How Tattoo Removal Works

Today, 17 percent of those who get tattoos consider getting them removed. Young people in particular get tattoos and do not realize just how permanent they are. Fortunately, technology has advanced, and removal procedures no longer leave scars. With improved laser medicine, tattoos can be completely removed.

Tattoos in the workplace:

In this economic downturn, more and more people are turning to tattoo removal in order to advance their careers. Many are afraid potential employers may see their tattoos and place them into a stereotype.  In 2012, 61 percent of human resource managers claimed that an applicant’s chances of being hired would be hindered by a tattoo.

Removal process:

Dr. Chapman uses a special type of laser that can emit short wavelength light beams in extremely short pulses. The tissue surrounding the tattoo goes undamaged because the laser delivers high intensity light accurately to the tattooed area. The ink gradually disappears over several treatments. Patients usually require 6-10 treatments to remove their tattoo fully depending on the depth, color, and location of the tattoo. Treatments are not painful, and most patients can return to work and their busy schedules directly after a treatment.

How much does treatment cost?:

The cost of tattoo removal varies depending on the size and color of the tattoo and how many treatments are required. Generally a tattoo about 3 inches in diameter done in blue or black ink will cost about $300 per session. LaserMed Skin & Vein Clinic also offers Care Credit Patient Payment plans.
