Pittsburgh’s Laser Tattoo Removal Experts

Laser Tattoo Removal Experts

It’s sandal season and every time you slip on your wedges you are reminded of the flower foot tattoo you got on Spring Break 2005! Laser Tattoo Removal Experts can help. That was a long time ago and though some of those memories may have faded, your lotus flower sure hasn’t!

Don’t fret – Beaver Valley Foot Clinic’s Body Beautiful Laser Medical Spa is here to the rescue!

At the Body Beautiful Laser Medical Spa, we use state-of-the-art tattoo removal technology to erase unwanted tattoos from the foot, ankle and leg region. Previously, tattoo removal could take several months and was rather painful. Thanks to the R20 Technique, tattoos that would have taken 4 months to remove now take a day and those that would have taken a year or two, now just takes a few months.

R20 technology uses a laser to create gas bubbles under the skin. As the bubbles disappear, it allows the laser to penetrate even further deeper into the skin allowing for faster tattoo removal.

Laser Tattoo Removal

With some tattoo removal, there may be some ink left behind. For that, we can follow-up with our Solutions Method which is conducted by implanting a solution with a tattoo needle over the pre-treated and faded tattoo. The solution will actually liquefy the remaining ink and bring the ink to the surface where your doctor can easily wipe the ink away!

Our most effective treatment and the #1 method for tattoo removal is Cynosure PicoSure. This laser removal technology uses Pressure Wave mechanics to break the ink into sand-like particles. Removal works by a process called Photodisruption. Photodisruption cause a micro-implosion under the skin shattering ink particles so much so that they’ll be expelled from the epidermis by natural cellular turnover. Layman’s terms? Over a few weeks, the ink is brought to the top layer of your skin and will naturally be whisked away as your body’s immune system will push the ink, a foreign entity, out of your body!

No matter the reason…

  • New job
  • Past spouse or significant other’s name
  • Bad artistry
  • Overall regret

Beaver Valley Foot Clinic’s Body Beautiful Laser Medical Spa is here to help you get rid of those unwanted foot, ankle or leg tattoos once and for all!

Exist any negative effects?

For the majority of people, side effects are a normal component of the tattoo removal procedure. In reality, some adverse reactions play a crucial role in the immunological response that aids in the removal of ink from the skin.

Every patient should be prepared for some degree of negative effects.

We urge medical professionals to fully describe each side effect during the initial appointment rather than skipping over it. As a result, when your patients agree to the tattoo removal procedure, they are informed and aren’t surprised the following day when their skin is sensitive and they may be unable to participate in their usual activities or wear their regular clothes.

The most frequent side effects are: tenderness and redness.

  • Swelling
  • Blistering
  • Scabs
  • Bruising
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Hypopigmentation

All of these adverse effects are transient if all the right procedures are followed based on the tattoo and the patient’s skin tone. Following therapy, redness, soreness, and swelling usually go away in a day or two. Blisters typically develop within 24 hours of therapy; occasionally, the blisters may be enormous and appear scary, but this is entirely normal. Blisters, scabs, and bruises could take a week or more to heal.

How much time will it take to get rid of my tattoo?

Almost all people are concerned about the length of the tattoo removal procedure.

Some patients might want to get rid of a noticeable tattoo before a special occasion, like their wedding or joining the military. It’s crucial to state up front that tattoo erasure depends on the body’s capacity to flush the ink from the skin.

The body often needs more than a year to entirely get rid of ink. Establishing clear expectations at the beginning enables patients to be satisfied throughout the process rather than feeling deceived.

We advise a minimum of six weeks between laser sessions, and eight weeks for darker skin tones.
