The Alex TriVantage provides both Dr Dubow and tattoo removal patients with new treatment capabilities, presenting unsurpassed removal of tattoos of all colors.
A: Laser energy is directed at the tattoo, passing harmlessly through the outer layers of the skin and directly targeting the tattoo ink. The laser disrupts the ink, allowing your body to absorb it and break it down naturally. Dr. Dubow and Dr. Goldman are experts in laser tattoo removal in Los Angeles.
A: Yes, certain colors respond quicker to laser tattoo removal. For example, black, red, dark orange, and dark blue are the easiest and fastest to removal. Green, purple, brown, light orange and light blue may require more visits. The depth of the tattoo will also determine how many treatments are needed, as well as the type of ink used. Lastly, your skin tone will play a part in how fast your tattoo responds to laser. Lighter skin tones typically have a higher success rate.
A: During your consultation, Dermatologist Dr Dubow will estimate the number of treatments you will need. As every person is unique, every tattoo is unique, but most tattoos take between 5-10 treatments to remove, each 4-6 weeks apart. All treatments are performed in our Beverly Hills office.
A: Topical or injectable anesthesia is applied before the procedure to minimize discomfort. Most patients are completely numb during the treatment and feel no discomfort. After the numbing medication wears off most patients report mild irritation or itching for 1-3 days for which we prescribe a special antibiotic and cortisone cream.
A: Most patients will not scar, however scarring is possible with any medical procedure. Compliance with our detailed after-care instructions will reduce your chances of scarring.
A: Yes, our lasers are very accurate so we can remove just a portion of your tattoo if you wish.
Avoid Sun for 4-6 Weeks Before Treatment: Tan skin cannot be treated as you risk burning the skin. Therefore, please take special care to avoid the sun and tanning beds on the area to be treated for 4-6 weeks before treatment. Wear broad-spectrum sun protection with SPF 30 or higher on any exposed area every day.
Cold Sores: If you have a history of cold sores, ask us about pre-care instructions.
