If you have tattoos that just don't represent who you are anymore, taking action has never been more affordable.

Lasers are an Effective Solution for Regretted Tattoos

If you are experiencing tattoo regret, you are like thousands of other men and women who have experienced similar feelings. The good news is that laser treatments at Hedden Plastic Surgery & Spa Greystone are a reliable solution for permanently removing or significantly lightening tattoos of all shapes, sizes and colors.

Laser Tattoo Removal is performed by our experienced Certified Laser Technicians in Birmingham, Alabama with FDA-approved lasers. The laser delivers energy into the skin which is absorbed by the tattoo ink, leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. The ink is broken into tiny particles that are gradually eliminated by the body.

Because tattoos are meant to last a lifetime, multiple laser sessions are required to break down the tattoo ink. The number of treatments depends on the location, size, depth and color of the tattoo and whether it is professional or homemade. Five to ten sessions are typically required. The treatments are spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart to give your body time to eliminate the tiny ink fragments. Minor crusting or bleeding may persist for a couple of days after each treatment, but the risk of scarring with laser tattoo removal is very low.

Laser tattoo removal works best on black and other dark colors because they absorb more of the laser energy. However, lighter-colored tattoos can also be removed or significantly lightened.
