LASER TATTOO REMOVAL FAQs
Anyone who has a tattoo that they regret or no longer desire to have a specific tattoo, or a tattoo in a location that is preventing the ability to obtain certain jobs.
The Enlighten III laser has the ability to work on different skin types due to ability to change the wavelength to target several colors. Because this machine has multiple different wavelengths of color with the ability to remove a broader range of colors, such as greens and blues, which are harder to remove with older treatment options.
In order to give you accurate removal pricing one of our nurses need to see the tattoo. The cost is based on the size of the tattoo and the number of sessions required.
This includes the ink color used, the amount, density, age of the tattoo, professional/amateur, body location. Therefore it is very difficult to quote you over the phone.
We offer free consultation with free on site parking so if you come in to see one of our nurses we can put together a customized treatment plan that includes pricing.
The length of the procedure is based upon the size and color of the tattoo being treated.
Yes, shave the treatment area before the session.
The number of treatments is dependent on a variety of factors such as: depth of the tattoo, colors in the tattoo, and age of the tattoo. Some low-density older or faded tattoos may clear in as few as 2-3 sessions.
Newer, dark, high-density tattoos may require more sessions. Not all tattoos will fully clear. Tattoos located on limbs and extremities will take more sessions based on distance from the heart.
If treating tattoo ink in scar tissue (including scarring associated with the tattoo placement), higher frequencies and more sessions may be required.
For the most part, the tattoo will be completely removed with the laser therapy, however colors such as green and blue are more difficult to completely remove, but have much better results with the enlighten laser than previous treatments.
The tattoo may also be lightened without full removal if you are considering having a coverup. If you want the coverup to have a better outcome with lightening the previous tattoo. The Enlighten laser has superior precision, which means that you may also have a portion of your tattoo removed, while leaving the rest in place.
Most people must be at least 18 or older to obtain a tattoo. However in some circumstances, parents may sign for a tattoo as young as 16 in which case teenagers would be eligible for tattoo removal.
- You should not use suntan or use self-tanners for at least 4 weeks prior to treatment.
- Avoid treatments that may irritate the skin (depilatories, harsh chemicals, etc.) for 1-2 weeks prior to treatment.
- Ensure that the treatment area is clean and shaved.
Laser tattoo removal sessions should be scheduled at least 6-8 weeks apart to allow the skin to be fully healed prior to re-treatment. 8-10 weeks is the minimum recommended interval.
For laser treatments extended time in between sessions may improve response by allowing fragmented ink to re-aggregate.
During the procedure, mild discomfort is noted, and it is typically described as a rubber band snapping against the skin. If this is more than discomfort and you do not feel comfortable, a topical anesthetic cream or gel is available and may be applied in order to complete the procedure.
For larger tattoos there will be discomfort and anesthesia is recommended for those with a lower pain tolerance to decrease discomfort.
The use of ice can also help ease any discomfort and reduce both swelling and redness that may appear on the area treated.
The effects of laser tattoo removal are permanent.
Avoid sun exposure until the area is fully healed, which usually takes between 2 to 4 weeks following the laser tattoo removal treatment session.
If you must go out in the sun, please cover the area until healed and use a broad spectrum sunscreen.
Results can be seen after the first treatment, and should continue to be seen with every treatment thereafter.
Scabbing over the treatment area is also expected and may last 7-14 days. If this occurs, do not pick scabs, and avoid scrubbing the treated area when bathing, gently cleanse the area with soap and water, and pat dry with a clean towel.
All normal activities may be resumed right after treatment as long as the skin is protected from UV light.
Contact the physician's office if any of the following occur:
- Bleeding that soaks the dressing, or bleeding that happens after the first 24 hours
- Increased redness or swelling
- Uncomfortable blisters
- Yellowish or greenish drainage
- Persistent pain that last more than 24 hours

Tattoo artists use needles to insert ink and dyes into the lower layer of skin, called the the dermis.

This has led to many people seeking out tattoo removal. With technological advancements in laser technology this procedure has become very popular. However there exist a lot of cheap alternatives that can cause blistering and permanent damage to the skin.
How effective is laser tattoo removal?
Tattoo removal is a highly effective treatment. There are multiple different lasers that offer tattoo removal and they all range in efficacy.
At Miami Skin Spa we use Cutera's Enlighten III Laser. This is a state of the art laser for tattoo removal. It also has the capability to treat brown spots, acne scars, and other pigment issues.
It combines multiple modalities into one laser, such as targeting several different wavelengths of color and both nanosecond and picosecond pulse capability.
These combinations make tattoo removal ideal and achievable on any skin type without any damage to the surrounding skin. The once difficult blue and green pigmented inks can be targeted with the enlighten laser due to the multiple wavelength technology.
The enlighten laser can prove to have quality results in a minimal number of sessions. Results can be seen within days of a procedure. The enlighten laser can treat tattoos that have been previously treated for removal without success. For quality, speed, and efficiency in removing your unsightly or bad decision tattoo, look no further than with the Enlighten III Laser by Cutera.
How many sessions does it take to remove a tattoo?
Most tattoo's will require between 5 and 10 sessions to permanently remove the tattoo. The bigger the tattoo the more sessions will be required.
The number of sessions is also dependent on the technology within the laser used. The more expensive the session the better the laser being used will be.
How long after laser tattoo removal will tattoo fade?
The tattoo will start to fade 1-3 weeks after the treatment. The fading of the tattoo will continue for 4-12 weeks depending on the quality of the machine.
Our laser tattoo removal sessions are spread 8-10 weeks apart. The longer between sessions the better as it allows for fragmented ink to re aggregate making the next session more successful.
How does laser tattoo removal work?
The lasers remove the ink in the top layer of the skin into small particles that the body is able to absorb. After several sessions (depending on factors such as color, size, location, skin tone, etc.) the ink will be completely absorbed and the tattoo removed. For people who have small tattoos fewer sessions are required.
There are many types of lasers and laser technology that claim to remove unwanted tattoos. However our method and device is universally recognized as the best in the industry. Our laser technology is pain-free and completely safe to the patient.
Our procedures allow for minimum stress on the skin possible and the least chance of scarring and works on darker skin as well. We can even remove any color of ink, including the previously difficult to remove green and blue.

LASER TREATMENT OPTIONS
ENLIGHTEN III LASER
The Enlighten III Laser uses nano and picosecond laser technology to customize skin treatments.
At Miami Skin Spa, we use the Enlighten III Laser which is the most advanced system available. This is what makes us superior to other locations around the world. We can provide tattoo removal with no pain and no damage to the skin.
Cutera's enlighten platform uses both patented heat and vibrational technology to safely, quickly, and effectively remove difficult tattoos without any damage to the surrounding skin. It is able to treat tattoos of any color, even the once difficult blue and green inks, on any skin type and skin color.
By using two different laser frequencies, the enlighten is effectively able to target different types of particles. Essentially, larger tattoo and pigment molecules respond more effectively to longer pulse durations, so as the particles get smaller being able to switch to shorter wavelengths allows more efficient removal of pigment.

I’ve been here twice for tattoo removal, I’ve had great results and the staff is amazing. I don’t think I’ll need a third session. Overall I do recommend coming here, Maria and Jasmine were helpful and made this process easy.
