Tattoo Removal

Tattoo Removal

When you receive a tattoo, ink is placed under the topmost layer of the skin, which is meant to be permanent. If you are unsatisfied with the appearance of a tattoo or no longer wish to have a certain tattoo this is a problem. Thankfully, there is a solution! Laser tattoo removal is an effective way to remove unwanted tattoos from the skin for good! Our Spectrum laser uses top-notch “Gold-Standard” technology to remove unwanted tattoos. Our laser targets specific ink colors, which breaks the ink down into tiny particles, which are eventually flushed away by the body’s immune system. Tattoo Removal is done in a series of treatments, each recommended to be done 6-8 weeks apart. When you come in to have a complimentary consultation to remove your tattoo, you will receive an estimate of the time it will take and the price, based on your tattoo’s size and colors and whether or not you want it fully removed or just lightened so another tattoo can be applied over it. Most tattoos will not completely disappear, but they will become extremely faded and not noticeable after treatments. 

Why is Tattoo Removal Better at First State MedSpa than at a Tattoo Removal Center?

Tattoo removal can be a painful procedure and difficult for some clients to sit through. Here, at First State MedSpa we have a Surgical Physician at the helm, who is available to give our tattoo patients an injection of a local anesthetic, like Lidocaine in the treatment area, so you will not feel a thing! Most Tattoo Removal Clinics do not have physicians on location and therefore use only a topical anesthetic ointment to help relieve the pain of the laser. However, topicals are not nearly as effective as an injection of a local anesthetic. Here at First State MedSpa, you will be awake, calm and feel little to no pain during our Tattoo Removal treatments!

Are newer tattoos easier to remove?

Actually, older tattoos are easier to remove. Newer tattoos need time to heal before treatment.

Can I take ibuprofen after tattoo removal?

Yes. Avoid Aspirin as it can cause bruising.
