How many treatments will I need?
GONE Laser Tattoo Removal determines the number of treatments you will need based on a variety of factors. These factors include your skin type, tattoo age, tattoo location, ink colors, ink depth, ink density, type of tattoo (amateur vs. professional), patient health, and pre-existing scarring. Most patients need a minimum of 5 to 10 treatments for complete removal. Patients interested in lightening their tattoo may only need 3 to 4 treatments.
How long until I see complete results?
The answer to this question varies per client and their individual tattoo. Tattoos that are heavily saturated with ink may take more time to fade than an older, less pigmented tattoo. All treatments are spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart to give your tattoo enough time to heal before its next laser session. This healing duration plus the number of treatments you will need is typically how long it will take to achieve your desired results.
How long does a treatment take?
Laser tattoo removal treatment sessions are very quick. Contrary to tattoo application, laser tattoo removal takes as little as 1 to 15 minutes depending on the size of the tattoo being treated.
Does the laser hurt?
The majority of patients compare the laser sensation to a rubberband continuously snapping against the skin. While the laser is tolerable, some patients may be less tolerant of pain than others. To accommodate all our patients, GONE Laser Tattoo Removal has invested in the most advanced skin numbing technology for the best pain management throughout Kansas City and surrounding cities. The Zimmer Cryo cooling machine numbs the skin before, during, and after your treatment, providing long-lasting comfort throughout your entire visit.
How much does a treatment cost?
GONE Laser Tattoo Removal determines the cost for a single treatment based on the size of the tattoo being treated. During your free laser tattoo removal consultation, our Kansas City clinic will assess your tattoo and figure out a quote based on your needs. We also provide treatment packages and discounts to help you save.
Are there any side effects to the laser?
Laser tattoo removal is the safest method for removing unwanted or regretful ink. Our FDA-approved Duality laser will give you the best results, no matter your skin type. The most common side effects clients may experience are temporary swelling, redness, itchiness, blistering, scabbing, and skin discoloration. All of these side effects are natural reactions to the laser and positive signs that your immune system is removing the shattered ink from your skin. With proper aftercare, your skin should heal flawlessly.
Aftercare is the most important step towards getting great results. GONE Laser Tattoo Removal promises to use the safest protocols and most advanced laser technology to ensure you receive the best results throughout Kansas City. We ask that you do your part by following proper aftercare instructions to prevent any unwanted side effects or infection from forming.
Clients will receive a detailed aftercare instruction sheet to take home after treatment. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns regarding your tattoo after it has been treated.
