While many people make good candidates for tattoo removal, the only way to know whether tattoo removal could minimize the appearance of your tattoos is by contact our office to schedule a consultation. Based on your skin tone, the color of your tattoo and its location, we can answer any questions you may have about tattoo removal and whether it could be right for you.
How are tattoos removed?
Using a Q-switched nanosecond laser, the energy breaks apart the tattoo pigment allowing the body to absorb and flush it out.
How long will it take to have my tattoo removed?
Removing a tattoo is a multi-step process that usually requires several in-office treatments. It is normal to need 4 to 6 tattoo removal sessions, each of which may take between a few minutes to an hour depending on tattoo size, color, and location. A minimum of 6 weeks is recommended in between sessions.
