Laser Tattoo Removal
Laser Tattoo Removal is a simple treatment offered at Loftus Total Skin Care. Our trained and experienced clinicians use a specific laser to break down the ink in the tattoo, which will allow your body’s natural mechanisms to eliminate the rest of the tattoo ink.
The LTSC Experience
After placing protective shields over your eyes, our clinician will use a hand piece against the surface of the skin to target the tattoo. Many of our patients tell us that the discomfort is minimal, comparing it to the snapping of a rubber band against the skin. The size of your tattoo will determine the amount of pulses you will require during your treatment. At each treatment, the tattoo may become progressively lighter and will continue fading over a period of a few weeks. A typical laser tattoo removal session lasts between 15-30 minutes.
Anticipated Recovery & Results
We recommend waiting at least 4-6 weeks between treatments for best results. It can take 5-10 treatments on average to remove a tattoo, but more or less may be required depending on how many colors comprise your tattoo and how the ink reacts to the laser.
