Laser tattoo removal is a safe and predictable procedure to eliminate undesirable permanent tattoos in any body area.
The procedure involves no plastic surgery and can be undertaken in-office. At the time of the initial consultation, the treatment provider will explain various facets of laser tattoo removal, including its costs.
The primary goal of a dedicated provider is to inform the patient about the procedure and enable them to make a judicious choice. Dr. Q Med Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Quardt, provides laser tattoo removal to patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and surrounding communities.
Type of Laser Technology
Laser tattoo removal costs may differ from one practice to another, depending on the type of laser technology used and various other aspects. Dr. Q’s med spa is equipped with the latest PicoWay Resolve laser technology, which is now considered the gold standard in permanent tattoo removal techniques.
PicoWay Resolve involves fewer laser treatment sessions to eliminate permanent tattoos in a less invasive way. The technology enables the use of various wavelengths to treat the tattoo in a more targeted and precise way.
Laser tattoo removal costs can now differ between patients, even at the same practice, due to various reasons. The nature and quality of the tattoo will be unique in each case.
Laser tattoo removal specialists will initially assess the tattoo and skin type. Depending on this assessment, they will estimate the total number of treatment sessions that will be necessary to remove the tattoo.
In case the tattoo is in black or another dark color, it may be relatively easier to eliminate it as dark colors will absorb the most laser light.
Green colored tattoos are typically the most difficult to remove. Similarly, individuals with darker skin may need special laser treatment to eliminate the tattoo without using plastic surgery.
In case the tattoo was originally made using a recognized or good quality ink, it may be more convenient to eliminate. Other factors to be considered are the size and location of the tattoo.
A large sized tattoo or one that is in a sensitive or hard to reach location will need more effort for its removal. The overall charges for the procedure will depend on the total number of sessions involved.
Other Factors Impacting the Price Tag
The geographical location of the practice is a vital factor that will affect the total cost of any cosmetic procedure.
In case the practice is located in a prime urban center or main metropolitan city, it will usually have higher real estate and overhead costs relative to a practice located in a small town in the interiors.
The qualifications and experience of the treatment provider is an important factor, which will typically determine the fees charged by them. Factors such as the quality standards at a specific practice, the type of facilities and services that they offer, and the laser technologies and techniques used also have an impact on the total costs.
Ideally, patients should work with the best possible treatment provider to reduce the risk of scarring and other side effects that are associated with laser procedures.
