That tattoo of your favorite rock band in 1999 seemed like a good idea at the time – but now that you’re a little bit older and a lot wiser, you’re ready to make a change.  Whether you want to enjoy your skin again or just get rid of a reminder of the past, you’re interested in laser tattoo removal.

But how much do you really know about laser tattoo removal? How do you know what to expect from the procedure?  Most importantly, will it be painful?

Here at the Fountain of Youth Medical Center in Victoria, Texas, owner Dr. Nhi Le and her staff have encountered plenty of these questions before. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of honest answers that can help you separate fact and fiction from laser tattoo removal (including if it’s going to hurt!):

  • Unfortunately, there is some discomfort involved in laser tattoo removal; but it’s not especially painful. Le ensures that clients are as comfortable as possible during the procedure by ensuring that cold air is blown on the skin.  She also uses ice and numbing agents during the prep stages of the procedure.  Fortunately, the treatment is fast, so any discomfort only lasts for a short amount of time.
  • Laser tattoo removal doesn’t work within one session. Most tattoos can be removed with a treatment regimen of eight sessions.  If you hear or see an advertisement for laser tattoo removal that promises pain-free results in just one session, think twice before you hand over your money.
  • Laser tattoo removal can be affordable, especially if you buy a package promotion. Le can discuss how many sessions may be needed to remove your tattoo and create a promotional package based on her estimate.

The Fountain of Youth Medical Spa in Victoria, Texas uses the Revlite 6 Conbio laser tattoo removal machine, which is considered the gold standard in the industry.  This ensures that you get the best results with the fewest sessions possible.  Dr. Le and her staff are trained and certified to conduct laser tattoo removal, so your safety and comfort will always be at the forefront.
