People get tattoos for many reasons, and while some want them to be as permanent as promised, others find just as many reasons to want a particular tattoo removed.

  • It has the name of someone with whom they are no longer involved
  • It was the result of a late-night mistake
  • It no longer represents a person’s identity or their views on life
  • It interferes with a job interview or promotion
  • It blocks the placement of a new tattoo
  • Time or age has altered the original design
  • And many others

Does Laser Tattoo Removal hurt?

Our laser tattoo removal process feels similar to getting a snap on the skin by a small rubber band. Though the process is not entirely pain-free, the discomfort is minimal and local anesthetic creams and cold air systems are available if desired.

How does Laser Tattoo Removal work exactly?

Lasers produce light at specific wavelengths that can be precisely adjusted by our experienced laser technicians. The tattoo ink is eliminated as a designated wavelength passes through the skin and is absorbed by the tattoo ink. This causes the ink to dissipate as small particulates that are then removed by the body’s own ingenious filtering system. This process also leaves the surrounding skin with no lasting effects.

Here is a video of someone right here in our office getting her first treatment:

Can Laser Tattoo Removal remove every Tattoo 100%?

One of the most important questions that people ask is if we can remove the tattoo completely. The answer is that, in most cases, over 95% of the tattoo will be gone. It is important to know that there are many different types of tattoo ink used throughout the world. These inks come from multiple sources and contain varying compounds. Since we cannot know which kind of tattoo ink was used or how deeply it was applied, it is impossible to predict the exact results of the tattoo removal process. That being said, we have an incredible success rate in removing tattoos created by professionals, homemade/amateur ones, plus traumatic and surgical tattoos. See our Results here [link to the Patient Results page discussed above].
Here is one example of the before and after results of laser tattoo removal:

How many treatments does the laser tattoo removal process take? This question that has no definitive answer due to variations in tattoo inks and techniques, but on average it takes about 8 to 10 treatments to remove a tattoo. Occasionally, stubborn tattoos may require up to 15 sessions to complete. Color tattoos may require more and some amateur tattoos will require less. Each tattoo removal treatment is spaced about 4 to 6 weeks apart.

So you can even remove color tattoos? For the most part, yes! Surprisingly dark blue and black inks are the easiest to remove. Red, orange, and purple tattoos also fade fairly well. The most difficult to remove are yellow, light blue and green ones, so they often take additional treatments to produce the desired fading. Given enough treatments, our laser tattoo removal program can remove almost all tattoos.

If you have a tattoo you would like removed, there is no need to continue carrying that part of your past everywhere you go. We love to see people use our services and leave after completing the treatments looking better, feeling better, having more confidence, and feeling free.
