Based on recent studies, it has been found that an estimated 45 million Americans have
tattoos.  Seventeen percent of those individuals regret having gotten a tattoo, and eleven
percent claim they have their tattoo removed or are planning to.  If you fit into this category
and are considering having your tattoo removed, our laser technology is just what you need.

Laser tattoo removal is a medical procedure in which a laser targets the pigmentation of a
tattoo in order to break it up so that it will fade.  This procedure is safe and effective for all skin
types and tattoos and results in little to no scarring.

The number of treatments required to make the tattoo fade completely vary by patient as well
as the size and color of your tattoo.  Because all tattoos are so unique, we cannot tell you
exactly how many treatments it will take, but for best results, schedule treatments
approximately 4-6 weeks apart and be sure to follow through with your appointment.

For more information, or to schedule a consultation for laser tattoo removal, you may submit a
contact form or call our office to request an appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions

  •        Is laser tattoo removal permanent?

    Yes, laser tattoo removal is permanent.  The laser targets the pigmentation of the tattoo
    and breaks it down so that your body can eliminate it naturally.

  •        Is laser tattoo removal painful?

    The feeling of laser tattoo removal is described as a rubber band snapping against your
    skin.  Sometimes, a topical anesthetic may be applied prior to treatment for a more
    comfortable experience.

  •        How many treatments will I need?

    The number of treatments required varies by patient, as well as the size and color of the
    tattoo.  A consultation with our physician will give you a better idea of the number of
    treatments you will need.

  •        How often can laser tattoo removal be performed?

    It is best to wait at least 6 weeks between treatments.  Because the laser is only breaking
    down the pigment and your body is expelling the ink, it is a process that will take some
    time.  For even better results, and possibly fewer treatments, you may try waiting 8-12
    weeks between treatments.

  •        Can all colors in a tattoo be removed?

    Most colors can be treated and fade significantly.  Black, red, and dark blue can most times
    be completely removed.  Purples and oranges typically respond well to treatment, while
    yellows and greens may take more than the average number of treatments, but will more
    than likely fade to a point where it is not easily seen.
