A noninvasive, non-surgical solution to removing unwanted tattoos without damaging the surrounding areas. Laser light and heat targets ink pigments in the dermis and breaks them apart into smaller fragments that your body naturally absorbs. Your skin will be noticeably more even and natural following each session.

we CAN NOT do treatments if:

  • The skin on or around the area to be treated is infected
  • You are on Accutane or have been in the last 6 months
  • You are currently on any photosensitizing medications
  • Your tattoo isn’t healed yet, any brand new tattoos would need to be completely healed before treatment

pre-treatment tattoo removal instructions

  • Avoid sun exposure, including tanning beds, for 2 weeks prior and 2 weeks after the treatment. If you need to go in the sun, wear sunblock on the area that you want to have treated. Suntanned or burned skin cannot receive laser treatments.
  • With darker skin tones, a pretreatment with melanin suppression would be advisable to reduce the chance of hyperpigmentation post-treatment.
  • A cold compress can be applied for 10-15 minutes prior to the treatment.
  • Avoid pain medication such as Motrin, Aleve, and Aspirin 3 to 7 days prior to the treatment.

post-treatment tattoo removal instructions

  • For the first three days, cover the area with a layer of antibiotic ointment. You can remove the bandage after three days, but keep the area as clean and as dry as possible. Hydrocortisone cream or Aquaphor can also be used to moisturize the area and reduce itching as it heals. 
  • Wear sunblock of SPF 30+ anytime you go outside. Sun exposure is not good for the skin after a tattoo removal treatment.
  • Once the bandage is off, you can shower, wash the area with mild soap, and pat dry. Avoid swimming, baths, and hot tubs until the area is completely healed.
  • Do not pick scabs, pop blisters, or shave the area until it has healed.

The laser light breaks apart ink pigments in the skin which are absorbed into the body and removed by the bloodstream.

Laser tattoo removal may take a couple of sessions. These sessions are quick, and most people describe the procedure as being less painful than getting the tattoo in the first place.
