Austin Laser Tattoo Removal

Want to Get Rid of Your Tattoo?

Do you have a tattoo that once seemed to be a good idea, but now you want removed? You’re not alone. Over 45 million Americans have at least one tattoo. Whether your tattoo is distorted, faded, interfering with career opportunities, or simply no longer significant to you, Dr. Zimmet can help. New laser technology often allows for a quick and effective removal of your unwanted tattoo.

Our Austin office can assist you with all of your tattoo removal needs using our laser tattoo removal process.

How Does Laser Removal Work?

Each tattoo is different, so treatment can vary from person to person. Your treatment will depend on the size, age and color of your tattoo. Blue, black and red tattoos typically respond well.

After assessing your tattoo and skin tone, Dr. Zimmet will use the Tri-Beam Q-Switched Laser for treatment. The laser operates at a high peak power that allows for effective penetration. It also has a short pulse duration that minimizes the risk of damage to surrounding tissue. Most tattoos need multiple treatments to obtain maximal fading.

Do You Treat All Tattoos?

With the exception of permanent make-up, we treat most tattoos.

Will the Tattoo Completely Disappear?

In some cases, the tattoo will disappear completely, while in others it will usually be lightened significantly. The ability to completely remove a tattoo depends on several factors, including size, location, type of ink and depth of ink.

Does Laser Removal Hurt?

We typically use topical anesthesia and/or a Zimmer chiller during laser tattoo removal. Most patients find discomfort to be minimal with this approach.

Are There Any Side Effects?

The Tri-Beam Q-Switched Laser enables treatment with a low risk of scarring. Redness and/or discoloration can occur, but is typically temporary.

After laser treatment, you will be asked to apply an ointment over the affected area for a few days. You should also keep your treatment area out of the sun.
