If you regret a tattoo, you’re not alone! Tattoos are no longer permanent at Dr. Shah’s office. We have the technology to remove them with minimal pain and side effects.
A New You Plastic Surgery and Laser Center has the Q-switched YAG laser, which has been the laser of choice for removing tattoos. Q-switching refers to the process of producing short laser pulses very quickly. This type of laser has developed over the past few decades to produce a high-quality removal.
The dual wavelengths (1064nm/532nm) remove a wide array of tattoo pigments. The laser injects the skin with intense light, which penetrates the skin to break up the ink particles and leads to tattoo fading. Multiple treatments may be needed depending on the size of the tattoo and color.
If you are interested in seeing if you are a candidate for laser tattoo removal, call our office today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rajendra Shah, or Dr. Samir Shah. Call 708.424.3999 or contact us online.
