Regretting that tattoo? Laser tattoo removal treatments are one of the top, most effective methods to eliminate unwanted tattoos. However, the safest and best results always centre around a laser clinic that combines the right experience and the top equipment. At Dr. Cory Torgerson’s Laser Clinic, we treat tattoos of every size, shape, colour, and location. Our excellent safety record, reputable facility, and expert staff ensure top patient satisfaction. At our Toronto laser clinic, only a qualified Registered Nurse performs the laser tattoo removal sessions under the care and expertise of Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Cory Torgerson, so patients are assured of the best care and knowledge.
During a Laser Tattoo Removal session, the pulses of light from the laser are directed onto the tattoo, breaking up the tattoo pigment. Once the tattoo ink has been broken into much smaller particles, those particles are easily removed by the body’s natural filtering system. This cleansing and filtering of the ink takes place over several weeks, which is why it is important to space your treatments appropriately. The next time you come in, your tattoo will already be lighter than it was. Patient comfort is important, so at our laser office we use a combination of a topical numbing cream and pain medication to help the patient manoeuvre through the laser treatment process with ease. Most patients find the laser tattoo removal experience tolerable and better than they expected. They are able to return to their normal schedule immediately following the laser treatment.
Patients should expect to come back for more than one treatment to achieve the expected results, as tattoo removal typically requires multiple treatments. Each tattoo will be different, depending on shape, size, and colour, but all of these factors can be addressed during your free laser tattoo removal consultation, and a customized timeline can be personalized for you. As each laser tattoo removal session progresses, the ink gradually clears, and the tattoo intensity and appearance will fade. Each laser treatment will result in more clearance of the tattoo ink. Some patients are only looking to have their tattoo lightened to cover it with a new tattoo or improve the final result. This is also very possible with the Laser Tattoo technology in our Toronto office and can be discussed with you during your free consultation.
Cost can vary depending on the tattoo, and an accurate quote can be given in person during the consultation. If need be, our office does offer financing packages for patients in order to help them meet their goals and desired results.
