The Alex TriVantage is the most sophisticated technology in tattoo removal. Its state-of-the-art design allows it to remove tattoos of all colors on all skin types, helping individuals erase tattoos that they no longer desire to have.
The Alex TriVantage is a tattoo removal treatment that uses pulsating laser energy over the tattoo, breaking down tattoo ink so that it can be naturally absorbed into the body. Because it is designed to target only the ink in the tattoo, any surrounding skin is not affected during the laser procedure. Unlike many other tattoo removal procedures, the Alex TriVantage is noninvasive and safe, which maximizes results and reduces discomfort and scarring.
The AlexTriVantage’s pulsating laser action helps to minimize discomfort during treatment; however, a local anesthetic can be applied to alleviate any pain.
The procedure itself takes only a few minutes, but several sessions are generally needed, depending on the size, colors and location of the tattoo. Sessions are spaced out about six weeks apart in order to give the skin time to heal in between. Generally, at least six sessions are needed to fully remove the tattoo’s ink from the skin.
Tattoos no longer have to be permanent markings—there are tattoo removal options! During a free consultation, board certified dermatologist Dr. Behroozan will help determine if the Alex TriVantage will be a right fit for your tattoo removal plan. As an expert in tattoo removal, Dr. Behroozan will talk with you about what to expect during treatments as well as how many sessions may be required.

General overview of tattoo removal
Getting a tattoo can be one of the most exciting times in a person’s life but having a tattoo can also lead to regret. That is why there are tattoo removal procedures developed to eliminate or reduce the appearance of tattoos. The Dermatology Institute of Southern California offers the most sophisticated and effective tattoo removal procedure in its Alex TriVantage laser. This laser effectively removes tattoos of all sizes and colors, making it the first—if not the only—choice in tattoo removal treatment plans.
Tattoos are unique, and there can be tattoos that are placed in the skin using ink and there can be tattoos that occur due to trauma—such as dirt and debris being caught under the skin from a bicycle or motorcycle accident. Because every tattoo is different, every individual’s tattoo removal process is distinct and unlike any other person’s treatment. Some individuals may need only a few sessions while others require more.
The reason why treatments differ revolves around the tattoo’s makeup. First, some tattoos are evenly applied in the skin, making removal relatively straightforward. Other tattoos may have been placed deep into the skin, sometimes having more ink in some layers than in others. This unevenness makes tattoo removal more difficult.
Typically, darker colors such as black and red are easiest to remove and therefore require less sessions. Other colors such as green and orange are slightly more difficult to remove during tattoo removal and may require more sessions before full exclusion from the skin.
Additionally, the skin will most likely swell or become slightly agitated following the tattoo removal treatment. Individuals may opt for a cold compress to place on the treated site or may take antibiotics to avoid infection.
The Dermatology Institute of Southern California is excited about giving its patients the most advanced tattoo removal procedures that have real results. During your free consultation, board certified dermatologist Dr. Behroozan will discuss the effectiveness of the Alex TriVantage laser procedure to see if it is right for your tattoo removal plan.
