How It Works

Three Convenient Ways to Get Started

Free Consultation with the Doctor

During your first visit you will get a free confidential consultation with the doctor. We discuss your health as it relates to the treatments, the history and features of your tattoo and the tattoo removal or fading outcome you desire. At the conclusion we provide a custom treatment plan designed to meet your goals and budget.

How Long Will it Take?

Session times depend on the size of your tattoo. Typical sessions average about 5 min. The number of sessions required can range from 1 to 10 or more, depending on location, color and your removal or fading goals. The combination of picosecond and nanosecond pulse delivery means that typically the number of sessions will be fewer than with traditional Q-switched nanosecond techniques alone. The results of this new technology are that tattoos can be treated and leave virtually no trace in a much shorter time which also reduces cost.

Does it Hurt?

The discomfort is often described as being like a rubber band snapping the skin. At Vanishing Ink we do our utmost to minimize any pain or discomfort with prescription strength topical numbing creams and chillers during the treatment. A doctor is on staff to help with minimizing your discomfort and if necessary we can even provide Lidocaine at the site of the removal.
