How Much Does Laser Tattoo Removal Cost?
The charges for laser tattoo removal start at $200 and depend on the size of the tattoo. To try to make things simple for people inquiring online or over the phone, we give prices based on sizes like business card, 8.5 x 11, etc. However, we realize most tattoos aren't shaped exactly in those dimensions. Prior to a treatment, each patient will be evaluated by a physician extender (P.A. or Nurse Practitioner) who will determine whether or not you are a good candidate for laser tattoo removal. They then will give you the exact cost. It is your decision to proceed or not. There should never be any pressure involved in scheduling an appointment and no gimmicks like a special price if you schedule same day.
Tattoo removal likely requires several treatments. In some cases, some ares fade very quickly, so it is possible that the initial treatments may cost more than subsequent treatments where fading has started and the procedure takes less time.
As with any medical treatment, do not base your decision solely on cost. A low price for ineffective tattoo removal isn't really a great deal. Or paying for antiquated technology that takes many, many more treatments than the newest state-of the-art technology is also not a great deal.
However, a laser center with a great reputation and many repeat clients will often be able to offer very competitive prices while maintaining the highest standards in safety, efficacy, cleanliness and also the most highly trained and competent providers.
Cost of Laser Tattoo Removal
The cost depends on the size of the tattoo. It starts from $100 per session for a small tattoo and increases based on the surface area that the tattoo covers. It will take approximately 6-8 sessions depending on the quality of the ink, 8-10 weeks apart for complete removal. Colored tattoos may need more sessions, which again depend on the quality of the ink.
The cost for lasering tattoo's can vary depending on size and color. I would recommend following up with a Provider to be evaluated for an accurate estimate.
Tattoo Removal and Price
Used to be an easy question to answer
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.
