    Calgary Tattoo Removal & Modification

    Calgary Tattoo Removal & Modification Specialists

    While that old tattoo may have seemed like a great idea at the time, tattoo removal and modification have become more popular as people’s tastes change and they want a clear canvas. Luckily, there are many solutions for you to choose from.

    At Beacon Dermatology, we use a combination of two lasers to remove all colours of pigment for the most advanced tattoo removal in Calgary. The PicoSure Laser delivers skin-rejuvenating energy with photomechanical action and rapid speed, making your treatment 1000x faster than traditional laser treatments.

    The Spectra Q-Switch Laser is Hollywood’s go-to laser removal option due to its quick treatment time, short post-treatment downtime, and additional hyperpigmentation treatment. Both lasers remove the pigment of a tattoo, rejuvenate your skin, and clear up common concerns, such as hyperpigmentation and sun spots.

    Why Choose Beacon Dermatology for Your Tattoo Removal?

    Beacon Dermatology offers state-of-the-art tattoo removal technology that most clinics don’t offer. We stay up to date with the latest skin rejuvenation techniques and processes to always provide you with the best options and solutions for your tattoo removal.

    Our Tattoo Removal Technologies

    Beacon Dermatology offers two of the latest tattoo removal technologies, the PicoSure Laser and the Spectra Q-Switch Laser.

    PicoSure Laser

    The PicoSure laser is the world’s first picosecond laser. This laser’s energy specifically targets tattoo ink and shatters the particles into microscopic pieces, allowing your body to eliminate them naturally. PicoSure tattoo removal often requires fewer treatments than other tattoo removal lasers and can be used on blues, greens, reds, and stubborn black ink.

    Spectra Q-Switch Laser

    The Spectra Q-Switch Laser is the world’s leading tattoo removal choice. Not only does this laser quickly remove the pigment in your tattoo with little downtime, but Spectra mode gives you the Hollywood Laser Peel for ink-free skin and a bright complexion.

    Tattoo Removal FAQs


    Does tattoo removal hurt?

    Your pain levels depend entirely on your tolerance and the type of tattoo removal you choose. Many people say it is of a similar pain level to getting a tattoo, but with the latest technologies and the talented Beacon Dermatology team, you can have your tattoos removed much faster with less pain.


    How many treatments does it take to completely remove my tattoo?

    On average, it takes around 10-12 treatments to completely remove your tattoo, but that number will depend entirely on the removal method you choose, the size of your tattoo, and the colour/darkness of the ink.


    How should I prepare for my tattoo removal?

    To prepare for your tattoo removal treatment, we recommend the following:

    • Avoiding prolonged sun exposure.
    • Using sunscreen.
    • Wearing loose-fitting clothing to your appointments, especially in the area being treated.
    • Asking the team if you can take over-the-counter pain medication before your tattoo removal.

    What should I do after my tattoo removal?

    After your tattoo removal, you should:

    • Wash the treatment area twice daily with lukewarm water and a cleanser free of harsh chemicals.
    • Protect your skin from the sun.
    • Avoid picking at the treatment area, even if it’s flaking or scabbing.
    • Follow all aftercare instructions provided by the Beacon team and ask any questions if you think something is wrong.

    Is tattoo removal permanent?

    Yes, once your tattoo removal sessions are complete and your scars have healed, your tattoo will be gone permanently.
