How long are the treatments

Treatments range from 5-45 minutes depending on the size and placement of the tattoo. Small single-colored tattoos can be the quickest treatment times.  Complex, large and multi-colored images take more work will take longer, sometimes requiring multiple sessions to finish one pass at the tattoo.
Why are multiple sessions required?
Tattoo ink is deposited deep in the skin. In order to reach all of the ink in the skin, multiple treatment sessions are needed for clearance. Depth, size and color of the tattoo also impact the number of treatments needed. At each visit we will break the ink into smaller and smaller pieces so that body’s immune system (white blood cells) can dispose of the pigment

Will the tattoo completely disappear?

In most cases, yes. However, it is very important to know that some ink colors are more difficult to clear than others and in some cases total clearance may not be possible. If this happens, usually only faint ghost lines will remain.. Come in for a consultation to learn more. It should also be noted that there is a possibility of slight pigment change where the ink once was.

Is the procedure painful?

Patients compare the procedure to a rubber band being snapped against their skin. The smaller the tattoo the less painful the treatment. We offer a topical anesthetic that can minimize any discomfort that you may encounter. We also use a super chiller to cool the skin as it is being treated. In most cases, especially with smaller tattoos, the chiller is sufficient in managing any discomfort during treatment.

Are there any side effects following the treatment

Most patients experience redness and swelling immediately following the treatment. These side effects normally resolve quickly.

How many treatments are required?

The total number of treatments vary depending on many factors including the composition, depth and the color of the ink, as well as the size of the tattoo and location on your body. Your metabolism also plays a factor in how quickly your tattoo can be removed. You should be prepared for multiple treatment sessions to see full clearance of your tattoo. At Colorado Springs Tattoo Removal we see most tattoos disappear in 4-8 treatments spaced about 4-8 weeks apart, some will take more and some will take lass. During your initial consultation the Master Esthetician will be able to give you greater insight as to what your tattoo removal treatments will entail.

What is recovery from a Laser Tattoo Removal treatment like?

After a treatment, you can resume normal activities, including showering and exercise. You may have temporary soreness, redness, swelling or blistering. A thin wound dressing protects your skin while it heals. You can remove the dressing after a few days. Immediately after treatments you can resume normal activities, including showering and mild exercise. You should avoid heat and sun for a few days, and it’s a good idea to take it easy as your body recovers
