Professional Tattoo Removal in Columbus, Ohio

Having a tattoo or several tattoos you dislike can dramatically impact your appearance and confidence. Fortunately, you don’t have to cover up your tattoo with an even bigger one–you can get your tattoo removed and restore your appearance with tattoo removal in Columbus, Ohio.

Eastside Dermatology offers professional laser tattoo removal services so you can love your skin again. With our advanced technology and experienced professionals, we can lighten or completely remove your tattoo or multiple tattoos with safe and effective laser treatments.

What to Expect for Your Laser Tattoo Removal Process

During your initial consultation at Eastside Dermatology, one of our friendly and knowledgeable dermatologists will examine your tattoo and evaluate its size, color, location, and age.

This assessment will help us determine if we can successfully remove or lighten your tattoo, the number of treatment sessions it may take, and which lasers would work best on your skin.

Our Columbus tattoo removal process involves directing laser energy at the tattoo, which breaks down the ink particles and allows the body to get rid of them naturally, leaving behind clear skin.

In the weeks after your session, your body’s immune system works to eliminate the fragmented ink particles, gradually lightening the tattoo. Since it takes several weeks for the tattoo to lighten, we typically schedule sessions between 6 and 8 weeks apart.

Each session only takes a few minutes, and while it can be uncomfortable, we offer numbing cream to help minimize any pain. Afterward, you can return to your usual activities.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Columbus Tattoo Removal

Is Tattoo Removal Effective?

Tattoo removal is effective; however, its effectiveness can vary based on the color of the ink. For example, tattoo colors such as blue, green, yellow, and orange are more difficult to fade than black ink. We have different lasers we can utilize for different ink colors, and our team will review all your options with you so you have realistic expectations for the procedure.

Is Tattoo Removal Safe?

Tattoo removal is safe for people with healthy immune systems who are not pregnant or breastfeeding. At Eastside Dermatology, we provide detailed aftercare instructions after each session to promote proper healing and minimize any potential side effects.

How Does Tattoo Removal Work?

When you get a tattoo, the ink particles are deposited into the dermis at such a rate that the body cannot get rid of them fast enough. They become trapped in this layer, allowing the tattoo to show through the epidermis. During the tattoo removal process, laser energy accelerates the breakdown of tattoo ink in the skin, allowing your immune system to naturally get rid of the ink particles and fade the tattoo.

Can Tattoo Removal Completely Remove the Tattoo?

Laser tattoo removal can completely remove a tattoo. Our team will advise you on whether you can expect complete removal based on your tattoo and ink colors.

Can Tattoo Removal Leave Scars?

When done professionally, laser tattoo removal does not leave scars. However, patients who neglect to properly care for their bodies and skin post-treatment are at a higher risk for scarring and infection, so it’s crucial to follow your dermatologist’s instructions to ensure your skin will heal properly.

How Many Tattoo Removal Sessions Will I Need?

The number of laser tattoo removal sessions you need depends on the tattoo size, color complexity, and individual response to treatment. It will also depend on your treatment goals. For example, someone who wants to lighten their ink for a cover-up tattoo will need fewer sessions than someone who wants a tattoo completely removed. Most patients need between three and ten laser treatments to achieve their goals.
