Is Getting Laser Tattoo Removal Painful?
Most clients experience pain. The pain occurs when the laser comes into contact with the tattoo ink and usually subsides within a few minutes of Sessions completion. We cool your skin before and during each session with a Zimmer Cooler to lessen the pain. It only takes SECONDS TO MINUTES to provide a treatment.
How Much Does Laser Tattoo Removal Cost?
Removal costs varies person to person and tattoo to tattoo. We give each client a detailed overview of their tattoo and a estimate of how long we think it will take to get rid of that tattoo. This establishes a ceiling that each client pays toward. See our Tattoo Removal Pricing page for detailed pricing.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
The number of sessions are unique to you and your tattoo. We ask questions to determine the age, ink color, and size of your tattoo. All this information is then scored. We share the score with you so you understand the number of estimated sessions. Tattoo removal is not glamorous nor fast. Be wary if you are given a five session promise. The average client wants no evidence of a tattoo when they are done, and no battle scars to say they did it. Sessions range from 3-20. Average is 10-14 sessions. Large removals(i.e. sleeves) can take several years to achieve.
Why Do I Need Multiple Sessions?
When you get a tattoo, ink is deposited at different depths of your skin. Each laser treatment is designed to hit a specific color at a specific depth. Each pass of the laser breaks up these ink particles and speeds up the body’s elimination of the tattoo itself.
Why Is The Evo Q Plus-C The Best?
This is a Q-switch, tri-wavelength laser. A Q-switch is a nano-second laser capable of working on all skin types and all ink colors. The laser breaks up the ink particles of the tattoo with a high-intensity light beam. Picosure (755 nm Alexandrite), a common laser found in many doctor’s offices and med spas, is only effective on lighter skin tones and can not handle highly saturated colored inks.
Are There Side Effects?
There are minimal risks and side effects associated with laser tattoo removal. You risk infection, changes in skin pigmentation, blistering, bleeding, ghost images, or permanent scarring at the site.
