Remove unwanted tattoos with Laser Tattoo Removal
Under the guidance of board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon Dr. Joel Schlessinger, Schlessinger MD in Omaha, Nebraska, offers over 25 years of laser tattoo removal experience, as well as other laser treatments such as hair removal, IPL or Intense Pulse Light, Fraxel and more.
Laser tattoo removal has evolved dramatically over the years. Advances in the technology have made it more effective in tackling many different color pigments and sizes. The treatment itself is individualized and the process involved depends more on the color and overall size of the tattoo rather than on the design.
Our team providers and Dr. Schlessinger will closely analyze the tattoo’s structure to develop the ideal treatment plan for each individual patient. Cost for removal varies according to the size, location, color and quality of the tattoo. Dr. Schlessinger and his team perform a method called ‘the stacked’ treatment, which can dramatically shorten the number of sessions necessary for removal by performing the equivalent of four treatments in one session. We use a special patch, the Describe Patch, that allows for more treatments to be safely done during the same session.
Individuals who are interested in having their tattoo(s) removed, for any reason, will need to schedule a free virtual consultation in order for our providers to assess whether or not you’d be a good candidate for this to treatment.
Information about the treatment itself will be reviewed during the consultation. Our team of providers are trained to review the laser tattoo removal process, so patients know what to expect before, during and after this treatment. Any questions or concerns that patients might have about laser tattoo removal can be addressed with our providers during the virtual consultation.
Cost of laser tattoo removal
The price of laser tattoo removal varies based on several factors, including the size and coloration of the tattoo and its location on the body. Patients will be quoted and advised of all costs associated with their treatment at the time of their consultation.
I had a consultation for laser tattoo removal. Everyone from the front desk receptionist to the nurses and doctors that assisted were incredibly friendly. I had Dr. Schlessinger for my initial consultation and he walked me through how the process would work and what I could expect. While waiting for the nurse I was shown a video about tattoo removal and that was extremely helpful as I haven’t been through the process at this location. I have previously had laser tattoo removal at another place in Omaha and the difference was insane! The last place I went didn’t offer to numb it and did not give me anything to help with the pain. The last place flew through it in about 10 minutes and never changed the laser (even though I have many different colors in my tattoo). The nurse at Skin Specialists gave me the option for numbing the area, which I didn’t do since it is such a large tattoo and I have gone through the process without numbing before. They did however provide Pro-nox which provided relief from the pain. The nurse took her time and talked me through the process as she was doing it. They changed the lasers and the strength a few times through the process. I was SHOCKED at how little this actually hurt, especially compared to the other place I have gone in the past. The care and the time the staff took to help me with this was very much appreciated and I had a great experience. I can’t recommend Skin Specialists enough!
