Tattoo Removal

If you have an unwanted tattoo, the professionals at Gulf Coast Facial Plastics in Panama City can remove it. We offer treatments with NdYAG, a laser system that is recognized for providing superb removal of black pigments that are amongst the most challenging colors to remove from the skin. You may want to have your tattoo removed for many reasons, such as:

  • Career change
  • Change in lifestyle
  • End of a relationship
  • Poor-quality tattoo
  • Getting married
  • Feeling uncomfortable with the design or message of the tattoo

 

Whatever your reason for wanting to eliminate your tattoo, our team of medical professionals is here to help.

How Tattoo Removal Works
Removing a tattoo with laser energy works by administering a specific wavelength of intense light into your skin. The light is only absorbed by the tattoo pigments, and your skin remains unharmed. The light energy breaks apart the pigments, which are then absorbed by your body and eliminated.

Laser energy is applied to the tattoo in short bursts. The sensation of a laser treatment is similar to a small pinch on your skin. Some pigments may require multiple passes with the laser, and we are always aware of your comfort level. If you are unable to tolerate the experience, we can numb the skin to help you feel less discomfort.

Following treatment, your tattoo will be noticeably lighter. Some tattoos, such as those with only black pigment and simplistic designs, require only one treatment. Complex and colorful tattoos will require multiple treatments. With each treatment, you will see the tattoo gradually fading until there is little to no sign of the ink.

After each treatment, we provide instructions on how to protect the area to allow the skin to heal. We encourage you to take extra precautions to protect the treated skin from sunlight since the area will be much more sensitive to the damaging effects of the sun.
