Laser Tattoo Removal
Dr. Shaw uses the newest and fastest laser technology in Richmond known as the Discovery Pico Laser to safely and quickly remove unwanted tattoos.
The laser works by breaking up the ink in the tattoo into tiny fragments which are then naturally cleared by your body’s immune system. This gradually fades the image until it disappears or is unnoticeable. The unique properties of the laser target the ink colors without harming your body’s natural pigments.
Up to 8 Sessions
Performed in Office and Takes 2-5 Minutes
Most patients achieve permamnent ink clearance in less than 8 sessions.
This is because Pico Laser technology is 100 times faster than conventional Q Switch tattoo lasers. This allows for extremely rapid clearance of tattoo ink, as well as shorter treatment times.
On average, patients get complete clearance in half the sessions of conventional tattoo lasers.
That means less time, less pain, and better results.

Is it Painful?
For those particularly sensitive to pain, we can also use a topical cream or injectable anesthetic to numb the treatment area.
What is Recovery Like? Is There Downtime or Medication?
We will provide a post-treatment plan that includes how to care for the treated area with medical grade topical ointments to promote fast and comfortable healing. While the skin heals, it will feel similar to a bad sunburn, but there is no required downtime.
