About the Treatment
Laser Tattoo Removal
Easily inked, easily removed with the latest technology!
There are many reasons why you would want to remove a tattoo! We’re not here to say what they are, as they are personal to each and everyone. However, we’re here to tell you “fear not”, we’ve got the technology to literally remove it in several sessions.
How does laser tattoo removal work?
With the latest state-of-the-art technologies, removing ink from your skin has become possible. The laser tattoo removal machine utilizes a laser beam that precisely targets and fragments the colors without damaging the surrounding skin.
After that, the body absorbs the pigments and eliminates them naturally, thus showing you fading in the color over the next few weeks.
Because you deserve the golden standard!
We strive to provide you with exceptional treatment, that’s why we utilize the RevLite® laser machine that is built on the original ConBio™ Q-Switched laser technology which is considered to be the golden standard laser technology in administering this procedure.
This machine offers multiple wavelengths to choose from, making is customizable for each tattoo.
How many seasons will I require?
There are various factors that impact the number of sessions.
- Ink composition
- Age of the tattoo
The number of sessions will be discussed during your free consultation with our professionals, as they devise a plan for you.
What to expect?
The Pain Threshold:
Just like getting one, removing a tattoo takes commitment and contemplation!
Laser tattoo removal greatly depends on your pain endurance, especially when the treated space takes over a big part of your body (sleeve tattoo).
Sessions are spaced 3 to 6 weeks apart giving time for the skin regeneration process of the fragmented ink particles.
Lightening of the skin after each session, is obvious, and maintenance helps in the slow but sure elimination of the tattoo and the healing of the skin should be within 10 to 14 days.
Here’s our treatment protocol:
The Do’s and Don’ts of Laser Tattoo Removal.
Before your session:
- Avoid exposing the area to sun or tanning beds or applying self-tanning creams 7 days prior to your session.

After your session
- Apply cold gauzes or ice packs to reduce swelling.
