About Laser Tattoo Removal

Patients may want to remove their body art for a variety of reasons, restoring their appearance to the way it was before their tattoo. At Bass Plastic Surgery, plastic surgeon Dr. Lawrence Bass is able to perform laser tattoo removal to help patients get their old skin back. Using the Cynosure PicoSure laser system, Dr. Bass can target the desired areas to allow the heat of the laser to absorb the ink, which will fade over time through a series of sessions. New York, NY patients who are interested in having their tattoos reduced can schedule a consultation to start their treatment plan today. 

Best Candidates

Laser tattoo removal treatments will yield the best results if:

  • Patients have older, faded tattoos that they want to be removed
  • Patients have small or medium-sized tattoos that are simple in design
  • Patients have a realistic expectation for their results 

What to Expect

If patients are deemed a candidate for laser tattoo removal, their procedure will begin onsite in our New York, NY office. The treated area will be cleaned first and then a Cynosure PicoSure laser device will be passed over the skin to expose the ink particles. The procedure length will vary depending on the size of the tattoo and how fresh the ink is. The laser energy will cause some stinging, which can be controlled with a topical anesthetic cream if desired. 

Anticipated Results

In most cases, multiple sessions are required to fully reduce the appearance of the tattoo. In some cases, there will not fade completely depending on tattoo color or if the ink is fresh. However, the appearance will be greatly diminished, with each session fading its visibility. After all of the sessions have been completed, the results should be long lasting, and patients can enjoy their restored skin for a lifetime.

If you're tired of your tattoo or are not satisfied with its appearance, we invite you to consider laser tattoo removal.
