FAQs

What about a numbing solution? BLC offers injectable numbing for small and medium sized areas with Nurse Practitioner Dr. Eleanor Hethcox. Please call us to schedule. 

How many sessions will it take to remove mytattoo? It depends on age of tattoo, how many colors, type of ink and if was done by a professional or an amateur. Basic estimate is 8-14 sessions, 4-6 weeks apart.

Are there some ink colors that cant be removed? All colors can be faded with our 3-wavelength laser. However some colors can take longer, especially yellow and green.

I am dark skinned. Will Laser Tattoo Removal work on me? Yes, however treatments will take longer as we will start at a lower power and work our way up to avoid damaging your skin. Since darker skin pigments can absorb more of the laser light and cause hyper-pigmentation (change in skin color), we are very cautious. We've had great success with pigmented skin.


Is Laser Tattoo Removal Painful?
 The treatment can be described as a an elastic band flicking against the skin. Our laser is so fast, that treatment is quite tolerable and over very quickly. **See numbing solutions above.

Will it be ok to remove them during the summer? We recommend limiting sun exposure before & after treatment for several weeks and then using a 50+ SPF sunscreen until finished. 

Can I still go to the gym after sessions? No, you will need to wait for at least 48 hours after each treatment before getting the area wet including sweating, so plan ahead. 

Will I scar? We always begin at a lower intensity according to your skin type and the color of the ink. We have strong guidelines for aftercare, including keeping the area dry for 48 hours (to reduce chance of infection) and application of Anti-biotic gel. If aftercare protocol is followed, risk of scarring, still exists, but is unlikely.

How much does tattoo removal cost? Prices are based on size and start at $50 for a 1/2 ring-sized area. Please call our office for a quote or text a picture of the tattoo to expert Mikayla at 409-454-9502.


How old do I have to be to get laser removal?
You have to be at least 18 or have a parent with you.

Does the type of ink matter? Yes different colors take longer to remove. And some inks can be very difficult to remove. Patience is required, as with all laser procedures.

Is an older tattoo easier to remove? Yes, typically they are easier, as they have already begun to fade and are not usually as deep as newer techniques.

Does it matter where the tattoo is? Yes, tattoos on skin with a thicker layer of fat underneath are easier to remove, typically the chest, arms and legs.

Are there after effects? Not always, but sometimes, yes. Bleeding, blistering and swelling are typical. Occasionally the skin pigment will darken, and then fade after a few months.
