Tattoo Removal -- I suggest Pico Laser and/or Eclipse Micropen TR
Hi Paola72, Since the laser appears not to be working on your tattoo, you may need surgical excision of your tattoo. Unfortunately, you did not enclose a picture. However, I anticipate your tattoo can be removed in a single stage. Tattoo removal surgery can be performed in the office under local anesthesia. Depending on the tattoo, tattoo removal may take approximately one hour. After the tattoo removal, you will have a scar . The trade-off is that tattoo is gone. Please seek an experienced, American Board of Plastic Surgery board-certified plastic surgeon. If you have any other questions regarding the surgical removal of tattoos, please contact my office. Sincerely Dr. Katzen.
