Laser Tattoo Removal

Laser Tattoo Removal is the only clinical proven method to remove or lighten a tattoo without scarring. The laser creates short pulses of light energy that penetrate through the dermis of the skin to shatter the ink particles, leaving the surrounding skin tissue unharmed.

Ideal Candidates for Laser Tattoo Removal

Laser Tattoo Removal and Laser Tattoo Lightening is a great solution for every skin type, skin color, and every color of ink.

Laser Tattoo Removal FAQs

Does it hurt? 

Unfortunately, yes. We apply numbing cream for at least 30 minutes before the treatment, and ice after the treatment is complete.

Is there downtime involved? 

The duration of downtime depends on the individual and the location of the tattoo. Your aesthetician will provide proper wound care instructions after your treatment, but it’s generally the same as when you got the tattoo.

How many sessions are required? 

Your consultation will clarify the exact amount, but we usually start with 8 treatments for full removal and 4 treatments for lightening. Some major factors that determine the duration of treatments includes the distance of the tattoo from your heart, the color of the ink, the age of your tattoo, and your overall health.

How can I prepare for my treatment?

Refrain from using products containing alpha hydroxy and beta hydroxy acids, benzyl peroxide, retinoids or exfoliation on the face for at least two weeks prior to treatments. Exfoliation includes microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, and chemical peels. If you’re taking antibiotics or steroids, schedule your appointment at least two weeks following your last dose.  

We strongly encourage you to make a commitment of staying out of the sun and avoid the use of sunscreen after the treatment and beyond. Spots will return if your skin is exposed to the sun without protection.
