Laser Tattoo Removal
Nearly 30% of people in the United States have a tattoo. But an estimated 50% of people end up changing their mind at some point in their life about the tattoo they received. For centuries tattoos have been permanent, with nothing a person could do but try to cover up a regretted tattoo. Now, thanks to the latest advancements in laser technology, at Silkey Skin MD we actually can make unwanted tattoos disappear.
Board certified surgeon Dr. Jacqueline Silkey, MD is one of the few medical providers in the entire Salt Lake City area to offer tattoo removal with the state-of-the-art Alma Harmony XL laser, featuring the specially designed ClearLift Tattoo handpiece.
This advanced laser technology utilizes special wavelengths of laser energy that target a broad range of tattoo colors, including: dark colors like black, blue and green; as well as brighter colors like red, orange, and yellow. The wavelengths are designed to only target and penetrate the pigment and not the rest of the surrounding skin, breaking up the pigment while not harming the rest of the skin.
Depending upon the size, depth, color, and type of ink, laser tattoo removal can typically require six to ten treatments spaced approximately four to eight weeks apart.
If you live in the greater Salt Lake City area and have a tattoo you would like to permanently get rid of, schedule a consultation at Silkey Skin MD and we’ll help you decide if laser tattoo removal is right for you.
