Cost of laser Tattoo Removal in Richmond VA
The price of laser tattoo removal varies based on several factors:
- Size and complexity of the tattoo- larger and/or multi-colored tattoos cost more
- Geographic location- big cities tend to charge bigger prices
- Laser- Until recently Q Switched lasers have been the gold standard for removal. The PicoSure laser is the latest weapon in tattoo removal. PicoSure is 100 times faster than the Q Switch and can remove tattoos in half the treatments of a Q Switch. Though PicoSure treatments are more expensive, because you need less treatments it actually is a better value.
Whatever you decide, make certain that whomever is going to be treating you has been properly trained and has experience with lasers. There are now laser serves popping up in every strip mall. Using a laser is a medical procedure and can have dire consequences when put into the wrong hands.
I hope this information is helpful.

Tattoo Removal Cost
Each area about a business card size is $300. MedLite C6 is best known as the industry's gold standard laser for multi-colored tattoo removal. It also provides a wide range of other indications on all patient skin types.
The cost of removing a tattoo is based on the size measured in square inches. However, it is standard in most practices to consider the amount of ink within that measured area , in order to make it a more precise cost estimate.
What would have taken 8-12 sessions of tattoo removal treatments with previous laser technology, can be expected be take only 4-6 sessions the PicoSure laser !! This not only reduces the amount of time invested , but the overt cost of travel, appointments and time off!
Picosure picosecond laser for tattoo removal costs more per session but requires fewer sessions.
Picosure (brand new picosecond pulse technology) works faster and is more effective on more difficult colors (greens, blues, etc), so there are fewer treatment sessions overall, with a cleaner result (and less scarring). Treatment sessions usually cost more, but there are fewer, with fewer trips to the doctor, less life disruption. It also works on tattoos that have been treated 10+ times with other lasers and just won't go away. Save your money and just do the Picosure first.
