People seek laser tattoo removal for many reasons. If you are seeking a clean canvas for a new tattoo or want to feel comfortable in your skin again The Untattoo Parlor can help.

Lasers set the standard for tattoo removal in Portland, Oregon. Past methods of removal left scars, required surgery, were painful and/or ineffective. In the hands of our trained, professional nurses  The UnTattoo Parlor seeks to safely and comfortably remove your unwanted ink.

How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

Tattoo removal is a process that requires patience. There are many variables that effect how quickly and effectively tattoo ink will fade. Density of the ink, color of the pigment and skin type are just a few. At The UnTattoo Parlor we see most tattoos disappear in  4-7 treatments spaced about 8-12 weeks apart. The laser makes it possible for your body’s immune system to carry away the tattoo ink by breaking it down into smaller and smaller fragments. Once the particles of ink have been broken down enough, the body’s white blood cells are able to gradually dispose of the pigment.

Here’s a video that describes how tattoo removal works and why picosecond technology is the most effective laser for removing pigment.

The Untattoo Parlor uses a Cutera Enlighten and a CynoSure PicoSure laser. These lasers break up ink more quickly and completely than older tools. Our lasers can remove a range of colors and densities, including green, blue and black ink.

We adjust the lasers for skin type and the size and color of the tattoo. The laser accurately targets the image, leaving your skin undamaged.

How Long Are The Treatments?

Treatments range from 2-20 minutes. Several sessions may be required. Small, single-colored tattoos are the quickest to remove. They may need only a single visit. Complex, large and multi-colored images take more work and may need multiple sessions.

Some tattoos lighten after the first treatment. Most are gone or nearly gone in 3-5 treatments. Your tattoo will continue to fade for 6-8 weeks. We schedule treatments 8 weeks apart to give the ink time to lighten. We’ll then evaluate your results to determine if more treatments are needed.

What Is Recovery Like?

After a treatment, you can resume normal activities, including showering and exercise. You may have temporary soreness, redness, swelling or blistering. A thin wound dressing protects your skin while it heals. You can remove the dressing after a few days.

Immediately after treatments you can resume normal activities, including showering and exercise. You should avoid heat and sun for a few days, and it’s a good idea to take it easy as your body recovers.

The Untattoo Parlor offers a professional environment supervised by experienced medical personnel. We have registered nurses and a board certified plastic surgeon on staff. Our Pearl District office is quiet and relaxing. Our caring staff looks after you, making sure you’re comfortable during your visit.

Our staff is composed of experienced, licensed nurses who will go the extra mile to show up for their patients and to provide them with the best care possible. If an appointment is missed or cancelled late, this cancellation not only takes away a spot on the schedule from another patient who might like to come in but also directly affects the salary of our nurses and the overhead of our business.

If you were scheduled for a Free Consultation, the Missed or Late Cancelled appointment fee will be $75. If you were on the schedule for a 30 Minute or a 1 Hour Treatment, the Missed or Late Cancelled appointment fee will be half of the amount of the total cost of your treatment.
