What is Tattoo Removal?
Tattoo removal is the process of dissolving a tattoo’s ink safely within the skin to make it disappear. Our cosmetic tattoo removal procedure involves the use of a laser treatment to make changes to your prior ink. At Wilmington Dermatology Center, we trust the state-of-the-art PiQo4 laser (also known as a PicoLaser, or Pico-based laser)!
Our PiQo4 laser is the gold standard in laser tattoo removal: it combines two cutting-edge laser speed technologies to allow for more color clearance in a faster time. This means better removal, fewer sessions, and less “ghosting” (residual images) than with other systems.

How Does Laser Tattoo
Our PiQo4 laser technology simultaneously targets both large and small tattoo particles, breaking them into tiny molecules that are naturally removed by your body’s immune system.
This is a safe tattoo removal solution. The laser targets only the ink, so it won’t harm the surrounding skin, and because the PiQo4 doesn’t use heat, it’s equally safe for lighter or darker skin tones. It’s also a truly effective solution: the PiQo4 is versatile yet precise, able to break up any ink color and particle size, on any skin type, for comprehensive color clearance and fast results.
Prior to Treatment
Before treatment begins, we’ll clean and prep the treatment areas. We also offer topical numbing cream to make you more comfortable during the procedure.
We offer topical numbing cream to make you more comfortable during the procedure. You will then hear the laser loudly fire, audible popping sounds, and feel heat over the general area of the skin. The treated area will feel as if it were sunburned. Some may blister and lesions will look darker before the skin heals and the lesion improves. Your provider will give you guidelines for before and after care.
After Treatment & Results
All Tattoo removal treatments typically consist of a series of anywhere from 2-10 sessions, scheduled 6-8 weeks apart, until the desired removal outcome is met. The number of treatments will depend on the kind of ink and color used, as well as the amount of coverage. Your provider can determine how long to wait between appointments based on progress made and your skin type.
