Laser Tattoo Removal
(Decorative, Cosmetic, Radiation, Traumatic)
Lasers are the safest and most effective way to remove unwanted tattoos.
Dr. Grossman’s office is equipped with state-of-the-art technology to remove decorative tattoos, which are the most common type of tattoo.
The MedLite C6® laser is the gold standard treatment for tattoo removal, using PhotoAcoustic action to target and shatter the tattoo ink so it can be safely removed through the body’s filtration process. Different wavelengths are used for treating different colors of tattoo ink. In most cases, multiple treatments are required to achieve the best results.
The same technology can treat cosmetic tattoos and traumatic tattoos (from a bicycle accident, for example). Lasers can also be used to remove radiation tattoos — markings on cancer patients used to help radiation therapists accurately aim the radiation at the treatment area. These small tattoos are typically blue or black and can be removed with a series of laser sessions.
