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.

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.
