Remove Your Tattoo
All of our removal sessions are performed by a laser technician to ensure successful and quality results. Laser tattoo removal is the only clinically-proven method of removing a tattoo without leaving scars.
Our technology has evolved to create ultra-short pulses of light energy that shatter ink in a tattoo. We take pride in giving our patient a second chance at clear skin.

WHY GET MY TATTOO REMOVED?
There are many reasons why people decide to get a tattoo removed. The most common answer is that people grow. Your idea of cool when we are younger is often different when you are older. You no longer have to live with a mistake you made when you were younger.
- REMOVE EMBARRASSING TATTOOS
- LOOK MORE PROFESSIONAL
- GAIN ADDITIONAL CONFIDENCE
- LIGHTEN TO COVER TATTOO
- MAKE ROOM FOR NEW TATTOOS
It does not matter your reason for getting your tattoo removed. Dr. Ink Vanish is here to give you your desired results. Many patients have been highly satisfied with their clear outcome.
HOW MANY SESSIONS DOES IT TAKE TO REMOVE A TATTOO?
Most people need 3-4 sessions. Some need more. The number of treatments needed is hard to predict, it depends on many factors such as; the amount of ink used, type of ink, colors, depth of ink, location, age, and your individual immune system.
WILL I HAVE A SCAR?
Most people do not receive scars from the process. If you follow the correct after care techniques,scarring will be rare.
DOES TATTOO REMOVAL HURT?
Some feel no pain at all. Other patients describe the feeling as a light “rubber band popping” sensation. We believe that removing tattoos should be a comfortable process. Most patients describe the feeling as a lot less painful than getting the tattoo.
CAN I LIGHTEN A TATTOO TO GET ANOTHER ON TOP?
Absolutely! Tattoos can sometimes be lightened enough to allow for a cover up tattoo in just one treatment! We recommend that you wait six weeks after your tattoo removal treatment before getting the cover up.
HOW MUCH DOES TATTOO REMOVAL COST?
The factors we consider are size, location, color and the density of the ink. We offer free consultations to successfully determine the best treatment plan for you. Contact us to find out.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER MY TREATMENT?
After your treatment you can expect the treated area to feel similar to having a mild-sunburn. Blisters and scabs can also be a normal response to tattoo removal, however most patients will not experience them. You will need to keep the tattoo area covered with a dressing and ointment to allow the area to heal successfully. Be sure to keep your tattoo protected from the sun. This can help minimize the chances of developing hyper-pigmentation (darkening). Many patients find it helpful to drink a lot of water following the treatment. This will help flush the tiny ink fragments out of the body.
During a tattoo removal procedure, laser light is applied to the tattooed area of the skin. The light is absorbed by the tattoo ink particles, leaving the surrounding skin tissue and chromophores unharmed. The tattoo ink particles absorb the laser energy, heat up, and shatter into smaller ink particles. Days after laser treatment, the body’s immune system flushes away the shattered ink particles, causing the tattoo to fade. Over a series of treatments, more and more of the ink shatters, leaving the skin ink free.
For this process, a bright, quickly-flashing light source called a flashlamp is used to excite atoms. When the atoms of the crystal receive energy, they emit photons that travel at a specific wavelength. Optics and mechanisms, such as the reflective mirror and output coupler, focus the photons into a laser beam. The laser beam carries energy to the skin, and is selectively absorbed by tattoo ink particles. Our lasers are designed to not leave scars.
