Tattoo Removal FAQs

Can I get laser therapy if I have previously treated tattoos?

Yes, you may still be a candidate for laser therapy. Tattoos not effectively removed by other treatments and ones that are not excessively scarred may respond well to laser treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments is based on ink density and your body’s reaction to the laser. Tattoo removals typically take between four to twelve visits. Make sure to schedule a consultation with a trained professional to evaluate your personal situation.

How long do I need to wait between treatments?

The time between treatments will vary depending on the rate at which your skin heals. Most clients wait four to eight weeks in between sessions.

Are all tattoos removed the same way?

No, laser treatment is customized depending on the size, age, and type of tattoo you have (professional or amateur). The pigment of your skin, as well as the depth to which the tattoo extends, will also affect the removal technique.

Will I need anesthesia?

Clients do not require anesthesia.

What does tattoo removal feel like?

Most patients report tattoo removal to be relatively painless. Others report tattoo removal as feeling like a rubber band being snapped on their skin.
