Tattoos can be funny old things. Sometimes you love them and sometimes you very quickly hate them. For instance, you may have a tattoo with the name or an image around your loved one and so it makes you happy.Very many people have tattoos in this day and age, but unfortunately, they can become a matter of regret in some instances. Today they can be removed with a laser.

Then again you may go out for a great lads’ or girls’ night out, have a couple of drinks too many, and then decide that it would be a great idea to have a certain tattoo. So, you go to the tattoo artist and he (it’s usually a “he” but could also be “she”) carries out the tattoo for you. Off you go for another drink or three, and wind your way home at four in the morning – if you can find it!

Oh Nooooo!!!

Then you can wake up the next morning and look at your arm, or wherever, and think “Oh noooooo!!!!”. But it’s too late now.

Of course, another situation is where you have the name of your lover tattooed somewhere, which is all hunky dory. Until with the passage of time the relationship breaks down (it happens) and then you are stuck with somebody that you just want to get rid of! So, there you are walking around trying to hide this name from everybody else. Because you can’t get rid of it. Or at least, until recently you couldn’t.

But today, at Silicon Valley Aesthetic Dermatology, we have the answer for you with laser tattoo removal in San Mateo. Well, strictly speaking, not laser tattoo removal in San Mateo, but in Foster City which is only just down the road. If you want to get rid of that depressing tattoo, it’s only a few minutes’ drive.

We use lasers for a number of different procedures involving skin care. They can be used to remove unwanted hair, for example, which is something that many people have. Girls may want to remove the hair from under their arms and on their legs, for instance, and we can do that with one of our specialist lasers.

Laser tattoo removal in San Mateo, and elsewhere in the Bay Area, is something that we are being asked for more and more these days. The laser will actually remove just the top layers of skin which will get rid of the tattoo and leave you with a bare arm / chest / neck / or wherever it was that you didn’t want it to be seen.

If laser tattoo removal is something that you would like to consider, just make an appointment for a free consultation with one of our specialists who will be able to advise you of your options.
