Laser Tattoo Removal

What to Expect

July 12, 2023

Do not expect your tattoo to disappear soon after your first laser treatment. More than one treatment is likely needed to remove an entire tattoo. The number of sessions depends on several factors including the amount and color of ink used in the tattoo and how deeply it was injected.

We offer a free, non-judgmental, no-obligation consultation for everyone. Whether you are a first-time patient or are returning for removal of another tattoo, we will assess your tattoo, discuss any concerns, and give you an estimate. The treatment usually lasts no more than a few minutes and we can even begin treatments the same day!

After your treatment, the skin will be slightly raised and red. The tattoo may be covered with a thin layer of ointment and a non-stick dressing for comfort or can be left uncovered. You may shower or bath the day but area should not be scrubbed. Your skin might feel slightly sunburned and or itch for a couple of days and the treated area may even blister. The site might also form a scab, which should be handled gently. After healing, the site will gradually and continually fade.
