How does the technology of laser tattoo removal work?
The advanced technology of laser energy is used in the procedure of laser tattoo removal that is directed at the targeted tattooed area just for a second. The laser energy passes through the outer skin layer and targets the ink of the tattoo directly. The ink absorbs the laser energy allowing the tattoo to break down into small particles that are then naturally carried off by the body.
How much does Laser Tattoo Removal cost?
Tattoo removal by LaserKlinic is affordable. LaserKlinic offers a free consultation to evaluate your tattoo and at that time will give you a price quote and and a recommendation on how many treatments you will need. Laserklinic’s fees are a great value and we also provide interest free financing and special payment plans for our clients‘ convenience.
Can a tattoo with lots of colors be removed?
Usually, but not always. LaserKlinic uses state-of-the-art lasers and the newest techniques. Some colors may require moretattoo removal treatments, but they can usually be removed. Some colors cannot be removed. Certain shades of purples, pinks, yellow, and white are examples of colors that may not be removable by our Laser Tattoo Removal.
Can I lighten my tattoo in order to cover it with another tattoo?
Yes. Tattoo artists refer many clients who request lightening their tattoos before cover up work is performed. This often allows for a greater choice in a new tattoo design, improving the final result.
Will my tattoo be gone after my first Laser Tattoo Removal treatment?
No. There are several different factors involved in determining how many treatments your particular tattoo will require, but between 5 and 15 treatments is average.
Why has nothing changed after a tattoo removal treatment?
This is completely normal. Some people may even see their tattoo get darker with their first treatment. Everyone responds at a different rate. The tattoo removal treatment is only effective with multiple visits…just be patient and follow the advice of LaserKlinic’s experts to get the best results possible.
How often should I come in for Laser Tattoo Removal treatments?
Laser tattoo removal treatments are best performed every 6 to 8 weeks. This allows your body and immune system enough time to remove the pigment. The laser breaks up the pigment so the body’s immune system can take it away.
Can I buy just one Queens, Long Island, or Manhattan Laser Tattoo Removal treatment at a time?
Yes, you can buy just one treatment at a time. However, we offer discounts if you purchase multiple tattoo removal treatments at the same time.
How long does it take to heal?
The laser treated tattoo takes 7 to 10 days to heal much like a tattoo. The inked area will be slightly raised and the area around the tattoo will look reddish and feel warm, much like sunburn.
Will I have a scar after Laser Tattoo Removal NYC?
Scarring is rare after laser tattoo removal, however, scarring is a possibility in any medical procedure involving the skin. If you are predisposed to keloids, or you scar easily, your chances may be higher. Compliance with our aftercare instructions will greatly reduce your chances of scarring.
Does the laser tattoo removal treatment hurt?
For most people there is a minimal amount of discomfort involved in this procedure. Most clients describe the feeling as a rubber band snap. We use a combination of numbing cream and cooling to make the treatment as comfortable as possible.
What should I do before my tattoo removal treatment?
Shave the area to be treated, if necessary. Avoid aspirin, Aleve, Motrin, or ibuprofen products.
What do I need to do after I am treated?
You may resume all activities soon after the laser tattoo removal treatment, provided you ensure the area is not rubbed or scratched. If you are in the sun, you should cover the treated area to prevent sunburn until the skin has healed.

Our NYC tattoo removal experts use laser energy directed at the tattoo for a fraction of a second. The laser passes harmlessly through the outer layer of the skin, directly targeting the tattoo ink. Disrupting the ink’s composition and breaking it down, the body can then absorb it.
Most of our NYC tattoo removal clients report a minimal amount of discomfort. Similar to the rubber band snapping feeling of a PhotoFacial, the pain can be alleviated by a combination of numbing cream and applying cool compresses to the treated area.
For a tattoo to be removed, it takes several treatments at one of our many convenient locations in NYC. Tattoo removals are typically achieved between five and 15 treatments.
