Are you regretting your tattoo? You are not alone, a study found that one in four people regrets getting a tattoo. Thankfully, with the rise of technology and lasers tattoo removal is not as painful, quicker and easier than ever before.
Dr. Bolger at Medical Aesthetics and Wellness Center has exemplary experience removing unwanted tattoos for patients in Davenport, IA.
Is Tattoo Removal Painful?
At Medical Aesthetics and Wellness Center we make tattoo removal as pain-free as possible. Since, we have a physician on site, we have various methods to manage pain:
We have a separate medical cooling device that cools the skin to -30 degrees to dull pain
We can use both injected or topical anesthetic
We can use laughing gas anesthesia for very large tattoos
How long will the treatment last?
Treatment time depends on the size of the tattoo. It can be 10 minutes but up to 45 minutes. The ink of the tattoo will “frost” and the surrounding skin will be red and somewhat inflamed.

Frequently Asked Questions
How many sessions do I need to erase my tattoo 100%?
Although many tattoos can be faded 100%, it is sometimes not possible. It also depends if patient would like to fade or treat until there isn’t any further improvement (we call this “treat to complete”). The number of sessions also depend on the type of ink used, the depth of the ink, age of the tattoo and color. Blue and greens are the hardest colors to fade.
Are all tattoos removable? Full black tattoos too?
All tattoos can be lightened however blues and greens are the hardest color to remove and may require additional treatments.
Will my skin look different in that area?
The ink of the tattoo will “frost” and the surrounding skin will be red and somewhat inflamed. Due to the nature of the procedure, the skin may appear lighter.
Can I get another tattoo in the skin area where I received the treatment?
Yes, once the skin is healed. It can take up to 4 weeks from the last appointment.
Do you offer a guarantee?
We offer a guarantee that your tattoo will be removed in 6 treatments or less or we will “treat to complete” with unlimited sessions until your tattoo no longer fades.
