is over in just a few seconds to minutes. You will be impressed by the accuracy, speed, and results of the tattoo laser operated by one of the best laser specialists in the area: Dr. T.G. Khan, FACS.
Who should get Laser Tattoo Removal?
Laser Tattoo Removal is highly effective for the right clients. The laser is effective for all skin types and all tattoos located anywhere on the body – arms, chest, back, buttocks, legs, hands, ankles, face, neck – if you have it, it can be lasered. Darker skin types will simply need more time between sessions so the body can clear more of the pigment. So if you fall into this category, be sure to consult carefully with Dr. T.G. Khan as to the advisability and risks of the Laser Tattoo Removal process.
Why should I go to Dr. Khan for Laser Tattoo Removal?
Because of Dr. T.G. Khan’s extensive experience using lasers, getting your Laser Tattoo Removal at Edgewater and Hoboken Cosmetic & Laser Centers is an excellent choice over the tattoo removals offered by dermatologists, skin surgery centers, and using topical remedies at home such as Wrecking Balm.
