Very happy with my experience at Thrive! Dr. Maddox is super nice, very smart and thorough. Ashley and Shawna were both great to work with – They made me feel 100% comfortable and the results I got exceeded my expectations. Looking forward to working with the Thrive staff again in the future!

The Thrive Aesthetic and Anti-aging Center team takes the time to help patients in the area look and feel their best. Patients with unwanted tattoos on the skin often ask our team about removal methods. At Thrive, we provide state-of-the-art methods using superior technology that can remove tattoos with little pain and more efficiency than ever before! We understand that people have been decorating their body with tattoos for thousands of years and that many patients experience remorse and dissatisfaction with the tattoos they have received as they age. While in the past, tattoos have been removed with burning and cutting the skin, these techniques leave scarring and damage. Dermatologists then started attempting to use dermabrasion and CO2 lasers to reduce the appearance of tattoos though these were often ineffective on certain pigmentations. Now, patients can enjoy laser tattoo removal with dramatic, safe, and effective results.

Laser tattoo removal works by targeting the pigment, causing it to break down. The device is highly adjustable, because each color responds differently to various wavelength. When laser treatment is performed properly by a knowledgeable technician, the tattoo can be removed entirely, or lightened enough that it is barely noticeable. Our team is extensively trained and experienced in this procedure, and they have the expertise to achieve optimal results with minimal discomfort. We will discuss the procedure and likely results, and answer your questions, during your consultation.

Tattoo Removal There are many factors that need to be taken into consideration when patients need to have a tattoo removed. Most tattoos will take anywhere from six to ten treatments to fully remove. This also depends on the color of the skin, the size of the tattoo, the quality of the inks used in the tattoos, and the location. Patients will find that darker pigments will break down faster and more effectively in fewer treatments than lighter inks that may initially darken and then break down further throughout the process. Our staff can adjust the laser device accordingly to meet the needs of the patient based on the appearance and quality of the tattoo on the skin.
