Omaha's Safe and Effective Tattoo Removal Option
How Laser Tattoo Removal Works
Laser tattoo removal works by breaking down the ink particles which allows your immune system to start the process of removing the ink from your skin.
The two types of laser technology to remove ink are known as nanosecond and picosecond. Nanosecond lasers run at a billionth of a second while picosecond lasers run at a trillionth of a second.
Nanosecond was the standard until recent years and works better with larger particles of ink. Nanosecond lasers were effective at lightening the tattoo, but would often struggle to completely remove the tattoo as ink particles became smaller. This would would often lead to a faded tattoo that was unable to be completely removed.
A few years ago, the picosecond laser was developed to completely remove particles of ink towards the end of treatment.
Our Cutera enlighten® laser works by combining nanosecond with picosecond for the quickest and safest removal possible.
Nano + Pico Technology
Safe for All Skin Types
Effective for All Colors of Ink
Early laser tattoo removal devices could not work on dark skin and they would struggle to remove red, and green tattoos.
Our laser has three different wavelenghts, 1064, 532, and 670 allowing us to safely treat all skin types and remove even the most stubborn colors of ink.
Why Choose Us?
Each year, it is estimated that over 45,000 people will start the process of tattoo removal. Unfortunately, many of them will use out of date lasers that will damage their skin and they will still be left with visible ink.
Since January of 2016, we have helped hundreds of clients remove their unwanted tattoos. Unlike outdated laser technology, our laser works on every skin type and all colors of ink except white.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does it hurt?
Tattoo removal can be uncomfortable. We make it as painless as we can with the use of a pre-treatment numbing cream.
Will it leave scars?
Older methods of tattoo removal carried a high risk of scarring due to the thermal trauma caused to skin tissue. Enlighten’s superior technology in the hands of our skilled team means scarring is unlikely.
Will the tattoo be visible after treatment?
In most cases, tattoos disappear entirely. Certain ink colors are more difficult to clear than others. We will make sure you understand what to expect during your initial consultation.
What is the aftercare?
We recommending keeping the area out of direct sun for two weeks after each visit and to not go swimming in any non-chlorinated water (rivers, lakes) for two-weeks after treatment.
How much does it cost?
You can expect to spend $500-$3,500 depending on the size. “Sleeve” tattoos may cost more. Customers pay as they go and we do offer discounts for multiple and larger tattoos.
How long do I wait between treatments?
We recommend waiting at least 8 weeks between treatments to give your immune system enough time to remove the ink particles.
How long does an appointment take?
Most first time appointments last about thirty minutes which includes time for paperwork. Follow-up treatments typically can be done in about 15-20 minutes.
How long will it take for complete removal?
Most tattoos can be removed within six to eight treatments.

Where do i start... This treatment truly works. My face tattoo was holding me back from my true potential in life. With only five treatments my face tattoo was gone. The staff are super cool and friendly and very informational on the process of my removal. I give five stars because they rock. Thank you so much.R. Johnson
i’m in the process of removing some pretty stubborn hand tattoos and have only had 2 treatments so far. both times I’ve been there they have always been very informative about the process and the doctor explains everything about the laser equipment in detail. i actually look forward to my appointments there, it’s a pretty fascinating experience. they seem to use the most up to date technology that is available, and maintain a very clean environment.T.
