Laser Tattoo Removal Raleigh, NC
Have you ever wished you could go back in time and tell your younger self not to get that tattoo? Well you’re not alone. Of the 50 million Americans that have tattoos, at least 1 in 4 regret some of their ink. At Wake Health Medical Group, we have the tools and answers to help erase the past and reshape your future.
Laser tattoo removal is an advanced treatment designed to completely eliminate tattoos, without leaving scars or depigmented areas of skin behind. For specific information about your tattoo, a private consultation is required. During the consultation, your tattoo will be evaluated, all questions will be answered, and the medical risks and benefits of the laser tattoo removal procedure will be thoroughly explained to you. We will establish a price per treatment and approximate number of treatments necessary, based on the evaluated tattoo.
Astanza Duality Tattoo Removal Laser
At Wake Health Medical Group, a lot of time and effort goes into choosing the right technology. Quality is key for achieving flawless results, which is why all of our laser tattoo removal treatments are performed with the Astanza Duality. This state-of-the-art laser delivers ultra-high peak power for better ink shattering which is what effective laser tattoo removal is all about!
Laser tattoo removal has evolved into one of the most innovative procedures for getting rid of unwanted ink. Our Duality is able to reach unmatched levels of power and selectively target ink trapped deep in your skin. With its versatile 1064 nm and 532 nm wavelengths, the Duality can completely remove a wide range of multicolored tattoos. The Duality is equipped with square spot technology, allowing for safer energy application, minimized side effects, and beautiful results. All treatments performed with the Duality are safe for all patient skin types.
Anyone can receive treatments with our Astanza Duality system, including patients with previously treated tattoos. Tattoos that have not been effectively removed by other treatments may respond well to Astanza laser therapy, providing prior treatment did not cause excessive scarring or skin damage.
How Many Laser Tattoo Removal Sessions Are Needed?
Each tattoo has different characteristics that influence the number of removal sessions necessary. These include:
- Type of ink used
- Density of ink
- Whether the tattoo is old or new
- Any pre-existing scarring
- Patient health
- Other factors
The number of sessions needed for laser tattoo removal treatment is primarily determined by the color of the tattoo. Most tattoos are comprised of different color families and a different laser is needed for each. Turquoise tattoos are some of the most difficult to eliminate because there isn’t a laser that targets the color effectively. Our Duality produces two essential wavelengths – 1064 nm and 532 nm – that seeks out various colors of dye, destroying unwanted tattoos and sending the zapped ink particles out through the body’s immune system.
Some tattoos may only need 3 to 4 treatments while darker tattoos with preexisting scarring may require more than 10 treatments. In most cases, laser tattoo removal takes between 5 to 10 treatments and are spread over several months or a few years. A minimum of 6 to 8 weeks is needed in between each session to allow for maximum skin healing and ink fading. Our Astanza Duality is specifically engineered to eliminate ink faster and deliver complete removal in as few treatments as possible.
Laser Tattoo Removal Cost
$75 per square inch per treatment for the first 2 square inches, then $49 each additional. Prepay for package, get 15% off. Consultations are free.
An optional numbing cream is available for purchase ($45), and technicians will treat any area except the eyebrows. Square inches are calculated by multiplying the height and width of a tattoo; for example, a 3-ince by 1-inch tattoo would be three square inches and a 4-inch by 3-inch tattoo would be 12 square inches.
