How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?
Done with your tattoo? Advances in laser tattoo technology have made tattoo removal easier than before. We use the Spectrum Q Switched KTP: YAG laser to get rid of unwanted ink.
Tattoo removal works by breaking up tattoo pigment with quick pulses of energy and relies on the immune system to subsequently “clean up” these broken pigment particles.
Laser Tattoo Removal Is a Process
In general, professionally placed tattoos will require up to 12-16 treatments spread out every 6 weeks. Amateur tattoos generally require much fewer treatments. Some colors, such as teal, sky blue, yellow-tan, and bright green do not respond well to this treatment. This laser is not to be used to remove permanent make up including eyebrow microblading.
Topical anesthetic cream is applied at home one hour prior to treatment to minimize discomfort. Treatments are fast. Immediately after tattoo treatment, some pinpoint bleeding may occur and the tattoo will appear grayer. The area remains red for typically 2 weeks. Swelling, bruising, and blistering may occur.
I have a fair complexion and susceptible to skin issues. Enjoy going to their office the doctors and assistants have been very kind. Would recommend this office.
I had a great experience removing my skin cancer on the front of my shoulder a week ago. They were kind, detailed, and took the time to explain the whole process. I am glad I have chosen them to assist with my dermatology needs.
Very professional and skilled! Finally able to resolve some issues I’ve had in the past that other dermatologists ignored.
Dr. Woseth has long played a critical role in my health, for which I will be forever in his debt. He is one of the nicest and most competent doctors I have ever met.

Everyone at the office is very caring. I've been a patient here for about 3-4 years and they've taken care of me so well. The treatment they provide has been life changing!
First time doing a skin check and having something removed. They were very nice and fast. It was completely painless and relaxing. Pretty sure I found my new dermatologist.
