So you have a tattoo on your skin that you either a) hate, or b) regret. If this sounds like you, you may be wondering what your options are for removal. While most patients believe that tattoos are permanent, there is one way to successfully remove them: laser tattoo removal.

What is laser tattoo removal?

Laser tattoo removal is a specialized treatment available at Remington Laser Dermatology Centre in Calgary, AB. Drs. Todd and Kent Remington are providers who can use laser light to target tattoo ink in the skin and break it down, reducing its appearance treatment after treatment. With routine sessions, patients can fade their tattoo away and get rid of it—permanently.

How does laser tattoo removal work?

Laser light that penetrates into the skin will break down the ink used in the tattoo. The ink is then naturally absorbed by the body and skin and flushed out through the lymphatic system. This does not happen immediately. Instead, the process takes time and several treatment sessions to complete. Our professionals will help patients determine how long it can take to fully remove their tattoo. There are many factors that need to be taken into consideration, including the quality of the tattoo ink, the colors in the tattoo, and how long the tattoo has been in place.

Am I a candidate?

To determine candidacy for this and any other treatments at Remington Laser Dermatology Centre, patients in the community need to schedule a consultation with our providers for a full evaluation and to discuss their skincare goals.

Men and women who have experienced damage to their earlobes, either a tear or stretch, may want to consider working with a doctor at Remington Laser Dermatology Centre in Calgary, AB to discuss surgical repair. Earlobe repair is a common procedure performed by Drs. Todd and Kent Remington at our practice. This procedure is used for addressing torn or elongated earlobes. This may be caused by large, heavy earrings or even ear gauges that stretch the skin dramatically over time. The holes left behind from this type of jewelry cannot be improved any other way except with surgical earlobe repair.

What is surgical earlobe repair?

The team of Remington Laser Dermatology Centre believes in providing patients with surgical earlobe repair to help address large holes or tears that have an impact on the ear’s appearance. This may happen after patients have had gauges removed from their ears, or if they have had an earring gets caught or yanked to create a tear. The procedure not only fixes the appearance of the earlobe but can be used to strengthen it. This is called a cross-over earlobe repair procedure is one of the most effective ways to repair a full torn earlobe. While some minor scarring may exist after surgery, this is minor in comparison to the appearance of the earlobe after tearing or stretching.
