Laser Tattoo Removal FAQs
Can your tattoo be bad for your health?
“There has been a lot of new information and case studies lately on the negative health consequences of tattoo ink and your health…the ink used for tattoos contains heavy metals which causes inflammation that can affect your liver, kidneys, and even your eyes. Let’s face it – tattoos are a foreign material that your body works hard to eliminate every day. I have been performing Laser Tattoo Removal for the past decade with great results and with great health benefits.”

HOW DOES IT WORK?
LaserYourTat treatments use your body’s own defense mechanisms to remove the pigment. When your tattoo was applied, your body encapsulated the ink in the skin’s collagen.
IS IT DANGEROUS?
The LaserYourTat Laser has been granted complete clearance by the FDA. The LaserYourTat Laser is preset to safe levels, and our LaserYourTat Staff follow stringent safety precautions at all times.
DOES IT HURT?
Most patients say, “It feels about the same as getting the tattoo,” and and many require no anesthetic at all.
HOW LONG IS A TREATMENT SESSION?
Depending on the size and location of the tattoo, a typical session takes 5 to 15 minutes. This is typically faster than most other places because out LaserYourTat Laser is the most efficient and precise laser on the market. No expense was spared developing our technology so we can offer the best, most effective, and safest treatments on the market today.
ARE THERE ALTERNATIVES TO THESE SYSTEMS?
Yes, but none as effective as the LaserYourTat Tattoo Removal System. Surgical removal is NOT common and leaves a permanent scar. Other types of lasers, such as argon or carbon dioxide, physically boil away the skin. Again, this is expensive and leaves a scar. Techniques that use acid or abrasion to remove the tattoo are often painful and will result in scarring. Our LaserYourTat Laser allows for minimal to no scarring and is now considered one of THE BEST systems for tattoo removal in the world.
WILL IT REMOVE MY TATTOO COMPLETELY?
That depends on several factors, including the color and depth of the tattoo pigment, as well as your individual response to treatment. While some colors are easier to remove than others, the LaserYourTat Staff utilize multiple wavelenghts of the LaserYourTat Laser System, making it possible to remove all colors, including black, red, orange, yellow, blue, green and purple. Large or particularly thick tattoos, usually applied by a professional tattooist, can require several treatments for successful removal. Re-inked tattoos also require additional treatments because this is like having a double or triple tattoo in one area. Some customers simply want to go over the tattoo with a different one, so it is usually recommended to have 3 or 4 sessions to fade the tattoo enough so your tattoo artist can properly ink the area again.
