FREQUENTLY ASKED TATTOO REMOVAL QUESTIONS
1How Are Tattoos Removed?Q-Switched ND:Yag and PicoSure lasers are used to target the pigment in tattoo ink that resides below the skins surface and fragment it. Your body’s natural immune system will then absorb, break down and dispose of the pigment over a period of time.
2How Much Does Tattoo Removal Cost?A flat rate of $200 per treatment, not per square inch, not per color, no bias on which laser is used, including multiple tattoos. Packages are available at a discount, more info here.
3Is Laser Tattoo Removal Painful?Each person perceives pain differently, so there is no definitive answer. There will be some mild discomfort that is often associated with a hot rubber band being snapped on the skin. A cryo chiller is used to help reduce swelling and alleviate discomfort during the tattoo removal treatment.
4How Many Treatments Are Needed?The age, location and quality of the tattoo and colors used, combined with your body’s ability to dispose of the ink will determine the total number of treatments needed. We will discuss this in depth with you during an initial consult to help establish realistic expectations.
5Can My Tattoo Be Completely Removed?Because of the number of variables with how tattoos are done, tattoo pigment differences and how your immune system responds to laser tattoo removal treatment, combined with color and tattoo placement it’s impossible to give a blanket statement of yes or no. We’ll discuss during an initial consult what your goals are and how to achieve them.
6Can Only a Portion of My Tattoo be Removed?Yes. Often times there is a portion of a tattoo that you would like removed and / or covered, and we can target just those portions of your tattoo.
7What’s Involved With Aftercare?Complete aftercare will be given at the time of removal, including a take home care sheet.
