Laser Tattoo Removal What to Expect

On average, laser hair removal treatments last about 10–15 minutes. Treatments are generally pretty quick at the beginning of the process and get a little bit longer as the process comes to a close.

What to expect from laser hair removal treatment:

  • Treated area is prepped and cleaned
  • A picture is taken to track a patient’s progress
  • A test spot is given to prepare you for your treatment
  • The laser specialist goes over the entire tattoo and depending on many factors might go over a second time
  • A thin layer of ointment is applied and the skin is bandaged
Follow Up Care

Typically, follow up appointments are scheduled 4 weeks out. The number of treatments will be determined by the size, location and specifics of your tattoo as well as your skin type and other medical considerations

Laser Tattoo Removal FAQs

How does laser tattoo removal work?

The Center For SmartLipo & Plastic Surgery uses the extremely effective and powerful tattoo removal lasers. The energy produced from the laser quickly heats up and shatters the ink without damaging surrounding tissue. The ink is then flushed through your lymphatic system.

How many sessions will I need?

The amount of sessions varies depending on the depth, density, color, quality and age of the tattoo. Typically, it takes anywhere from 3–10 treatments to remove a tattoo completely with treatments spaced 4 week apart. Black and Red inks are the easiest to remove and blues and greens can be more challenging. The laser works by breaking down each layer of ink in your tattoo.

What will my skin look like when my treatments are done?

Our physicians strive to deliver the best results for each patient. Not all tattoos can be removed completely depending on their size, location, color and your skin type. We will work with you to outline the results you can expect. In most cases, patients undergoing laser tattoo removal see a 50–80% decrease in the appearance.*

How long does each treatment last?

The time for each laser tattoo removal session depends on each individual. Most treatments take roughly 5–20 minutes, which enables you to have a treatment on your lunch break or before or after work.

What side effects should I expect?

Most common side effects of laser tattoo removal include slight swelling, redness, bruising, scabbing and blistering.

Is laser tattoo removal painful?

Laser tattoo removal is a little uncomfortable but not painful. Most patients compare it to getting a tattoo or having a small rubber band snap against their skin.
