Step 1: FREE Consultation
Your first appointment with us will be scheduled as a Consultation, which is conducted by one of our Certified Laser Technicians (CLT’s). There is no fee for the Consultation.
  • Upon arrival, we will have you complete the required paperwork (Release Form, Medical History Form & Privacy Form), & we will copy your valid government issued identification.
  • We will then take a digital photograph your tattoo for a base-line reference which will be stored in your client file.
  • A digital photo will be taken at the beginning of each appointment to track the progress of your removal process.
  • We will never share your photos (or any other personal info) without your consent.

Once your paperwork is done & your tattoo has been documented, our CLT will assess the following:

  • Size of your tattoo (in square inches).
  • Your health status (your body does 90% of the work).
  • Ink type/depth/age/application technique (used to determine difficulty/duration for complete removal).
  • Cost of each tattoo removal treatment & approximate number of treatments needed.
  • If you or the CLT has any questions or concerns about the success of treatment, a “TEST SPOT” may be conducted before the entire tattoo is treated.
  • The CLT will explain the treatment process in-depth & will answer any questions  or concerns you might have. 
  • It is important to disclose on the Medical Questionnaire all medications you are currently taking as some medications can cause adverse reactions.

In most cases, there will be enough time at the end of the Consultation to move directly into your first treatment if you’d like to do so.

You also have the option of scheduling your first treatment out for another date, or gathering the consultation information & thinking about it until you’re ready to move forward with treatment.

Step 2: Before Each Treatment

In preparation of your laser removal treatments PLEASE:

  • Avoid sun exposure for at least 1 month before treatment.
  • If you have a “fresh” tan or a spray tan, we will not be able to treat you due to possible hypo-pigmentation complications.
  • Before treatment, you may take plain Tylenol, but avoid aLL products containing Aspirin as they can increase the risk of bruising and/or bleeding.
  • Plan your laser removal appointment for a day & time when you can lay low after your treatment & not have to perform activities that could potentially raise your body temperature.
  • Shave any hair in the procedure area the day before treatment (if applicable).
  • Do not apply AHA’s or other topical acid products on skin.
Step 3: Post-Treatment

Your CLT will provide you with verbal and written post-treatment care instructions & schedule your next appointment (unless you prefer to schedule online).

        Treatments can be scheduled no sooner than weeks apart.

  • Keep the area clean & dry while it is healing.
  • To avoid blistering DO NOT RAISE YOUR CORE BODY TEMPERATURE for 72 hours (yes, 3 days!) after treatment.
  • Depending on the size of the treatment area, heat from the laser can remain in your body for up to 72 hours after treatment. 
  • Avoid any activities that could potentially raise your body temp during this critical time, including:   
  • Direct & Indirect Sunlight
  • Working Out
  • Sexy Time
  • Mowing the Lawn (or Shoveling)
  • Hot Tubs, Saunas, etc.
  • Apply ice packs or cool compresses as necessary for the first 24 hours after treatment to help reduce discomfort & inflammation & prevent blistering.
  • Apply 100% Aloe Vera Gel to the area, if needed, to reduce discomfort & inflammation.
  • AVOID SUN EXPOSURE on the treated area for 2 months (yes, 60 days!) after the procedure. 
  • If it’s necessary to be in the sun, either keep the area completely covered or use sunblock with an SPF of 50 or higher. 
  • Be sure to use a sunblock product that contains Zinc Oxide as an active ingredient.)

Remember: if you arrive for your appointment with a “fresh” tan or a spray tan, we will not treat you due to possible hypo-pigmentation complications.

  • IF a blister or scab should form, do not pick at it, or allow the skin to become scraped, as this will create an open wound that may result in infection and/or scarring. 
  • Avoid shaving the treated area until it is completely healed.
  • DO NOT APPLY any make-up, creams, or medication to the area for 48 hours post-treatment, unless it is suggested by our staff.
