Are you experiencing tattoo regret? Thanks to innovations in laser technology, removing a tattoo is quicker and less painful than it once was. However, since laser technology is involved, cost is an important consideration. But how much does laser tattoo removal cost.
How laser tattoo removal works
The laser energy selectively targets the tattoo ink in the skin. The ink particles absorb the laser energy, and the resulting heat breaks down the particles into tiny fragments. These fragments are cleared away by the body’s immune system in the weeks following treatment.
How much does laser tattoo removal cost
The cost of laser tattoo removal can range from $200 to $500. The variability of the cost is due to factors such as color, size, and the type of technology.
Factors that affect the cost of laser tattoo removal
When it comes to laser tattoo removal, colour is a prime consideration, because some colours are harder to remove than others, and will therefore require more treatments. Black is the easiest tattoo ink to remove, because it absorbs the laser wavelength easily. Consequently, all-black tattoos are usually the least expensive to treat.
The type of technology used, is another factor that can affect the cost of laser tattoo removal. PicoWay is an advanced laser that removes tattoos faster and more efficiently than older technologies. PicoWay is a high-energy picosecond laser that removes a wide range of tattoo ink colours, and is safe for use on all skin tones and skin types.
In addition, larger tattoos typically cost more to remove because they require more laser time than smaller tattoos.
