Sometimes that “permanent reminder of a temporary feeling” doesn't represent your life anymore? Some love their tattoos; others however, wish they had thought twice before getting inked. Skinner Family Practice is thrilled to offer Laser Tattoo Removal services to El Dorado, Arkansas!
Tattoos are created by injecting colored pigment into small deep holes made in the skin. Regardless of whether a tattoo artist or an untrained individual injects the pigment, the marks or designs are relatively permanent. When people subsequently want their tattoos removed, most physicians today consider laser tattoo removal one of the best methods.
Our next-generation laser tattoo removal technology uses ultrashort light pulses to target the ink particles of the tattoo, breaking up the ink pigment. Then over time, your body’s own macrophages (white blood cells that remove cellular debris) regenerate the pigmented areas back to regular skin. This makes laser tattoo removal easy, safe, and effective.
Unwanted dark and multi-colored tattoos can be safely and effectively eliminated with our range of tattoo removal treatments. Using a combination of laser wavelengths that target different ink colors, high-intensity light beams break up the ink particles in the tattoo, revealing clear, ink-free skin with minimal risk of scarring or hypopigmentation.
Laser tattoo removal typically takes between 2 and 12 treatments to achieve expected results. Successful multi-color tattoo removal requires a high powered laser that can deliver enough energy within the absorption spectrum of a wide range of colors. Our high power Q-Switched Nd:YAG 1064nm laser is ideal for treating darker ink colors (black, blue and green), while the 532nm wavelength is effective for brighter ink colors (red, orange and yellow). The treatment mechanically breaks down ink particles without causing thermal damage, causing the tattoo to fade with minimal risk of scarring or hypopigmentation.
