Tattoo Removal in Boca Raton at Farber Plastic Surgery
Old loves, radical designs, mementos of a Vegas weekend, and tributes to Mom — Dr. Farber has seen them all. Tattoos can be artistic expressions that let people know more about you, but what if you change and the tattoo no longer fits who you are now?
What Is Tattoo Removal?
Laser tattoo removal is an option for people who prefer not to cover up their tattoos with clothing or another tattoo. The techniques used for removal have improved in recent years, but the outcome of removal depends on several factors, such as the age of the tattoo, colors used, and skill of the tattoo artist.
Is Tattoo Removal Right for Me?
The most common reason that people are not able to undergo laser tattoo removal is scarring. Dr. Farber examines your tattoo for signs of scarring and other indications to determine if the treatment will remove your tattoo. He will also advise you on the expected outcome of the treatment.
Meet Dr. Farber
Dr. Scott Farber is a board-certified plastic surgeon with over 10 years of experience who is dedicated to providing each patient with high-quality, personalized care. A Southern Florida native, Dr. Farber is well-versed in the latest surgical and non-surgical procedures and techniques.
What Happens During the Tattoo Removal Procedure?
Black ink is the easiest to remove with laser treatments because it absorbs all types of lasers, so other colors require an in-depth understanding of which laser wavelengths work best on each color. For this reason, you should trust your laser tattoo removal only to an experienced and qualified plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Farber.
How Much Does Tattoo Removal Cost in Boca Raton, FL?
Laser tattoo removal typically requires several treatments for best results, and the procedure is not covered by medical insurance. You can apply for financing and even be pre-approved before your first appointment. Farber Plastic Surgery also offers consultations with Dr. Farber.
On the Road to Recovery
An ice pack is applied immediately after treatment, and Dr. Farber may prescribe a topical antibiotic. A dressing is applied to protect the area while it heals, and once the dressing is removed, you should protect the area with sunscreen while outdoors.
