About Tattoo Removal Consultations
We believe consultations are very important to help patients understand the laser tattoo removal process. Our consultations give us the opportunity to get to know our patients and understand their needs.
At the consultation, patients will meet with a member of our clinical team. At this time we will assess the tattoo, giving the patient a realistic expectation of their outcome with laser tattoo removal.
We offer two types of consultations: a consultation only and a consultation and start.
- Consultation only – Our consultations typically take approximately 15-30 minutes, and they are purely informational. At no time will a patient be pressured to purchase a package. We feel it is important to allow each patient the opportunity to gather the information they need and make that decision in their own time. We know a patient’s time is valuable, and we begin 99% of our appointments on time. To help maintain this timeliness we require a “credit card guarantee” when scheduling consultation only. This is simply to ensure patients will keep their appointment or give us a 24-hour notice of canceling. “No-Show” consultations will be charged a $75 cancellation fee.
- Consultation and start – Over the years we have found many patients have done their homework prior to scheduling their consultation with us and are ready to begin the laser tattoo removal process. If this is the case, we can also reserve time for patients to begin treatment on the same day as their consultation. In order to reserve that time, we will take pre-payment for the package at the time the consultation is scheduled. Since pricing is determined based on size and the number of colors present in the tattoo, we ask that patients email (firstname.lastname@example.org) 2 photos, one close-up and one normal distance so that we can get an idea of the size of the tattoo. Once we have assessed the photos, we will provide patients pricing for their package and take payment. Should patients need to cancel or reschedule, we do request a 24-hour notice of canceling. Failure to provide this notice will result in a lost treatment.
We are realistic as well as understanding and know things do happen, we just ask that patients notify us as soon as possible so that we may adjust our schedule accordingly.
