Dr. Tattoff's meticulous clinicians rid bodies of undesirable ink using the pigment-pummeling prowess of laser light. Unlike scouring the area with a rubber eraser, laser tattoo removal penetrates skin's surface to fragment inky silhouettes into easily broken down chromophore particles. During 30-minute initial consults, licensed medical professionals apply the Kirby-Desai tattoo-removal scale, a widely-used scale founded in-house, to determine the exact number of sessions required for complete elimination. Rates are assessed per treatment based on the size of the area (inches 1–5 are $49 per square inch). The feeling of laser tattoo removal is typically compared to a rubber-band snap, but the skilled staff can apply a topical numbing agent to skin to minimize any discomfort from the laser. Most tats require 5–15 laser treatments for optimal results, though temporary tattoos may disintegrate in as few as zero sessions.
Dedicated solely to laser tattoo and laser hair removal, Dr. Tattoff clinics have performed more than 200,000 procedures total, and have garnered national attention from press such as the New York Times and People magazine. The business’s specialized approach relies on experience—procedures are performed by clinicians who have performed thousands of treatments each—and science, which is especially evident through the Kirby-Desai scale. Created in-house, the Kirby-Desai scale enables doctors to accurately determine how many treatments a tattoo needs for complete removal as well as the tattoo’s weight, in case patients want to mail it to their past selves as a warning. Dr. Tattoff devotes similar scrutiny to its laser hair-removal treatments, and the clinic backs both procedures with steadfast guarantees.
