Tattoo removal by laser

Laser removal of black ink can respond well to several different lasers but it does take many monthly treatments, usually 8 to 10 or more. It usually costs a few hundred dollars per treatment, less or more.

Tattoo removal on wrist

I agree completely with Dr. Shelton.  Our prices are in the same range.  7-9 treatments are usually required for a fresh black tattoo.
