Tattoo Removal Methods

No one gets a tattoo anticipating its removal. The tattoo artist, whose goal is to create a permanent image, embeds the ink deep within the dermis. The ink is below the outer layers of skin, the epidermis, so the ink won’t be effected by shedding of the skin or external factors acting on the surface of the skin. Removing this ink is possible, some methods more acceptable than others. Wrecking Balm, Tattoo B Gone, lemon juice, and other lotions can lighten the top layer of the skin over the tattoo, possibly making the tattoo appear lighter. This skin is constantly shedding off, so reapplication is ongoing. Basically, this method includes any bleaching of the skin and only has a minimal effect. The ink itself is never effected. Salt scrubs, sandpaper, and dermabrasion can remove tattoo ink only if the epidermis is scrubbed off, exposing the ink in the dermis. Then this deeper tissue must be scrubbed away. Abrasion is a method that is usually left unfinished due to the...

Yes, your tattoo CAN be removed!

Lasercare Tattoo Removal has brought Alaska into the 21st century with the most advanced laser technology on the market today.  We use the Quanta Q Plus laser, the most powerful tattoo removal laser available. This enables Lasercare to remove tattoos of nearly any color without the scarring and intense pain of other less powerful lasers currently in use.  The Quanta’s laser pulse takes less time to reach and destroy ink molecules, and this means less time that the skin is under the laser, therefore reducing the chance for damage to the skin. This stronger laser also means fewer treatments, less pain, and a higher rate of removal success.   Weaker lasers take longer to reach the ink, which results in the laser heating up the skin causing damage and blistering.  Lasercare’s Quanta laser has a broad spectrum of wavelengths specifically designed to destroy ALL colors of ink, so you won’t end up with a partially removed tattoo. Leave the scarring and pain of tattoo removal in the past where...

Picosure Laser Lawsuit

The manufacturer of the Picosure tattoo removal laser has had a class action lawsuit filed against them.  Cynosure marketed the Picosure laser as an effective tattoo removal laser able to remove even the toughest colors of ink, all the while knowing that the laser could not remove tattoo ink.  Laser operators have been using their Picosure lasers for up to five years, getting paid by clients with no results.  If you are one of these unfortunate people, you can see if you are eligible for compensation. The Quanta Q Plus C laser continues to be the most successful tattoo removal laser available.  Lasercare Tattoo Removal has been successfully removing tattoos for over three years now, with hundreds of satisfied clients.  Consultations are free, find out more by talking to a tattoo removal expert...

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.        ...

Fresh Start for a Mother of Two

Fifteen years ago, Holly Smith* was confident she knew what her future held.  As the tattoo artist inked a marijuana leaf on her chest, she knew it would be easy to hide, and besides, she knew she wouldn’t care who saw it. Fast forward ten years to Holly’s wedding.  Her day was perfect except for her dress.  She loved the plunging necklines of so many beautiful gowns, but she couldn’t let her in laws see the tattoo that now represented the wild life she had left behind.  Over the years, she had carefully selected clothing that would cover her tattoo, but too often that meant not getting to wear the things she wanted to.  On vacation with her then-boyfriend’s family, she wanted to stay in the hotel room and cry, but she put on her high-necked, conservative swimsuit and pretended to have a good time. The final straw that lead Holly to Lasercare Tattoo Removal, was the birth of her first child.  “I knew I never wanted my children to...
