Approximately 30% of the people in the U.S have at least one tattoo. Virtually half of all millennials have one. However not all of them are happy about having a tattoo. 25% of people with tattoo regret getting it.
If you are in the boat of the 25%, we’ve got good news for you at Madison Laser Tattoo Removal. You can easily get rid of your unwanted tattoo with the laser tattoo removal techniques.
How It Works
Laser Tattoo removal technique removes tattoos by splitting the pigment colors light beam of great intensity. Black tattoo pigments are easier to treat because they absorb all laser wavelength. Other colors can also be erased by lasers by selecting the appropriate laser for each pigment color.
First you have to schedule a consultation with a Laser Tattoo removal specialist that can assess your tattoo and advice you about the procedure. The number of treatments you need will depend you’re the size, age and color of your tattoo. Also, your skin color and the depth of your tattoo pigment will also affect the removal technique.
What to expect during a laser tattoo removal session
In general, you should expect the following during a laser tattoo removal session though it may defer from specialist to specialist;
1. You will be provided with a pair of protective eye shields
2. The specialist will conduct a test to know your skin’s reaction to determine which energy is most effective for the treatment.
3. The professional uses the laser to focus beams of intense light through the skin. This beam of light will be absorbed by the tattoo pigment only.
The intensity of beam passed will depend on the size of the tattoo. Small tattoos require few pulses while the larger one will require more pulse of light to erase them. Whichever the case may be, it takes more than one treatment to completely get rid of a tattoo. After each visit, your tattoo will become progressively lighter.
Depending on the size, clinic, specialist and laser removal technique/instrument, the price of laser tattoo removal varies.
Most clinic measure the width and height of the tattoo to compare it to a size category. The bigger it is, the more expensive it is to remove.
The choice of clinic and specialist also contributes to the pricing. Generally, specialist in clinics charge between $50 to $500 per treatment, depending on the complexity and size of the tattoo. The price of laser tattoo removal at Med Spas is substantially higher because they are owned by physicians and use more aesthetic techniques. Med Spas charge between $100 to $700 per treatment. Plastic surgeons and dermatologist are the most expensive specialist charging between $150 to $1000 per session.
