At Vein and Laser of Virginia we have invested in a state-of-the-art Q-switched laser, which is the most effective treatment available for tattoo removal. The Q-switched laser uses two different wavelengths so that blue/black and colored ink can be targeted. Treatment cost is based on the size of the tattoo and will be discussed at your consultation. All skin types can be treated. There is no down time.
In addition to laser therapy, we use Aldara (Imiquimod) Cream 5% to enhance and hasten tattoo removal. Aldara is an immune system modulator that is applied to the treated area immediately following laser treatment and then daily thereafter during treatment. Studies have shown that this method can cut laser treatment sessions in half which saves time and money for our clients.
