Prepare for Tattoo Removal

Ready for Your Appointment?

Lighten Up Laser Clinic suggests these simple tips for patients before coming in for an appointment.

  • We advise you to wear loose fitting clothes to allow easy access during your treatment. Appropriate clothing will also help bandages from being too tight or constricted against the treated area after your appointment.
  • Make sure the treatment site is clean. If the treatment area is covered in dense hair, we recommend shaving before your treatment. If you’re unsure whether or not you need to shave, our clinic provides razors if need be.
  • Numbing creams can be used one hour prior to your treatment and can be found at your local drugstore. However, keep in mind that we use the Zimmer Cryo cooling system to help numb the skin to -30°C before, during, and after your treatment, mitigating any pain associated with the laser.

If you have any questions or comments before your appointment, please visit our FAQs page or give us a call or text and one of our friendly staff members will be sure to assist you.
