Jenny came into our office, a bit nervous for her first treatment but with an idea to film an interview before and after to help share her experience. We’re very grateful for the idea and time she gave to help make this video. Her goal is full removal, which averages 10-12 treatments over about a 3 year period.

The artist who did her sleeve (which is not being removed) that she mentions is April Cornell.

The white “frosting” that appears immediately after the the laser is water vapor, a byproduct of the laser tattoo removal treatment. Within 10 minutes, this fades and is not a burn or blister.

In the left hand is a hose that’s connected to a cryo-chiller, a device that blows extremely cold air onto the skin before and during a treatment to help reduce any short-term swelling, a common side effect. It is not a vacuum.

What you see here was filmed in real time, showing just how fast tattoo removal treatments are.
