What To Expect During Treatment

The most common lasers developed specifically for use in tattoo removal use a technique known as Q-Switching. Q-Switched lasers produce specific wavelengths of light that have been proven to be absorbed by certain colors of tattoo ink while avoiding damage to surrounding skin tissue and chromophores (such as melanin and hemoglobin). When the laser energy is applied for the right length of time, at the right level of energy, and in the proper wavelength, the tattoo ink is selectively targeted. The laser method used depends on the colors in your tattoo and your skin type, as different laser wavelengths are better absorbed by different colors of ink and are safer for certain skin types.

The process of removing a tattoo may require a series of treatments. For most people with small tattoos, complete elimination of the tattoo requires an average of 1 treatment a month for 8 months.

The removal of a small professional tattoo requires a series of 5-10 treatments to achieve results. During your initial consultation, we will provide you with a recommended number of treatments and cost before you begin.
