Individuals who are seeking tattoo removal should start by consulting with a tattoo removal specialist. X-Tattoo offers free consultations to discuss what treatment options may work best.
Treatment time and amount of treatments depend on size, shape, color, age of tattoo, homemade or professional, depth, location, skin type and any skin conditions.
Before the treatment, some physicians recommend a non-aspirin pain medication that does not act as a blood thinner, such as Tylenol (aspirin and ibuprofen can cause bruising). Discomfort varies with every person, some people compare getting a tattoo removed to a rubber band snap on the skin.
The laser used for tattoo removal targets the tattoo pigment with short bursts of high-intensity light from the laser. The laser penetrates the skin but only targets the tattoo pigment, sparing the surrounding tissue from damage.
Our treatments are every 5-6 weeks to give your body time to heal and to get the best results with no scarring.
