There are many factors that affect the cost of removing a tattoo, including where the tattoo is located on your body, colors in the tattoo, ink densities, and more. When you come in for your free tattoo removal consultation at Fusion Skin Spa, we will evaluate your tattoo using the Kirby-Desai Tattoo Removal Scale to determine the amount of treatments your tattoo will need to be removed. The amount of treatments estimated by the Kirby-Desai scale multiplied by the square inches of ink in your tattoo determines the exact price it will cost to remove the tattoo. At the time the Kirby-Desai study was done, the average number of treatments for a successful tattoo removal was 10. We have brought this average down to 6 using more advanced laser equipment and procedures which can only be found at Fusion Skin Spa.
Laser tattoo removal is affordable. Please feel free to call our office for a free consultation.

It was once thought that tattoos were forever; if you got some ink as a kid and regretted it, or if you had an ex’s name tattooed on your bicep, you were out of luck. Thankfully, Tattoo Lou’s and Fusion Skin Spa are bringing to you the latest in laser tattoo removal—a completely effective way of removing a no longer wanted tattoo! Laser tattoo removal is also great for those who would like to lighten an existing tattoo to put some new cover-up ink over it!
At Tattoo Lou’s, we offer tattoo removal because we want you to have the best tattoo experience possible—sometimes, like in the case of some cover-ups, this includes laser tattoo removal as a means of lightening your existing tattoo. Lightening your old tattoo via laser tattoo removal before you get your cover-up tattoo done gives you so many more options for your new ink! Your artist wants to make sure that you’re completely satisfied during the tattoo process, and so it’s easier, as an artist can attest, to start with a clean (or, in this case, cleaner slate). It is far easier to cover-up a lightened tattoo than a dark, old one.
Tattoo Lou’s understands the process of laser tattoo removal because our sister company, Technical Tattoo Supply, manufactures all of the inks that we use. In fact, TTS is the number one manufacturer of tattoo inks in the world! So, even if you didn't get your tattoo at Tattoo Lou’s, there’s an excellent chance that we made your ink, anyway. Because we understand the inks at a molecular level, Tattoo Lou’s knows how the lasers used in your laser tattoo removal will break down the ink, and through this, our colleagues at Fusion Skin Spa are able to assess your tattoo and remove it (or lighten it) successfully, all while answering any questions you may have about the process.
In combining over fifty years of tattooing knowledge with today’s best laser technology and an expert knowledge of how tattoo inks work, Tattoo Lou’s has created your best option for laser tattoo removal. Whether you want to completely rid yourself of some old ink or simply cover over it, Tattoo Lou’s and Fusion Skin Spa are the right choice for your laser removal needs.

Safe yet powerful lasers shoot single wavelength beams of light that pass harmlessly through your layers of skin until they reach the ink in your tattoo. These beams of light break down larger ink particles into smaller ink particles, which can be now processed by your body's natural cleansing mechanisms and removed.
Fusion Skin Spa uses lasers pioneered in Photo Acoustic technology. These lasers emit high-speed energy waves that penetrate the skin in nanoseconds, minimizing the amount of heat produced in your procedure while effectively breaking down the ink particles in your skin. These smaller ink particles are naturally flushed out of your body, significantly lightening your tattoo with each treatment.
Plastic surgeons are no more qualified with lasers than we are. A plastic surgeon is not (at least we hope) going to cut off your skin and sell you new skin. So that being said, the best, safest, and most effective way to remove a tattoo is by using laser technology. The quality of the laser and wavelength certainly matters however. This is why with our extensive medical and tattoo background, Fusion only purchases the best FDA APPROVED lasers.... and yes, they are more expensive than a convertible Bentley! So to answer the question, Is it better to go to a plastic surgeon?, Only if their lasers are better than ours, which we doubt. Is it more expensive to go to a plastic surgeon? ........We can almost guarantee it, and they probably don't even serve coffee!
No – there is a proper combination of experience, equipment, and technique that is crucial to not only your safety but the effectiveness of your laser tattoo removal. Every removal is a sophisticated procedure, and all tattoos and people react differently to treatment. It is best performed by a professional. At Fusion not only do we have the best lasers in the business but the medical knowledge to safely and effectively remove tattoos.
Multiple treatments are necessary to fully remove your tattoo, and the number is dependent upon many things, including color but not necessarily size. Treatments are separated in time from a minimum of six to eight weeks to a few months, depending on your tattoo.
Tattoos can be treated nearly anywhere, including but not limited to the hands, arms, legs, feet, back, chest, stomach, and neck.
Yes – tattoo artists will sometimes request that a tattoo be lightened before cover up work is done. This lightening of your old tattoo often allows for more choices in your cover up design and improves your new tattoo's result.
Most people go back to work or school on the same day as their treatment, or the next. Sometimes, patients who have large tattoos, multiple tattoos, or sleeves may choose to take a day off.
Laser tattoo removal is affordable. We cannot give you an accurate measure of your number of treatments and pricing without meeting with you first and seeing your actual tattoo.

Some tattoos are not good candidates, and not all tattoos are equally treatable. Since there is no way to give accurate answers over the phone or via the internet, we advise that you stop into our office for a free consultation.
