Quanta Aesthetic Lasers are some of the best on the market approved for laser tattoo removal. At Webb Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and Medical Spa we are seeing amazing results of tattoo removal with these lasers. If you are in the Murfreesboro area or the Greater Nashville area and are having second thoughts about your ink come to see us for removal. INK is not something you have to live with forever anymore! We have lasers to treat sun/ dark spots, tattoo removal, laser hair removal, and laser skin resurfacing.


How does the laser remove a tattoo?

The laser works by producing highly concentrated pulses of laser energy that pass through the top layers of the skin and are selectively absorbed by the tattoo pigment, breaking the ink into tiny particles. The body?s lymphatic system then removes the residual ink particles, causing the tattoo to fade or disappear completely.

How does the Quanta Laser Work?

The laser wavelengths can be selected to target a wide range of tattoo ink color, giving you maximum flexibility to treat a variety of tattoos with excellent results in as little as a few treatments. Adjustable spot sizes let you treat the smallest and biggest areas with ease and efficiency. Black, red, dark blue and dark orange respond the best, requiring fewer treatments for complete clearing. Harder to treat colors such as yellow, green and purple may require additional treatments to achieve the same clearing. But with time, nearly all tattoos can be removed using our technology.

Do laser tattoo removal treatments hurt?

Stinging, like the snap of a rubber band on the skin, can be expected with standard treatment. If you wish, numbing cream or injections of lidocaine can be provided. Post treatment sensations are similar to a mild feeling of sunburn. Post-operatively, the tattoo reacts similarly to when it was originally applied into the skin, light bleeding, scabbing, and soreness can be expected. Our staff will educate you on how to safely manage the wound by using effective skin ointments, and sterile bandages. You must take care of your treated tattoo, as directed by our physicians, to obtain the best result for a successful removal. Most treatments do not require anesthetics, though some patients feel more comfortable with local numbing agents.

How many laser treatments are required to remove a tattoo?

The results and appearance of the tattoo vary from patient to patient. After each treatment session you will see the tattoo become lighter. Due to the various types of the inks used in tattooing, the results and the number of treatments may vary. Typically, multiple treatments will be required and are scheduled 4 to 8 weeks apart. Depending on the size and location of the tattoo, each treatment will take about 10-20 minutes. On average, a tattoo can be removed in 5 to 10 sessions depending on the factors mentioned above. It is our goal to remove your tattoo in a medically sound and safe manner. We tailor each treatment session to minimize the risk of scarring and undesirable skin-pigment changes while maximizing your results.

Real Patients & Their Stories

I had considered breast augmentation for many years. Breastfeeding 4 children had taken its toll. Dr. Webb's down to earth, one on one approach convinced me to go ahead and have it done. He tailored the surgery to my specific needs and the outcome was fantastic. Every aspect about my experience was top notch, from the care and treatment from Dr. Webb, to his personable staff who were always friendly. I was so pleased with my experience that Dr. Webb will be my first choice for any procedures that I may have in the future. - CMW *
Every effort was made by Dr. Webb to ensure that I knew everything there was to know about my procedure. Dr. Webb and his staff were available to me any time I had a question or a concern. Dr. Webb's staff was both courteous and meticulous in catering to my needs and concerns. My surgery went very well. I am now two weeks into my recovery and I am thrilled with my results already. Every day I see improvement and get more and more excited about my new shape. I felt very confident in Dr. Webb's ability; he is a truly talented surgeon. The information that I was given prior to my surgery helped everything go so smoothly, everything that Dr. Webb said I would experience was true to form. My pain was managed very well and I really expected to have a lot more discomfort than I actually experienced. I would only recommend Dr. Webb to anyone who wishes to have a surgical procedure carried out to PERFECTION! - KM *
I'm a young mom of 2 girls. Having kids left me with a body that made me very unhappy. I decided it was time for a change. Not knowing ANYTHING at all about plastic surgery I was unsure but called anyways to set up an appointment. Going in I was very scared and didn't know what to expect, but when I got there I was greeted by a very friendly staff. Dr. Webb and I started my consult and we talked for about an hour and thirty mins. He explained everything possible and what he thought I needed. He went into full detail of before, during, and after the procedure. I can't explain how comfortable I felt talking to him and the staff. I knew that day that I didn't need to look any longer. He was the one who was going to do my surgery! I had a tummy tuck and lipo, everything went like he said and now (2 months later) I look and feel like a 24 year old should. Dr. Webb and his staff are amazing, I can't thank them enough! I can't wait until summertime and I haven't been able to say that in a LONG time! Again THANK-YOU, you have helped start a whole new chapter in my life. - SBH *
From pre-op to post operative care, Dr. Webb and his team have been there every step of the way. I am so thrilled with the care & my results. 4 months post surgery, I have been able to exercise & lost 17 lbs and my breast are now a 36D! I can go into a store and actually find clothes that "fit" me and I don't have to struggle into a bathing suit anymore! From the added weight on my chest I used to have constant neck, back, & knee pain and now it's gone. Even the permanent bra marks that I had on my back & shoulders are beginning to fade. The biggest drawback to this surgery? I lost my golf swing and had to take lessons to get my swing back! Thank you Dr. Webb & the entire staff at Nirvana for giving me my life back! The "Girls" and I thank you from the bottom of my heart- they are PERFECT! - GW *
