Tattoo Removal FAQs

Is Laser Tattoo Removal Painful?

Many of our patients say it feels the same as when they had the tattoo put on. The discomfort is usually minimal. Prior to treatment we will generally numb the area with an ice pack. We will then use the Zimmer cryogenic device which, unlike other inferior cooling methods, cools the skin prior to, during and after laser tattoo removal treatment for maximum comfort and effectiveness. The Zimmer is an advanced system that cools the air to -32°C and is aimed over the treatment area to numb the skin for the most comfortable treatment. After treatment, you can go about virtually all of your regular activities while protecting and caring for the treated area like a cut or a blister until it has fully healed. The better care you take of yourself, the better results you’ll receive.

How many treatments will I need?

Your specific immune system, the type of ink used and several other factors will dictate the number of treatments required. Our True Laser™ works with your body to break down the ink and the average immune system requires 10 weeks to remove the broken-down ink particles. The number of treatments required varies by individual, but most clients need at least 5 treatments. Fortunately, every Body Details® treatment package has an all-inclusive price backed in writing by our Free Lifetime Guarantee at no extra cost.

What can I expect after each treatment?

Tattoo ink colors will fade after each successive treatment, but it is not uncommon to see no visible change after the first treatment. In some cases, the tattoo may temporarily appear darker in color because the laser treats the deepest ink first. Fading occurs gradually. Each individual’s immune system filters the ink out at a different rate. When the treatments are completed the skin will look as if the tattoo had never been there.

After treatment, care for the treated area like a cut or a blister until it has fully healed. Don’t go swimming and avoid sun or tanning bed exposure. You may schedule your next treatment 10 weeks later. Your specific immune system, the type of ink used and other factors dictate the number of treatments necessary, but most clients need at least 5 treatments.

What guidelines do I need to follow during my ongoing treatment?

During the first 24 hours following a tattoo removal treatment, please:

  • Minimize strenuous activities.
  • Apply an ice pack as often as possible.
  • Keep the treated area protected and elevated when possible.

After the first day and until the treatment area is visibly healed, please:

  • Use a moisturizing cream such as aloe or hydrocortisone.
  • Do not pick scabs or pop blisters (scarring is most often a result of poor wound maintenance which can also lead to infection).
  • Avoid swimming.
  • Steer clear of sun exposure and tanning beds.
  • Allow 10 weeks between treatments.

How much does laser tattoo removal cost?

Many variables go into providing you with the most bang for your buck, so we encourage you to get a fast, free consultation to get a better idea of how much it will cost to remove your tattoo. For example, the bigger your tattoo, the less it costs per square inch to remove it. We also take into consideration areas of your tattoo where there is no ink and we charge less for lightly shaded areas because they are easier to remove. Call 866-708-8645 to schedule your free consultation now.

Why do you have all-inclusive package prices rather than pay-per-treatment prices?

Because we know it will take you more than one treatment to remove your tattoo. By offering a package price, we give you the most bang for your buck – especially when your results are backed in writing by our exclusive Free Lifetime Guarantee at no extra cost. Plus, a package deal makes it easier to keep you on track with your treatments and helps guarantee that your tattoo will be gone forever. Call 866-708-8645 to schedule your free consultation now.
