Tattoos aren’t necessarily permanent – we can remove them.
Old tattoos fade because your body naturally breaks down the ink over time. Given enough time, your body would completely remove the tattoo on its own. Our laser tattoo removal service simply accelerates this natural process by shattering the ink into smaller and smaller pieces so that it’s easier for your body’s immune system to get rid of the tattoo. Gradually, your body filters the ink out naturally until the majority of tattoos are completely invisible.
Unlike commonly used, cheap, one-size-fits-all weaker lasers, our exclusive PicoWay True Laser Class IV
medical lasers are the strongest class approved by the FDA. They use multiple wavelengths – adjusted for your particular skin tones and types as well as ink colors, and are clinically proven to be the most effective at safely, comfortably and permanently removing body art.
Does Laser Tattoo Removal Hurt?
The majority of our patients say that our laser tattoo removal service feels similar to when they had the tattoo put on. The discomfort is generally minimal. Our highly trained certified medical professionals follow an exclusive, intensely researched treatment protocol that minimizes discomfort while maximizing results.
Prior to treatment we will generally numb the area with a Zimmer cryogenic device which cools the skin prior to, during, and after laser tattoo removal treatment for maximum comfort. The specialist performing your treatment will adjust the True Laser® based on your ink and skin type for maximum effectiveness. You will wear eye protection during the procedure.
If you want to experience what it feels like, while we never offer free trials of treatments, we do offer a "test pulse". Using the laser settings which (based upon your particular factors) we would be most likely to start your treatments with, you could experience 2 or 3 laser pulses. It would not possibly be effective at hair removal, and laser settings do increase, but it would at least give you a sense of how a treatment would feel. For a test pulse, you must still follow the pre-treatment instructions found here, because they are not only for safety, but also affect your skin's sensitivity.
How Long Do Sessions Take?
At Body Details, most laser tattoo removal sessions take less than 20 minutes. You can be in and out the door in no time. If you are treating a larger area of the body, such as a full back tattoo, sessions may last an hour or more.
