Tattoo Removal

Laser tattoo removal is a safe, effective way to remove unwanted tattoos. Tattoos are created by injecting pigments into the skin in order to create a permanent design or pattern. Laser tattoo removal works by using a high-intensity light beam that breaks up the pigment particles, allowing them to be absorbed and eliminated from the body over time.

At Apollo Health, we offer the latest laser tattoo removal technology. Our highly skilled professionals are dedicated to providing excellent results and optimal patient care. We use an advanced Q-switched Nd:YAG laser, which is one of the most successful lasers for removing tattoos. This technique targets pigment directly and it breaks down ink particles without damaging healthy surrounding skin tissue.

The advantages of laser tattoo removal at Apollo Health include minimal discomfort, short treatment times, fewer treatments compared to alternative methods, and fewer side effects. Our laser technology emits a very low temperature beam that is not hot enough to burn the skin. This allows for faster healing time with less inflammation and scarring than other methods of tattoo removal.

Our experienced staff will develop a personalized plan specifically for you. During the procedure, we apply a cooling gel to reduce discomfort and potential skin irritation. We also use patented laser technology and specific wavelengths to optimize the speed of healing, reduce pigment bleeding, and improve overall outcomes.

How many sessions will I need?

The number of sessions you need will depend on the size, color, and location of your tattoo. Generally speaking, it can take anywhere from 4-6 treatments to completely remove a tattoo, depending on the individual case.

Is laser tattoo removal painful?  

Laser tattoo removal can cause some discomfort, but the amount of pain experienced is usually quite tolerable and much less than that of getting a tattoo in the first place. Our staff will apply numbing cream and use cooling gels to help reduce any discomfort.

Are there any risks associated with laser tattoo removal?  

Laser tattoo removal is considered to be a very safe procedure, however, as with any medical treatment there are potential risks involved. These may include skin discoloration or scarring, infection, inflammation, and in some cases an allergic reaction. Our team of skilled professionals will take all the necessary precautions to minimize these risks.
