Tattoo Removal: New Laser Method Reduces Time And Pain For Adrienne Bailon

Close

It's one of the trendiest, but most treacherous things you can do to your skin.

Tattoos can be a great way to express yourself. They can be super sexy and are always personal. But what happens when you end up regretting your ink?

The ultimate reminder of a bad decision gone wrong is a tattoo. Permanently inked on your skin, what once was a cool idea becomes a painful reminder of a choice you wish you never made!

And this good idea gone wrong couldn't be magnified more once you're in the public eye. Everyday gals like us aren't the only ones who suffer from tattoo remorse. Many celebrities do too.

Melanie Griffith is trying to get rid of her love tat for soon-to-be ex-husband Antonio Bandaras, and Angelina Jolie inked over her Billy Bob Thorton tat, replacing it with the names of her children.

Just ask TV personality and ex-girlfriend to Rob Kardashian, Adrienne Bailon. The star actually tattooed her ex's name on her rear end!

"I have my ex-boyfriend's name on my butt," the co-host of The Real talk show revealed.

Now this may be the ultimate show of love and devotion when the couple was together, but fast forward to their break-up and Bailon has a little bit of a problem five years later.

"It's been long enough to have this officially gone," the star said in humor to Extra, but definitely with a bit of frustration.

Thankfully, a new treatment is available to make the trials of un-inking easier. Dr. Brauer of the Laser and Skin Surgery Center in New York City is helping Bailon beat her boyfriend's name off her bum.

Using the new PicoSure laser, tattoos don't have to be on your skin for good anymore.

"This is the first major breakthrough in laser tattoo removal in the last twenty years," Dr. Brauer told NBC. What to expect? Faster removal. PicoSure delivers short bursts of energy in a trillionth of a second! "You're actually shattering the tattoo particle," the expert said.

And another great benefit to the new treatment is less pain! A numbing cream and local anesthesia injected into the tattoo sight makes the process much easier. The PicoSure laser beam then goes over your unwanted ink.

Have a tat like Adrienne's? Dr. Brainer says it'll likely take around 5 treatments to make it disappear. This was sure music to Bailon's ears.

"It won't be something that will damage my skin and that I'll be scarred for life with," Bailon said with relief.
