Our laser tech Jonathan Gardner on laser tattoo removal in Charleston SC


Plastic Surgeon in Charleston, SCWe are pleased to have one of South Carolina’s best laser technicians, Jonathan Gardner, performing laser tattoo removal here in Charleston as part of the Port City Plastic Surgery team. His nearly two decades performing laser treatments with various types and brands of laser has given him the experience and know-how necessary to consistently give our Charleston, SC patients the results they are seeking.

Jonathan is a South Carolina native, got his B.A. at Elon University and still calls South Carolina home. He has two boys ages 6 and 11, and his wife owns a dance studio. In his free time, when he’s not cheering on his boys from the sidelines of a basketball court or football field, he’s helping his wife with her business. “We are definitely a busy, active household,” says Jonathan.

At work, Jonathan uses various lasers to treat patients with rosacea and hyperpigmentation, or brown spots from the sun. “Folks in the Charleston area love the outdoors and the beach, and spend a lot of time in the sun,” says Gardner. “Unfortunately, this can take a toll on the skin. Laser is a great way to give the skin a more youthful texture and look.”

The majority of Gardner’s time is spent performing laser tattoo removal. “Removing a tattoo completely can take multiple visits,” he says, “so I do get to know these patients pretty well. It’s great to have that ongoing relationship and conversations with someone, and rewarding to help them get to their final result. That’s what it’s all about.”
