Laser Tattoo Removal FAQ's

Laser Tattoo Removal
Orange County, California

What type of tattoos can be removed with laser tattoo removal?

The SCMS laser can remove professional, amateur (homemade), traumatic and surgical tattoos.

How many treatments will it take to remove a tattoo with laser tattoo removal?

On the average, tattoos require 6-8 treatments. The number of laser tattoo removal treatments depends on the amount and type of ink used, and the depth of the ink in the skin.

Does the laser remove colored tattoos?

Dark (blue, black) and red inks will resolve the best. Oranges and purples usually fade as well. Green and yellow inks are the most difficult to remove, and additional treatments are needed to produce significant fading.

Will the tattoo completely disappear?

In many cases, yes. Greater than 95% fading of the tattoo may be accomplished. However, it is important to know that there are many, many types of tattoo inks in use worldwide today, none of which are regulated by the FDA. Not knowing which tattoo ink was used, or how deeply it was applied, makes it impossible for the physician to predict the degree of removal on any given tattoo.

Is laser tattoo removal painful?

The SCMS laser emits light in very short pulses. The impact of the energy from the powerful pulse of light is similar to the snap of a small rubber band on the skin. The majority of patients do not require anesthesia, depending on the size and location of the tattoo. Numbing creams are available if needed.
