Frequently Asked Questions


These are the most common questions that our customers have asked us about laser tattoo removal and our services.

The Ink Eraser’s advanced picosecond technology removes tattoos by breaking up the pigment colors with a high-intensity laser light beam. Picosecond technology is one trillionth of a second which causes the laser to fragment the ink into even smaller particles so your body can be break the ink down even faster. Black tattoo pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths, making it the easiest color to treat. Other colors can only be treated by selected lasers based upon the pigment color.

Yes, lasers can remove tattoos completely. In fact, lasers are the safest, most effective tool to remove unwanted tattoos. However, you may need to receive several sessions before the tattoo is removed completely.

The tattoo removal process is reliant on the body’s lymphatic system as it absorbs the ink molecules and removes them from our bodies. As soon as the treated area has been zapped with the laser, your body’s immune system is triggered to start ridding itself of the pigment fragments.

This is the magic question and it really depends on a lot of factors. How dense the ink is? How heavy the tattoo artist hand was? What is in the ink? Homemade ink typically removes in as little as 1-3 sessions. Where is your tattoo located on your body? Anything far from the heart such as fingers, toes, ankles and lower legs can take longer to remove because there is less circulation and is farther from the heart. If your tattoo is raised and thick the laser will have to break through many layers and the ink will start dissolving over the series of laser treatments.

Generally, amateur or homemade tattoos may be removed within 1 to 3 sessions, while professional tattoos done with harder inks can require anywhere from 8 to 15 treatments. It is possible for some tattoos to require more than 20 laser treatments. If the tattoo is very dark and large.

Light Ink – For this type of ink we recommend 1-3 sessions.
Medium Ink – For this type of ink we recommend 3-6 sessions.
Dark & Dense Ink – For this type of ink we recommend 6-12 sessions.
Extremely Dark Ink – For this type of ink we recommend 8-20 sessions.

Green is one of the hardest colors to remove followed by light blue and purple. Neon colors can be difficult to remove and typically require multiple treatments with the ruby laser. As a general rule the greater the contrast between the color of the tattoo pigment and your skin, the better the result.

The answer is YES, it is 100% possible to come in for 1-5 sessions to lighten your old ink to get a fresh clean cover up. The ink Eraser’s advanced picosecond technology can safely lighten old ink without causing damage to the surrounding skin or tissue.

Luckily technology has come a long way and there is less downtime than when we originally started removing tattoos over 14 years ago. Yes, you heard that right we have been removing tattoos since the very first technology hit the market. The laser fragments the ink into tiny particles and it does not damage the skin or surrounding tissues with our long pulse technology.
After your session you will experience minor swelling and redness and you may apply ice packs off and on throughout the night after your session. We recommend applying Aquaphor 3 times a day. In some rare cases you may experience swelling and bumps that may itch, you can take Benadryl and apply hydrocortisone cream to the area. WE do not recommend covering the tattoo and letting it breathe is a better solution. In some rare cases you may experience blisters it is important to keep the are clean and apply Neosporin. Aftercare instructions will be fully explained at the time of your appointment. Call us with any questions 602-777-1693
