Many of us have made decisions that we come to regret, including getting certain tattoos. We might be fond of a particular design, at first, but come to dislike it over the years. Thankfully, your unwanted or outdated tattoo does not need to be permanent. At the Virginia Center for Plastic Surgery, our team can fade away your unwanted ink with tattoo removal for men in Northern Virginia and Alexandria.

Why Men Pursue Laser Tattoo Removal
Many of our male clients in Alexandria and Northern Virginia come to us seeking tattoo removal because their tattoo(s):
- Represent a past relationship
- Are unprofessional or inappropriate
- Affect their ability to create positive first impressions
- Are in an undesirable location
- Have faded or blurred and no longer look attractive
- Were obtained on an impulse or whim
- Were obtained during their youth or young adulthood and no longer represent who they are today
If you relate to any of these factors and wish to remove your tattoo through a laser procedure, Dr. Desman can explain the treatment in more detail and answer questions.
The Laser Tattoo Removal Process
Laser tattoo removal works through the application of light from our Alma Harmony XL Pro device. The light is emitted at a certain wavelength which helps target the dark pigments of tattoo ink. It breaks these pigments down into tiny particles, which are then absorbed by your body and passed naturally through your body’s waste. Our laser apparatus can remove a variety of tattoo colors without harming the surrounding skin.
The procedure itself is painless and feels similar to a snapping rubber band against your skin. However, our team can provide you with a topical anesthetic to help ease your discomfort. The length of each session will depend on the size of the tattoo and complexity of the tattoo. Depending on the size, depth, and extent of your tattoo, you may be required to come in for follow-up sessions.
Tattoo removal will not be able to permanently remove your tattoo. Rather, it will gradually fade away your ink. The amount of fading will depend on the extent of your tattoo and how many sessions you opt for. We normally recommend three to four laser hair removal sessions for our male patients in Northern Virginia and Alexandria, each spaced about two months apart, but your treatment process can vary based on your needs. During your initial consultation with our expert medical team, we will be able to assess your tattoo and create a removal strategy that best suits your circumstances.
