How Does Tattoo Removal Work?

At The Fountain Clinic in Cleveland, we use state-of-the-art lasers to perform safe and effective tattoo removal. The lasers break up the tattoo ink, allowing it to absorb into the skin, where your body can process and get rid of it.

Does Tattoo Removal Hurt?

While tattoo removal may be slightly uncomfortable, it shouldn't really hurt--especially compared to the process of getting a tattoo in the first place! If you are nervous about the pain, be sure to ask your doctor what pain relief options are available to you before you begin.

How Long Does Tattoo Removal Take?

Because tattoos are designed to be permanent, the process of removing one can require several treatments spread out over a number of weeks. Depending on the size and nature of the tattoo, it may require as many as five to ten treatments, each of which will be spread out anywhere from six to twelve weeks apart.

Will the Proceeding Cause Scarring?

When performed by a professional, tattoo removal should not cause any scarring. It will not remove any previous scars you may have received from getting the tattoo in the first place, but it shouldn't add any more either.

How Much Does Tattoo Removal Cost?

The cost of tattoo removal varies widely based on the size of the tattoo. While it is possible to estimate the cost at home, most people dramatically overestimate. This is why we prefer that you call or come in for a more realistic estimate.

If your old tattoo simply doesn't fit your lifestyle anymore or you need to change it in some way, the best way to do that is through laser tattoo removal at The Fountain Clinic in Cleveland. The sooner you begin, the sooner that process will be complete. Call and set up an appointment today!
