Tattoo Removal Jacksonville


Tattoo Removal JacksonvilleDo you have an unwanted tattoo? How can something which seemed like such a great idea at the time now feel like a horrible mistake? Have you thought about getting a tattoo cover up but are worried that the only option is a big black blob or a giant tattoo? Are you just tired of looking at a bad tattoo? You are not alone if you have tattoo regrets. Maybe you have someone’s name tattooed on you whom you and your new partner would rather forget. Maybe it reminds you of a time in your life that you are ready to move on from. Maybe it was just poorly done by an unskilled tattoo artist. Whatever the reason, we understand your frustrations, and don’t think that you should suffer with your tattoo nightmares for the rest of your life.

As a plastic surgeon, I have been searching for the best tattoo removal process for years. I have been approached by many laser tattoo removal companies who all claim to have the best tattoo removal laser, but when I researched their results beyond their own laser tattoo removal before and after pictures, I was underwhelmed to say the least and could never commit to purchasing a laser due to all the problems associated with laser tattoo removal. In order to recover the cost of the very expensive laser, we would have to increase the laser tattoo removal cost which would make it price prohibitive for most people. Tattoo removal lasers are traditionally very painful and from my research can be a traumatic experience. I have also seen significant scarring after laser tattoo removal procedures, replacing the ink with scars. One of the other concerns I have is with how laser tattoo removal works. The ink is broken up by the laser and then relies on the body’s lymphatic system, immune system, and liver to clear out the byproducts of ink breakdown by the tattoo laser. There are tattoo removal creams that claim to be effective but there is no clear evidence that they work.

Then I came across GoTattless, and I believe that it will become a game changer for safe and effective Tattoo removal techniques. It is the first Non Laser medical tattoo removal service to become available, and it is now available at Posh Plastic Surgery in Jacksonville, FL.

What is GoTattless, and how is the tattoo removal done?

GoTattless is a safe and effective Non-Laser tattoo removal procedure. It is a medical procedure performed in our office by a licensed technician. The tattoo is removed using a method that is very similar to the technique of applying the tattoo. The treatment process takes 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on the size of the tattoo. A proprietary solution then draws the ink out of the skin and causes a scab to form. The ink gets encapsulated in the scab. In about two weeks, the ink falls off the body with the scab, and in 6 weeks, the area can be re-treated. It is elegant in its simplicity.

Are there any chemicals?

No. The solution is all natural. There are no synthetic chemicals or acids or allergens in the product. In addition, the ink is not left behind for the body to process. It is simply removed. It is the most natural tattoo removal technique available.

Is this a Pain free tattoo removal procedure?

Since GoTattless tattoo removal is done in a similar way a tattoo is applied, the process initially feels like the original tattoo for a few seconds until a numbing solution takes effect, and the rest is virtually painless. Patients who have undergone laser tattoo removal treatment state that GoTattless is much less painful and easier to tolerate.

What is the aftercare process?

The most important (And Challenging) part of caring for your tattoo removal treatment is to keep the area dry for 10 days. This means no bathing, showers, swimming or sweating until the scab has formed, and in most people this takes 7-10 days. Beyond that, there is not much to do but wait for the ink to fall off!

How many sessions does it take to see results?

Results vary depending on certain factors, such as the amount of ink and the thickness of skin, but most are eliminated in 3-6 treatments. Tattoos that are double inked or injected deep into the tissues may take longer.

Does this tattoo removal treatment cause scarring?

Because the tattoo removal process does not penetrate the deep dermis, the skin injury created resembles “road rash.” The healing process is different for everyone, but typically does not leave long term scars.   Results can also vary based on individual’s ability to keep the area dry.   Keeping it dry is essential to prevent infection, and infection can lead to scarring.  Keloid prone skin has a higher chance of scarring.  Areas that were treated with laser tattoo removal before or after the procedure can lead to scarring.  Sometimes the tattoo itself has minor scarring to begin with that was not noticed until the tattoo ink was taken up.

What we find is that there is sometimes a temporary pink discoloration, or a temporary lightening to the treated skin, which is usually gone by six weeks to two months, and then the next treatment can be performed. Treatments can be done until the tattoo is gone, or until it is lightened enough for a new tattoo cover up.

What is the cost of tattoo removal?
