About Laser Tattoo Removal
There may be many reasons why you no longer want a tattoo. Maybe it reminds you of a painful memory. Maybe it has faded over time or just no longer represents who you are. Despite the reason, breakthroughs in tattoo removal technology have made it possible to lighten and potentially remove the undesired tattoo in its entirety. At Allegro MedSpa of Santa Rosa in Santa Rosa, CA, our experienced aesthetic team provides tattoo removal with the state-of-the-art PicoWay laser system. This laser energy device is known to yield better results than previous tattoo removal systems and might require fewer treatments.

There are several factors which might increase the success of your removal procedure. Fitting candidates for this procedure:
- Have strong immune systems. A strong immune system assists in the body's ability to dispose of the broken-down ink properties.
- Are in good overall health. Not smoking and eating a well-balanced diet aid the body's immune system in performing at full capacity.
- Have a great contrast between the color of the ink and the pigment of the skin. Greater contrasts yield greater results.
- Have tattoos that are several years old. Older tattoos have a tendency to respond better to laser removal treatment.
Once decided that your skin is ideal for tattoo removal, the treatment area will be prepped with a careful cleansing and an application of a numbing cream. The PicoWay laser handpiece will be passed over the surface of the skin as it emits laser light and pulsing energy. The treatment time can vary, depending on the size of the tattoo. In certain situations, the tattoo will require a number of treatments before noticeable results can be seen. This will all be discussed with you during your consult.
What to Expect
At the end of each treatment, an ointment will be applied to your treated skin along with bandages to help protect the area. You may notice redness, swelling, and sensitivity. You might also feel a sunburned sensation followed by a slight scabbing. It is important to follow aftercare instructions precisely to expedite the healing process. After the area has healed, your next session may be scheduled. It is not recommended to schedule sessions sooner than 4 – 7 weeks apart.
