Tattoo Removal in Lethbridge


We can all agree that some tattoos are mistakes. If you’re ready to get rid of an embarrassing or just plain ugly tattoo from y9our past, we’ve got the laser tattoo removal for you!

Our tattoo removal treatments erase unwanted ink more effectively than every before, successfully removing difficult ink colors as well as previously treated tattoos.

βœ” Fewer treatments

βœ” Faster recovery time

βœ” Greater results

This works effectively on:

πŸ‘‰ Multicolored tattoos, including blues and greens

πŸ‘‰ Hard-to-remove black ink

πŸ‘‰ Stubborn, previously treated tattoos

Now, the word “laser” might sound harsh to some, but it is actually incredibly quick and safe process. Here’s how it works:

To put it simply, a highly concentrated pulse of heat energy penetrates the skin so fast that ink underneath is shattered by the surrounding skin isn’t burnt. The smaller ink particles are then naturally absorbed and removed by the body. Tattoo laser removal is the most effective option available. Instead of wasting money on topical creams, lotions, and body scrubs that don’t work, save your money and have it done right the first time.

This procedure is safe and effective for ALL Fitzpatrick skin types. The length of time it takes will depend on a few different things, including size, ink color, and the location on your body. But no matter what, one thing is for certain β€” it doesn’t take nearly as long as getting a tattoo! Instead of sitting in a chair for hours, laser tattoo removal sessions only take about 20-minutes (on average). Larger designs, complex colors, and ink on more sensitive parts of the body will add a few minutes, but you’ll typically be in and out in an hour. Yes, it’s that quick! A few more sessions over the next several months, and you’ll be almost completely tat-free.

Before and After Dermal Fillers for Tear Trough Correction

Tear Trough

Tear trough deformity is a major concern in a lot of individuals seeking periorbital rejuvenation. A prominent tear trough deformity is characterized by a sunken appearance of the eye that results in the casting of a dark shadow over the lower eyelid, giving the patient a fatigued appearance despite adequate rest.

Tear trough injections are one of the most challenging areas to treat safely and well with dermal filler.

Before Dr. Secretan performs nonsurgical treatment for tear trough correction, it’s important for him to evaluate the following factors:

βœ” Skin quality. Patients with thick, smooth skin will have better results than those with thin extremely wrinkled skin.

βœ” Definition of the hollow, as a more defined hollow is more amenable to fillers.

βœ” The orbital fat pads. Larger fat pads are more difficult to correct due to β€˜puffiness’ caused by the injection.

βœ” The color of the overlying skin. The filler may improve shadowing but will not improve dark pigmentation.

The volume injected varies from patient to patient and overcorrection should be avoided.

Overcorrection, too superficial injections, and choice of an inappropriate filler may lead to unacceptable aesthetic results.

We want you to love your injectables. Our understanding of facial anatomy helps us to determine where to and where not to inject. And that means better results for YOU! At Lethbridge Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics, we’re committed to providing you with the best.

Do you have any questions? Or perhaps you’re ready to book a consultation! Our approach to treatment is a collaborative effort with our patients and our goal is for you to feel complete in your education and confident in your decision, while providing the highest quality of care with the most effective, proven technique available. Our providers are highly skilled and continually educated on the latest cosmetic and surgical techniques. Contact us!
