Does Tattoo Removal Leave Scars

Does Removing a Tattoo Leave Scars?

Regretting that tattoo you got when you were younger? It happens. Something that once meant something important can lose its significance over time, especially as you get older and go through life changes.

You should not have to continue living with something that is showcased on your body if you are no longer happy with it. Although tattoos are billed as something “permanent,” there are ways to remove that ink if you don’t want it anymore. Thanks to revolutionary laser technology, there is a non-invasive and pain-free option for tattoo removal in Miami.


What We Offer at Fox Vein & Laser Experts

At Fox Vein & Laser Experts, we offer patients tattoo removal with the FDA-cleared PicoWay® Laser. This particular laser procedure is different from other laser tattoo removal methods, mainly because of its pico technology. Other treatment methods deliver the laser energy to the site of the tattoo in long concentrated beams, which can be very uncomfortable and painful, but the PicoWay laser delivers these intense pulses of laser energy in very short bursts. These bursts are measured in “picoseconds,” which is one trillionth of a second. Yes, when we say short bursts, we really mean short. The bursts of energy are able to break up the pigmentation into tiny fragments, which are able to be absorbed by the body much more quickly.


The PicoWay laser is safe to use for all skin types and skin tones, and it works to remove tattoos in a wide range of colors. The older technology was not always able to remove tattoos completely if they were very dark or had a lot of different colors, but the PicoWay laser has proven successful. Treatments are faster, more effective, less painful, and more efficient than older tattoo removal methods. Some of the most common areas that people want tattoos removed from include the upper and lower back, arms, hips, face, neck, and buttocks. The PicoWay laser is safe to use on all areas of the body.


Common Questions Asked By Patients

One of the most common questions we get from patients who are interested in tattoo removal is whether the procedure will leave scarring or skin discoloration after the tattoo has been successfully removed. Because the laser will never be in contact with the skin for extended periods of time, there is much less of a risk for tattoo removal scars, discoloration, or other injuries to the skin surrounding the treated area. All that will be left after treatment is smooth, tattoo-free skin.


When you choose the PicoWay laser treatment for tattoo removal, the risk for any kind of side effect is minimized, and patient satisfaction is maximized! 



Don’t succumb yourself to painful methods of laser tattoo removal that might not even get rid of your entire tattoo, or maybe it takes so many sessions to get the job done that the treatment time frame seems to last forever. Tattoo removal with PicoWay Laser is the best option.
