What is Laser Tattoo Removal?
You may have many reasons why you no longer want a tattoo. Maybe it reminds you of a painful memory. Maybe it's faded over time, or maybe it just no longer represents who you are. Whatever the reason, breakthroughs in tattoo removal technology have helped make it possible to lighten and maybe even eliminate your undesired tattoo completely. At NoSweat Fort Wayne in Indiana, Dr. Philip Rettenmaier performs tattoo removal with Quanta Discovery Pico Plus. This laser device is known to produce better results than traditional tattoo removal systems and could require fewer treatments.

Who is a Candidate for Laser Tattoo Removal?
Laser tattoo removal is suitable for nearly all skin types and can be used to treat tattoos of any size, shape, color, or age. Our advanced laser technology penetrates deep into the tissue to break up ink pigment with minimal damage. However, some underlying medical conditions may impact your candidacy for treatment. Please inform our professionals at NoSweat Fort Wayne of your medical history and current medications during your consultation. Our goal is to provide the safest and most effective laser tattoo removal sessions possible.
What Can I Expect from Laser Tattoo Removal?
Once Dr. Rettenmaier decides that your skin is ideal for tattoo removal treatment, your tattoo will be prepared with a careful cleansing and an application of a topical anesthetic. Dr. Rettenmaier will begin by passing the Quanta Discovery Pico Plus applicator over the tattooed skin as it releases energy and pulsing laser light. The time it takes to complete the procedure can vary, depending on the size and type of the treatment area. Your tattoo may require a number of sessions before noticeable results can be seen. These factors will all be discussed during your consult. After each treatment, a topical cream will be applied to the treated area along with bandages to help protect your skin. You may experience redness and swelling, and you may feel like you have a sunburn. If the area starts to scab, you should not be alarmed as this is relatively normal. It's important to follow aftercare instructions carefully to speed up the recovery process. Once the site has healed, you can schedule your next treatment session. Dr. Rettenmaier does not recommend scheduling sessions sooner than 4 – 7 weeks apart.
