What are the cost and benefits of laser tattoo removal treatment in Beverly Hills, CA?
In Beverly Hills, CA, many patients faced with an unwanted tattoo may feel as though they have no choice other than to strategically cover the tattoo with another.

This treatment has many benefits and is cost-effective for patients serious about removing the ink from their skin.
What is laser tattoo removal?
Laser tattoo removal is the use of PicoSure, which breaks down the ink in the skin. This allows the body to naturally absorb the inks and eliminate them. Dr. Dennis Dass is proud to invest in his patients with solutions such as this. Laser tattoo removal using PicoSure has many benefits. It is:
Laser tattoo removal is a process. It is important for patients to understand that the treatment is not just a “once and done” session. Instead, it requires several sessions to achieve the desired results. With each treatment, patients will notice the tattoo fading, but for full removal, many sessions may be required. The number varies depending on several factors, including:
- The color of the ink
- The quality of the ink
- How long the tattoo has been on the skin
- The size of the tattoo
During the initial consultation, Dr. Dennis Dass will assess the size and quality of the tattoo and give patients a general estimate as to how many treatment sessions may be required for results. Then, patients will schedule their sessions and arrive for their treatments as needed.
Who is a candidate for laser tattoo removal?
Laser tattoo removal can be performed on patients of all skin types and colors, as well as any types of tattoos. This makes it a versatile solution and allows everyone to benefit from this service.
How much does laser tattoo removal cost?
While relatively affordable, it is difficult to give a quote without the doctor evaluating the skin. Our Board-certified plastic surgeon can assess the tattoo and determine how many sessions may be required to achieve results. This will vary from patient to patient, so a consultation is essential in getting a quote for cost.
What can I expect before, during, and after my treatments?
Before PicoSure laser tattoo removal, patients undergo an assessment with our doctor. The doctor will apply a topical anesthetic on the skin to reduce discomfort, and then the device is used along the skin. The laser light feels like a slight snapping sensation which is relatively well-tolerated by our patients when they have had the anesthetics applied to their skin. The laser light is applied across the tattoo in even rows until the entire area is covered. Once finished, patients are given aftercare instructions for the treatment area. Most patients can go about the rest of their day following their session, though they may notice some sensitivity in the treatment area. This is completely normal and will subside within a day or two. The next treatment is scheduled weeks later, and during this time, patients may see noticeable changes in their tattoo. The colors become less vibrant and it appears the tattoo is fading. This is due to the breakdown of the inks that are absorbed into the body safely and effectively.
