Gulf Coast Facial Plastics offers tattoo removal alongside our other aesthetic services. With as many as one in five Americans with tattoos desiring their removal at one time or another, it’s important that there be effective, efficient options out there to meet those desires.
While no procedure can guarantee the complete removal of every tattoo on every patient, the vast majority of patients find their results as great as they’d hoped.
Why remove your tattoos?
There are any number of reasons an individual might want to consider a tattoo removal procedure at our Panama City, FL, location. By far the most common reason for removal is, of course, simple regret; perhaps you no longer enjoy having a tattoo, perhaps you’ve lost your appreciation for the subject or find yourself unsatisfied with how it’s aging.
We also treat any number of patients looking to enter military service, as tattoos aren’t allowed to be visible below the sleeve or above the collar. Other professional environments might offer similar discouragement or limitations on visible tattoos, making tattoo removal a necessity for career development.
Finally, tattoo removal offers a fresh canvas for new ink. While many artists can work with or around existing tattoos, you’ll typically find you get better results resetting and starting fresh with a blank canvas. Cover-ups often require unusual design choices and result in less satisfactory art.
A few common questions:
Many of our prospective patients have certain questions in mind when they reach out to us. To make the process a little easier and help you make a more informed decision, we’ve put together a list of these questions and our answers for your convenience.
Q: How long does it take?
A: There’s no single answer for this, as it depends entirely on the tattoo you’re removing. Factors such as the age of the tattoo, the ink used, the colors, and skin type all go into determining the number of treatments necessary for a satisfactory removal. The average is 4-6 sessions, stubborn ones can take longer.
Q: Does it hurt?
A: Unfortunately, yes. Tattoo removal does hurt. We offer a local anesthetic option to numb the pain, if you’d like to make the removal a bit less exciting than the original tattooing.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: Pricing varies depending on the tattoo and other factors, though we’re proud to say we offer the lowest prices for tattoo removal in Panama City, FL, and the surrounding area. Contact us today to make an appointment or find out more.
