Frequently Asked Questions
How does laser tattoo removal work?
Laser energy is delivered to the tattoo, targeting the ink and breaking it down into smaller particles. The particles are eliminated by the body’s natural processes, resulting in a lightening of the tattoo ink.
How many treatments will I require?
The number of laser treatments needed is dependent on a number of variables such as ink type, size of the tattoo, lifestyle habits, etc. During your consultation, we will evaluate your tattoo and recommend a realistic treatment regime to help you achieve the best results.
How often will I need treatments?
While it typically it takes 8 weeks for the body to absorb ink particles, every patient and tattoo responds differently. Following the recommended post treatment protocol will likely improve the results and reduce the chance of adverse events.
Can I have only a portion of my tattoo removed?
Yes, the Picosure Laser provides energy precisely enough so that a small amount of a tattoo can be removed without affecting the surrounding tattoo.
How much does tattoo removal cost?
The cost of laser removal depends on several factors, including the size of the tattoo and the number of treatments it will require. Following your consultation, we can provide you a price estimate for the treatment series.
Can I lighten the tattoo to have another one put on top?
Yes, tattoos can be lightened in preparation for a cover-up tattoo. We recommend that you wait six weeks between your last treatment and when you have the new tattoo completed.
Does tattoo removal hurt?
This procedure is slightly more uncomfortable than getting a tattoo, however it is very fast. Many treatments may take less than a minute. Should a client wish, we can also work with you on the best pain management option for you based on your individual situation.
Will I blister and scab afterwards?
Blisters and scabs can be a normal response. Keeping the skin covered with a healing ointment and gauze can promote healing and prevent scarring.
