Laser Tattoo Removal Birmingham-Hoover, AL

Have you been having second thoughts about a tattoo? Until recent years, a tattoo was forever. But now, state-of-the-art laser technology allows us to remove these etchings of youthful enthusiasm with a safe and effective procedure.

Regardless of why you want to get rid of a regretted tattoo, Spa Greystone's Certified Laser Technicians have the skills, experience and today's most advanced FDA-approved medical lasers to help you achieve your goal with Laser Tattoo Removal.

The reasons people have for wanting to remove tattoos are as varied as tattoos themselves. What once seemed like a bright idea may not have the same appeal as it did when you were younger. Some people may be embarrassed to wear certain clothes that reveal their tattoo, or feel that their tattoos are holding them back in their career. 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

Unwanted 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 Spa Greystone & Laser Center are a reliable solution for permanently removing or significantly lightening tattoos of all shapes, sizes and colors.

Laser Tattoo Removal is performed by Spa Greystone's experienced laser technicians with FDA-approved lasers. The laser delivers energy into the skin which is absorbed by the tattoo ink, leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. The laser energy breaks the ink into tiny particles that are gradually eliminated by the body.

The number of treatments required to break down the tattoo ink depends on the location, size, depth and color of the tattoo, and whether it is professional or homemade. If multiple treatments are required, they are spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart to give your body time to eliminate the tiny fragments of ink. 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.
