What You Should Know About Laser Tattoo Removal
We Can Perform Laser Tattoo Removal On Any Skin Tone
Some older laser systems do not work on darker-toned skin, but our Q-Switched ND:YAG Laser causes no damage to the skin and only affects the tattoo ink.
Different Colors Are Harder to Remove
Colors like dark blue and black will fade much more quickly than bright colors. The darker the ink pigments are, the easier it is for the laser to target them, while it may take longer to break down all the more brightly colored pigment molecules.
Tattoo Removal Takes Time
Removing a tattoo can take anywhere from a few sessions to eight or more, depending on the size and colors of the tattoo as well as the tattoo’s age, since aging tattoos move closer to the surface of the skin.
Tattoo Removal is Permanent
You don’t need to worry about seeing those tattoo pigments again. Once the laser has treated them, they lose their color and fall apart, letting the body carry them away as part of its natural cleaning process.
Am I a Candidate for Laser Tattoo Removal?
If you have a tattoo you want to get rid of, you may be a good candidate. You should be in overall good health, a nonsmoker, and be prepared for what may be a long process before removal has been completed.
How Much Does Laser Tattoo Removal Cost?
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of a laser tattoo treatment is $423. Each person may need a different number of treatments, and this price will vary depending on where you live, the provider’s experience and skill, and other factors.
