Tattoo Removal

When you were younger, that tattoo seemed like the perfect way to express yourself – but now you find yourself wishing it could vanish. The solution for tattoo removal in Spokane, WA, and Coeur d’Alene, ID, awaits you at Advanced Aesthetics. Dr. Kevin M. Johnson and his team, true to their mission, continue to provide the latest cutting-edge, minimally invasive cosmetic laser technology available.

That includes the state-of-the-art PicoWay® laser by Candela and the PicoSure® laser by Cynosure®. These cutting-edge lasers treat tattoos of every color safely and effectively in fewer treatments and can treat even the most stubborn tattoos that have previously been resistant to other lasers and treatments.

About PicoSure® and PicoWay®

PicoSure often makes a good option for laser tattoo removal because it’s capable of producing different wavelengths for customized, complete removal. The adjustable wavelengths enable this laser to remove a variety of colors, including stubborn blue and green inks — traditionally very difficult to clear — with a high degree of safety.

The secret to PicoSure’s effectiveness is delivering energy in trillionths of a second, shattering the tiny particles that make up pigment and tattoo ink, without building up heat that can damage surrounding tissue and cause more discomfort.

The PicoSure system utilizes patented PressureWave™ technology which produces superior disruption of the tattoo ink with fewer treatments. This innovation triggers an enhanced inflammatory healing response that results in a quicker, more efficient tattoo removal without the thermal damage caused by other lasers.

With even faster impulses than the PicoSure, we are excited to share that we have acquired another top end picosecond laser, the PicoWay® by Candela. This FDA-cleared laser produces pulses so quick the skin is not heated during treatment. Ink is shattered by a photoacoustic blast that turns it into particles that the immune cells in your body can scavenge and remove. Because the PicoWay® has 3 wavelengths of laser energy, it effectively treats a wider range of tattoo colors than many other lasers, and it removes the tattoo in fewer treatments. Patients can be treated every 6 weeks. Little downtime is required.

What Our Patients Say

“I went into the Coeur d’Alene office for a consultation for a tattoo removal. I have many tattoos but I have one that I decided I didn’t love. The office was beautiful and the customer service was outstanding! It hasn’t even been a full 24 hours and I already have seen my tattoo fade tremendously. I am extremely satisfied so far. Thank you so much to everyone at Advanced Aesthetics!”

I've been traveling an hour each way to get to this office for my tattoo removal... and let me tell you, the drive is worth it. Best laser (pico-sure) in the region. Amazing staff as well. 🙂 After almost 20 years of hating my tattoos, I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. I've had 6 sessions so far and my tats are allllmost gone. Worth every penny.

I am currently getting laser hair treatment and tattoo removal here and I am very pleased with the entire process. I was given free treatments due to COVID interfering with our scheduled laser treatments. I have been working with Erin for over a year and she never is in a rush or stressed about having school and work. I was told I was not a good candidate for waxing so I was referred to Advanced Aesthetics and would recommend to a family member or friend.

My experience here has been outstanding from time of making my appointment to arriving at my first laser hair removal visit. Leslie at the front desk is so kind and helpful and takes her time answering questions. Meghan, the very experienced master aesthetician, shared at least 30 minutes with me before getting the procedure. It felt authentic, kind, safe, professional, fun, and calm. She felt like a true supportive medical professional and friend with down to earth real advice and experience with struggles as a woman. She listened respectfully, shared her wisdom, and definitely helped me feel at ease and empowered to do a procedure I have wanted for years but did not know where to go. The actual process of laser hair removal was not hard or scary. She is such a professional and really made me feel at ease and safe. I am excited to learn more about skin care and products from Advanced Aesthetics and definitely trust their advice and expertise. Thank you so much!!

How Much Does Laser Tattoo Removal Cost?

Tattoo removal with the PicoWay® laser starts at $150. Your actual and total costs will depend on your tattoo’s colors, inks, and size. Typically, multiple treatments are required for desired results. You will be given a personalized quote as part of your consultation.

Procedure

At our practice in Spokane, tattoo removal treatment is precisely customized depending on your tattoo’s ink and your skin’s pigmentation. We use the PicoSure and PicoWay lasers to target the ink, breaking it down into minute particles. These particles subsequently are gradually removed by your body’s natural cleansing processes.

The technology used by each of the lasers is similar. PicoSure® was the world’s first laser to use PressureWave technology, specifically targeting the tattoo ink. And now PicoWay delivers the same picosecond technology in 3 wavelengths of laser energy to remove all colors of ink and photoacoustic technology results in minimal downtime. Both of these lasers often require fewer sessions than previous older traditional lasers required.

As the laser energy is delivered into the tattoo skin, quick flashes of light energy are emitted and you will hear a snapping sound. Chilled air is used on your skin during the treatment to improve comfort. The entire tattoo is treated each time ensuring complete removal of all colors of ink. Wavelengths of light are occasionally adjusted during the treatment of future treatments as the ink removal progresses. While these treatments are quick, they do involve discomfort during the procedure (similar in intensity to receiving the original tattoo). Pain after the procedure is limited to a sunburn sensation or less. There is no need for pain medication and none is prescribed.

How Many Sessions Does It Take To Remove a Tattoo?

In most cases, tattoos that were professionally performed need 8 to 15 treatments, while amateur tattoos need about 4 sessions. Dr. Johnson usually spaces the treatments 6 to 8 weeks apart and will develop a treatment protocol designed to help you get ideal tattoo removal results.

Laser tattoo removal is unique for each patient, depending on:

  • Tattoo size
  • Number of tattoos
  • Colors used in the tattoo

How Long Does a Tattoo Removal Session Take?

While actual treatment times vary, most are less than an hour because we use the most advanced laser technology.

Recovery

There is minimal to no downtime after a treatment session. Initially, the skin may be slightly pink; it is important to avoid the sun while the area is healing.

Request your complimentary consultation online or call us at (509) 209-2171 to schedule an appointment at our center in Coeur d’Alene or Spokane for your tattoo removal consultation.
