beforeafter_laser-tatoo With the introduction of the Astanza Trinity laser system at LeBeau Clinic, we are excited to now offer the most effective tattoo removal treatments available. The Astanza Trinity system can treat virtually any tattoo quickly, safely, and effectively.

With three wavelengths for versatility, the system allows effective removal in even the most difficult tattoos, for the most powerful treatments available. Tattoo removal treatments combined using the Zimmer Chiller provide the most comfortable treatments in the Pensacola, Fort Walton and Mobile areas.

Take a look at these frequently asked questions about laser tattoo removal at our office:

1. How does tattoo removal work? 

Dr. LeBeau uses state of the art lasers to direct energy at the ink in your tattoo for a fraction of a second. The laser energy passes harmlessly through the outer layer of your skin to target the tattoo ink directly. The laser fragments the ink into smaller components, which allows your body to absorb the ink and process it naturally.

2. Can all the colors be removed from my tattoo?

At LeBeau Clinic, we can remove most colors completely. While some colors require more treatments than other colors, even the most challenging colors will usually fade to a point where they’re nearly impossible to see.

3. Will my tattoo be completely gone after my first treatment?
Most tattoos require multiple treatments for full removal.

4. Will I see a change in my tattoo after each treatment?

Because each person and every tattoo is unique, everyone responds to laser tattoo removal treatments differently. Some people notice a distinct change with every treatment, while other people see changes after several treatments. When you follow our clinical staff’s advice, you receive the best results as soon as possible.

5. Are there limitations after laser tattoo removal treatments?
After treatment you can resume most or your usual activities as long as the treated area is not scratched or rubbed. You should keep the treated area out of the sun and covered while in the sun until your skin has healed.

6.Can I have just remove a part of my tattoo?
Yes! Our technology are extremely accurate. Quite often we remove just part of a tattoo so that you can have it redone correctly or look they way you want.

7. Will I have a scar after treatment?

When you follow our aftercare instructions, the chances of scarring are nearly nonexistent. If you have any preexisting scarring, those scars will remain as our lasers only remove ink, not scars.

8. Does tattoo removal hurt?

Pain is very subjective to each person. Your comfort level is greatly improved when we use our specially designed device to blow cold air on the are being treated to numb your skin.
