If you have a tattoo you hate, don’t worry we can help! Laser Tattoo Removal is available at Jazzi Cosmetic Surgery & Aesthetic Medicine in Lexington, Kentucky and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Rohrer Aesthetic Lasers have made it easy to remove a wide variety of tattoo pigments. We offer local numbing for patients to make this process as comfortable as possible for our patients. The laser targets pigment in the skin breaking down the ink over a period of time where the tattoo will no longer be visible!
We use a Q-switch Yag laser.
No bleaching or exfoliating within 48 hours before the treatment
Please notify the clinical staff if you use Blood Thinners, Fish Oils, Vitamin E, or NSAIDs
All of our patients will receive Lidocaine injections prior to their treatment.
Since we offer Lidocaine injections, the majority of patients say they feel nothing. However, it can feel like a hot rubber band snaps.

Keep the area covered for 48 hours after treatment and apply Bacitracin
