About Tattoo Removal
Tattoos can be a great form of expression and individuality. However, some patients in the Flowood and Jackson, MS areas may end up regretting their decision or realize they're unhappy with the final outcome of their body art. At The Face & Body Center, our team can assess the size and ink of your tattoo and perform laser removal treatments to greatly reduce and even remove its appearance altogether. If you are ready to be free of your past body art and have a clean slate, then we invite you to schedule a consultation with us and set up your treatment plan today.
You will be the best candidate for laser tattoo removal if:
- You have unwanted body art you would like to have removed
- Your tattoo ink is not fresh, as new tattoos will be harder to remove
- You have a small, simple design (more intricate or larger tattoos are more difficult)
- You are in overall good health
- You have realistic expectations for your outcome
"Awesome Experince - After visiting just about every Surgeon in MS and LA, I saw Dr. Davidson, I knew right then he was my pick. In October 2016 I went in to the office and he drained my 450 each breast saline implants. No pain so simple, sent me home and said come back in 6 weeks. Mind you I still had the bags in. Thought this would be hard really never knew they were there. I had some pre-cancerous spots..."- A. / RealSelf / Jun 06, 2018
"Dr.Barraza and staff were beyond amazing! From my first consultation to my final post op. They always seemed generally concerned for me and my well being throughout my entire surgical process. I waited years for a breast reduction and could have never imagined how great my results could be. These results have literally changed my life. I should have done it a long time. He has done the same procedure on myself, my mother and my sister. We will never use any other plastic surgeon. I recommend him to anyone and everyone. He and his staff are so caring and sweet and you can tell he takes pride in his work!"- N.L. / Google / Jun 14, 2019
"Septoplasty/rhinoplasty: I’m 3 days post op and already very pleased with my results. - January 2019 I was in a pretty bad car accident. Airbags didn’t deploy, so nose met steering wheel! I had two fractures in the nasal bone and my left side cartilage was pushed in, forming a “dent” on the outside of my nose. Fast forward a few months, I met with dr Adrian Smith to discuss putting my nose “back to normal”. He addressed all of my concerns and his demeanor just put me at ease about the whole situation. I’m 3 days post op and already very pleased with my results."- R. / RealSelf / May 03, 2019
"Dr Manisundaram and his staff is the best"- H.N. / Google / May 02, 2019
"I went in today for my surgical consult and I was quite surprised how wonderful the facility was. It was professional but also homely. From the very beginning, the front desk staff was very friendly. Everyone I met was kind and in good spirits. They all had a great attitude. They laughed a lot which means they have a great sense of humor. I’m very nervous about my procedure but as soon as I met Dr. Smith and his staff, I was completely at ease. He explained everything thoroughly and answered all of my questions. He gave me plenty of time to ask them, too. He didn’t push me out the door. I was well-informed about the procedure, he listened to exactly what I wanted, and he was confident in his abilities to give me what I desire. Upon request, I looked through a picture portfolio of his work and I was very impressed. The young lady came in and photographed me (before pictures, I suppose) and I actually laughed most of the time. Taking my clothes off in front of strangers makes me very nervous, especially with my condition. But I laughed, she laughed with me, but still it was a very comfortable and professional environment. I even had more questions while in the billing department, or the office that takes the payment for your procedures, and they phoned the nurse’s desk and sent me back to ask more questions. Not once did I feel like I was a burden or “just another patient.” I’m very much comfortable moving forward with this operation with Dr. Smith!"- Z.1. / Google / Apr 27, 2019
What to expect
During your laser treatment, one of our team members will clean the treated area beforehand and then pass the laser device over your skin. The light emitted from the Q-switched Alex TriVantage laser will target and break up the ink, eventually fading its appearance over time. Depending on the size and freshness of the tattoo, your treatment time will vary. We can offer a numbing cream to help soothe the discomfort, as this procedure will sting due to the heat of the laser. Afterward, you will leave with the area covered in a dressing until your next session. You can resume your normal activities right after.
Each case is different and will require a different number of treatment sessions to reach the full results. You should gradually see your tattoo diminish after each treatment as the ink begins to be absorbed. It will usually take a few weeks for you to see the final outcome after your last session. The results from laser tattoo removal should be long lasting.
