Laser Tattoo Removal KLAR Skin & Medical Spa

Laser Tattoo Removal

Laser tattoo removal is a treatment to help diminish the appearance of unwanted tattoos. During this treatment, the technician uses lasers to send out high-intensity pulses of light that target the ink inside your tattoo but leave the skin around it alone. As the ink absorbs these pulses of light, it begins to heat up. This heat makes the ink break into tiny pieces, which your immune system can then clear away. Your tattoo starts to fade as the ink goes away.

How does the body remove the shattered ink?

Once the ink is broken down by the tattoo removal laser, the body will respond by moving fluid to the area to help flush away the ink. This immune response will be obvious to the patient in the form of some swelling and redness in the area. Over the next days, weeks, and months the small, shattered ink particles will be flushed away naturally. The tattoo removal effects aren’t seen overnight and 99% of tattoos require multiple treatments.

Why do I need multiple sessions?

All tattoos have layers of ink, stacked on top of each other within the skin. The thick concentration of pigment particles that cannot be completely broken down into one session. At KLAR Skin & Medical Spa , we’ll go over your entire tattoo with the laser, breaking up as much ink as possible in every session. Each session will produce some level of fading, although for very new tattoos the fading may not be as visible because the ink is still so thick and dense. If your tattoo has shading, the shaded areas will vanish in fewer treatments because shaded tattoos have a lower ink density.

Do tattoo removal “creams” or “injections” work?

There are little to no evidence that “magic creams” help to fade tattoos. At best, they may act like a mild skin bleach to lighten the surrounding skin. Looking at the ingredients and components of such products makes one wonder how they would purportedly remove tattoo ink. These creams are a gimmick and a waste of time and money. Injection methods of tattoo removal are even worse because they basically inject highly-damaging acid into the skin. 

How much does laser tattoo removal cost?

Tattoo removal is more affordable than most people think! The cost of each session depends on the size of the tattoo or tattoos being removed. We’ll price each session during the free consultation . 

How many sessions will I need to remove my tattoo?

The number of sessions needed to remove a tattoo depends on four factors: the age of the tattoo, the color of the ink, the location of the tattoo and the density of the ink.

  • Age: Older tattoos can be removed with fewer treatments than newer tattoos. A black ink tattoo that is 10 years old may take one or two treatments less than a 1-year-old black tattoo. A 20-year-old tattoo may take two to three treatments less than a 1-year-old tattoo.

  • Color: Certain colors are more easily removed than others. Black and red tattoos are the easiest to remove. Orange, yellow, pink, purple, brown, and other shades are slightly more difficult to remove. The most difficult colors to remove are light green, light blue, and teal/turquoise. During the free consultation we’ll discuss the number of treatments you’ll need to remove certain colors, but expect that you’ll need a few more if you have a difficult color.

  • Location: Because tattoo removal depends on the body to flush away the shattered ink particles, areas of the body with less circulation often take more time to show results. The toes, fingers, ears, and nose are areas that may show slower results.

  • Ink Density: Shading in a tattoo is easily removed. Some tattoos with letters use shading to fill in the outlines of the letters. Some tattoos with certain designs use shading for clouds or other visual effects. Shading will be removed in only a few sessions in most cases.
