What is the best tattoo removal procedure?

Nowadays almost everybody has a tattoo and more and more people get tattooed. I sincerely regret the decision I made four years ago and I would like to remove mine. I have been reading a lot on the internet about tattoo removal procedures, but I am not sure which one I should choose. Can you please give me advice about the best tattoo removal procedure?

Best current technology are lasers.  Different lasers can be used for different pigments and different depth of tattoo.  You should find a practice that specializes in tattoo removals.  Be prepared for multiple treatments and high costs - the technology is not cheap.

Hi Luvanne, 

At our office we recommend the Medlite C6 laser for blue or black tattoos and the Alex TriVantage laser for multicolored tattoos. The laser targets the pigment in the tattoo. We recommend at least 4 treatments.
