If you have a tattoo that you want removed, then laser tattoo removal is for you. The laser works on the ink of the tattoo to get the color out. The laser has different wavelengths that work on multicolored tattoos. It takes 3-6 sessions for tattoos to fade – each tattoo is different.

The laser procedure takes anywhere from 10 mins to 1 hour depending on the areas treated. Generally no anesthesia is used.

What To Expect After Surgery

There may be bleeding and pigment changes around the area treated. You will need to keep the area dry for 24 hours and out of direct sunlight for 1 week.

Dear Dr. Pousti,

I just wanted to say, “Thank you”, for all that you have done for me on getting my tattoos removed. I’ve been trying hard to get my tattoos off before my son can recognize them. But over the last 5 years I’ve only have accomplished removing 2 of the 4 I have. I hoping when my financial situation stabilizes that I will once again start up the process of removing the the next 2 tattoos so that I can get them removed before my remembers me having them.

I have been passing the word around to friends and family and co-workers about your business and the process of the tattoo removal. I just recently have added a large advertisement to the back window of my truck to help advertise for you. It says “TATTOO REMOVAL WWW.POUSTI.COM (619) 466-8851”. So if you get a increase of business or people saying they saw an advertisement on a car on the freeway, That’s me. I drive about 25,000 miles a year, 75-80 miles a day, about 500 miles a week. from Lakeside to Chula Vista, to the San Diego Zoo where I work 40 hours a week, back to Chula Vista then to Lakeside, all in one day.
It’s the least I can do.

Thanks again so much.

Lakeside, California
