Tattoo Removal in Northern California

About Laser Tattoo Removal

Learn more about how our laser tattoo removal in Northern California can help you reclaim your skin.

There may be many reasons why you no longer want a tattoo. Maybe it reminds you of a painful memory. Maybe it has faded over time or just no longer represents who you are. 

Despite the reason, breakthroughs in tattoo removal technology have made it possible to lighten and potentially remove the undesired tattoo in its entirety. At Allegro MedSpa of Santa Rosa, our experienced aesthetic team provides tattoo removal with the state-of-the-art PicoWay laser system. This laser energy device is known to yield better results than previous tattoo removal systems and might require fewer treatments.

Who Should Get Laser Tattoo Removal

Ideal Candidates

There are several factors that might increase the success of your removal procedure. Fitting candidates for this procedure:

  • Have strong immune systems. A strong immune system assists in the body’s ability to dispose of the broken-down ink properties.
  • Are in good overall health. Not smoking and eating a well-balanced diet aid the body’s immune system in performing at full capacity.
  • Have a great contrast between the color of the ink and the pigment of the skin. Greater contrasts yield greater results.
  • Have tattoos that are several years old. Older tattoos have a tendency to respond better to laser removal treatment.

How it works

Procedure Technique

Learn more about how our tattoo removal in Northern California works.

Once decided that your skin is ideal for tattoo removal, the treatment area will be prepped with a careful cleansing and an application of numbing cream. The PicoWay laser handpiece will be passed over the surface of the skin as it emits laser light and pulsing energy. The treatment time can vary, depending on the size of the tattoo. In certain situations, the tattoo will require a number of treatments before noticeable results can be seen. This will all be discussed with you during your consult.

What to Expect

Here’s what you can expect with our tattoo removal in Northern California.

After Treatment

At the end of each treatment, an ointment will be applied to your treated skin along with bandages to help protect the area.

Side Effects

You may notice redness, swelling, and sensitivity. You might also feel a sunburned sensation followed by a slight scabbing. It is important to follow aftercare instructions precisely to expedite the healing process.

Follow up

After the area has healed, your next session may be scheduled. It is not recommended to schedule sessions sooner than 4 – 7 weeks apart.

How much does CoolSculpting cost?

The expense of CoolSculpting varies based on the number of treatments recommended and the amount of fat that you wish to have removed. During your consultation, we will discuss your cosmetic goals to choose the best course of treatment to achieve optimal results. We will also talk to you about your out-of-pocket costs.

How does CoolSculpting work?

CoolSculpting works by applying a controlled temperature to destroy fat cells in selected body parts for treatment. Essentially, it freezes the fat cells until they die. The cells are then broken down by the body and disposed of through natural functions.

Is CoolSculpting safe?

CoolSculpting is a minimally invasive, external treatment in which the device is applied to the skin’s surface. With this procedure, there is absolutely no need for a recovery period. You may experience some slight swelling and discoloration immediately after treatment, but this usually only lasts for around a week.

How many treatment sessions will I need?

The number of treatments that will be needed to reach your wanted results will be decided during your initial consultation. For some patients, only one treatment is enough, but other patients may need more treatment sessions, depending on the amount of fat being addressed. The number of treatments is dependent on your aesthetic goals and if there are thicker layers of fat in target sections.

Do the fat cells grow back?

While the destroyed fat cells will not regenerate, new fat cells could form. In addition, weight gain will greatly influence your results. Thus in order to maintain optimal results, it is recommended that you adhere to a healthy diet and exercise routine.
