Laser Tattoo Removal Cost
What Factors Contribute to Tattoo Removal Cost?
There are just a handful of factors that will determine the ultimate cost of erasing your tattoo. There might be unique circumstances surrounding your personal tattoo removal, so make sure that you consult with our team to get a ballpark of exact costs.
The Number of Treatments
It makes sense that the more sessions you need to complete the tattoo removal, the more you will wind up paying in the long run. In general, many people need six sessions to remove the tattoo.
This can vary depending on the coloration of the tattoo and how intricate the work is. At Still Waters Day & Medical Spa, we use PiQo4 technology to specifically address and eradicate all of the different colors on your tattoo, streamlining the process.
Your Kirby-Desai Scale Score
The Kirby-Desai Scale was designed to give tattoo removal technicians a good idea of how intricate the removal process would be. It rates your tattoo on a number of different factors, including the detail of coloration in the tattoo, and the amount of scarring around the site itself.
Your tattoo’s physical location could also impact its removal cost, as some areas of the body are more difficult to work on than others. Generally speaking, the higher your Kirby-Desai Scale score, the more costly the removal will be.
The Size of Your Tattoo
Bigger tattoos cost more to remove, although size is not the determining factor for price alone. A larger all-black tattoo could cost less to remove than a smaller multi-colored one. However, in general, if you have a large tattoo that you want to be erased, be prepared to spend a little bit extra. You can also remove larger tattoos in segments as well, cutting back on some costs and spreading out the process a little bit. This could ease your upfront financial burden.
What Kind of Skin You Have
In general, tattoos are easier to remove from lighter skin. If you are fair with a dark or black tattoo, you can probably count on spending less money on the removal. Skin coloration alone doesn’t determine how cost-effective or easy the overall treatment will be, though. There are other factors, like scarring, that come into play. Talk to one of our professionals for a full assessment.
How You Get It Removed
There are plenty of ways to get your tattoo removed, but one of the easiest and least painful ones is via laser. Unlike costly plastic surgery or painful chemical removal, laser treatments are gentle, effective, and kinder to your bank account. Still Waters Day & Medical Spa proudly uses the revolutionary PiQo4 treatment for tattoo removal, targeting all areas of the tattoo and erasing them for good.
PiQo4 Laser Treatment
PiQo4 is a cutting-edge treatment that can remove any colored tattoo from anywhere on your body. It utilizes new technology to eradicate pigments and deeply remove any signs of the tattoo during several short treatment sessions that are far more comfortable than they were in the past. We stand behind PiQo4 and are proud to offer it to our valued customers.
How Does It Work?
PiQo4 combines the potent technology of both Pico and Nano laser treatments to get deep into the skin and remove all of the pigments of your old tattoo. These twin technologies are so effective because they treat two different aspects of tattoo removal.
The Pico pulses identify and sweep away smaller bits of color and ink from your skin. The Nano pulses delve deep into your epidermis and make sure that all the ink is removed. With both Nano and Pico technologies working together, your old tattoo does not stand a chance. These lasers will erase any sign of your previous ink, effectively and for good.
Both the Nano and Pico lasers are specifically designed to hone in on specific aspects of the tattoo that needs to be removed. The lasers are targeted, and the pulses are short and deliberate, breaking deep into the skin. The PiQo4 system can generate ten times more energy than standard lasers, making it far more efficient.
This precision targeting also means that you will spend far less time under the lasers, shorting up each treatment session and making them more pleasant for you.
One of the problems with previous tattoo removal technology was that it was effective on black or dark ink, but less effective on multi-colored ink. The PiQo4 system has an ingenious way to deal with this concern.
It employs smart wavelength technology that runs on four different wavelengths so that all shades and colors of your old tattoo are targeted and removed. You won’t even have a shadow of your tattoo left once you have finished with your PiQo4 treatments. You will just have smooth, lovely skin.
One of the biggest complaints that candidates have with traditional tattoo removal treatments is that they are unpleasant and take a lot of time. PiQo4 treatments change the game by getting the removal process done quickly and gently.
PiQo4 treatments generally yield far more substantial results in a quicker period of time, with deeply penetrating lasers that rapidly identify the coloration spots on your old tattoo and remove them. After all of your treatments are done, you will be left with dewy, smooth, flawless skin.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Laser Tattoo Removal?
Most people are good candidates for tattoo removal, especially since technology has evolved to the point where it is relatively risk-free and painless to undergo the treatment. However, there are a few factors that make some people better candidates than others. If you have fairer skin with a dark or black tattoo, your results will generally be better and quicker. This is due to the fact that the lasers simply have to erase one color of the pigment.
The density of your tattoo and the amount of intricate design also matters. If your tattoo is a singular dense piece, it’s easier to remove than if there are many elements that need to be individually erased. With modern technology and expert care, laser tattoo removal can remove just about any tattoo. If it’s a trickier bit of work, you might need to come in for a few extra treatments. This will all be explained to you in your initial consultation.
Although it is not an exact science, we have noticed that those who are in better health, to begin with, tend to have more positive results from this treatment. The reason for this is because laser treatments work with your immune system to dispose of unwanted elements of your tattoo. If you are relatively healthy, eat well, active, and don’t smoke, your tattoo removal process should be easier. That is not to say that you are out of luck if you are not in the best shape physically. You might just need a few extra treatments or longer sessions to erase your tattoo fully.
What Should I Expect From the Treatment?
This cutting-edge treatment is much more gentle on your body than previous tattoo removal techniques. When you opt for PiQo4 laser treatment, you are getting the best technology available, and your experience and recovery time will both be drastically improved. Each treatment will take roughly 20 minutes or less, and there is virtually no recovery time after you leave the treatment room. You can immediately go back to your normal life.
Some patients do report that the treated area is slightly red and warm to the touch after treatment, but that certainly does not last for longer than an hour or two. If you experience a slight amount of redness, simply put a cool ice pack on the area and rest. You should be feeling back to your old self within a matter of hours. If the redness persists, or you experience any additional uncomfortable symptoms, do not hesitate to reach out to our staff. We can walk you through whatever you need.
