One in four Americans has a tattoo. Unfortunately, many of them regret their decision and turn to laser tattoo removal for help. Laser tattoo removal is the golden standard for removing or lightening unwanted ink. New advancements in laser technology, such as the Piqo4 laser, make the overall process of removing a tattoo faster and less painful than ever before.

  • Safe, effective permanent tattoo removal
  • Less painful
  • No downtime required
  • No scarring or tissue damage
  • Amazing results
  • Works on every ink color
  • Safe for any skin type
  • Requires fewer treatments
  • Get faster results

How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

Laser tattoo removal employs pulsed wavelengths of light. eThese wavelengths are calibrated to penetrate the specific colors of ink within the tattoo. The calibration allows the laser to pass safely through the skin and tissue without damaging the skin’s surface or causing any injury to surrounding tissue. When targeted pigment within the tattoo absorbs the laser, intense thermal energy causes the ink to break apart into smaller particles. These particles are now small enough to be absorbed by the body. The energy of the laser simultaneously initiates a natural healing process within the body. This triggers the lymphatic system to gradually collects the fractured ink particles. And the unwanted tattoo progressively fades from view..

Does Laser Tattoo Removal Hurt?

Laser tattoo removal used to be a painful procedure. Now thanks to the significant advancements in laser technology,  treatments are much more tolerable. Laser therapies now feature pulsed bursts of energy that are easier on the skin. Pulsed light also preserves the surface of this skin. This further reduces laser tattoo removal pain or discomfort. Along with less painful, less invasive laser technology, treatments are much easier to endure with numbing creams, local anesthetics, and cooling devices.

Short pulses of high energy breakdown ink particles in less time and require fewer treatments.

Different Spot Sizes

Different spot sizes allow the laser technician to customize the treatment to the specific needs and unique characteristics of the patient’s tattoo

4 Wavelengths of Light

With several points of light, the PiQo4 laser can target nearly any color of unwanted ink.

How Many Laser Tattoo Removal Treatments Will I Need?

The number of treatments needed depends on several factors. This includes the size, location, and the number of tattoos you want to be removed. Other considerations include the type and color of ink, and whether you want to lighten the tattoo or remove it altogether.

Typically, 6 to 12 laser removal treatments are required to achieve complete clearance of professionally administered tattoos. Darker inks, like black and blue, will break down quicker and require fewer treatments. Conversely, brighter colors like green, red, and orange are harder to break down and will require more treatments to remove effectively.

Laser tattoo removal costs will vary from person to person. The overall cost depends mainly on the size of the tattoo and the number of treatments needed to achieve the desired level of clearance.
