With the increased popularity of tattoos comes an increase in cases of tattoo regret. Fortunately, your ink may not be as permanent as you think it is. Laser tattoo removal can fade or remove your tattoo using a specialized laser system to target ink pigments.

What is Laser Tattoo Removal?

Laser tattoo removal is for anyone who wishes they hadn’t gotten that tattoo of an ex’s name, who wants to look more professional and mature, or who just no longer wants a particular tattoo. It uses laser energy to fade or remove tattoos over a series of treatments, so your tattoo will either disappear or fade to almost nothing. 

How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

At Slimming Solutions Med Spa, we use a Q-Switched ND:YAG Laser. The preferred laser for tattoo removal can remove tattoos from people of all skin tones by safely targeting tattoo ink instead of skin cells. 

Laser tattoo removal works by sending laser energy into the skin. When the laser impacts a pigment molecule, it causes the pigment to break apart. The body will absorb and get rid of the pigment over the course of a few weeks.

What You Should Know About Laser Tattoo Removal

We Can Perform Laser Tattoo Removal On Any Skin Tone

Some older laser systems do not work on darker-toned skin, but our Q-Switched ND:YAG Laser causes no damage to the skin and only affects the tattoo ink. 

Different Colors Are Harder to Remove

Colors like dark blue and black will fade much more quickly than bright colors. The darker the ink pigments are, the easier it is for the laser to target them, while it may take longer to break down all the more brightly colored pigment molecules. 

Tattoo Removal Takes Time

Removing a tattoo can take anywhere from a few sessions to eight or more, depending on the size and colors of the tattoo as well as the tattoo’s age, since aging tattoos move closer to the surface of the skin. 

Tattoo Removal is Permanent

You don’t need to worry about seeing those tattoo pigments again. Once the laser has treated them, they lose their color and fall apart, letting the body carry them away as part of its natural cleaning process.

Am I a Candidate for Laser Tattoo Removal?

If you have a tattoo you want to get rid of, you may be a good candidate. You should be in overall good health, a nonsmoker, and be prepared for what may be a long process before removal has been completed. 

How Much Does Laser Tattoo Removal Cost?

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of a laser tattoo treatment is $423. Each person may need a different number of treatments, and this price will vary depending on where you live, the provider’s experience and skill, and other factors.
