Tattoos have become a great avenue for self-expression. However, what seems like a good idea at the time often turns to regret when a tattoo no longer has meaning or just does not look good anymore. There are different ways to fade and hopefully remove the unwanted tattoo from the body. But the most effective way is Laser Removal.
We understand that change is inevitable, and you are ready to move on. Removing a tattoo or lightening a tattoo is much easier to cover-up than a large dark tattoo.

al when compared to results from other devices. Our laser tattoo removal treatments are safe, fast, and extremely effective.
12 tips to consider before scheduling tattoo removal
- Some tattoos fade only partially after laser treatments.
- Older tattoos fade more easily than newer ones.
- Fading is generally slower for tattoos located further down the arm or leg.
- Amateur tattoos are usually easier to remove than professional tattoos.
- No single laser can remove all tattoo colors. Different dyes respond to different light wavelengths.
- Black and dark green are the easiest colors to remove; yellow, purple, turquoise and fluorescent dyes are hardest.
- Tattooing itself may scar or change skin texture, an effect often hidden by the dyes. If laser removal uncovers skin changes, you may be left with what looks like a “ghost” of your old tattoo.
- Laser treatments may darken or lighten skin pigment over and around the tattoo.
- Apply sunscreen before and after laser tattoo removal to minimize changes in your skin pigment. For the same reason, wait for your tan to fade before having a tattoo removed.
- Certain cosmetic tattoos, such as red, white and flesh-colored lip liners, may darken immediately with laser therapy. (This effect can usually be corrected with further treatment.)
- If immediate skin darkening is a concern, the laser should be tested on a small spot first.
- If you experienced an allergic reaction when getting your tattoo — intense itching and swelling of dyed area(s) — tell your doctor. Using a “Q-switched” laser to remove the tattoo can trigger a more serious allergic reaction.
