What is Laser Tattoo Removal?
When it is time to remove a tattoo, we understand that you are searching for a medical professional with experience in eliminating body art efficiently. Perhaps that tattoo resembles a difficult memory, lost its color, or just no longer represents who you are. Regardless of the reason, advancements in tattoo removal technology have made it feasible to lighten and maybe even eliminate an unwanted tattoo in its entirety with our Alma™ Harmony XL laser. At Xage Medical Spa in Provo, UT, board-certified physician Dr. Stuart B. Porter and his team perform tattoo removal with an Alma Harmony XL laser system. This laser device has proven to produce better results than previous tattoo removal technologies and might require fewer treatments. Dr. Porter can assess your tattoo and give you an idea of what our laser tattoo removal can do for you. Call and schedule a consultation today at Xage Medical Spa.

Can You Remove My Tattoo?
There are several factors which could improve the success of your tattoo removal. Good candidates for laser tattoo removal:
- Have strong immune systems. A strong immune system improves the body’s ability to break down and eliminate the ink properties.
- Are healthy overall. Not smoking and eating a well-balanced diet aid the body’s immune system in performing at max capacity.
- Have great differences between the color of the ink and the pigment of the skin. Greater contrasts yield greater results.
- Have tattoos that are several years old. Older tattoos have a tendency to respond better to laser removal treatment.
Our Laser Tattoo Removal Technique
Once Dr. Porter determines that your skin is ideal for tattoo removal, the tattoo will be prepped with a careful cleansing and an application of a topical anesthetic. Dr. Porter will then pass the Alma Harmony XL device over the tattooed skin to emit energy and pulsing laser light. The time it takes to complete the procedure can vary depending on the size and location of the treatment area. Your tattoo may require several laser tattoo removal sessions before noticeable results can be seen. These factors will all be discussed with you at your consultation.
What to Expect
Following each treatment, a topical cream will be applied to the skin along with bandages to keep the area protected. You may notice swelling, redness, and sensitivity. You may also feel like you have a sunburn and experience slight scabbing. It is important to adhere to aftercare instructions precisely to expedite the recovery process. After the skin is ready, your next session may be scheduled. Sessions typically will not be scheduled less than 4 – 7 weeks of each other.
