The only way to accurately determine tattoo removal cost will be to visit a removal specialist. There are several factors that determine what the total cost will be. These can include the size of the tattoo, where it is located, and what colors were used.
Feel free to ask to see before and after tattoo removal photographs when you attend a removal consultation. These photographs serve to give you a good idea of what to expect when you undergo the removal process, and offer you are closer look at how well the removal process actually works. Photographic sets can show you the progression of progress over a series of treatments. Usually several treatments are required.
Once your tattoo has been examined, the specialist will be able to determine how many treatments may be needed in order to achieve the desired results. Do not be surprised if several will be needed. There is a very real reason as to why tattoos are referred to as permanent. They are made to last a lifetime, and are not always easy to remove.
Lasers are used in the removal process. Q-switching, or powerful pulsed laser light is used to break up the color and allow it to disperse. The treatments are generally not considered painful, but the skin may become red and sensitive for a short time after each treatment is completed.
