How It Works

Our advanced laser targets tattoo ink, shatters it, causing the pigment to gradually fade over a series of treatments. Treatments are spaced 4-6 weeks apart. The number of treatments you’ll need depends on a variety of factors, including location, density, colors and skin type. Typically our estimates range from as few as 3 to 10 or more.

Most treatments last just a minute or so and feel like a rubber band repeatedly snapping on the skin. While not a great feeling, it’s very tolerable. We also utilize the Zimmer Chiller that numbs but the skin before, during, and after treatment for minimal discomfort.


That’s just a quick overview. Our team is here to answer any questions and will provide a full overview during a free consultation.

Industry Leading Guarantees

We guarantee our work. If you pay in advance for all the sessions we estimate it will take to remove your tattoo, we’ll refund any unnecessary treatments or provide 6 months of additional treatments for free!

Also, most people think tattoo removal is much more painful than it actually is. To quell those fears, we’ll do a test area shot first. If you can’t handle it (which has never happened), we won’t proceed and you won’t be charged.
