"Undo Your Tattoo" with the Experts
Our medical staff has performed over 12,000 tattoo removal procedures. As experts in this field, the doctors and registered nurses in our practice have published research in leading medical journals and have trained other Los-Angeles area doctors in the use of state-of-the-art laser treatments.
Patients who visit Dr. TATTOFF are able to receive a complimentary consultation with the doctor directly. No matter what tattoo removal doctor you choose, always make sure you are seeing doctors who practice dermatology and have a practice limited to treatment and diseases of the skin, hair & nails. The doctors at Dr. TATTOFF are uniquely qualified in this way to examine and treat the ink on your skin.
The Dr. TATTOFF Staff
The staff here at Dr. TATTOFF is fully committed to making your procedure as comfortable as possible. All of our employees have medical training and are available to answer any questions you might have-- some of us are undergoing the same laser tattoo removal procedures you are. We can talk to you about it from both a professional and personal point of view.
How does laser tattoo removal work?
Laser energy is directed at the tattooed area for a fraction of a second, passing harmlessly through the outer layer of the skin and targeting the tattoo ink directly. The laser disrupts the ink, allowing your body to absorb it and break it down naturally.
The process is not immediate. After the treatment, the ink that was exposed to the laser will break down and be removed by your body's immune system over a period of weeks. Once that process is complete, you can come in for your next visit, repeating the process until the tattoo is gone. Most tattoos average 5 to 15 treatments for full removal—some take longer and rarely may be complete after just a few visits. Some ink colors are harder to target and require more sessions. Because it is your body that actually breaks down the ink, every person's removal process will be different.
Does it hurt?
Laser tattoo removal is a low-risk, outpatient procedure. The discomfort of the procedure is minor, and has been described as similar to a rubber-band snapping on the skin. The procedure is also described as much less painful than getting a tattoo. Prior to your treatment, we numb the area with a high power topical anesthetic cream. As we treat the area, we cool the overlying skin with our Zimmer Cryo 5 skin cooler, resulting in additional anesthesia. This combination of topical anesthesia and cooling air makes the procedure as comfortable as possible- patients rave about this excellent new cooling system.
Can My Tattoo Be Removed?
Every tattoo is different, so no service available today can guarantee 100% success or zero skin discoloration. Dr. TATTOFF uses the most advanced technology available for the highest success rates around for full tattoo removal, and all tattoos can be at least significantly reduced.
Lighter skin tones have a higher success rate. Most tattoos are significantly reduced in appearance after the first session. Black, red, dark orange and dark blue tattoos will usually respond relatively quickly to treatments. Green, purple, brown, light orange and light blue colors may require more visits.
Dr. TATTOFF offers dicount laser tattoo removal treatments for Law Enforcement & Military Personnel.
