We see stories every day of people getting meaningful tattoos that they love, but not everyone experienced that joy. Some that do initially can come to regret their tattoos later in life–even if they just thought of something cooler they’d like to put in that space.

Luckily enough, tattoos aren’t as permanent as they used to be. Tap & Zap Laser Spa offers laser tattoo removal for Shreveport and Bossier City citizens who maybe don’t love their tattoo choices.

How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

When you get a tattoo, the artist pierces your skin with a needle loaded with ink. That ink passes the dermis (top layer of skin), into the epidermis, where the ink deposits. These large reservoirs of ink become visible.

Because the reservoirs of ink are so large, your skin’s replenishment system isn’t able to remove them. The tattoos are “permanent.”

Our laser tattoo removal system breaks up these large reservoirs into smaller molecules, which your body is able to eliminate and remove.

Tattoo Removal Costs

Just like getting when you got the tattoo, the price of laser tattoo removal depends a lot on what you want to get done. The number of colors, size, location, and age of the tattoo can all contribute to both the number of sessions tattoo removal will take, and therefore the time.

Other factors, like your skin’s pigmentation, can also make tattoo removal simpler or more difficult. Sometimes it isn’t possible to completely remove a tattoo, but your laser technician will discuss this with you during your consultation.

During your initial consultation, the technicians at Tap & Zap Laser Spa will discuss your tattoo and your removal goals. This consultation is entirely free, and if you decide to go with us for your tattoo removal needs, you’ll know exactly what to expect.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does laser removal hurt?

Most people report that the laser feels like a rubber band popping against the skin. Afterward, they say the area feels like a sunburn. During the procedure, the laser technicians at Tap & Zap Laser Spa use Zimmer Cryo Therapy to reduce some of the pain during the procedure. Dr. Angelo can also prescribe a topical anesthetic to help with the pain.

Can you remove tattoos with multiple colors?

Yes. We use a Quanta Q-Plus C multifrequency laser to remove tattoos. These lasers can remove almost any color. However, some colors can take more sittings to remove completely. During your consultation, your technician will discuss your tattoo’s coloring.

How many treatments will it take?

Most tattoos can be removed in 6-8 treatments. Older, predominantly black tattoos take less time than newer, more colorful pieces.

Does the laser cause scarring?

Not with proper aftercare. After your lasering appointment, your technician will go over how to care for the area so that it heals well. Follow these instructions! They will help prevent scarring, infection, and other complications.

Can you completely remove all tattoos?

No one can guarantee that they’ll be able to entirely remove every single tattoo. If there’s scarring, or a tattoo artist deposited ink too deeply beneath the skin, it may not be possible to entirely remove the tattoo. Likewise, certain light blue inks are resistant to laser tattoo removal.
