Laser Tattoo Removal Westchester

What was once a good idea can later be something you'd like to forget. As people progress through life they sometimes want to remove their tattoos, which were designed to last a lifetime. Today's advances in medical laser technology have made laser tattoo removal a viable option for Westchester County residents.

Laser Tattoo Removal

Dr. Rhoda Narins uses a medical laser, such as the Nd:YAG laser, to effectively erase tattoos. The benefits of laser removal include:
  • Complete tattoo removal, in many cases
  • Surrounding tissue is not harmed
  • Little to no scarring
  • Especially effective for dark colored inks like black, blue, and red

In addition to laser tattoo removal, Dr. Narins offers many other laser skin treatments that can enhance and rejuvenate the appearance of your skin.

How It Works

The laser emits short, high-intensity pulses of light at a specific wavelength that is absorbed by the pigment of the tattoo ink. The concentrated pigment in the ink absorbs the light much more than the surrounding tissue. This high concentration of light causes the ink to break down, and eventually be absorbed by the body. The surrounding tissue is unaffected.

You will immediately be able to notice improvements from the laser treatment. Your final results will depend on variations in the type of tattoo ink used and how it was administered. Many patients can expect complete tattoo removal after a series of treatment sessions.
