Are you looking to part ways with a tattoo that has lost its charm or serves as a reminder of a fleeting moment?

With advancements in technology, removing unwanted tattoos has become more efficient and effective than ever. Our state-of-the-art enlighten™ laser tattoo removal system offers a cutting-edge solution for those looking to erase the past and make room for new beginnings.

Procedure & Effectiveness of Laser Tattoo Removal

Embarking on your laser tattoo removal journey with us means experiencing a combination of advanced technology and expert care. Here’s what you can expect from the procedure:

  • Initial Consultation: We begin with a comprehensive assessment of your tattoo, discussing your medical history and expected outcomes.
  • Customized Treatment Plan: Each tattoo is unique, so we tailor our approach to suit the specifics of your ink, including its size, color, and location.
  • The Removal Session: During the session, our state-of-the-art enlighten™ laser targets the tattoo ink with precision. This process might cause discomfort, akin to the snap of a rubber band against the skin, but it is generally well-tolerated.
  • Post-Session Care: Immediately after the session, you may notice redness, bruising and swelling, which are normal responses and typically subside within a few days. There is also a risk of blistering of the treated skin, which usually occurs within 24 hours of treatment and resolves within a week.

FAQs: Everything You Need to Know About Laser Tattoo Removal

Our comprehensive FAQ section addresses common questions about the laser tattoo removal process, from pain management to session frequency. We’re committed to providing clear, informative answers to help you feel confident and informed.

What is Laser Tattoo Removal?

Laser tattoo removal is a safe and effective procedure to remove unwanted tattoos. Using advanced laser technology, it breaks down the ink particles in the skin, which are then naturally eliminated by the body. This process significantly fades or completely removes the tattoo.

How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

The process involves using a laser to send short, intense pulses of light into the tattoo ink. These pulses break the ink into smaller fragments, which the body’s immune system then removes. The laser selectively targets the ink, ensuring the surrounding skin remains unharmed.

Does Laser Tattoo Removal Hurt?

While pain tolerance varies, most clients describe the sensation as similar to the snap of a rubber band against the skin. We take measures to minimize discomfort, and the procedure is generally well-tolerated.

What Can I Expect with Laser Tattoo Removal Aftercare?

Post-treatment care is crucial for optimal results and quick healing. This includes keeping the area clean and dry, applying Aquaphor, avoiding sun exposure, and following specific instructions provided by your specialist.

How Much Does Laser Tattoo Removal Cost?

The cost of laser tattoo removal depends on the size of the tattoo. During your consultation, we will provide a detailed estimate based on your specific needs. Pricing starts at $200 per treatment.

How Many Sessions Will I Need for Laser Tattoo Removal?

The number of sessions varies depending on the tattoo’s location on your body, ink colors, age and your body’s response. Typically, it requires multiple sessions spaced about 2 months apart for the best results.

What is Pico Laser Tattoo Removal?

Pico laser tattoo removal utilizes the latest technology with ultra-short picosecond pulses. These pulses break down ink particles more effectively and can lead to fewer treatment sessions compared to traditional laser removal methods.

What Results Can I Expect from Laser Tattoo Removal?

Results vary, but most clients see a significant fading of the tattoo, often leading to complete removal. Our gallery of before and after photos showcases various success stories.

Is Laser Tattoo Removal Safe?

Yes, when performed by a qualified specialist, laser tattoo removal is a safe procedure. Our team uses FDA-approved laser technology and follows strict safety protocols to ensure the best outcomes with minimal risks.
