We use the Tri-Lase laser for tattoo removal. Tri-Lase is the most advanced, brand new tattoo removal technologies on the market. When treating benign pigmented lesions and tattoo ink with the Tri-Lase laser system you can expect reliable and predictable clinical results with minimal risk of adverse reactions and textural changes to the skin.
This laser system selectively shatters and destroys the target while preserving the surrounding healthy cellular structures. The macrophages of the skin’s immune system will then start cleansing the fragments from the body.Your tattoo can be removed painlessly with minimal to no downtime. For a consult please call us.
How many treatments will it take?
Not all body art is created alike; many factors are involved that determine the number of treatments needed, such as:
- How long the tattoo has been in the skin
- The depth of ink in the skin
- The type of ink in the skin
- Was the tattoo created by a professional artist or an amateur?
Usually professional tattoos will need 3 – 9 treatments. The sessions will be spaced 4 – 6 weeks apart, allowing the body’s immune system to naturally remove the pigment fragments.
What does the treatment feel like?
Most patients report that the treatment sensation for removing a tattoo is similar to getting a tattoo. Other patients say the laser treatment feels like a rubber band snapping against the skin. A numbing cream can be used to make the procedure more comfortable.
How will I take care of my skin after the treatment?
An anti-bacterial ointment and ice will need to be applied. If a scab forms, it is vital that the area is never picked or scratched in order to avoid scarring. For optimal results, follow any post treatment instructions given to you by the clinician.
How much does laser tattoo removal cost?
