What is Laser Tattoo Removal?
Laser tattoo removal is an advanced laser treatment that eliminates ink pigments by breaking down the ink particles. The laser tattoo removal device delivers light energy into the ink pigments, then vibrates to break them down. As the body heals from this process, the immune system will flush out the ink pigments, resulting in a fading of the treated tattoo. While laser tattoo removal has been around for several years, the ClearLift device from the Alma Harmony XL Pro offers the most comprehensive and effective tattoo removal solution currently available.
What are the Benefits of Laser Tattoo Removal?
The clear benefit of laser tattoo removal is the ability to fade or completely remove the appearance of an unwanted tattoo. While other laser tattoo removal options exist, only the ClearLift device from the Alma Harmony XL pro offers a laser tattoo removal treatment with minimal risk of scarring or hyperpigmentation. Simply put, this means patients can expect better results than they would get from other laser tattoo removal systems.
How Much Does Laser Tattoo Removal Cost?
The cost of your laser tattoo removal treatment will depend on the number of treatments necessary to produce your desired results, which can vary depending on the color of the skin, color of the ink and size of the tattoo. The treatments typically cost between $200 and $500 per treatment session. We will discuss the exact cost of your treatment during your initial consultation. In an effort to make our treatments more affordable, we are proud to offer a variety of financing options.
What Can I Expect During My Laser Tattoo Removal Treatment?
The laser tattoo removal treatment requires numbing beforehand, which we will apply 30 minutes before the treatment begins. As treatment begins, the ClearLift device will be used to deliver pulses of light energy into the targeted area. This may cause some minor discomfort, but the preliminary numbing should make the treatment essentially painless. The length of treatment will vary depending on the size of the tattoo being treated.
What Can I Expect After My Laser Tattoo Removal Treatment?
After the laser tattoo removal treatment, you can expect the treated tattoo to fade in the following weeks. This will happen as the body’s immune system eliminates the ink pigments and recovers from treatment. However, keep in mind that the number of treatments needed to completely remove a tattoo can vary significantly. Most patients require a series of 8 to 12 treatment sessions, received every 8 to 10 weeks.
