Laser Tattoo Removal

Tattoos are designed to last forever, but you can now give your skin a second chance. Advanced Laser Clinics of Shreveport is the first aesthetic practice in Shreveport-Bossier City to feature tattoo removal with the Astanza Duality laser.

About Laser Tattoo Removal

Laser tattoo removal works by sending high-intensity light energy into the skin. As the laser energy penetrates, it is absorbed by tattoo ink particles, which instantly shatter into tiny fragments.

Over the weeks following your treatment, the body’s immune system naturally flushes away the shattered ink, lightening the appearance of the tattoo. A series of treatments is used to lighten the tattoo until it can no longer be seen.

Advanced Laser Clinics of Shreveport is proud to offer the best laser tattoo removal technology in Northern Louisiana.

Our Astanza Duality laser has higher peak power to break down more ink with each treatment, removing your tattoo in fewer sessions. It is capable of quickly removing inks that other lasers leave behind.

The Duality laser works on black and colorful inks, and is safe for all skin tones.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a candidate for tattoo removal?

Virtually everyone with a tattoo is a candidate for tattoo removal ­– it is safe on all skin types. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, severely ill, or taking medication that causes light sensitivity, it is best to wait until later for starting treatment. If you have an allergy to your tattoo or a history of keloids, make sure to mention it during your consultation.

How many treatments will I need?

Most patients need at least 5 to 7 treatments (typically at least 6 weeks apart) to get complete removal results – you will see the tattoo lighten progressively with each treatment. Faded or old tattoos may require fewer treatments, while extremely dark tattoos may need more. Our Astanza laser removes tattoos faster than other lasers, so your tattoo will be removed in the fewest sessions possible.

What should I expect during my appointment?

During your consultation, your practitioner will examine your tattoo, provide a quote for treatment, and explain the procedure to you. During the treatment, we will cool your skin to numb it and then pulse the laser over your tattoo. The laser feels like “snapping” against your skin – most people say it feels comparable to getting a tattoo. The treatment lasts from a few seconds to a few minutes depending on the size and complexity of your tattoo.

How much does laser tattoo removal cost?

Advanced Laser Centers of Shreveport is proud to offer leading-edge laser treatments at affordable prices. During your consultation, we will provide a quote for treatment based on the size of your tattoo. Treatments start at $100, and we offer attractive package discounts.
