You may have loved your tattoo when you got it, but if you’re like a lot of people, it’s outlived its time. If this is the case, and you’d like to get your tattoo removed, we want you to know that it’s now easier, less painful and more affordable than ever before.
Why Do People Remove Tattoos?
Our patients have many different reasons for removing their tattoos, and here are the ones we hear the most:
- The tattoo is impacting their career and their ability to land an interview, get a new job or advance.
- It’s causing issues in their family, or their kids don’t like it.
- The tattoo is faded and unrecognizable. Even high-quality ones can do this.
- They’ve outgrown the tattoo.
- It reminds them of an ex.
- They want a new tattoo.
- They’re self-conscious.
- It’s not the same message they want to portray as they did when they were 18.
- They’re getting married.
- They want to leave the past behind.
- It was an alcohol-induced mistake.
Whatever your reason for removing your tattoo, it can be done over a period of time by qualified people. At PSC Aesthetics at the Plastic Surgery Center, we offer laser tattoo removal using the Q-Switched module on the Harmony laser.
Our laser can treat unwanted dark and multi-colored tattoos safely and effectively. Plus, for our patients with less pain tolerance, they can use our all new Pro-Nox anti-pain machine. During your treatment, you determine the amount of pain relief you need as you hold on to the disposable mouthpiece and hose as you breathe in nitrous oxide. Once the treatment is over, the gas is gone from your body.
The Harmony laser uses a combination of laser wavelengths to target different ink colors as high-intensity light beams break up the ink particles in the tattoo, revealing clear, ink-free skin. Patients have minimal risk of scarring or hypopigmentation.
Successful multi-color tattoo removal requires a high-powered laser and nurses with skill and experience. So, if you have tattoo regret like thousands of Americans, we offer the next-generation of laser tattoo removal technology to erase your ink.

Real Patients. Real Results.
Our real Plastic Surgery Center patient tells us so far his treatments are going well, and he’s happy with his tattoo removal results.
Tell us about your journey to tattoo removal:
PSC Patient: I’ve had my tattoo for about 25 years and have never really been happy with it. I decided it was time to get rid of it. My wife is a patient, and she told me they did tattoo removal, so I scheduled a consultation.
Describe the procedure.
PSC Patient: I’ve had four treatments, and I will probably need two more. None of my treatments have really hurt. In fact, it’s not as painful as getting the tattoo. They use numbing cream which keeps your pain down. It feels like being snapped with a rubber band, so it’s quite tolerable. The nurse goes very quickly over the area, so the treatment is done in no time at all. After the treatment, I cover the area for a couple of days and go about my business. There’s no pain or itching for me.
Tell us about your results.
PSC Patient: I am very happy with the results. It does take a long period of time to remove a tattoo, so patience is key. After the treatment, the tattoo “comes alive again,” and then over a small period of time it starts to fade even more. I have about 60 days between treatments to prevent scarring. The difference between the first treatment and the fourth is quite noticeable. The tattoo has really faded, and I’m excited as I near the end of my treatments.
Do you have advice for people considering tattoo removal?
PSC Patient: If you are thinking about removing your tattoo and don’t know much about it, I encourage you to get a consult. There’s nothing to be afraid of, and the results are outstanding.
You deserve expert guidance and exceptional results.
Plastic surgery involves many choices. The most important is selecting a surgeon you can trust. Expect exceptional results when you have your procedures performed by plastic surgeons who are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and who are members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons like Dr. Ferris and Dr. Sprole, or surgeons who are board-eligible, like Dr. Biskup. These specially trained doctors have at least six years of surgical training and experience, with a minimum of three years of plastic surgery.
