Having tattoos can help you increase feelings of confidence and improve your self-image. For some people, tattoos may even be an expression of how they feel on the outside – allowing you to express your identity. Often though, people choose to get rid of tattoos due to poor workmanship, faded ink, changed tastes, social perception, job requirements, to get over a relationship, to start a family, or simply because they want something new.
Phoenix plastic surgeon Dr. Jude LaBarbera is an expert in removing tattoos quickly and painlessly, so you can go back to living the life you want. Dr. LaBarbera uses advanced laser equipment to break down tattoo ink particles without incisions or punctures, and with minimal downtime after the session is complete. Through this treatment, the surgeon has helped countless patients in Phoenix and surrounding New Jersey areas rediscover their sense of identity.


Laser tattoo removal is one of the most popular methods used for removing tattoos and is highly effective in most cases. It works by targeting the ink particles in your skin with pulses of light energy from a specialized laser device. The light energy breaks down the ink particles into smaller fragments, which are then absorbed by your body’s natural healing process and eliminated over time. This process is relatively quick, depending on the size of your tattoo and the number of treatments required to achieve optimal results.


There are many benefits to choosing laser tattoo removal over other methods such as dermabrasion, chemical peels, or topical creams:

  • It is significantly less painful than other methods as it only requires a topical numbing agent prior to treatment and no downtime afterward.
  • Laser tattoo removal can remove tattoos faster than other methods because it targets only the ink particles while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
  • Can be used to fade existing tattoos to make room for new ones without completely removing them altogether!
