There are many reasons for wanting to remove a tattoo. Maybe it’s ugly or spelled wrong, or has a person’s name you regret or it’s just not for you anymore. If you’re considering getting a tattoo removed or lightened, you’re in luck. At New York Skin & Vein Center, we’ve got just what you’re looking for. We’ve mastered the top-of-the-line laser tattoo removal technologies to help you get it done right, no matter the reason.

What Happens During Laser Tattoo Removal?

At NYSVC, we use the world’s best laser tattoo removal technology: the Enlighten Laser by Cutera. This state-of-the-art treatment breaks the ink down into tiny fragments that your body will absorb from the skin over time. Unlike its competitors, the Enlighten Laser is able to produce pulses of light by the picosecond and nanosecond, making for an even faster removal process. With a short treatment, tattoo removal has never been easier or faster.

Is The Process Painful?

If you’ve talked to people who have undergone tattoo removal, you may have heard some horror stories but don’t let them scare you. In fact, removal is not painful at all and much more comfortable than getting the tattoo itself. Because we provide numbing creams and cold air to chill the area during treatment, the Enlighten Laser is virtually painless. If you are especially sensitive, we will numb the area just the dentist does with novocaine. Side effects after treatment are minimal and feel like a mild sunburn for just a few days.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

You’ve probably heard of tattoo removal taking ten to twenty treatments at other offices. If you’re worried about having to pay for lots of sessions, we’ve got good news: with the Enlighten Laser, you can erase your tattoo with as few as two treatments.

Every tattoo is different, though. While you’ll need fewer sessions overall compared to our competitors, the number of sessions you’ll need depends on several factors:

  • Age of Tattoo
  • Size
  • Color
  • Placement on the Body
  • Erasing vs. Lightening

We’ll be able to provide you with a more accurate number of treatments it will take at you’re consultation. And we have a guarantee for you: You will pay for no more than eight (8) treatments to get rid of your tattoo. If any more treatments than eight are needed, they are FREE. 

Is There Downtime After Treatment?

The Enlighten treatment isn’t only safe, effective, and fast, it also has minimal downtime. You’re free to pick up where you left off after each office visit. You won’t need to take any time off work and aftercare is minimal. And as mentioned above, all soreness and side effects will clear up within a week. If you think Enlighten is right for you, call or email us now to schedule your complimentary consultation. We’d love to help you get a fresh start.

Today was my first laser removal session on a tattoo. I was expecting to have all this pain and so on but nothing. It was the feel of a rubberband snapping and a bit of a tingle. I was very comfortable and happy with my service and am looking forward to my second session.
