Q & A: Laser Tattoo Removal

In most situations yes, but not always. We use the ConBio RevLite laser which is the gold standard for tattoo removal. It has 4 wavelengths to remove all colors of ink. Some colors are more difficult to remove such as blue and green and may require additional treatments. Some colors, such as white and pink, cannot be removed.

 

On average, tattoos take between 5 and 15 treatments. Things such as color, ink type, skin color, location and age of tattoo, effect how many treatments you will need. We will evaluate your tattoo at your consultation and let you know how many treatments you can expect.

One of the first three treatments will lighten the tattoo.  Some people will see this after one treatment and for others it may take longer.  Everyone responds differently.

 

Limit the amount of physical activity that you do and sun exposure for the first 24 hours.  If the body gets too overheated, it can cause the tattoo to blister.  Showers can be taken but only if they are luke warm and use mild soap.

Yes, the laser is accurate and can remove unwanted parts of tattoos.

 

This procedure is slightly more uncomfortable than getting a tattoo, however it is extremely fast. 

Sorry but insurance does not cover this procedure.  We do have other payment options that we can discuss with you at your free consultation.  Also, you can visit our pricing page for additional payment information.

Unfortunately no.  You must wait 6 weeks after a tattoo has been put on to start the removal process.

Blisters and scabs are normal.  You should not pop or pick at them.  If it is bothering you feel free to call us to come in and have it drained.  If the blister pops on its own, keep the skin over it and cover with Aquaphor and guaze.  This is to promote healing and to prevent scarring.

Most of the time no, but patients must be compliant with aftercare instructions.
