Tattoo Removal

Request Your Consultation

Are you regretting that tattoo you got years ago? Or maybe you just want to make space for some fresh ink? Whatever the reason may be, The Spa at MidAmerica Plastic Surgery is excited to offer tattoo removal treatments using Spectra Laser technology to patients in the Glen Carbon, Maryville, and Edwardsville, IL areas.

Tattoo removal with the Spectra laser works by utilizing advanced laser systems to target and eliminate unwanted tattoos. It is considered one of the most effective and safest methods for tattoo removal, suitable for various tattoo colors and skin types. The Spectra laser has various settings to accommodate a large range of skin tones, unlike lasers in the past. It is also the only FDA-approved laser to safely treat melasma. Spectra laser will primarily be performed on the face, neck, and décolleté. However, tattoo removal can be performed all over the body.

Spectra Laser: What To Expect

Before your treatment, you will have a short consultation with your provider to guarantee Spectra laser is right for you. After the consultation, a thin layer of carbon lotion will be applied to clean skin to set for 10-15 minutes. The first pass will create a slight warming sensation to warm the carbon to the skin. Next, you will feel a minor snapping while the carbon is blasted off of the skin. The procedure will take a total of 30-45 minutes.
