What Is Laser Tattoo Removal?
Whether it brings up painful memories, no longer represents who you are, or you simply don't like how it looks anymore, there are numerous reasons why you may want to have a tattoo removed. Regardless of why, advancements in tattoo removal equipment have helped make it feasible to lighten and potentially eliminate the undesired tattoo in its entirety. At Main Street Medical Center & The Vue MediSpa in Crestview, FL, Dr. Josh provides tattoo removal using the sophisticated Harmony® XL PRO laser system. The laser device has proven to yield better results than other tattoo removal systems and could necessitate fewer treatments.
How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?
Following your consultation and skin exam, we'll begin by cleaning the tattoo and surrounding skin before applying a topical anesthetic to ensure you are comfortable during your treatment. Once your skin is ready, one of our trained technicians will go to work with the handpiece, treating the inked skin with different wavelengths of light to remove shades of color. By using specific wavelengths and high-intensity light, the Harmony XL PRO can break down the particles of ink without damaging your skin, resulting in a gentler treatment with less chance of scarring.
The length of time needed to remove your tattoo will depend on its size, how dark it is, and other factors. Some tattoos may need multiple sessions to attain noticeable results. Dr. Josh and our staff will work with you during your consultation to determine how many treatments will be needed.

Laser Tattoo Removal FAQs
How much does laser tattoo removal cost?
The price of laser tattoo removal can vary according to the number of necessary treatments and the location of the tattoo. Just like many tattoos are unique, so are tattoo removal treatments. We can discuss the details of your treatment, including your expected cost, during your private consultation at our office. If you like, we can also help you find low-interest medical financing to make your tattoo removal more affordable.
Does laser tattoo removal have any side effects?
The side effects of laser tattoo removal are usually mild and often include redness, inflammation, sensitivity, scabbing, itching, and warmth around the treatment area. Many patients would compare the feeling to a minor sunburn that goes away in time. When you visit for your initial appointment, Dr. Josh will go over your tattoo removal plan and what you can expect in the way of side effects.
How many laser tattoo removal sessions will be needed to see full results?
Color, size, location, and age all play a role in determining how many treatments are needed to remove a tattoo. After examining your tattoo, our staff can put together a treatment plan, which will include an estimate for the number of required sessions.
When will I see results?
Results for laser tattoo treatments vary on a case-by-case basis. Following each session at our office, you will notice the tattoo becoming lighter in appearance. Different colors of ink can respond to different wavelengths, so that may affect the number of treatments you may ultimately need and how quickly your tattoo fades. Laser tattoo removal sessions are generally spaced 2 – 4 weeks apart to allow the ink to lighten and your skin to heal.
Are there options besides laser tattoo removal?
Laser tattoo removal is one of the safest, most effective options for individuals who want to reduce a tattoo's appearance while sparing their skin from unnecessary trauma. Microneedling or dermabrasion may be recommended as part of your tattoo removal plan to aid in treating and fortifying the skin.
