The Cost of Tattoo Removal

How much will it cost to remove your tattoo? All variables aside, laser tattoo removal is priced by the amount of ink to be removed.  If your tattoo is completely filled in with ink, simply measure your tattoo.  If your tattoo is script or has empty spaces, imagine pushing all of the ink together and estimate a measurement of solid ink.  The price per treatment  is $99.00 for one inch of ink (about the size of a quarter), $149.00 for two square inches (about the size of the height of a bank card), $199.00 for three square inches (about the size of a Post It note), $249.00 for four square inches, and $299.00 for five square inches.  If you have a large piece to be removed, don’t let the price stop you.  Come in for a free consultation and we will work out a treatment plan that will be manageable for you.  We will also estimate how many treatments it will take to meet your goals.        ...

5 Surprising Factors in Tattoo Removal

  5   Surprising Factors that Affect the Tattoo Removal Process Removing tattoos isn’t as straightforward as erasing a pencil drawing. The variables introduced by the human body influence the removal process in all kinds of ways. Some of the factors that impact the number of laser treatments necessary to remove a tattoo are more obvious than others. Ink depth, density, and color, as well as skin type are a few factors you may figure would influence the process. With any art, there are two players in the removal process — the eraser and the canvas. When using the best, most state-of-the art lasers, that means that the health of the canvas usually determines how successful the removal is. Generally speaking, healthier bodies see better results because the body processes the shattered ink and heals faster. With that said, here are five of the least known factors that can affect and even prolong the tattoo removal process. Location      Since your body is attempting to reabsorb and break...

How Painful is Laser Tattoo Removal?

The top concern for most people seeking tattoo removal is pain. Maybe you’ve seen videos on the internet, or heard a friend describe a nightmarish experience.  Those stories were the norm for the technology of that decade.   Five years ago, laser tattoo removal treatment resulted in a blistered open wound that had to be bandaged and cared for  for up to eight weeks.  Welcome to the 21st century!  Tattoo removal no longer needs to leave a scar or be unbearably painful.  The power of the Quanta Q Plus laser used by Lasercare Tattoo Removal breaks up ink particles quickly so it won’t  damage your skin.  Most treatments last under a minute and will NOT leave you with an open wound or skin damage.

Allergies Can Affect Tattoo Removal

Lasercare Tattoo Removal uses the Quanta Q Plus laser to give you the very best laser treatment that will result in a minimal number of treatments, no skin damage, and an outcome that you desire.  But the laser is just one part of the ink removal equation.  Other variables that will affect the treatment process are the contents of the tattoo ink, the density of the ink, the location on the body, and the health of the immune system.  The immune system is often taken for granted and is easy for a seemingly healthy person to overlook.  The immune system is what ultimately removes the ink particles, so if it is already under a heavy work load, the ink will be moved slowly.  Other than nicotine, allergies may have the biggest impact on the immune system.  Many people are aware they suffer from allergies but choose to deal with them by either medicating the symptoms with over the counter allergy drugs, or by simply living with them.  More serious...
