Laser Tattoo Removal
At Plastic Surgery of Texas our expert technicians use the most advanced laser tattoo removal technology to safely remove your unwanted tattoos, with faster fading and flawless results. We are able to remove your tattoo completely, or just fade it ahead of getting cover-up art.
A typical professional tattoo requires approximately six to twelve treatments to completely remove; homemade or amateur tattoos tend to fade at a faster rate. Beware of our competitors who routinely over-promise and under-deliver!
How does the RevLite laser Work?
The RevLite laser produces rapid, short pulse widths of energy – this limits the healthy skin’s exposure to heat which makes treatments safe and fast. The resulting effect on the ink is vibration, shattering the target molecules. RevLite provides versatility to target the full color spectrum of different tattoo inks. It also allows us to perform non-ablative skin resurfacing, wrinkle reduction, and acne scar reduction, and is proven effective on dermal and epidermal pigmented lesions, including melasma.
Your tattoo will require multiple sessions before it’s fully removed. The amount of sessions or treatments will depend on how large your tattoo is, what sort of ink has been used and the length of time between your sessions.
Does the RevLite treatment hurt?
The feeling of each short pulse is usually described as feeling like the ‘snap’ of a rubber band on the skin. In the vast majority of cases, having a tattoo removed using the RevLite laser is less painful or at worst – only the same – as having the tattoo done.
How many sessions will I need?
This all depends on the size and type of ink used. As a rough guide a ‘professional’ tattoo will need between 6 and 10 sessions whereas an ‘amateur’ tattoo might only require between 3 and 6.
It’s always best to come and visit for a consultation first – we’ll be able to give you a more accurate idea of the number of sessions required.
