Laser Tattoo Removal

No more regrets! Erase those unwanted tattoos using the latest FDA-approved laser technology for safe and effective removal. Laser tattoo removal is quick, has minimal side effects, and requires no post treatment downtime.

What Is Laser Tattoo Removal?

Utilizing pulsed laser light to target the ink in tattoos, laser tattoo removal treatments are the most effective way to erase unwanted body art — even on difficult ink colors (greens, blues and reds).

How Does Tattoo Removal Work?

Our Q-Switch Laser emits a pulse of light energy that passes through the top layers of the skin and is absorbed by the tattoo ink. This energy quickly heats up, shattering the ink into tiny particles without damaging surrounding skin.

Your body eliminates the ink through its natural processes, resulting in an incremental lightening of the tattoo.

What Types Of Tattoos Can Be Removed?

Laser removal treatments work for all types of tattoos, on all parts of the body. We do not, however, perform this treatment on tattoos inked with non-professional product like permanent makeup and amateur tattoos.

What Does It Feel Like?

Most people equate it to the same sensation they felt when originally got their tattoo — so it depends on your pain tolerance. Some people describe the removal process as feeling like a rubber band repeatedly snapping your skin.

Tattoo removal treatments are also very quick — lasting just a few minutes — because the laser doesn’t need to penetrate very deeply into the skin.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

The number of treatments needed is different for every tattoo, and depends on several factors:

  • the size of the tattoo
  • the ink color
  • the location on the body
  • the age of the tattoo
  • the technique used to create the tattoo (professional or handmade)

A typical tattoo requires 3 – 10 treatments for optimal results. Your Viva Day Spa laser specialist will assess your body art and recommend a custom treatment plan.

Post Treatment Protocol

After your treatment, your Viva Day Spa laser specialist will provide you with an aftercare plan. In general, we advise our guests to:

  • Take it easy for approximately 24 hours
  • Keep the lasered area elevated, if possible
  • Use only the products we recommend for dry, itchy or flaky skin
  • Avoid scratching any blisters or scabs
  • Avoid sun exposure and use a strong sunscreen (SPF30+) on the area
  • Avoid swimming until the area is completely healed
  • Try not to overheat your skin for 24 hours — no exercise or hot showers
  • Avoid long soaks in water of any kind until the area has completely healed
  • Do not apply make-up to the treated area

Are There Any Side Effects?

You may experience some redness, swelling and blistering around the treated area. These side effects are temporary, and your skin should heal completely within one to two weeks. You should be able to resume daily activities immediately.

Will There Be Any Scarring?

Scarring is always possible, but is extremely rare. If treated by one of our expert laser technicians utilizing our state-of-the-art technology, you should not be left with any scars after your laser tattoo removal treatments.

It is important to follow our post-treatment instructions to promote healing and complete recovery.
