There are many reasons why you might want to get rid of a tattoo. Maybe the design is no longer in line with your life's goals or maybe you’re just not happy with it anymore. Whatever the reason, laser tattoo removal treatments can help you remove tattoos from any area of your body and at any time in your life.
Laser tattoo removal is safe for most people, with few exceptions. People with dark skin and tattoos in sensitive areas (such as the face) may be more likely to experience adverse effects from laser treatment.
If you have any doubt about whether or not your tattoo is safe for this treatment option, talk to a doctor first before making any decisions about what to do next.
How long does it take to remove a tattoo by laser?
This depends on the size and color of your tattoo. A small or light colored tattoo will likely require fewer treatments than one that is large and dark in color, which means you can expect to experience quicker results. You should also know that each session lasts about 30 minutes and we recommend scheduling at least three sessions per week for optimal results.
Laser tattoo removal works by breaking up the ink into tiny particles that are then naturally cleared out of the body by the lymphatic system. The laser beam is applied to the skin, targeting the ink in your tattoo.
It’s important to know that not all lasers work for every kind of material, so if you have a large area of skin covered with multiple tattoos or an intricate design, it may be best for you to consider having it done by a professional who has experience working with this type of procedure.
Laser tattoo removal treatments are safe and effective, with a success rate of over 95% in the first session. The procedure is performed by a doctor who will inject your skin with a laser that has been tuned to remove specific colors from tattoos.
The treatment takes place in our office, where you'll lie down on one of our comfortable reclining chairs (which we'll have set up for you). Your doctor will then shine various lasers onto your skin until all of the unwanted colors have been removed. You may feel some stinging or tingling during this time, but it's completely normal and temporary—and we've seen people get back to their normal activities within minutes!
Laser tattoo removal treatments are safe and effective. And the price is right: The average cost of an in-office laser tattoo removal treatment is $1100.
