|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.
