Tattoo removal procedures do not need to hurt,
certainly not at our office. Contrary to popular practice, where the area of
the tattoo removal is not numbed causing a lot of pain, our nurse localizes the
area, making the procedure completely pain-free. A state of the art laser then
targets the pigment of the tattoo, breaking the molecules apart under the
skin’s surface. The body eventually reabsorbs these broken particles and the
tattoo fades gradually after a series of treatments.
We also provide our services to patients who
are only looking to lighten their tattoo for a new overlay. Most patients will
need up to six treatments if they want their tattoo completely removed. But the
key variables for this number are the color and the amount of time they’ve had
the tattoo. The cost can vary per treatment depending on the size, but it
ranges from $100 to $400 per treatment. Patients can also get a discount
when they pre-pay packages of three or six treatments. Each treatment
takes approximately 30 minutes, and we recommend six weeks between treatments.
Our service will make sure that every patient has a pain-free experience.
