Unwanted Tattoos

With the right treatment system and skilled performance, tattoos can quickly become a thing of the past.

Unwanted tattoos can be troubling to deal with. Unwanted ink can serve as a nagging reminder of a bad decision and impede our future job prospects. Most traditional tattoo removal systems are often painful and result in residual scarring. However, with the right treatment system and skilled performance, tattoos can quickly become a thing of the past. Travis Shaw, MD is proud to provide the people of Richmond, Virginia with the precise Quanta Discovery Pico tattoo removal system.

Struggling With Unwanted Tattoos?

Removing unwanted tattoos can be painful. However, the Quanta Discovery Pico has been specifically engineered to deliver treatment without unnecessary pain or blistering. Our laser uses forced air to provide cooling during the procedure to maximize your comfort. Every tattoo is unique and requires a personalized approach. This is why Dr. Shaw takes the time to provide consultation and supervise every tattoo removal procedure.

Unwanted Tattoo Removal With Quanta Discovery Pico

Dr. Shaw’s preferred method of tattoo removal is the Quanta Discovery Pico. This powerful picosecond Nd:YAG laser uses a photoacoustic effect to break up tattoo ink and deliver fast-acting results. After the ink fragments are broken up, they are then naturally cleared by your body’s immune system. This gradually fades the image until it disappears or is rendered unnoticeable. The unique properties of the laser target the ink colors without harming your body’s natural pigments.

Quanta Discovery Pico Results

Quanta tattoo removal technology is 100 times faster than conventional Q Switch tattoo lasers. This power and precision allows for extremely rapid clearance of tattoo ink in a much shorter session period. On average, patients get complete clearance in half the sessions of conventional tattoo lasers. This means less time, less pain, and better results.
