Frequently Asked Questions

How many treatments will I need?

​The number of treatments needed is unique for every patient and their tattoo. Although it's impossible to know precisely how many treatments you will need in advance, we have a system for estimating approximately how many total treatments you will need. The way we determine this is by assessing different factors of your tattoo, including:

  • Age of tattoo
  • Location of tattoo
  • Density of ink
  • Colors of ink used
  • Homemade or professional tattoo
  • Any pre-existing scarring
  • Patient health

All of these factors and any additional questions will be discussed in further detail during your free consultation. Visit our laser tattoo removal page for more information on treatments. 

How long before I see complete removal of my tattoo?

Laser tattoo removal is a lengthy process that takes months to complete. We like to remind patients that this procedure requires both time and commitment, but is worth every second in the end as the results are permanent. A minimum of 6 to 8 weeks is scheduled between each treatment to allow your skin to completely heal before receiving another treatment. The time it takes before seeing complete ink clearance is really dependent on your tattoo and how fast your body's immune system takes to remove the ink. Our powerful Duality laser is designed to shatter ink in as few treatments as possible.

What does laser tattoo removal feel like?

Laser tattoo removal has often been compared to having a rubber band snapped against the skin. You will feel a bit discomfort, but overall the treatment is very tolerable. Luckily, treatment sessions are very quick, lasting anywhere from 1 to 20 minutes depending on size, complexity, and location of the tattoo. Tallahassee Tattoo Removal provides numbing solutions to maximize patient comfort during a treatment session.

Are there any side effects?

The most common side effects are temporary redness, swelling, blistering, and scabbing. These side effects are perfectly normal and are telling signs that your body is responding well to the treatment. Patients with darker skin tones are more prone to experience hypopigmentation -- discoloration of the treated skin. Like other side effects, hypopigmentation is temporary and will heal over the weeks following a treatment. We strongly advise all patients to refrain picking any blisters and scabs to avoid scarring or permanent damage. Your practitioner will give you detailed aftercare instructions to prevent any infection from occurring.​
