For those who have changed their minds about the symbolism, appearance, or content of a tattoo, the YAG laser, available at Primera, is the gold standard of tattoo removal without scarring. The light energy emitted from this laser passes into the skin and is absorbed by the ink of the tattoo. As a result, the tattoo ink breaks into tiny particles that are then removed by the body’s natural filtering system. Dr. Edward J. Gross performs laser tattoo removal for patients from Orlando and other parts of Florida.
Our Candela® Alex TriVantage (ATV) laser uses proven safe technology with 532, 755, and 1064 nm wavelengths. The YAG laser effectively treats various types of tattoos, including:
Dr. Gross also removes brown spots (also known as pigmented lesions) with the YAG laser.
Laser Tattoo Removal With a Facial Aesthetic Specialist
The laser delivers short, rapid, high-intensity pulses of light with maximum capability for destruction of melanin and pigment targets. The combination of the short wavelength and rapid light pulses maximizes our ability to treat pigmented areas while preserving surrounding skin. The laser works on a great variety of inks in a range of colors, with the exception of yellow, which in many cases is difficult to erase completely. While experiences vary, 4 to 6 treatments are typically needed for desired results.
In most cases, only 1 to 2 YAG laser treatments are required for optimal results in correcting brown spots. Other options for brown spots or patches, such as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), are also effective but may require more treatments to achieve the desired results.
Laser Tattoo Removal Cost
While the number of treatments required varies with the size and coloring of each tattoo, each laser tattoo removal treatment at our Orlando-area practice typically costs $495.

Most tattoos require multiple treatments, depending on the amount, type, and color of ink used and the depth of the ink in the skin. In many cases, we can diminish the appearance of the tattoo considerably.
Treatment of brown spots may produce temporary darkened or gray areas at the treatment sites. This may last from a few days to a week.
“The YAG laser (Candela ATV) is one of the most advanced lasers available for treatment of tattoos, brown areas of pigment such as age spots, and specific birthmarks.”
