• Anesthetic

    Topical numbing is generally applied, We also offer Pronox to clients for comfort if they choose. Topical Anesthetic is not required but most people prefer for added comfort.

  • Recovery Time

    Recovery time varies person to person. Typically the area will swell and scab for 2-4 weeks post treatment. 

  • Sessions

    Depending on the colours, layering of ink and location of the tattoo determines how many sessions are needed. Come in for a consultation where we can give you an estimate on amount of sessions needed. 

Tattoo Removal

The Pico laser targets the tattoo with very short and strong laser pulses that penetrate deep into the skin, without injuring the top layers. These pulses are the absorbed by the pigments in the ink which breaks them up into smaller particles. These are then naturally absorbed by the body's own immune system. Clients who have had Pico laser say that the treatment is bearable and it feels just like a rubber band snapping the skin. 

Cost is based on sizing and colour. We offer free consultations.
