Tattoo Removal
Break Down Ink to "Erase" Unwanted Reminders of Past Decisions with Laser Light in the Philadelphia Area

Tattoos used to be forever. Inked artwork in the skin fades a bit over time, but until recent years, once you went under the needle, you were stuck with the results—whether you liked them or not. Now, with laser tattoo removal, the Philadelphia area's Buinewicz Cosmetic Surgery can help patients to "clear the slate" and start fresh by targeting unwanted ink.

Dr. Brian Buinewicz and Dr. Annie Buinewicz use the advanced PicoSure® laser, developed to safely provide superior results while minimizing discomfort. This laser is also ideal for skin rejuvenation thanks to its ability to stimulate natural collagen production below the surface.

What Is Laser Tattoo Removal?

Creating a tattoo involves injecting particles of ink beneath the surface of the skin, where they stay in place and remain visible—essentially forever. This is great for people who love their results, but not so ideal for anyone who regrets their choice of artwork. For anyone who wishes they could erase a mistake to better forget the past, be more appealing in job interviews, or for any reason, there is laser tattoo removal.

The PicoSure® laser tattoo removal system uses powerful beams of focused light that pass through the skin's surface to break ink particles down into even smaller pieces. These microscopic bits are too tiny to remain in place, and they are gradually absorbed by the body. The result is a less-visible tattoo.

What Are the Details of Laser Tattoo Removal at the Philadelphia Area's Buinewicz Cosmetic Surgery?

We must first examine any unwanted tattoo closely, since the ink's colors, placement, age, and more will all impact our treatment approach. Once we have the necessary information, we will develop a plan. Most tattoos require multiple treatment sessions in order to achieve the ideal effect.

Applications of the laser during the tattoo removal session will feel like quick "snaps" against the skin. The treatment generates heat, but all of these sensations are typically well tolerated—especially by people eager to move forward without the targeted ink—and we apply a topical anesthetic to further improve patient comfort.

What Happens After Laser Tattoo Removal?

Side effects are minor—typically just minimal swelling and redness—so patients are free to resume their activity of choice as soon as they'd like after a session. We do advise keeping the targeted area out of the sun, since laser-treated skin is especially sensitive and prone to be more easily damaged by UV rays.

The tattoo breakdown process is gradual, so expect to see the ink fade over a span of months. This time period will be punctuated with treatment sessions that further break down the tattoo.

Over time, the original artwork or words will become increasingly harder to make out.
