When you decide to hit Delete, we recognize the emotional intensity behind that decision. Because of this, we offer a removal experience you won’t find elsewhere — one that prioritizes respect, your wishes and ultimately the new you.
Here is what you can expect about the tattoo removal process:
Will it hurt?
It all depends on your pain threshold; our patients describe the treatments as mild to minimal discomfort.
At Delete, we believe removing a tattoo should be as painless as possible. Our highly trained staff and state-of-the-art technology allows us to be keenly focused on managing your pain. We do this by offering a local anesthetic to offset an otherwise painful process. Our team works closely with you to create a treatment plan that works for your needs and pain threshold — all while taking great care and attention in your comfort before, during and after your treatment.
After numbing the area, our experienced medical physicians will pulse a laser light through a hand piece held directly over your tattoo. As this takes place, you will hear a fast clicking sound as the laser light is rapidly pulsed and feel a cool, numbing sensation provided by the Zimmer cooler.
Before their tattoo removal, our clients tell us they came to Delete with expectations of an incredibly painful procedure. However, they find that our pain management plan lessens overall discomfort significantly.
Will it scar?
From the state-of-the-art lasers we use to the highly experienced staff we have, every measure is taken to ensure your scar-free experience. Typically the only scar that needs to be addressed is one left by a heavy handed tattoo artist.
Our number 1 priority is to protect your skin. During your consultation, Delete’s highly trained, certified physicians will spot test your skin to determine the precise energy level and pulse width required to effectively and safely remove your tattoo with no scarring. We are able to target multiple colors without harming your skin.
As you research your options, it is important to allow only skilled medical physicians utilizing the safest but most aggressive laser to remove your tattoo. Removal horror stories happen because of an inexperienced technician, the use of an inappropriate laser or inaccurate laser settings. Ask questions and always ask to see examples of their work with before and after tattoo removal photos.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments to fully delete your tattoo is largely dependent on a number of factors, including the tattoo size, depth, color, your skin pigmentation and so much more. Delete has two lasers to choose from; both are known for producing results faster than at other salons. Treatment sessions are every 6-8 weeks over the course of several months. Your initial consultation will reveal a personalized treatment plan that estimates your number of anticipated treatments.
