Does it hurt?
Unfortunately, there is no such thing as painless laser tattoo removal, but we promise to make this process as comfortable as possible. For your comfort we utilize a unique cooling system that is intended to minimize pain and thermal injury during laser treatments, as well as a medicated topical lidocaine. The feeling is often compared to the snapping of a rubber band on your skin. You will hear a snap from the laser, feel a popping sensation under the epidermis and a slight burning sensation immediately after. Believe it or not, most people tell us it wasn’t as bad as they expected.
How many treatments are required?
Tattoo removal is a process. Complete removal generally requires multiple treatments and the number of treatments required will depend on the age, size, color and location of the tattoo, along with specific health and skin factors. We do everything in our power to remove the ink as quickly as possible without compromising the integrity of the skin.
Due to the advancement in our technology, the side effects of treatment are minimal. Reddening, puffiness and occasionally tiny blisters are all normal results after a treatment and will subside within about 7 days. A lightening or darkening of the skin is rare but can occur, and is usually temporary.
Our facility is medically compliant according to the Medical Board Rule 800. We work under the direction of a licensed M.D. and our staff is licensed and certified in the state of Colorado. We are available 24-7 should you have any questions or concerns after treatment.
