Frequently Asked Questions

How does laser tattoo removal work?

 

Tattoo removal works based on our bodies immune system. The tattoo ink is broken up into particles and flushed out of our system by macrophages (which are like little pac men eating away at the ink.)


We begin each individual's treatment plan with a free consultation. This is absolutley necessary because certain prescriptions, over the counter medications and other medical conditions can seriously interfere with thte laser tattoo removal and cause it to be unsafe for some individuals.

 

After this no-fee consultation, if laser tattoo removal is determined to be an appropriate method, we will lay out a plan specifically targeted for your individuale needs and goals. You will find that our prices are more reasonable than our competitors, and our plans are uniquely personalized, and that our equipment is state of the art.

Does it hurt?

Laser pulses feel similar to being snapped by a rubber bank. Prior to your treatment, topical
numbing creams can be used.

How many treatments are required?

Professional tattoos will need 6 – 8 treatments generally spaced 6 – 8 weeks apart to allow
the body to remove the ink. Homemade tattoos usually take less treatments since the ink
is more superficial. We can also lighten the tattoo only, which will require less treatments.

How do I take care of my skin after the treatment?

A. The area is kept clean and an anti-bacterial ointment will need to applied. You may resume
all normal activities except sun tanning during the healing process.
