I just switched over to Dr Maddox for my aesthetic procedures because I didn’t feel like I was getting good direction from my previous doctor. So far, I’m a very happy client! He’s approachable, professional and seems to genuinely care about my happiness and experience! I would definitely recommend him to others!

People have many reasons for seeking tattoo removal in the Portland area. A primary benefit is that you are freed from the burden of a tattoo you regret. Some people find that tattoos they received in their youth are holding them back from a good job, or they hide parts of their body because of an unsightly tattoo.

Treatments can remove tattoos of any size or color using short, slow bursts of light that are administered in a continuous wave. This process leaves little to no scarring and requires only a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort. The settings of each laser procedure are customized just for you, taking into account your skin type, the color, and size of the tattoo. These individualized settings help the laser break down the particles of the tattoo, which are then absorbed and flushed out by the body. The pulses of light used in many other aesthetic lasers are longer, which subjects the skin to amounts of heat that could be potentially harmful.

How it works - Tattor Removal Laser tattoo removal has become the standard of treatment in Portland and surrounding areas. This method is ideal because there is a low risk of scarring, no cutting, no damaging the skin, and there are minimal side effects from this non-surgical, in-office procedure. For increased comfort, laser tattoo removal may be performed under local anesthesia or with the application of a topical numbing cream.

At Thrive, we’re committed to treating your tattoos with only the best and most advanced technology. Because the energy enters the skin in short bursts, it leaves healthy cells intact and skin pigmentation undamaged. Upon the completion of your series of laser treatments, your skin will look even and the tattoo will be significantly lightened.
