But many people want to get rid of their tattoo for a variety of reasons: a name of someone they are no longer involved with; a mistake after a night of indiscretion; a change in their views of life; a job interview or promotion; they want a different tattoo and need to get rid of the old one first, etc. There are lots of possible reasons for getting rid of a tattoo.

What most people don’t think about is what a tattoo will look like 20 to 30 years from now. Many people in their 60′s to 80′s have large dark smudges that don’t resemble anything to the original design. Even though these old tattoos can be removed, they take a little longer so it’s important to get them removed as soon as possible. Here is a video of someone right here in our office getting her first treatment and shown on our sister website that promotes this technique:
Does Laser Tattoo Removal hurt?
Our laser tattoo removal process is similar to getting a snap on the skin of a small rubber band. Our process is not entirely pain-free and local anesthetic creams and cold air systems are available if needed.
How does Laser Tattoo Removal work exactly?
Lasers are an ingenious device that produce light at specific wavelengths. The tattoo ink is subsequently removed or eliminated because the properties of that specific wavelength which passes through the skin and are absorbed by the tattoo ink. This will cause the tattoo ink to dissipate in a small particulate matter which is removed by the ingenious filtering system inside of our body. This process also leaves the surrounding skin almost entirely unharmed.
Can Laser Tattoo Removal remove every Tattoo, 100%?
One of the most important questions that people have is that they want to know is if we can remove the tattoo completely? The answer is that in most cases, over 95% of the tattoo will be gone. It is important to know that there are lots of different types of tattoo inks used throughout the world and none of them are regulated by any government agency. Since these tattoo inks come from all types of sources and it’s impossible to know which kind was used or how deeply it was applied, it’s impossible to predict the accurate degree of how much a tattoo can be removed. But in most cases we can remove tattoos created by professionals, homemade or amateur ones, plus traumatic and surgical tattoos.
Here are some before and after photos of the laser tattoo removal process:
How many treatments does the laser tattoo removal process take? This is another question that we must give a relative answer to but on average, it takes about 8 to 10 treatments to remove a tattoo. Some require up to 15 sessions to complete. Color tattoos may require more and some amateur tattoos will require less. Each tattoo removal treatment is spaced about 4 to 6 weeks apart. The number of treatments is determined by the amount of ink, the type of ink and the depth of that ink in the skin.
So you can even remove color tattoos? For the most part yes. Surprisingly dark blue and black inks are the easiest to remove. Purple tattoos and orange ones usually fade fairly well along with Red. The most difficult of all to remove are Yellow, Light Blue and especially Green ones, so they will take additional treatments to produce the desired fading. Our laser tattoo removal program can remove almost all tattoos.
What are the benefits of laser tattoo removal? The good news is that in most cases and just a few months down the road, we can eliminate a misguided decision from years ago.
