Laser By Kristen
We offer Laser treatments to safely remove all types and colors of tattoos using the State-of-the-Art MedLite C6 laser. The MedLite laser removes tattoo ink with the energy of light. Tattoo ink is removed by using specific wavelengths of light which passes into the skin, but is absorbed by the ink. The rapid light energy causes the ink to break into tiny particles which can then be removed by the body's natural filtering systems. The MedLite laser provides maximum tattoo removal while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed.
On average, professional tattoos require 6-15 treatments, while amateur tattoos require 2-6 treatments, spaced 6-8 weeks apart. The number of treatments depends on many factors. The color and type of ink used, and the depth of the ink into the skin can determine how many treatments are needed. Also, upper body tattoos fade faster than lower body tattoos and older tattoos fade faster than newer tattoos.
The MedLite laser does remove colored inks. However, black and red inks will resolve the best. Oranges and purples usually fade as well. Green, sky blue and yellow inks are the most difficult to remove, and additional treatments may be needed to produce significant fading. In many cases, greater than 95% fading of the tattoo can be accomplished. Laser By Kristen is proud to be the only office in South Carolina offering tattoo removal with the MedLite C6 laser, which we feel is the #1 laser on the market today for tattoo removal.
Consultations are $50, but that amount will be applied toward a treatment if done at the time of the consultation. Treatment prices range from $125-$500 depending on the size and color of the tattoo. However, most tattoo's range from $175-$250 per treatment. The exact amount for your tattoo will be determined at the time of the consultation.
