The primary removal method we utilize is laser removal, specifically the PiQo4 device by Lumenis. This laser treatment device comes with four different laser wavelengths that target a broad range of commonly used tattoo pigments on a wide array of skin tones and types.
The PiQo4 also features a highly-customizable treatment zone size that allows it to target all kinds of tattoos with no to minimal damage to the surrounding skin. Finally, the switched laser system breaks down larger or deeper sections of tattoo ink with nanosecond pulses, then dismantles shallower areas with picosecond pulses. This allows for the complete removal of tattoos no matter how old or deep the ink.
The price of laser tattoo removal using the PiQo4 device varies depending on tattoo size and pigment color used. It typically takes 2 to 10 short sessions to get rid of most tattoos.
We accept cash, personal checks, and all major credit cards.
The Laser Tattoo Removal Experience
Your therapist will thoroughly cleanse the area around the tattoo in preparation. The wand of the PiQo4 device will fire short pulses of laser that will cause your tattoo to fade almost immediately. After a few sessions, your skin will be free of any unsightly tattoos.
Laser tattoo removal has no required downtime, though keeping the treatment area away from sunlight is highly recommended. In addition, you must follow the treatment schedule set by our doctors to completely remove your tattoo.
Frequently Asked Questions
There are many variables that can affect the laser response in tattoos. The most common ones are the type of tattoo, the ink color used, the age of the tattoo, and its location.
Amateur and traumatic tattoos are cleared quicker than professional ones as they tend to be less deep. Black tattoos are the easiest to remove while light colors in the yellow/orange tones are the hardest. Older professional tattoos tend to respond better in fewer sessions. The response to the treatment is poorer in distal anatomical areas.
The laser system of the PiQo4 device affects only the tattoo itself, leaving the surrounding skin unaffected, as the laser targets only the ink granules. There will be no scarring, ghosting, or any other side effects from using a laser, as long as the doctor’s instructions on proper after-treatment care are followed.
Predicting a guaranteed definite outcome is difficult as there are many intrinsic and extrinsic factors. However, strict observance of the treatment plan is necessary for the tattoo to be erased completely.
