Tatttoo Removal in Bowie, Maryland

The tattoo you got two weeks ago, two months ago, two years ago, or even two decades ago that you thought was permanent can now be removed through a simple treatment process called laser tattoo removal. At RoseHall Medical Aesthetics, we offer treatment plans with the Lutronic™ Hollywood Spectra laser that can safely and effectively remove tattoos of different sizes, shapes, and colors, so patients can achieve uniform skin.

What Is Tattoo Removal?

Tattoo removal uses a laser to remove tattoos from the skin. We offer treatments with the Lutronic™ Hollywood Spectra device, a powerful laser that can target tattoo pigment, shatter that pigment, and initiate a healing response from the body to eventually remove all traces of the tattoo from the treatment area. The process is simple, effective, and can meet the needs of patients with all kinds of tattoo removal goals.

What Are the Treatment Benefits?

There are many benefits to investing in a customized laser treatment plan. Once you complete the recommended number of sessions, you’ll no longer have to feel self-conscious about your tattoo, be reminded of it every time you look in the mirror, or attempt to cover it up with cosmetic products. Other treatment benefits include the following:
  • Removing an unwanted tattoo can help patients feel more confident in their appearance
  • The tattoo removal process is quick, straightforward, and comfortable
  • The laser device can eliminate both smaller and larger tattoos from the skin
  • The laser device will also rejuvenate the skin while removing unwanted pigment from the treatment area

The Lutronic™ Hollywood Spectra Laser

The Lutronic™ Hollywood Spectra Laser uses advanced technology and an ultra-short pulse to permanently remove tattoos. The 1064/532nm laser light is safe for all skin types. While this device is known for its ability to rejuvenate the skin, it’s also well known for its effectiveness in eliminating tattoos of different sizes, types, and colors.

How It Works

The Lutronic™ Hollywood Spectra Laser device uses laser energy to lighten and remove tattoos. The laser is attracted to the ink particles, and as the ink particles absorb the laser light, they shatter into tiny particles that the body then eliminates with an immune response through the lymphatic system. This is a process that can take several weeks for the body to accomplish, which is why follow-up treatments must be scheduled with a certain number of weeks between each for optimal results.

What To Expect From the Treatment

Before your treatment, we will provide you with some instructions on how to prepare your skin and what, if any, activities or products to avoid. During the treatment process, the laser device will deliver light energy directly to the tattoo pigment. Patients describe the feeling as similar to a gentle snap of a rubber band against the skin. While the treatment process doesn’t require topical numbing cream, we can discuss applying a numbing solution to your skin before your treatment if that’s your preference. After your treatment is over, the skin of and around the tattoo may appear red, which is a normal reaction to the treatment process.

How Long Do Treatments Take?

Tattoo removal treatments are relatively quick and can take as few as ten minutes to complete, but they can take up to 30 minutes or longer, depending on the size and number of tattoos you want to remove. You can expect to see an improvement in the appearance of your tattoo after each session. It will lighten and eventually disappear.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

As a general rule of thumb, the larger the tattoo, the more sessions it will take to remove it. Eliminating a tattoo can take several weeks. However, the pre-treatment consultation process will give you the opportunity to ask any questions about this process and allow us to provide more details about what you can expect from your unique treatment plan based on the size, color, and location of your tattoo. The best results come when patients follow a treatment plan with five to eight weeks between sessions so that the body can respond to the laser treatment, flush the pigment particles from the system, and heal the treatment area.

Am I a Good Candidate for Tattoo Removal?

If your unwanted tattoo is detracting from your appearance or is making you feel less confident, you may be a good candidate for tattoo removal. Our laser device can remove the darkest, brightest, and largest tattoos, so you can achieve a uniform skin tone and be free of that tattoo for good. An initial consultation will confirm whether you are a good candidate for tattoo removal.

Our advanced laser device can improve the appearance of your skin, restore a uniform skin tone, and eliminate every trace of that tattoo so that you can start afresh. We can schedule an initial consultation to provide you with more details about this process, what you can expect, and how it can improve your skin.
