What is Tattoo Removal?

Tattoo removal involves using a laser to break down the different elements of a tattoo. This triggers an immune system response which causes our bodies to further break down the tattoo within the treated area. This will cause it to fade over time.

It typically takes multiple sessions to remove a tattoo. This is entirely dependent on the size and color of the tattoo, as well as any factors related to the individual. Your provider will be able to provide an estimate on the number of sessions it will take to fully remove your tattoo.

What is The Process For Removing a Tattoo?


We require all patients to undergo a consultation prior to receiving tattoo removal treatment. This will help us gain an understanding of your medical history as well as assess your skin and the tattoo. 

From there, we’ll be able to create a treatment plan that estimates how long it will take to fully remove your tattoo.

Day of Tattoo Removal Treatment

On the day of your tattoo removal, we’ll have one of our providers prep your skin by cleaning it and applying a topical anesthetic. We’ll also give you eyewear that can be worn to protect your eyes from the laser.

Once the anesthetic has fully set in, we’ll begin the treatment. One of our providers will hover a laser over the tattoo which will then omit a beam of light that will break up the different pigments.

Following treatment, you may feel pain or discomfort, as well as experience redness or swelling. We’ll provide you with aftercare instructions that include information on how to treat any irritation or discomfort, as well as how to protect your skin so it can heal properly.
