Unlike medical spas, laser salons, or physicians, Prosper Laser Tattoo Removal specializes in removing unwanted ink. We understand you and your needs and want nothing more than to make you feel happy and confident in your skin. We are a judgment free zone! We understand that every tattoo has their own story and every patient has their own motivation for wanting to remove their tattoo. Our main goal is to deliver exceptional removal results using safe protocols and advanced laser technology.
How does laser tattoo removal work?
Prosper Laser Tattoo Removal uses the advanced Astanza Duality Q-switched laser to break up tattoo ink particles in your skin. The laser sends pulses of light energy safely through your skin to target and shatter unwanted ink pigment. Over a series of treatments, the laser continuously breaks up your tattoo while your immune system naturally disposes of the ink particles.

How many treatments will I need?
This question is very hard to answer without seeing the tattoo in person. Many variables need to be assessed in order to determine the number of treatments you and your unique tattoo will need. On average, most patients require at least 5 to 10 treatments. Patients with older/faded tattoos may require as little as 3 to 4 treatments. Prosper Laser Tattoo Removal provides FREE consultations to assess your tattoo in person and best estimate the number of treatments you will need. A few factors that we use to assess your tattoo are tattoo age, tattoo location, ink density, ink depth, patient health, and pre-existing scarring.
Does the laser hurt?
Majority of patients say the laser feels similar to having a rubber band snapped against the skin. Few say the laser feels like getting a tattoo applied all over again, and others say the pain is tolerable. Every patient will react to the laser differently based on their pain tolerance. Luckily, laser tattoo removal treatment times are extremely short. Depending on the size of the tattoo being treated, a treatment session can take anywhere from 1 to 30 minutes. Prosper Laser Tattoo Removal also provides skin numbing solutions to help maximize patient comfort and mitigate any pain associated with the laser.
How long is the entire laser tattoo removal process?
Laser tattoo removal treatments are spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart to allow your immune system enough time to remove the ink and give your skin time to heal. That being said, a patient that only needs three treatments may see complete removal in just a few months whereas a patient with ten treatments may take up to a year. This procedure may be lengthy, but the results are well worth the wait!

Can you lighten my tattoo or remove a specific part my tattoo?
Yes! Many people seek laser tattoo removal to make room for a cover-up tattoo. Lightening a cover-up tattoo can give your tattoo artist more flexibility with their design. In addition, our laser features a flat-top homogenized spot beam that makes it easy for us to remove specific parts of a tattoo while leaving the surrounding design unharmed. Prosper Laser Tattoo Removal delivers the best tattoo removal treatment for all tattoo needs throughout Dallas. Call our clinic today and ask about our lightening treatments.
