How Much Does Laser Tattoo Removal Cost?

The average cost of laser tattoo removal ranges from $150-$600 per treatment.  However, the final price tag depends on several key factors, so it’s best to come to Laser Skin Care Center for a consultation and find out the exact cost of treatment.

What Factors Can Influence the Cost of Laser Tattoo Removal?


When it comes to the cost of laser tattoo removal, the type of technology used is an important variable.  Professionally applied tattoos come in a wide range of colors, so the type of laser used must be properly matched to remove the specific ink colors.   

At Laser Skin Care Center, we offer laser tattoo removal using the advanced Q-switched Alexandrite laser system.  This device safely removes both professional and amateur tattoos with excellent results.

Ink Color

The type and color of ink used will influence the number of treatments needed to remove your tattoo.  Black is the easiest tattoo color to remove because the pigment readily absorbs the laser light.   Other colors such as red, green, and orange are more challenging to remove.  Consequently, it is usually more expensive to erase tattoos with these colors.

Size of the Tattoo

The laser tattoo process is usually longer and more difficult for bigger tattoos, so they typically cost more to remove than smaller ones.   Large tattoos with multiple colors are the most difficult to fade due to the variety of ink pigments present. 

Skin Tone

Laser tattoo removal is effective for all skin types, but lasers work more efficiently on lighter skin tones with less pigment.  The laser light is attracted to the pigment in the tattoo ink.  Therefore, because darker skin has more pigment it absorbs some of the laser light, which means it is not entirely focused on the tattoo.  As a result, people with darker skin often require more treatments to achieve satisfying results, and this will push up the final cost.  

Age of the Tattoo

Older tattoos are easier to remove because the body naturally breaks down some of the ink over time, so fewer treatments are required to erase it.  Newer tattoos have a higher concentration of ink; therefore, more treatments are needed.

Laser Tattoo Removal Results

The success of laser tattoo removal also depends on the skill and expertise of the laser technician.  Our experienced laser tattoo removal specialists here at Laser Skin Care Center will develop a personalized treatment plan for you to remove your unwanted tattoo safely, and efficiently.
