Do you regret your tattoo? Do you wish you could make it disappear and have clean skin again? Unfortunately, tattoos that were once popular for their forever status are going out of fashion, leaving many of us wondering, “what now?” Luckily, the professionals at Coastal Aesthetics in York, Maine, have a perfect solution for you. A common question we get is “How much does a tattoo removal cost?” We have the details below.
Laser tattoo removal is a popular aesthetic service that effectively removes tattoos leaving behind smooth, healthy skin after a course of treatments. At Coastal Aesthetics, our talented team can remove your tattoo entirely regardless of whether it’s highly pigmented or just a simple black outline.
Removal usually takes a series of treatments, and when you come in for your initial consultation, our technicians will examine the area you want to treat and advise you on the best course of action. When we start your tattoo removal process, we will discuss the tattoo’s age, size, and pigment levels in your skin and examine how deep into the skin the pigment reaches. These factors will determine your specific treatment plan to help you achieve optimal results.
We use Harmony XL Pro for tattoo removal. We love using this laser because it’s FDA approved for more than 65 different skin indications, and it’s produced by the prestigious Alma Lasers, which has set the industry standard for laser technology for many years. As a result, harmony XL is one of the safest and most effective treatments for laser tattoo removal on the market today.
Harmony XL Pro by Alma Lasers utilizes Q-switched laser technology. This technology allows your practitioner to safely concentrate the laser’s energy beneath the skin’s surface to selectively target ink particles without damaging the skin’s surface. Once these ink particles are targeted, the laser creates a photoacoustic shock wave that effectively breaks up the ink particles and allows your body’s lymphatic system to flush the ink particles out naturally.
Harmony XL Pro is different from other tattoo removal lasers (often less effective) because it utilizes an advanced laser beam to work in different wavelengths, meaning it can effectively target different ink colors. As a result, we can remove more ink faster and more thoroughly than other lasers. In addition, this technology enables specific wavelengths to be attracted to particular colors making it even more effective at treating that hard-to-remove darker and brighter shades. If you’re ready to see the difference tattoo removal could make for you, contact us today to book your consultation.
If you have a tattoo you’d like to remove, are not currently pregnant, and are in good health, you’d be a great candidate for Harmony XL Pro. However, it’s best to let your skin fully heal before beginning treatments if you’re now injured or have a skin condition affecting the tattooed area (such as sunburn). If you have any questions about whether you’d be a good candidate, don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.
A common question we get is “How much does tattoo removal cost?”. The price of tattoo removal depends on many factors, including the amount and depth of pigment and the size and age of your tattoo.
