Laser tattoo removal is a safe and effective way to get rid of unwanted permanent tattoos in any area of the body. The procedure involves no cosmetic surgery, and can be performed in-office. During the initial consultation, the treatment provider will discuss various aspects of laser tattoo removal, including its costs.
A committed provider’s first goal will be to educate the patient about the procedure and help them make an informed choice.

The sticker price of laser tattoo removal can vary from one patient to another even at the same practice due to a few reasons. The quality and nature of the tattoo will be unique in each case, and the laser expert will first evaluate the tattoo as well as the skin type and overall condition of the tattoo. Based on this evaluation, they will estimate the total number of treatment sessions it may require to eliminate the tattoo.
If the tattoo is in black or another deep dark color, it may be relatively easier to remove it because dark colors will absorb maximum laser light and work more effectively to break down the pigment. Green color tattoos are usually the hardest to eliminate. Similarly, people with darker skin may require special laser treatment to remove the tattoo without using cosmetic surgery.
If the tattoo was originally created using a recognized or quality ink, it may be easier to remove. The size and location of the tattoo are other factors to be considered. A large sized tattoo or a tattoo in a sensitive or difficult to reach location will require more effort for its removal. The treatment provider may charge for the procedure according to the total number of treatment sessions involved.
Other Factors Affecting the Price
The geographical location of the practice is an important factor that will impact the overall monetary amount of any cosmetic procedure.
If the practice is located in a main metropolitan area or a prime urban center, it will typically have higher real estate costs and higher overheads compared to another location in a small, interior town. This will have an influence on the overall costs charged by the practice for cosmetic procedures.
The skill and experience of the treatment provider is a vital factor, which will usually determine the fee charged by them. The quality and safety standards adopted at a particular practice, the type of laser technology and technique used at the practice, and the kind of facilities and services they provide will also have an impact on the overall costs.
Patients should ideally choose the best possible treatment provider to minimize their risk of scarring and other side effects that may occur with laser procedures.
