Have questions about the laser tattoo removal process? Check out frequently asked questions we get at Clear Out Ink below!
How many laser tattoo removal sessions will be needed?
The amount of laser tattoo removal sessions depends on your tattoo’s:
- Ink content
- Ink color
- Skin type
- Age of the tattoo
An amateur tattoo may need 3-6 treatments. A professional, multi-colored tattoo might take 3-12 or more in specific cases. For best results, each session will be treated 6-8 weeks apart. One purpose of our free consultation is to discuss the amount of treatments necessary to remove your tattoo. You will have a clearer, more precise number of treatments after the consultation.
How much is the consultation?
- Absolutely FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!
At Clear Out Ink Laser Tattoo Removal, we utilize a chart specific to individual needs based upon the factors above that will give a more exact number of treatments at the time of your consultation.
Can most tattoos be treated?
Yes. Whether your tattoo was completed professionally or completed by an amateur, most tattoos do extremely well with our laser treatments. Some colors or pigments, especially some blues, greens, and yellows are more difficult to remove than other colors and can be a bit more stubborn, but even these particular colors usually respond well with additional treatments. Do note that black light and glow in the dark inks cannot be treated with laser treatments.
What separates Clear Out Ink Laser Tattoo Removal from other laser tattoo removal facilities is that our technology allows us to remove a full spectrum of colors while others have only the technology to remove certain colors of the spectrum. Please view our before & afters to get a better idea of what types of tattoos we are capable of removing.
Is it painful?
Some patients state that laser tattoo removal causes some discomfort, while others none. Most treatments are completed within minutes. The laser operator will complete a test area to see your pain threshold, and will pause the treatment if you feel any discomfort. Ice packs as well as our Zimmer chilling system, which distributes cooling air during the treatment, are used to pre-treat the area. Patients experience little discomfort with these accommodations.
What is the Zimmer cooling system?
Clear Out Ink utilizes the Zimmer Cryo 5 cooling system during laser tattoo removal procedures to ensure that clients are comfortable before and during the procedure. The Zimmer Cooling system minimizes pain and thermal injury during laser treatments. Unlike other cooling methods, the Zimmer system cools the epidermis before, during, and after any non-invasive laser treatment. The system has 6 different airflow rates that allow the operator to customize the intensity of the cooling for different situations. The Zimmer Cryo 5 is the winner of the Editor’s Choice Award for Best Stand Alone Epidermal Cooling Device and used specifically by Clear Out Ink to maximize patient comfort and minimize the side effects of laser tattoo removal. Ensuring your comfort and providing results are our highest priorities!
What kind of laser equipment is used?
Clear Out Ink uses a Quanta Q-Plus C, the only true 3-wave length Q-switched system available in the world. It has the capabilities to remove a full spectrum of colors, administering more power with less adverse reaction. Other laser tattoo removal equipment involves an outdated circular light that has unevenly distributed energy and hot spots that create inconsistencies and heat stacking. These older technologies have a higher chance of causing bulla or blistering of the skin, which then leads to scarring. Quanta Q-Plus C’s square “top hat” style laser beam distributes the energy evenly in the tissue, leaving no hot spots and providing twice the energy to break up your tattoo’s pigment so that the body can absorb it naturally.
Are there any medical conditions or medical history that can prevent me from being a candidate for treatment?
You may not be a good candidate for laser tattoo removal treatments if anything in the list below applies to you:
- Allergic reactions to red dye
- Taking Accutane (must be off of Accutane for 6 months)
- Other rare conditions
