Precision LaserTM Answers Your Most Common Questions
Precision Laser Tattoo Removal has received many questions over the years about the tattoo removal process and other related concerns. For your convenience, we have listed answers to your most common questions here. If you have an inquiry or concern, please contact us at our Toronto or London clinic for assistance.
Q: Does it hurt during and after the treatment?
Q: How much will laser tattoo removal cost?
Q: How safe is it? Are there any side effects?
A: Our treatments are only administered by Certified Laser Technicians. The PicoSure™ and MedLite® C6 are safe, non-invasive lasers that provide minimal risk of scarring, skin pigment changes, and discomfort during treatment.
It is common to notice white blotches on your skin immediately after each pulse of the laser. The area around the tattoo could also appear red and swollen. This is a natural part of the process and will disappear over time. To avoid infection and to maximize results, keep the treated area clean and away from sun exposure.
Q: How can I be sure that it will be successful?
A: In our experience virtually all tattoos can be safely and effectively removed. Results depend on variables such as your skin type, the size and location of the tattoo, and the composition of the tattoo itself. In most cases, visible results are achieved after the first treatment, although several treatments are typically required. Your consultation will help to establish the approximate number of treatments required to achieve your expected results.
Q: Is everyone a good candidate for tattoo removal?
A: While most people are good candidates for tattoo removal, certain conditions may make you unsuitable (for example, pregnancy). Precision Laser™ Tattoo Removal does a thorough pre-treatment health assessment to ensure you’re a good candidate.
Q: Are there other ways to remove tattoos? What about creams?
Q: Why the MedLite® C6 laser?
A: We often hear of other establishments claiming that they have the “latest” or “best” technology. Before opening in 2010, we looked at all lasers available on the market, seeking the best laser for tattoo removal. The MedLite® C6 was a clear winner. There simply is no laser more effective with such a low risk of scarring. It also happens to work for all skin types. We figured as tattoo removal specialists, we’d better not offer the second or third best laser. Since that time, the PicoSure™ laser came to market, which completely changed the game of tattoo removal, removing tattoos just as safely in half the treatments. We were first to invest to give our clients the best..
