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
"Wonderful experience, and I had skin cancer removed. From top to bottom, everyone I dealt with was professional and friendly. Exceptionally knowledgeable and helpful with clear and direct communication. Dr. Saxena is an amazing doc - I chose this office specifically because they had removed a spot for me about three years ago and I’m happy to say the experience was even better this time. A quick note on their COVID-19 procedure. Suffice it to say I am just as happy with the procedure they have in place. I felt safe the whole time. Very professional and comfortable."- M.S. / Google / Nov 03, 2020
"Dr. Kasper is a great physician. He takes the time to truly get to know his patients. He does a great job teaching his patients and answering their questions. The staff is very helpful as well. I highly recommend this clinic!"- S.M. / Google / Nov 02, 2020
"I saw Dr. David Kasper and he was excellent! He was polite, answered every question and took his time with me. It was a great experience!"- J.D. / Google / Oct 29, 2020
"I’ve been going to the Lansdale location for years for my annual skin check. This was postponed during COVID, but the staff set up a telemedicine visit for a new issue before I could get there in person. They made this simple! My annual check was done by a mew PA with them (but not new to derm), Charlie, and he took the time and was patient in answering all of my questions during the exam. Also can’t say enough for their COVID preparedness - no one had to touch my ID & insurance card, they had q-tips to use and dispose of for use of the tablets and sample bags pre-made since the sample jars are gone to keep everyone safe."- J.B. / Google / Oct 27, 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.
