Tattoo Removal Overview
Did your parents ever threaten you or try to scare you by saying "don't get a tattoo or it will be there FOREVER"? Well that is no longer true. With the advance in technology we are able to remove your tattoos that were either a mistake or you no longer want.
When removing a tattoo the size and length of time you have had it play a role in how effective or how long it may take to completely remove the ink from your skin.
The categories we designate for pricing and treatment types include:
Who should get this treatment?
If you have a tattoo you wish you didn’t then you’re an ideal candidate and you’re not alone. The American Society of Dermatological Surgery says half of the 40 million Americans with tattoos will eventually want one removed or changed. The Tattoo removal is suitable for people with all skin types, tattoos of any size and any color.
How Many Treatments Are Required?
This depends upon the density and color of the tattoo ink as well as the size of the tattoo. You should expect multiple treatment sessions at monthly intervals. Our system has been shown to treat tattoos in significantly fewer sessions overall as compared to other treatment types. At your consultation, we will be able to give you an estimate as to the number of treatment sessions your tattoo will require.
Why Are Multiple Sessions Required?
Only the smallest ink particles are removed by the body after the initial laser treatment session. With subsequent treatments, the remaining particles are broken down further, allowing for their removal. Typically, the more dense the tattoo ink, the more treatments will be required.
Will The Tattoo Disappear Completely?
In most cases, the tattoo will totally disappear. In the past with older technology there was trouble with bright green and blue inks. The newer technology and the system we use, safely and effectively removes or significantly lightens all colors. This will be discussed at your consultation.
