Tattoo Removal in Bowling Green, KY

Tattoos can often be an expression of who you are.  But if your older tattoo feels more like a burden than a symbol of your personality, it might be time for laser tattoo removal at MDCosmedX Laser & Lipo Center.

At our Bowling Green medical spa, we use the Alma Harmony XL Pro laser to treat and minimize the appearance of older tattoos.  This gold standard tattoo removal technology uses dual wavelengths to penetrate the dermis and target darker pigment in the skin. The wavelengths work to break down the pigment, which is then absorbed by the body.  With consistent treatments, the Alma Harmony XL Pro can minimize the appearance of tattoos with multiple colored pigments.

What Happens During the Treatment?

Before your laser tattoo removal, you’ll meet with your MDCosmedX practitioner to determine how many treatments you’ll need to see your ideal results.  Additionally, you’ll be provided an ideal treatment schedule for removing your tattoo.  As a general rule of thumb, the older the tattoo, the more laser treatments you may need to see fading.

The Alma Harmony XL Pro laser uses a cooling handpiece to deliver laser heat energy to the surface of the skin.  The heat penetrates the dermis to target and break down the pigment within the skin.  Over time and with consistent treatments, the body will absorb the pigments.  This results in the tattoo fading from the skin.

Results vary depending on the size, age, and color of the tattoo that’s being treated.  Most patients need about six to eight laser tattoo treatments, scheduled four weeks apart.

The Alma Harmony XL Pro laser comes with a cooling device that mitigates any heat associated with the treatment.  For this reason, patients are often comfortable during the procedure, making our laser tattoo removal treatment the go-to procedure for individuals in the Bowling Green area.
