While tattoos are meant to be permanent, you don’t need to live with one that no longer suits you. Advanced medical laser technology makes it easier than ever to get rid of unwanted tattoos of practically any size and color.
Which colors are easiest to treat?
Black, red, dark orange, and dark blue inks are usually easier to remove than green, purple, brown, light orange, and light blue. More sessions may be required for certain colors.
How is laser tattoo removal performed?
The skin may be numbed with a topical numbing cream, applied about an hour in advance. Once the skin is numb, the laser handpiece is used to slowly trace over the tattoo as quick pulses of laser energy are released. The treatment time varies with the size of the tattoo, colors, and type of pigment used, but typically ranges from 15 minutes to an hour.
What does laser tattoo removal feel like?
Patients usually say the pulse of the laser feels like a rubber band snap, ranging from mild to intense. Discomfort depends on the location of the tattoo and individual pain tolerance.
How much does laser tattoo removal cost?
Prices for laser tattoo removal are determined during the initial consultation and are based upon several factors, which include:
- Treatment area
- Tattoo size
- Tattoo colors
- Pigment type
Our intention is to offer the best result possible with any of our aesthetic skin treatments. Because there is so much variability among tattoos, we have carefully designed pricing packages that include up to 10 treatments. This pricing system also ensures that our patients are fully aware of their treatment costs up front.
How many treatments will I need?
Depending on the size, colors, and intensity of the tattoo being treated, a series of treatments is usually required for optimal results. Our tattoo removal packages allow for up to 10 treatments, which is sufficient for most tattoos.
How long do I have to wait between treatments?
In order to avoid discoloration and scarring, and give your body enough time to heal properly, tattoo removal treatments should be spaced about 4 to 6 weeks apart.
