ABOUT LASER Tattoo Removal
Do you have tattoo regrets? You aren’t alone: 20% of people with tattoos have thought about removal options. In the past, tattoo removal was painful and gave inconsistent results. The Alma Q-Switched Laser with “next-generation” technology now provides a safe and effective way of removing tattoos leaving natural-looking skin. At Beautiful Skin Denver, we provide tattoo removal using effective laser technology with the Harmony XL PRO.
This laser system utilizes a high-intensity light beam laser to address the pigment under your skin and dispel it. The treatment mechanically breaks down ink particles without causing thermal damage. In time, the body’s lymphatic system disposes of the ink fragments. The result (after a number of sessions) reveals clear, ink-free skin with minimal risk of scarring, hypo-pigmentation, and discoloration. If you have a tattoo that you want to erase, reach out to book your consultation with us.
Types of tattoos that can be treated include:
- Professional & amateur tattoos
- Traumatic tattoos resulting from accidents
- Cosmetic tattoos (from permanent makeup)

LASER TATTOO REMOVAL FAQs
How much does laser tattoo removal cost?
The price of tattoo removal varies by the number of sessions necessary and the areas that are targeted. Every person’s case is unique. For instance, many individuals might need more sessions; meanwhile, others could only need a few.
When will I see results?
Results after laser-assisted tattoo removal will differ for every individual. After every treatment session, you will see your tattoo appear less visible. Due to the various kinds of inks used in tattooing, the results and the number of treatments could vary. Typically, multiple appointments will be required and are done 2 – 4 weeks apart.
Why do I need so many laser tattoo removal sessions?
Largeness, pigment, location, and how old the tattoo are all included in deciding the number of sessions needed to adequately get rid of your tattoo. During your consultation, we’ll go over your treatment program, including the number of treatments needed for you to attain your goals.
How many sessions do I need?
It normally takes between 3-10 laser treatments for successful removal of a tattoo – performed 8- 10 weeks apart. The length of your treatment depends largely on the size of your tattoo. A very small tattoo might take 5 minutes, while a very large tattoo might take upwards of 30 minutes. The exact number greatly depends on the age of the tattoo, your pain tolerance, and skin type, as well as genetic factors. Some clients choose to only remove the tattoo partially, as they want to cover it with a new tattoo – so fewer treatment sessions are required in this case. We, therefore, require a consultation prior to booking!
Who is a candidate for laser tattoo removal?
Anyone who has an unwanted tattoo may be a candidate for laser tattoo removal. Your esthetician will evaluate your tattoo based on a number of different measures and advise you on the expected outcome based on the age of the tattoo, size of tattoo, colors in tattoo, how deep the tattoo pigment goes, and your skin tone. Laser tattoo removal works best on lighter skin tones who have tattoos in black ink only, but darker skin tones and colored tattoos can also be treated.
Is laser tattoo removal painful?
Laser tattoo removal is known to be an uncomfortable procedure that compares to the pain of getting a tattoo, and pain tolerance varies from person to person. Many describe the treatment as a rubber band snap to the skin. Although no anesthesia is required, a topical anesthetic can be requested for sensitive areas. We offer a medical-grade topical numbing cream for purchase.
How does laser tattoo removal work?
Laser tattoo removal systems break up the tattoo’s pigment colors with a high-intensity light beam. These laser beams break up ink particles into tiny fragments, which are later cleared up by the body’s scavenging cells. This process of fragmenting the ink particles requires numerous sessions depending on the depth of the ink level. The procedure is bloodless and no incisions are made. The laser selectively targets the pigment of the tattoo without damaging the surrounding skin. Black tattoo pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths, making it the easiest color to treat. Other colors can only be treated by selected lasers based upon the pigment color.
Is laser tattoo removal safe? What are the risks?
Laser tattoo removal is the safest of any tattoo removal process because laser treatment selectively treats the pigment in the tattoo only. Risks include but are not limited to infection, scarring, and hypopigmentation.
