Tattoo Removal Faq’s

How many treatments do I need to completely remove my tattoo?

On average, most tattoos need 3 to 7 treatments for complete removal. Clients interested in lightening their tattoo for a cover-up may only need 1 to 4 treatments. Almost every client will need multiple treatments to remove the many layers of ink that make up a tattoo. During your complimentary consultation, we will assess your tattoo and determine the number of treatments you will need using a variety of factors, including:

  • Tattoo age
  • Tattoo size
  • Tattoo location
  • Ink density
  • Tattoo colors
  • Type of tattoo (professional vs amateur)
  • Type of ink used
  • Pre-existing scarring
  • Patient’s health

Does laser tattoo removal hurt?

Laser tattoo removal is often compared to a rubber band snapping on the skin. Most clients find the procedure to be very tolerable, and laser tattoo removal is a much quicker procedure than tattoo application. Treatments last anywhere from seconds to 15 minutes, depending on the size of the tattoo. The Erasure also utilizes the Zimmer Cryo cooling machine to provide the ultimate numbing solution and maximize client comfort during the entirety of each treatment session.

Is laser tattoo removal safe?

Laser tattoo removal is the safest method for removing unwanted tattoos. We only use FDA-cleared laser technology to ensure the safest treatments for all our clients. Our laser practitioners are well-trained in operating pico technology and use customized protocols for each tattoo and skin type.

Are there any side effects?

Clients may experience temporary swelling, redness, blistering, scabbing, and pigmentation changes immediately following treatment. All of these side effects are natural reactions to the laser, and will start to subside over the weeks following treatment. Clients can expect optimal results as long as they follow proper aftercare instructions.
