The average number of treatments needed is between 5 -10 -12. Patients with faded tattoos or those interested in lightening their tattoo for a cover-up may only need 3 to 5 treatments. However, it’s impossible to know how many treatments you will need without first assessing your tattoo in person. Our expert laser technicians use a variety of factors to best determine the number of treatments you and your unique tattoo will need. These factors include:
Laser tattoo removal is the safest method for getting rid of unwanted ink. Our Astanza Duality safely penetrates deep into the skin and targets only the ink while leaving the surrounding skin tissue unharmed. The only side effects patients experience are temporary redness, itchiness, scabbing, blistering, and swelling. Some patients may experience slight pigmentation changes, however, all of these side effects are temporary and heal with proper aftercare over the weeks following each treatment.
The laser sensation is often described as a rubber band snapping against the skin. Patients with lower pain tolerance compare it to having a tattoo applied. Luckily, laser tattoo removal treatments are very quick and last as little as 1 to 30 minutes depending on the size of the tattoo(s) being treated. Before & After Laser Tattoo Removal has invested in the Zimmer Cryo cooling machine to help minimize pain and maximize patient comfort. This cooling device successfully numbs the skin before, during, and after treatment. To learn more about this innovative technology, visit our Technology page.
Before & After Laser Tattoo Removal decides the price per treatment based on the size of the tattoo being removed. Our pricing is straightforward, easy to follow, and competitive. We also offer special treatment packages and seasonal discounts to help save you more. Our Astanza Duality laser is also designed to eliminate more ink in fewer treatment sessions, saving you time and money.
Treatment sessions are spaced a minimum of 6 to 8 weeks apart. This healing period is necessary to give your skin enough time to heal before undergoing its next laser session. Depending on how many treatments your unique tattoo will need and how quickly your immune system heals, some patients may see complete results in a few months while others may take a year or more. All in all, the results are well worth the wait!
