What to expect:

At your initial free consultation, our Certified Laser Specialist will assess your tattoo, give you a quote for treatment, and answer any questions you have about the procedure. We aim to educate each patient about the tattoo removal process and about how they can achieve the best removal results.

The laser treatment itself can take from a few seconds to a few minutes to complete, depending on the size and intricacy of the tattoo. There is some discomfort associated with the procedure, and many patients compare the sensation of tattoo removal to that of getting the tattoo. At River City Laser Tattoo Removal Studio, we offer numbing solutions to help desensitize the treatment area.

During treatment, you will see an immediate skin reaction to the laser energy. Over the following days and weeks, your tattoo will start to fade, and you will begin to see the removal results. Most tattoos require 5 to 10 treatments, spaced 6 weeks apart to achieve complete removal. If you simply want the tattoo faded down for a cover up tattoo, fewer treatments are needed. Also, older tattoos and homemade tattoos require fewer treatments to see complete removal results.

How tattoo removal works:

Laser tattoo removal effectively speeds up the natural process of tattoo fading that occurs over time. Virtually all tattoos require multiple treatments to be completely removed, and the greatest results are achieved with the most number of treatments.


During a laser tattoo removal treatment, intense laser energy is applied to the skin and penetrates deep into the dermis to the tattoo ink particles. The ink particles selectively absorb the laser energy, heat up, and shatter into smaller particles. Then, over following weeks, the body’s natural immune system flushes away the minuscule particles from the tattooed area. Each treatment reaches deeper and deeper layers of tattoo ink until the tattoo can no longer be seen.


At River City Laser Tattoo Removal Studio, we have advanced technology to remove your tattoo in as few treatments as possible. Our laser can treat all tattoo colors on all skin types with optimal results.
