The Dangers of Tattoo Removal at Home

With so many advertisements touting at-home tattoo removal, you may be tempted to save money by taking matters into your own hands. However, the DIY tattoo removal method can result in serious consequences, including:

  • Skin infections
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Toxic chemical exposure
  • Damage to surrounding skin tissue
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Incomplete and unsightly results

Alternatively, laser tattoo removal performed by an experienced professional offers a reliable, proven approach to reclaiming your skin.

What Is PicoSure® Laser Tattoo Removal?

One of the safest and most advanced laser tattoo removal methods available today is the Picosure laser. It features innovative “pigment-seeking technology” that breaks tattoo ink into tiny particles, which your body gradually and naturally eliminates. Picosure’s quick, controlled energy bursts last just a picosecond and are safe for most skin types. What makes it a game-changer—especially compared to at-home “remedies”—is its ability to fade dark, colorful ink without compromising your surrounding skin.

Is Professional Laser Tattoo Removal Expensive?

While professional laser tattoo removal is typically pricier than tattoo removal at home, it’s much more affordable than you may think—laser tattoo removal at our practice starts at less than $100 per square inch. Ultimately, the price and number of sessions depend on your tattoo’s size and color intensity. Most patients require 5 to 10 treatment sessions about 8 to 12 weeks apart to achieve their desired results.

The Benefits of PicoSure® Laser for Tattoo Removal

In addition to being more affordable than you think, professional laser tattoo removal is much safer and more effective than trying to remove permanent ink yourself. Patients who visit us for tattoo removal reap these key benefits:
