About Laser Tattoo Removal
Regardless of the reason that you no longer enjoy your tattoo, advancements in tattoo removal technology have made it feasible to lighten and potentially remove the undesired tattoo in its entirety. At Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute in Fort Washington, PA, our team of talented medical professionals, led by Dr. Aradhna Saxena, perform tattoo removal with a sophisticated laser system called the Q-Switched KTP and Nd:YAG. This laser device has proven to produce better results than previous tattoo removal systems and might require fewer treatments. Schedule a consultation at our facility to learn whether you are an ideal candidate for laser tattoo removal.
"My teenage daughter and I are both patients of Dr. Kasper. The reception area is modern and bright. The reception area staff is always welcoming. Dr. Kasper is friendly and efficient. Wait time is short, which I appreciate. I am thinking about booking an aesthetician appointment or two in the near future."- M.A. / Yelp / Jun 30, 2019
"Woowwwww! Went in for a while body exam because I gave fair skin. Best experience I have had at a dermatologist, or maybe at any doctors office ever. So clean. Punctual. Organized. Pleasant. The PA Amy that I saw was personable, pleasant and knowledgeable! What a tremendously positive experience! Would highly recommend !"- M.S. / Yelp / Feb 26, 2020

"Absolutely a positive experience. The office is really well designed. I walked in and was greeted and taken care of right away. The woman doing my registration was very nice. The doctor (Dr. Manion) was friendly and all business. Took care of my issue that day in less than 5 minutes. Pain free. Solid explanations. Great doctor. Scheduling a follow up was easy too. Amanda made it seamless and simple."- B.M. / Google / Feb 14, 2020
"I am new to this practice so I have only been there twice so I cannot make an overall rating yet. I will say that the check in receptionist was great. There was a discrepancy with my copay, the woman double checked the information and verified on her end what she was seeing which was incorrect. She then took me at my word and charged me the copay that I paid last time in case what I was saying was accurate. I confirmed later with the office building department (which was also a very pleasant and positive phone call) The front desk woman did not argue and neither did I. It was just a very pleasant transaction that in my experience with payment does not happen very often so it was refreshing and I am very grateful to her. Same thing with the billing department Jennifer I believe was very patient, kind, and helpful. Even though I've only been here for 2 visits so far top notch help and service. I truly appreciate what everyone has done for me so far."- J.B. / Google / Jan 30, 2020
There are a number of factors that could increase the success of your laser tattoo removal. The best candidates for this procedure:
- Have older and potentially faded tattoos
- Have strong immune systems, which help to eliminate the ink properties following treatment
- Have strong contrasts between the ink color and the pigment of the skin
- Are in good overall health
As soon as a member of our team determines that your skin is ideal for laser tattoo removal, the treatment area will be prepped with a careful cleansing and an application of a topical anesthetic. Next, we will pass the Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser over the surface of the skin as it emits energy and pulsing laser light. The time it takes to complete the procedure varies and depends on the size of the tattoo. Sometimes, the tattoo may require multiple treatments before obvious results can be seen. This will all be discussed with you during your consultation.
What to Expect
After each treatment, you may experience redness, sensitivity, and mild swelling. You might also feel a sunburn sensation followed by a slight scabbing during the healing process. It is important to adhere to aftercare instructions precisely to speed up the recovery process. Once the site has healed, you can schedule your next treatment session. We will discuss how frequently to schedule your sessions to allow for ample healing between them.
