What to Expect


What to Expect With Professional Laser Tattoo Removal in Phoenix & Chandler

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 you as an individual, your wishes, and ultimately the new you.

Here is what you can expect from the tattoo removal process:

Will It Hurt?

It all depends on your pain threshold; our patients describe the treatments as minimal to mild discomfort.

At Delete – Tattoo Removal & Medical Salon, we believe removing a tattoo should be as painless as possible. Our highly trained physicians, qualified laser technicians, and state-of-the-art technology allows us to be keenly focused on minimizing your pain. We do this by offering a local anesthetic to offset an otherwise painful process. We work closely with you to create a treatment plan that addresses your pain threshold — all while taking great care and attention to 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 the 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 you a scar-free experience. Typically, the only scar that needs to be addressed is one left by a heavy-handed tattoo artist.

Our number one priority is to protect your skin. During your consultation, Delete – Tattoo Removal & Medical Salon’s highly trained, certified physicians and qualified laser technicians 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.

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 – Tattoo Removal & Medical Salon utilizes PicoWay Laser Technology by Candela, the world’s first and only triple wavelength laser that pulsates with higher levels of comfort, compared to other lasers. PicoWay delivers ultra-short picosecond pulses of energy to the tissue. These bursts of energy create a photo-mechanical impact by breaking up the tattoo ink or pigmentation into smaller, more easily eliminated particles. PicoWay can delete the most intricate pigments on a variety of skin tones.

Delete – Tattoo Removal & Medical Salon is proud to be the first salon in Phoenix to provide a laser wavelength capable of reducing blue and green pigments in as little as three to five sessions. Comparatively, other tattoo removal specialists, who use the Q-switch lasers, tend to remove these difficult pigments within 10 or more treatments.

Treatment sessions are every 8 weeks over the course of several months. Your initial consultation will reveal a personalized treatment plan that estimates your number of anticipated treatments. Contact us today to get started on your tattoo removal journey today!
