How does laser tattoo removal work?
Laser energy is gently applied to the skin over the tattooed area. The laser shatters each ink particle into much smaller particles that can be eliminated through your body’s natural process. Through a series of treatments, the tattoo will fade and ultimately disappear.
Will the tattoo disappear right away?
You may notice an immediate fading. Generally tattoo removal will take place in a series of treatments. The number of treatments depends on the color and density of the ink, the age of the tattoo, along with the location on your body.
What does laser tattoo removal feel like?
Patients have reported the sensation as comparable to getting a tattoo, but the removal treatment is much faster! For improved comfort, a chiller or cold-roller may be used over the treated area.
Is there downtime following a laser tattoo removal treatment?
Generally, there is no downtime at all. Often, a protective bandage is placed over the laser-treated area and you can continue on with your normal activities.
Are you able to treat all tattoo colors?
Yes! Our laser is specialized to treat the full color spectrum including white and black. Some colors are more difficult to treat and may require more sessions.
How much does laser tattoo removal cost?
The overall cost will depend on the number of treatments required. That number depends on numerous factors including ink color, density and composition, location on the body, and age of the tattoo.

If I’ve already had a laser treatment somewhere else, can I have my tattoo treated by your laser?
