Many people have tattoos they regret and want removed from their skin. The most effective and minimally invasive option for tattoo removal is laser therapy. Light energy from laser treatments can target the ink of unwanted tattoos and break it down within the skin. Our skin specialists at LM Medical NYC offer laser tattoo removal at our cosmetic clinic in Manhattan.

Tattoos are considered permanent since they contain ink that is not removable by the body. The molecules of ink are too large to be absorbed by the body – they stay suspended in the skin to retain the color and shape of the tattoo. When you decide you no longer want a tattoo on your skin, there are two main options. The tattoo can be surgically removed, or the ink can be removed with laser energy, which is a less invasive option.

Tattoo removal with laser treatment uses targeted light energy to break apart the ink molecules within the skin. Once these spots of ink are made into smaller particles, the body’s immune system will remove the particles from the skin and absorb them into the body’s elimination system. The tattoo will slowly fade with each laser treatment until it is no longer visible.

Laser Treatment for Tattoos

Tattoo removal with laser treatment will usually require multiple procedures. Patients may need up to 10 sessions to remove the tattoo – the number of treatments depends on the size, colors and darkness of the tattoo. A numbing cream is typically used to reduce discomfort during the treatment, and the skin will need post-treatment care to heal after each procedure. Tattoo removal treatments are performed in a series over several months to achieve the desired results.

If you want a tattoo removed, laser treatments can be an option to reclaim your skin. Our skin specialists at LM Medical NYC can evaluate your tattoo and discuss the number of treatments that will be needed to effectively erase the ink from your skin.

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!
