What can you expect?
Every tattoo is different. You can expect that there will be multiple sessions needed for almost all tattoos. Some of the variables include:
Skin pigmentation, scarring or trauma from the tattoo
Your age, overall health, and lifestyle
Tattoo size and colors
If the tattoo has been previously covered up by another tattoo
Which body part has the tattoo
How much does tattoo removal cost?
Flat fee pricing consists of $100 $200 $300 & $400 depending on the size & color of the tattoo. Packages available on future sessions can be discussed after the results of first sessions.
How painful is it?
Pain level varies from person to person. Some clients describe it as having their skin snapped with a rubber band. Laser Removal is slightly more intense than getting a tattoo however it takes a fraction of the time. Sessions vary from 1-10min depending on the size of the tattoo. Our technicians have a gentle and encouraging approach and will always work with your needs.
What do I do before and after a tattoo removal session?
Some general tips for before your first session include:
Stay out of the sun
Avoid hot tubs and saunas
Exercise regularly and eat healthy
Stay hydrated, avoid smoking, overindulging in alcohol, or heavy caffeine use
Refrain from using any white or pigmented creams or lotions because it will reflect the laser and hinder the effectiveness of your session
Use SPF 30+ with 10% zinc content if you’re in the sun for a prolonged period of time

Do not over bandage
Keep your treated area out of hot water and take cooler showers for the next week

Laser Tattoo Removal Aftercare
In general, keep the treated area clean and dry.
To wash the area, clean gently with soap and water then pat dry.
Apply a thin coating of Aquaphor up to three times a day, for three days while the area is healing, and keep the area covered with a sterile dressing during this time.
Within eight hours of your treatment, blistering will likely occur. It is totally normal; if the blisters pop, keep it covered with a sterile bandage until they heal. Apply antibiotic ointment over the blisters once they pop for at least 24 hours.
You may apply cool compresses as necessary for 24 hours after the laser treatment to help reduce comfort and inflammation.
Tylenol can help reduce the pain, but avoid Aspirin, as it thins the blood and increases the risk of bruising and bleeding.
Do not pick at your scab or scrape the skin, as it may result in infection and scarring. Shaving should also be avoided until healing is complete.
You may shower two hours after the treatment, but avoid hitting the treatment area with high-pressure water. Baths, hot tubs, swimming pools, or any form of soaking are not recommended until all blistering and scabbing is completely healed.
Exercise is generally safe after treatment, provided you take into account the other aftercare guidelines.
For one month after treatment, wear a sunblock with an SPF over 25 over the treatment area. Do not wear makeup or any medication cream on or near the treatment area unless recommended by our shop.
Itching is very common; use Aquaphor, Vitamin E ointment, or Hydrocortisone cream on the affected area.
Contact us if there are signs of infection like honey-colored crusting, oozing, or spreading redness. Also contact us with any questions or concerns regarding unusual discomfort or bleeding.
If you are experiencing an extreme reaction or medical emergency, call 911 or visit a local emergency department.
