Laser Tattoo Correction

Mistakes Happen, but You Don’t Have to Accept Them

Did your tattoo artist have a brain fart in the middle of your session? Did you honestly forget how to spell “Awesome” or your girlfriend’s name? How about the wrong dates? Backward Chinese characters? 

At New York Skin & Vein, we’ve seen it all! With our laser tattoo correction procedure, we can do the fine correction work to fix mistakes in your tattoo.

How Does Tattoo Correction Work?

At NYSVC, we use the Enlighten™ Pico Laser for all our tattoo treatments. This laser is a high-tech laser we use to produce great results for our clients. The laser light breaks the ink down into fragments that your body will naturally remove in the weeks following treatment. Enlighten™ uses both picosecond and nanosecond bursts of light, making it easy to hone in on small areas that may need correction. With tattoo correction, we use this technology to remove any portion of the tattoo that may be a mistake. We can correct spelling errors, remove rough-looking designs, really anything that needs to be corrected. We also have the ability to fully remove or lighten a tattoo if that’s what you’re looking for in a tattoo treatment.

Am I A Good Candidate For Laser Tattoo Correction?

If you have a tattoo you want to keep, but has something embarrassing about it you want to correct, Enlighten™ can help you correct the mistake so you can love your tattoo again. Enlighten™ is safe for all skin tones, can remove almost all ink colors, and will be effective for any otherwise healthy adult.

What is a Typical Treatment Like?

For tattoo correction, you can expect the treatment to take 15 to 45 minutes depending on the size of the tattoo. This makes the treatment easy to fit in a busy schedule, and since the area is numbed before treatment, you won’t feel a thing! Depending on what exactly you’re correcting with your tattoo, you may need multiple treatments to achieve your goals. If multiple sessions are required, they will be spaced every 4-8 weeks.

What Results Will I See?*

Patients who have undergone laser tattoo treatment with Enlighten™ have been pleased with the quickness of their results. You can expect to see fading of the treated area in just days following treatment as the body flushes away the broken up ink. After your tattoo has been corrected, you can feel confident again in your skin and show off your fixed tattoo with pride!

Is There Any Downtime?

The Enlighten™ laser is one of the best on the market in part because it requires no patient downtime after the completion of a session. Some patients may see redness or blisters for a few weeks after their session, but this is only temporary. If you need to have more than one session to correct your tattoo, they will be properly spaced to make sure your skin heals and recovers correctly before the next treatment.
