What Is Laser Tattoo Removal?

Tattoo removal may be desired for a number of reasons. Some individuals develop an allergic reaction to the ink while others have tattoos that no longer represent who they are. Regardless of your reason for wanting to remove a tattoo, advancements in aesthetic technology have helped make it possible to lighten or significantly diminish the appearance of body ink. At Horizon Medical Center in Schaumburg, IL, our med spa team performs tattoo removal using the sophisticated Harmony XL PRO laser system. If you have a tattoo that you no longer want, schedule a visit to our practice to learn more about our laser tattoo removal services.

How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

Our laser tattoo removal treatments emit targeted light energy into the skin, which breaks up the pigmented ink into small pieces that can be absorbed and removed by the body. The treatment time for tattoo removal varies among individuals and depends on the size and type of the tattoo. At times, a tattoo may require a number of treatments before obvious results are visible. During your consultation at Horizon Medical Center, our med spa team will discuss these factors with you and let you know the number of treatment sessions that may be required to reduce the appearance of your tattoo.

Laser Tattoo Removal FAQ

How much does laser tattoo removal cost?

How much your laser tattoo removal procedure will cost depends on the size of the treatment area and the number of treatments needed. Each case is unique, with factors such as size, ink color, body area, and others contributing to the overall cost to achieve your goals. During your consultation, your team member will be able to give you a better idea of what will be needed. At Horizon Medical Center, we offer low-interest payment options to make your care affordable.

Are there side effects of laser tattoo removal?

The Harmony XL PRO laser system we use to remove your tattoo may cause redness, itching, swelling, crusting, or a sunburn sensation at the treatment area. When you talk with our team members about your tattoo removal, we can give you an in-depth explanation of what to expect during and after your treatment sessions.

Why do I need so many laser tattoo removal sessions?

When you have your consultation, your team member will be able to give you a better estimate of sessions needed, but in general, the age of the tattoo, color, location, and size will determine the number of sessions required to reach your aesthetic goals. Typically, multiple treatments will be necessary and are scheduled 2 – 4 weeks apart.

Can a tattoo be completely removed?
When considering laser tattoo removal, you should always be realistic about your expectations. While the appearance of tattoos can be dramatically reduced with laser tattoo removal, you shouldn't expect it to completely disappear. Often some residual parts of the tattoo may remain.

Are there alternatives to laser tattoo removal?

The fastest and most effective method to effectively diminish the appearance of your body ink is laser tattoo removal. However, in addition to laser tattoo removal, you may want to consider adding dermabrasion or microneedling to your treatment to enhance the results and improve the health of your skin.
