Can my tattoo be completely removed?
A: In most cases, yes. However, keep in mind that there are no FDA regulations on tattoo ink. So we can’t know all the additives in any given ink used in your tattoo. That is why it’s hard to promise 100% removal.
Do all ink colors respond the same?
A: No. Black and red are the easiest colors to remove. Some light greens and light blues are a little harder to remove and can take more treatments to remove them.
Will I have a scar?
A: There is very little chance of any scarring. This is because the laser we use doesn’t penetrate deep enough into the skin to cause scarring, and also because the pulse from the laser only targets tattoo ink pigments, not the surrounding cells and tissue. However, if you have a history of keloid scarring please discuss this before you begin treatment.
What side effects will I experience?
A: These are similar to when the tattoo was applied. Most patients will experience some swelling, redness, and minor blistering of the skin after a treatment. These effects are temporary and your skin will heal completely. We will provide complete aftercare instructions after your treatment.
