What is Laser Tattoo Removal?
There may be a number of reasons why you no longer want a tattoo. Whatever the reason, advancements in tattoo removal technology have helped make it feasible to significantly diminish the appearance of an unwanted tattoo. At Arizona Skin Institute in Surprise, AZ, skilled dermatologist Dr Jay Mehta offers tattoo removal with the Alma™ Harmony XL Pro laser system. With this laser technology, dark and multi-colored tattoos can be safely and effectively treated with minimal risks of scarring or uneven patches of skin color (hypopigmentation). If you live in the Greater Phoenix area, give our office a call to schedule a consultation with our caring team.
"I love this place. It is super clean and staff are very versed in all aspects of skin care. I have not been here for awhile as I usually come out to Arizpna for the winter months and have been away but am back now and will be booking appointment right away. This place is so very different than many and do not push things at you. They are 100% professional."- B. / Healthgrades / Jan 08, 2020
"Greeted by a friendly staff :) I was pleased to learn that there was nothing alarming or cancerous after a thorough body check. However, the aging process, as well as many hours in the outdoors were evident! I really appreciated the time Becky spent explaining details about my skin, healthier skincare practices, and product suggestions to improve it - sun block being #1! Dr. Mehta was very pleasant and answered my questions (and fears) about any type of face treatment procedures. I feel very confident having him work on my skin to restore some of its lost glow. I highly recommend the Arizona Skin Institute."- M.A. / Google / Jun 11, 2020

"I visited the Peoria location. The staff is amazing! Everyone is friendly, professional, and very personable. I was having a hard day, not to mention, struggling for some time with some skin issues, and one of my doctors really went the extra mile to cheer me on and show her beautiful loving spirit with a friendly hug and positive, motivating feedback. I was very comfortable engaging with the doctors and asking questions. Having over 10 & 15 years of experience, they were very informative and confident. I really love this place and I recommend it to anyone seeking any areas of dermatology, like skin diseases & conditions, including cosmetic treatments like Botox, dermal fillers, and laser treatments."- M.B. / Google / Mar 03, 2020

Is laser tattoo removal right for me?
There are a number of factors that can contribute to the success of your tattoo removal treatment. Ideal candidates for laser tattoo removal:
- Have considerable contrast between the color of the ink and their skin tone — the higher the contrast, the greater the result.
- Have older tattoos because older body art has a tendency to respond better to laser removal treatment.
- Have a strong immune system, which helps the body’s ability to break down and eliminate the ink properties.
- Are in overall good health. Laser tattoo removal is generally not recommended for those with certain medical conditions, such as poorly controlled diabetes or active psoriasis.
Laser Tattoo Removal Treatment
On the day of your appointment, we'll thoroughly cleanse your tattoo and surrounding skin and apply a topical anesthetic. One of our certified skin care professionals will then pass the Alma Harmony XL Pro device over the surface of your skin while it emits pulsing wavelengths of light. The time it takes to complete the procedure varies depending on the type and size of the tattoo. On average, most people will require multiple sessions before seeing noticeable results. We'll discuss all of these factors with you during your consultation.
