  • Works with most skin tones
  • Works on all skin types
  • Produces dramatic results with multiple sessions

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

While we know you want to ditch that ink like yesterday, Laser Tattoo Removal is a gradual process that depends largely on your tattoo’s location, depth, density and ink colors. For example, black ink is the easiest for our lasers to target, whereas colored ink can be a bit more complicated. When you come in for your free consultation, one of our specialists will walk you through the process and help determine the predicted number of treatments your tattoo is expected to take to fade or remove.

The Experience

STEP ONE: YOUR FREE CONSULTATION

You'll start your tattoo removal experience by coming in for a free consultation with one of our specialists. There, they will assess your tattoo's location, depth, density and color to predict approximately how many treatments are expected for your tattoo to fade or be removed.

STEP TWO: YOUR TREATMENT

At the beginning of your appointment, your clinician will apply an anesthetic cream to the area of your tattoo. You'll also be given protective eye gear and a cooling device. Once the anesthetic cream starts doing its thing, your clinician will get to work, using the laser to deliver pulses to the tattoo's pigment. Is it painful? It can be a bit uncomfortable but most people find it totally tolerable—it's often described as a sensation similar to a rubber band snapping against your skin. The amount of laser pulses depends on the tattoo's size, but most treatment sessions only last a few minutes.

Once your treatment is over, you’ll need to begin the after-care process right away. Click ahead for what you'll need to do before and after your treatment.

The Technology

So glad you asked! Laser Tattoo Removal is pretty simple—our lasers use light and heat to selectively break up and disperse tattoo pigment while leaving surrounding areas unaffected, a process called selective photothermolysis.

Laser Tattoo Removal works by targeting pigment colors in the skin’s dermis, which lies between your outer layer of skin (epidermis) and the tissue beneath. The tattoo pigments absorb the laser’s beam and fragment. Your body then naturally absorbs these fragments and eliminates them.

We primarily use the Astanza Duality, a state-of-the-art dual wavelength Q-switch laser that produces light pulses of extremely high peak power. Because Q-switch lasers are so precise and intense, tattoo pigments fragment instantly, and the surrounding tissue is spared.
