What is Laser Tattoo Removal?
While some tattoos sound like a great idea when we get them, we tend to regret them as we get older. This common problem among our patients now has a safe and effective solution. Laser tattoo removal is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that allows our patients to nearly or completely remove the tattoos they no longer want on their bodies. At Suncoast Skin Solutions, we are proud to use the Ultralight II Laser System to remove our patients' tattoos. Our board-certified dermatologists typically see the best results when removing tattoos that are primarily made with black, brown, dark green, or dark blue ink.

To find out a more accurate cost for your laser tattoo removal treatment, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with one of our expert staff members.

What Can I Expect During my Laser Tattoo Removal Treatment?
Your laser tattoo removal treatments will be performed at your local Suncoast Skin Solutions office by one of our expert board-certified dermatologists. Before your laser tattoo removal treatment begins, a topical anesthetic will be generously applied to your desired treatment area. This is to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible throughout your treatment. Once numb, short bursts of laser technology will be evenly applied to your desired tattoo. Most patients describe this sensation as similar to the feeling of a rubber band being snapped against the skin. Most treatment sessions typically take less than an hour to complete.
What Can I Expect After my Laser Tattoo Removal Treatment?
Immediately following your laser tattoo removal treatment, you may notice your skin being red and sensitive, similar to the sensation of sunburn. Our dermatologists typically recommend you apply an antibacterial ointment to the treated area and keep it dry for up to two weeks following your treatment session. While patients typically see some results after each laser tattoo removal treatment session, it may take up to eight treatment sessions to completely remove the appearance of the treated tattoo.
Is Laser Tattoo Removal Right for Me?
If you're unhappy with one of your tattoos and are looking for a solution to remove it permanently, laser tattoo removal may be right for you.
