      Tattoo Removal Consultation

      Ageless Aesthetics MediSpa performs laser tattoo removal with an Q-Switched Er: YAG laser. The laser removes tattoo ink by breaking up the pigment colors with a high-intensity light beam. Black tattoo pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths, making it the easiest color to treat. Other colors can only be treated with a Q-Switched Er: YAG laser. To properly grade a tattoo for a better estimate on how many treatments it will take to remove the tattoo, we incorporate the use of the Kirby-Desai scale. This scale provides numerical values that are assigned to six parameters: skin type, location, color, amount of ink, scarring or tissue change and layering. Parameter scores are then added to yield a combined score that will show the estimated number of treatments needed for successful tattoo removal.

      Kirby Desai Tatoo Removal Scale

      Nearly 30% of people in the U.S. have at least one tattoo. Almost half of all millennials have one. But not all of them are happy with their decision. As many as 25% of those with a tattoo say they regret getting it and want the tattoo removed. Any patient wanting to schedule a laser tattoo removal appointment will first be required to have a laser tattoo removal consultation. After a medical history review and exam of the tattoo, the clinical supervisor, nurse practitioner will determine if you are a candidate for the treatment.

      During the consultation and calculation using the Kirby-Desai scale you will receive a quotation with pricing and estimated number of treatments needed to achieve your goals. The main factor to understand when seeking laser tattoo removal is you will need to have patience. It is not possible to rush laser tattoo removal treatments as most of the clearing of the ink is performed by your body. We see the best results if patients will wait 10 weeks between treatments to allow for the maximum clearing of the ink particles.

      All services are subject to New Mexico sales tax and the quotation is valid for 30 days from the time of consultation appointment. There is a $100.00 fee for the consultations that can be applied towards any product or service within 90 days of the consultation appointment.
