How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

The lasers Original You uses for tattoo removal uses a strong, non-thermal, photomechanical impact to break up ink into microscopic particles. From there Your immune system removes these tiny particles. Since the lasers’ use a high-peak energy with ultra-short pulse durations without causing thermal damage, like q-switch lasers do, we are able to target the tattoo to reduce the risk of complications more common with older technology.

Original You uses both nano and pico second pulse-durations to break up the ink. The use of picosecond (one-trillionth of a second) technology has been shown to reduce the number of treatments need for tattoo removal.

This brief video explains the process better than we can:

How Many Treatments Does Tattoo Removal Take?

The number of treatment sessions required depends on a number of factors:

  • Age of the Tattoo
  • Type of Ink Used
  • Depth & Density of the Ink
  • YOUR Immune System
  • Your Aftercare (we’ll give you instructions on how to take care of the treated area, following them will help speed things along).

Original You’s average number of treatment sessions is 7. If for some reason, your number of treatment sessions for a treated area goes past 10 (ten), we will continue to treat the area for up to 1 (one) year at no cost to you. We’re confident in our technology, skill and expertise.

We will do our best to give you an educated guess at your consultation. Feel free to learn more about our tattoo removal process here.

Will my Tattoo be Completely Removed?

Most tattoos that we treat are completely removed or at least removed to a point that if you didn’t know a tattoo was there before, you would never know. Original You’s patients are typically satisfied in 7 (seven) treatments or less.

Every tattoo is different, we can’t guarantee your skin will look like it did the day before you got the tattoo (your skin isn’t the same as it was before the tattoo ie: you’re older and likely had additional sun exposure since getting it, unfortunately we all age, although we have tools to help with that too). We will however, not charge you if we go past 10 (ten) treatments at Original You for an entire year (if needed). That’s right, Original You will treat your tattoo for 1 (one) year after your 10th treatment from us, if needed.

No offense, we love seeing our clients, but we love seeing them smile when they come in to show us the final result.

Most patients are happy somewhere between 5-7 treatments (this is why we offer package discounts). Those getting cover-ups, their artists are happy between 1-4 treatments on average.

Does Tattoo Removal Hurt?

While we would like to say laser tattoo removal doesn’t hurt, it does. Everyone’s pain tolerance is different, we’ve heard it “feels about the same as getting the tattoo” to “like being snapped repeatedly with a bunch of tiny rubber-bands.” Depending on the size of your tattoo, the actual treatment time is very short.

To help make the process more comfortable we do apply cold compress before, during and after treatment. In our experience, ice seems to work just as well or better than a cold air machine or topical.

Original You also offers a pain-free option. See the next FAQ for more detail.

What's This Pain-Free Option?

Since Original You always has medical professionals on staff while our lasers are being used, we offer local anesthetic injections to numb the tattoo being treated. You will few a few needle pokes, but you won’t feel any pain during the laser tattoo removal treatment.
