Frequently Asked Questions

We offer a list of good-to-knows.

How does laser tattoo removal work?
At Lexington Tattoo Removal, we only use the state-of-the-art Quanta 0-Plus EVO laser. We will select the optimal settings for the colors of your tattoo. The laser delivers a burst of energy that breaks up the ink in the tattoo. These smaller ink particles are then removed by your body’s immune system.
How long does the process take?
Each session is very short. It depends on the size of the tattoo; a small tattoo may take less than a minute! The number of sessions required varies, depending on several factors: the density of the ink in the tattoo, the type of ink, the color, your individual skin tone, and your immune system. We recommend a minimum of 6 weeks between sessions.
Does tattoo removal hurt?
Pain sensation and tolerance varies widely between individuals and depends on which part of the body is undergoing treatment. Most people describe the sensation as having your skin snapped with a rubber band. We use a specially designed cooling device to make the treatment as comfortable as possible. We offer a topical pain relief cream although it’s not recommended because it closes your pores and makes tattoo removal less effective.
Can I only remove part of my tattoo?
Definitely. The laser pulse is very focused, and we can remove only certain areas of your tattoo so that you can have it redone or have it look the way you would like.
How much does tattoo removal cost?
Our goal is to provide the safest and most affordable treatment possible. Treatment prices start at $99 and are dependent on the size of the tattoo. Consultations are always free, so click on the link below to schedule your consultation today.
How long is the healing process for laser tattoo removal?
With older technology clients were in bandages 1-3 weeks after each removal process. With the new laser technology at Lexington Tattoo Removal you can expect to be in bandages for only about 3 hours. After getting treated, you will likely see swelling and redness for 24-72 hours and your skin will feel like it has a mild sunburn.
Can my tattoo be lightened in preparation for a cover-up?
A tattoo cover up involves attempting to cover a small tattoo with a larger one. In essence, you’re trying to drown out the old tattoo with a more prominent one. At Lexington Tattoo Removal, we understand that regret comes in all shapes and sizes, and we are here to help! Getting a tattoo lightened in preparation for a tattoo cover up is an excellent way to improve results for your cover up.
What do I need to do to prepare for my appointment?
  • Please bring photo I.D / drivers license.
  • Shave any hair covering your tattoo the night before.
  • Avoid using any lotions or moisturizers on your tattoo prior to your appointment.
  • Avoid hairspray if the tattoo is near your hair.
  • Eat at least a few hours prior to your appointment.
  • Wear comfortable clothing so we can easily access your tattoo.
  • We cannot treat you if you have a sunburn on your tattoo.
  • Please inform us of all your medications or of any changes in your medication prior to your treatment.
  • Your tattoo must be at least one month old and fully healed in order to start treatment although we may recommend waiting longer when we seeing it.
  • We cannot start or continue treatment if you have recently become pregnant or are breastfeeding.
