Does Laser Tattoo Removal Hurt?

People change over time, emotionally, physically, and mentally. A tattoo that seemed like a good idea a few years ago may not be suitable anymore for a variety of reasons.

People change over time, emotionally, physically, and mentally. A tattoo that seemed like a good idea a few years ago may not be suitable anymore for a variety of reasons. Whether you are worried that it doesn’t represent who you are anymore, or whether it proclaims your love for a former partner, there is no reason why you should keep body ink you don’t like anymore. This is precisely why Dr. Verebelyi provides laser tattoo removal treatments for the clients of Colorado Skin and Vein.

If you have a tattoo you don’t want anymore, you may have doubts about starting the laser tattoo removal procedure. Indeed, we find that a lot of people worry about pain. While no laser treatment is pain-free, the PiQo4 laser system used by Colorado Skin & Veins provides one of the most comfortable removal experiences available.

About Laser Tattoo Removal

Laser tattoo removal is not an overnight process. It can take several appointments with laser technology. At Colorado Skin & Vein, we understand that you want your tattoo removed as quickly as possible. That is why we’ve invested in the most advanced laser technology on the market, the PiQo4 laser system. The PiQo4 laser tattoo removal has four wavelengths, which means that it can remove tattoos in black and colorful ink. Other lasers are not effective on colors. Some can only fade the tattoo.

Will Laser Tattoo Removal be Painful?

What attracted Dr. Verebelyi to the PiQo4 laser is its energy. The laser is more effective than other systems and can remove your unwanted ink 4 times faster. As a result, Colorado Skin & Vein can remove your tattoo faster, which makes the treatment less painful as a whole. Additionally, the PiQo4 laser hurts comparatively far less during each removal session. We also have greater control over the spot size, the energy, and the pulse used for each tattoo removal, which means that the treatment can be customized for clients with pain anxiety. It is an effective approach for tattoos on sensitive areas too, such as permanent makeup. Plus, we offer both topical and injections of lidocaine to numb the treatment area as much as possible prior to the procedure.

Benefits of Laser Tattoo Removal

We appreciate that laser tattoo removal is a difficult decision to make when it comes to the pain threshold. A lot of people prefer covering their tattoos to avoid pain. At Colorado Skin & Vein, we are dedicated to reducing your discomfort, which is why our laser tattoo removal doesn’t hurt as much as other lasers.

Being quick and effective, the PiQo4 laser can display dramatic improvement after only one appointment. You don’t have to wait as long to get rid of your unwanted tattoo. It also reduces the risk of blisters, post-appointment discomfort, and scarring.

"I am so happy with my experience with Christina at CSV. I went in for three skin issues and ended up getting two laser services done. I got my brown/ cafe au lait birthmark removed, it was on the middle of my forehead. I’ve had that birthmark my whole life and I finally decided at 30 to remove it. It only took one session! Next session will be for removing the slight pinkness but my skin healed perfectly and no more brown spot on my forehead! I literally cried tears of joy that I finally found a doctor to trust removing it. Also, I got my first session of a tattoo removal and it is fading nicely for its first treatment. Lastly, I was consulted about the over-all redness in my face from broken capillaries, acne scars, and rosacea Christina educated me on the best laser option to get rid of my red face. Unfortunately I started Accutane and cannot get any more laser treatments until one year off the medicine. I will be back!"
