Laser Tattoo Removal
Effective and Safe Solution for Multi-Colored Tattoos
What is Laser Tattoo Removal?
Tattoo removal using methods such as cutting the tattoo out, scrubbing the tattoo off using a motorized metal brush or acid peels are a thing of the past. Lasers now offer a better, more patient-friendly solution! Laser tattoo removal has become the standard treatment for tattoo removal because it offers an effective alternative that is low risk, bloodless and has minimal side effects. With laser now even the most complex multi-colored tattoos can be removed.
How does LTR work?
With the right laser, all common tattoo colors can be removed, black and dark tones, blues and sky blues, reds and tans, and greens. Laser affects the tattoo with very short and strong laser pulses that penetrate deep into the skin, without injuring the top layers. These pulses are then absorbed by the pigments in the ink which breaks them up into smaller particles. These are then naturally absorbed by the body’s own immune system.
Safe and effective, no bleeding or scars, removes all tattoo colors for amateur and professional tattoos, no anesthesia, minimal side effects.
Process & Treatment
The number of treatments depends on the size of your tattoo as well as its location, depth, and color. This can be anywhere from 4-6+ treatments.
There is some immediate results noticed, while the tattoo will also lighten over time and with multiple treatments.

At Captivating Aesthetics, the first step is to book a consultation with our team experts. During this consultation, a brief medical and relevant aesthetic history will be taken. You will have the chance to discuss your treatment concerns, your treatment goals, your fears, and concerns regarding the actual treatment itself. Your full treatment plan, along with expected maintenance will then be discussed.
A detailed series of photographs will be taken at every visit to compare your results to your baseline pictures, as well as monitoring progression of results.
Once you have a treatment plan in place, photos are taken, and you come in for your appointment you will be escorted to the laser room. Tattoo removal by laser feels like a rubber band snapping the skin. The tattoo will fade slowly between treatments as your body removes the remainders of the tattoo pigment.
Photographs may be done immediately after the procedure. You will also receive specific after-care directions. The most important of these is avoiding direct sun exposure, compliance to SPF application and re-application.
Tattoo removal pricing depends on the area being treated. The best way to find out pricing is to call the office or discuss during a consultation.
