Frequently Asked Questions
How does laser tattoo removal work?
The ink particles embedded into the skin when you get a tattoo are large enough that your bodies immune system cannot absorb them. This is why a tattoo is permanent. The laser, using intense energy, breaks these pigment particles down until they are small enough to be flushed out by your body naturally.
How much is a consultation?
Consultations are always free. In your consultation session we will assess the factors of removal for your tattoo such as pigment density and size. We will give you price per session for removal and answer any questions you may have.
How expensive is laser tattoo removal?
Sessions at Ink Rewind start at just $99.00. The final cost of your tattoo removal will depend on your specific tattoo. Come in for a free consultation to receive a full breakdown of your individual cost.
How long does it take?
The number of sessions it takes to remove a tattoo is determined by four things:
- The age of the tattoo
- The colors used in the tattoo
- Then ink density of the tattoo, and
- The location of the tattoo
All of these factors will be discussed and explained in your free consultation. On average the number is 8-12
Can I only remove part of my tattoo?
Yes! Your artist may recommend getting a tattoo lightened or partially removed before a cover-up. Or if you just don’t like a piece of a tattoo we can fix that to.
How long does it take to heal after a treatment?
With the new laser technology at Ink Rewind you can expect bandages for only about 3 hours. After your treatment you will see some swelling and redness for 24-72 hours and the location will feel sunburned. All of your post care instructions will be provided after every treatment.
Does it hurt?
Pain sensation and tolerance varies widely between individuals. Some areas of the body are more sensitive than others. The sensation has been described as a rubber band snapping against the skin. We use a cooling machine, that you can control, to make you as comfortable as possible. We also offer a topical numbing cream, however it is not recommended as it can make treatments less effective.
