Yes, all tattoos can be treated – and the majority can be successfully removed with our lasers. Certain pigments are more difficult to eliminate (blue, green, purple) however, what really sets Fallen Ink apart from other tattoo removal clinics is our ability to treat and remove a full spectrum of colors. With time and proper laser treatments, even the most difficult colors respond positively to our treatments.
Pain tolerance differs from person to person. Laser tattoo removal can sting a bit and feels like an elastic band being snapped against your skin. If you were able to receive the tattoo in the first place, you will have no problem getting it removed. In addition, we use the Zimmer Cyro 6 cooling machine to numb the skin and dull the pain prior to any treatment. We also offer a numbing cream that helps tremendously.
This is probably one of the most popular questions we receive at Fallen Ink. The best answer to this question is “it depends.” The total number of treatments needed on your tattoo depends on – its size, color, ink density, skin type and health. Based on our experience, we can often remove an amateur tattoo in as little as 3 to 5 treatments. A professional, multi-colored tattoo may need between 6 and 12 treatments. During your free consultation, we will discuss and estimate how many treatments will be necessary to remove your tattoo.
At Fallen Ink, we only use the latest laser technologies which allows for fastest heal time. After a treatment you can expect to have bandages on for about 3 hours and may have swelling or redness for about 24-72 hours after the procedure. The treated area will feel like sunburn.
In the early stages of treatments, we typically start by spacing treatments 6 weeks apart. We then gradually allow for treatments to be spaced 8 weeks apart and sometimes towards the end of treatments we like to allow 10 to 12 weeks. We found this to be most efficient in allowing your body’s natural immune system to digest and dispose of the ink.
