Is It Possible To Completely Remove Your Tattoo?

It is possible to remove your tattoo. The good news is that you don’t need to have it surgically removed. We can use lasers to remove your tattoo. You may wonder how this is possible since tattoos are meant to be permanent. First, let’s discuss what a tattoo is. Then you will understand just how possible it is to remove your tattoo.

How Does a Tattoo Work?

When you get a tattoo, thousands of microscopic particles of ink are inserted into your skin. These particles remain suspended in your skin, so the tattoo can be visible. Your immune system won’t try to remove these foreign microscopic particles because they are too big. Your immune system only perceives a particle as a threat if it is small enough. This means that the ink particles remain suspended in your skin permanently or until a laser removes them.

How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

We can remove your tattoo using a laser to break the microscopic ink particles down. When the ink particles are small enough, they can be removed from your body naturally by your immune system. The laser sends high-powered light waves to the targeted area and heats the particles until they break down. Once these particles have been heated and broken down, your body will flush them out, and your tattoo will be history. While this procedure is easy enough, it does not yield instant results. 

How Many Sessions Does It Take to Remove the Tattoo?

The number of tattoo removal sessions required will be different for each patient since each tattoo is different. The time it takes to remove a tattoo depends on three factors:

The size of the tattoo.

The colors in the tattoo.

The complexity of the tattoo design.

Of course, larger tattoos will take longer to remove, especially if it is a complex design with various colors. On average, you can expect your tattoo to be completely removed in 1-10 laser sessions. While that is a vague answer, you can visit us for a consultation to know for sure. We also ensure that your sessions have a 6-week interval between them to allow your body to heal and remove the broken-down ink particles naturally. 

Is Laser Tattoo Removal Painful?

Your burning question may be about how the treatment will feel. Much like laser hair removal, laser tattoo removal can be slightly painful. However, you should avoid applying a numbing cream to your skin before the treatment, as this could interfere with the laser pulses. We will do everything we can to successfully remove your tattoo with minimal pain and discomfort.

Aftercare Tips Between Sessions

It is essential to take care of your skin between tattoo removal sessions. Ensure that you clean the area being treated with soap and water each day. You can apply an antibiotic ointment to speed up the recovery process. However, we will provide a set of instructions specific to your tattoo removal treatment.

How Much Does Laser Tattoo Removal Cost?

As we mentioned, the cost to remove your tattoo depends on the tattoo itself. Your tattoo removal will be more expensive if you have a larger, more complex tattoo with various colors that are difficult to break down. Light blues, green, purple, and orange may require more effort to remove. However, we offer a treatment package to help you manage the costs of your tattoo removal.
