Laser Tattoo Removal
Ink isn’t forever.
Is it time for a change?
Do you want to remove or lighten a tattoo?
Dermacare Hampton Roads specializes in laser tattoo removal. We can fully remove tattoos or lighten them for easy coverup.
Our team of experts includes medical professionals with extensive laser training. We have safely practiced laser tattoo removal for over a decade. We are proud to introduce the best comprehensive tattoo removal laser in the world (as of 2019) to Hampton Roads with the Quanta Discovery Pico+ laser. This system has 3 true laser cores with the best wavelengths for tattoo removal (1064nm, 694nm & 532nm) firing in both Q-Switch mode and Pico Second mode to safely remove all colors on people of all skin types. This laser has also made the DeScribe Patch obsolete and unnecessary for most patients and tattoos.
Wondering what to expect? Every tattoo removal is different, which is why scheduling a consultation is so important.
Here are some results achieved by actual patients that show the power of Discovery Pico+

How does Laser Tattoo Removal work?
Dermacare’s Medlite C6 laser removes ink by generating a variety of light wavelengths that target different ink colors. The light passes into the skin and is absorbed by the ink, causing it to break into tiny particles, which can then be removed by the body’s natural filtering systems.
What types of tattoos can be removed with laser tattoo removal?
Professional, amateur (homemade), traumatic and surgical tattoos. We can also do tattoo shading, lightening & cover-ups.
How long does the treatment take?
Professional tattoos: 6-12 treatments ** With the DeScribe patch now as few as 4 treatments!! **
Amateur tattoos: 4-5 treatments ** With the DeScribe patch now as few as 2 treatments!! **
Tattoo shading, lightening & cover-ups: varies, call for free consult
Spacing: 6-8 weeks apart ** With the DeScribe patch now as soon as 4 weeks!! **
The number of treatments depends on the amount and type of ink used, and the depth of the ink in the skin.
Is laser tattoo removal painful?
Patients report a sensation similar to the snap of a small rubber band. Most patients don’t require local anesthesia, however we provide anesthetic numbing creams if needed.
What are typical results?
Following a series of treatments, the tattoos appearance may fade more than 95 percent, often erasing it completely. Results vary depending on the type of ink used and the depth of its application.
How do different colors in tattoos react to treatment?
Dark blue, black and red inks react most favorably to laser tattoo removal as do oranges and purples. Green, light blue and yellow inks are the most difficult to remove, additional treatments may be needed to produce significant fading.
Are there any side effects?
The system provides maximum tattoo removal while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. Occasionally, pinpoint bleeding may be associated with the treatment.
