What Are the Benefits of Laser Tattoo Removal?
Using state-of-the-art “pico-second” technology, today’s laser tattoo removal can remove tattoos of all colors – and on all skin types with fewer treatments and more complete clearance than ever before. Our PicoSure tattoo removal involves much less pain and minimal chance for scarring compared to other laser technology, and provides a “clean slate” to the estimated 10-20% who regret their tattoo for various reasons.
Many patients describe feeling a huge sigh of relief after having their tattoo removed after living, possibly years, with regret and frustration. Overall, this procedure has an exceptionally high “patient satisfaction” rating and can be life-changing for some.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
The number of sessions required depends on your tattoo. Some colors fade faster than others, while old tattoos will break down more quickly than newer ones. A large tattoo may require more sessions if it needs to be treated in sections. Costs for a laser tattoo removal treatment Premier Vein and Body can range from $150 to $500 or more, depending on the size and colors of the tattoo. Because you need to wait several weeks between sessions, the complete removal of your tattoo may take several months.
Will My Tattoo Be Completely Gone?
Laser tattoo removal cannot always completely erase a tattoo. However, it will make the tattoo much less noticeable and may fade it to the point where others cannot tell you ever had a tattoo. Certain colors do not break down as easily as others, and newer tattoos can take longer to remove because the pigments have recently been placed and sit deeper in the skin. The physical location of the tattoo also affects how deep the tattoo pigments sit beneath the skin.
Is There Any Downtime After Laser Tattoo Removal?
Unlike some other lasers, the PicoSure® does not cause skin damage or blistering. You only need to moisturize your skin daily and keep it away from sun exposure between sessions and for several weeks afterward. Your skin will be more susceptible to sun damage while healing.
