frequently asked questions
With our state-of-the-art Quanta EVO Q Plus C machine, tattoo removal treatments range from 3 to 10 on average for complete removal. Patients with heavily faded or small tattoos typically only need up to 3 or 4.
Due to every patient and tattoo being different, this is just a general guideline. During your initial assessment, our laser technician will use the following factors to estimate the number of treatments needed to achieve your desired tattoo removal goals: age of tattoo, size of tattoo, location of tattoo, density of ink, depth of ink, quality of tattoo (professional or amateur), pre-existing scarring, and patient health.
We schedule treatments at a minimum of 6 to 8 weeks apart. This allows your skin to heal before the next laser tattoo removal treatment. This waiting period is for your safety. Receiving another treatment prematurely can increase side effects and pigment changes.
The time between treatments can fluctuate based on how quickly your skin heals. Laser tattoo removal requires patience, but the results are worth it.
We have invested in the best tattoo removal laser on the market, the Quanta EVO Q Plus C, which eliminates more ink during the treatments. This allows you to achieve your goals with the least amount of treatments possible.
Each patient has a different pain threshold so your pain level may vary. The treatments are often described as a rubber band being snapped against the skin. If you made it through getting a tattoo, you will have no problem getting it removed.
Laser tattoo removal treatments are fast! Typically, each procedure lasts 1 to 20 minutes depending on the size of the tattoo.
To minimize the pain even more and alleviate any worry you may have, we use the Zimmer Cryo 5 cooling machine to numb the skin throughout the treatment.
Laser tattoo removal is by far the most effective and safest way to remove your unwanted tattoo. During the healing process, patients can experience minor side effects such as swelling, redness, scabbing, blistering, and pigmentation changes. These side effects are signs that your body is healing and removing the ink from your skin. Because of this we urge you from picking any scabs or popping blisters that may form. Interrupting this healing process can cause infections, which can lead to more serious side effects.
The healing process and how well you take care of your treatment area is just as important as the procedure. We will provide you will instruction for proper aftercare to help the area heal and become ink free.

Absolutely! Our Quanta EVO Q Plus C laser utilizes two flat top homogenized laser beams, one oval and one square. This allows the laser to pinpoint target any area of your tattoo, leaving the surrounding ink unharmed.
Yes! Not only is our laser great at removing tattoos, but it is the best solution for patients looking to get a cover-up. When getting a cover-up, most tattoo artists need to use twice the amount of ink to conceal the existing tattoo, especially when they are heavy in black or dark inks.
For optimal fading, you may only need a few treatments. This will give your tattoo artist a cleaner canvas to work with and allow for more flexibility with their design.
