Regretting that tattoo you got on a whim all those years ago?

Laser tattoo removal is the most effective method of removing unwanted tattoos, and we offer it right here at Central Ohio Skin Laser Center, a division of Central Ohio Skin and Cancer.

Laser tattoo removal works by aiming rapid-pulsed, high-intensity light energy at the pigment in your tattoo. This light energy causes the pigment to break into tiny particles that can then be absorbed and eliminated by the body. Whether you’ve got a small grey work piece on your ankle or a full-color back piece, you can achieve better clearance, faster, with laser tattoo removal at Central Ohio Skin and Cancer.

How many sessions it will take to achieve clarity, though, depends on the tattoo. Black ink tattoos are the easiest tattoos to remove and can achieve full clarity in just a few sessions. Green and blue inks are more difficult to remove and may require more treatments. The age and size of the tattoo, as well as the depth of the ink will also factor into the number of laser tattoo removal sessions you’ll need. Laser technology can also be used to lighten a tattoo in preparation for a cover-up or retouching.

Our laser division is headed by Dr. Richard Smialek, board-certified in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Dr. Smialek has been with COSC since 2010, and has been a sub-specialist in laser surgery and technology for over twenty years.
