Frequently Asked Questions
How big is a square inch?
A square inch is about the size of one postage stamp. A business card is six square inches. To determine how many square inches your tattoo is, measure the length and the width and multiply those numbers together to get the total square inches. We charge from $37 to $47 per square inch per visit with a minimum of $99 for tattoo removal.
My tattoo has lots of colors. Can it be removed?
Usually, but not always. We use state of the art lasers and the newest techniques. Some colors may require more treatments, but they can be usually removed. Some colors cannot be removed. Certain shades of purples, pinks, yellow, and white are examples of colors that may not be removable.
Will it be gone after my first treatment?
No. There are several different factors involved in determining how many treatments your particular tattoo will require.
I had my first treatment and nothing seems different. Is this normal?
Yes. Some people may even see their tattoo get darker with their first treatment. Everyone responds at a different rate. The treatment is only effective with multiple visits…just be patient and you will get the best results possible.
I had a treatment a week ago and it seems all healed. Can I come back sooner than six weeks?
Healing is not the reason for the spacing of your treatments. The laser does not expel the ink, it breaks it up so your body’s immune system can take it away. If you treat your tattoo too frequently, the laser is simply targeting the ink your body hasn’t had the chance to remove, and you pay more for the same result.
Are there any limitations after treatment?
You may resume all activities soon after treatment, provided you ensure the area is not rubbed or scratched. If you are in the sun, you should cover the treated area to prevent sunburn until the skin has healed.
I love this tattoo, but there’s this one part that bugs me. Can I have just a piece of it removed?
Yes. We can take the face off your pin-up girl to have it redone. We can take just the name off the banner across your heart. Our lasers are very accurate.
I have permanent make-up (lip liner, eyeliner, eyebrows) Can you remove it?
We do not treat these types of tattoos. Some cosmetic inks have metallic bases. When the laser comes in contact with these inks, it can turn black. Be cautious of anyone who says they can effectively remove cosmetic ink. Once this darkening occurs, it cannot be removed by any laser. You may end up with permanent black lip liner. Tattooed eyeliner cannot be removed due to the danger of the laser near the eye, and the ink in permanent eyebrows could migrate up the forehead causing a shadow effect.
Do I have to pay for my entire treatment in advance?
No. However, we offer discounts if you do. You can pay for one treatment at a time. We provide discount packages for multiple treatments.
Will I have a scar?
Most patients will not scar, however, scarring is a possibility in any medical procedure involving the skin. If you are predisposed to Keloids, or you scar easily, your chances are higher. Compliance with our aftercare instructions will greatly reduce your chances of scarring.
Does it hurt?
Pain is your personal perception and everyone experiences it differently. There is a minimal amount of discomfort involved in this procedure. Prior to your treatment, we numb the area with a high power topical anesthetic cream mixture.
As we treat the area, we cool the overlying skin with our Zimmer Cryo 5 skin cooler, resulting in additional anesthesia. The Cryo 5 Skin Cooling Unit is a mobile unit that cools room air to -32 degrees C. The air is then directed onto the tissue area via a flexible treatment hose. The skin cooling system designed for superficial aesthetic procedures. The Cryo 5 Cold Air Device is intended to minimize pain and thermal injury during laser and dermatological treatments and for temporary topical anesthetical relief.
Unlike other cooling methods such as contact cooling, cryogen spray or ice packs, the Cryo 5 can cool the epidermis before, during and after laser energy has been applied. This combination of topical anesthesia and cooling air makes the procedure as comfortable as possible- patients rave about this excellent new cooling system.
