We now have the Alma Harmony device which along with many other types of services it has multi-color tattoo removal hand piece. The high power Q-Switched NdYag 1064nm laser is ideal for treating darker ink colors (black, blue and green) while the 532nm wavelength is effective for brighter ink colors (red, orange and yellow). The mechanical Q-Switched effect works by vibrating and breaking down the ink particles in the tattoo. As the area heals, the body's immune system flushes away the shattered ink particles, causing the tattoo to fade with minimal risk of scarring.
Tattoo removal is different for every person and every tattoo (similar to hair removal) and will require numerous sessions. Many clients can remove a majority of their tattoos between 6-10 treatments. Others will require more visits
Our tattoo removal pricing is based on the size of the tattoo. Pricing is listed on the pricing page.
Can your tattoo be 100% removed? That question is not an easy one to answer. Not only does the color of the ink matter but also the type of ink that the tattoo artist used. In many cases the tattoo can be removed with some time and a good laser. There are a few colors that are much more difficult to remove (yellows and some blues) however some people still achieve full removal. .
Tattoo removal is fairly painful but also fairly quick. We will numb the area which can help with the discomfort. The appointment will take roughly 45-60 minutes- most of time numbing the area. The actual treatment only takes a few minutes for many tattoos.
Because tattoo removal is considered a cosmetic treatment it is not covered by any insurance. We try to make it more affordable allowing you to pay per session so not having to pay all up front.
