About Laser Tattoo Removal
There are many reasons why you may no longer want a tattoo. Perhaps it resembles a painful memory, it has faded over time, or it just doesn't represent who you are any longer. Regardless of the reason, advancements in tattoo removal technology have made it possible to lighten and potentially remove the undesired tattoo completely. At GLO Laser & Med Spa in Houston, TX, our experienced professionals offer tattoo removal with a high-tech laser system called PicoSure® by Cynosure, a device that is known to yield better results than traditional tattoo removal systems and could require fewer treatments.
"Oh wow, finally I have my Ultherapy done!!!1, I am sooooo amazed by Dr. Li's extensive experience and deep knowledge about human anatomy, anesthesiology and cosmetic medicine. Its very hard to find someone who can perform this procedure well while experiencing little pain. Even during the preliminary consultation, she made sure I understood not only HOW each procedure will be done, but WHY each procedure needs to be done. You will learn a great deal about your own facial/physical construction and be able to make an informed decision on what you would like to be done.2. Dr. Li has exhibits great bedside manners and professionalism. She takes the time to listen to your needs and expectations rather jumping in and telling you what she thinks should be done. Her professional manner will instantly gain your trust and you will connect on a personable level during your visit.3.Dr. Li truly goes above and beyond for her patients. She does tailors each treatment plan to what suits YOU as an unique individual. She is a rare find, an absolute gem and will make you feel beautiful and confident inside and out.4.I consulted 3 different clinic about Ultherapy. Dr. Li's office provided is the most reasonable treatment plan. Just did my 1st treatment on 1/25/2020. Also have also been getting facials done at Dr. Li’s clinic back for the past 1.5 years. Here staff has always made me feel welcomed and treated me as a valued client."- Z.F. / Google / Jan 30, 2020

"I had laser vein treatment one month ago to remove the severe spider vein on my face. My 8-year-old daughter found the big difference in the evening after the treatment. She said my face looks much brighter and smoother. The result is far beyond my expectations. And I can't feel any discomfort at all. I'm so happy and satisfied with Dr. Li's services. She and her team are so professional and friendly. Will continue my other 3 treatments to remove my spider vein completely."- Y.Y. / Google / Oct 17, 2019

There are several factors that could increase the success of your tattoo removal. Ideal candidates for this procedure:
- Have strong immune systems. A strong immune system improves the body’s ability to dispose of the broken down ink properties.
- Have good overall health. Not smoking and eating a well-balanced diet help the body’s immune system work at full capacity.
- Have a deep 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.
Once we decide that your skin is ideal for tattoo removal treatment, the treatment area will be prepped with a deep cleaning and an application of a numbing cream. GLO Laser & Med Spa will then pass the applicator over the surface of the skin as it emits energy and pulsing laser light. The treatment time can vary, depending on the type and size of the tattoo. In some circumstances, the tattoo will require a number of treatments before noticeable results can be seen. This will all be discussed with you at your consultation.
What to Expect
Following each treatment, an ointment will be applied to the treatment area along with bandages to protect the skin. You may experience redness, sensitivity, and swelling. You could also feel a sunburned sensation followed by a slight scabbing. It is important to follow aftercare instructions precisely to expedite the healing process. After the skin has healed, you can schedule your next treatment session. We recommend scheduling treatments more than 4 – 7 weeks apart.
