Laser Tattoo Removal Overview

How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

Here at Fresh Start – Austin laser tattoo removal clinic, we want your entire laser tattoo removal experience to be as pleasant and easy as possible. We believe in educating our patients from start to finish, to ensure you feel informed, comfortable, and confident heading into your treatment. This page unravels the secret behind tattoo permanency and how our lasers work to remove them.

Tattoo-Skin Interaction

Tattoo Application in Austin, TexasThe reason tattoos are permanent is because they are embedded into the deepest layer of skin, the dermis. When a tattoo is applied, your immune system recognizes the ink as a foreign substance and sends macrophages to remove them immediately upon insertion. Macrophages are a special type of white blood cell that eat up bacteria and other small particles.

Although the macrophages continuously eat away at the pigment particles over time, the deep insertion and large size of the ink particles makes them difficult to remove. This explains why tattoos remain permanently etched in the skin but gradually fade and lose color over time.

The Laser Tattoo Removal Process

A001_C035_0312IMLaser tattoo removal helps speed up the natural fading process of tattoos by using light energy to break down the large ink particles. During treatment, our state-of-the-art Astanza Trinity laser gently emits ultra-quick pulses of light energy into the skin. Each pulse of light energy is absorbed by the ink particles, causing them to shatter into tiny fragments that are small enough for the macrophages to dispose of. Over a series of treatments, our laser will continue to break down the ink particles while you witness your tattoo gradually fade until no ink is visible in the skin.

Most patients need multiple treatments before achieving complete removal. The number of treatments needed is unique to you and your tattoo. Fresh Start Laser Tattoo Removal Clinic uses a variety of factors to best estimate the number of treatments you will need to achieve the look that you want.

Unlike other tattoo removal methods, laser technology is completely safe, extremely effective, and noninvasive. Our lasers gently penetrate through the skin into the dermis to specifically target the unwanted ink without causing harm to the surrounding skin tissue.

I had my consultation about 2weeks ago with Joseph. He was very informative about the process and made me feel very comfortable about going into everything. Today I had my first session with Nina. I’m choosing to remove a medium 6y/o black ink tattoo on the back of my right shoulder. Nina was super nice and very comforting throughout the entire session. Definitely felt that I was in good hands and felt very well taken care of through it all...Which is very important to me personally being that I don’t have the highest pain tolerance and am a fainter. They have sodas/water and lollipops in the lobby so I grabbed some of those going into it. I felt fine during the session (it kind of felt like a bunch of rubber bands snapping you).After the session my hearing started to go and I started shaking and feeling faint, but Nina laid me down and used the cool air to cool me. So I was able to come out of that feeling pretty quick... like within a minute.Pain wise, it wasn’t the worst. I’d give it a 6.5 maybe 7 out of 10 (on my scale).read more

Just had my first session completed with Joesph and he was great! I was really nervous going into the procedure but he made sure I was comfortable the whole time and worked at my pace. Their prices are a steal for the treatment provided. Also, they have the best waiting room. I highly recommend Fresh Start Laser Tattoo Removal.read more

Nina is AMAZING!!!!! Fresh Start is normally closed on Sunday's but she was nice enough to schedule me for today because of my work schedule. When I got there she was very professional. She explained everything to me in detail and stopped several times to ask me if I had any questions. Even though what I was having done was very small she didn't treat it that way. On top of Nina's excellent customer service, their office was extremely clean which was a big plus for me. I definitely look forward to my next session.read more

Today was my very first session. Believe me after watching YouTube videos and reading the internet articles, I’m not going to lie I was scared. I walked in and felt at ease. It’s very clean and welcoming. Nina definitely helped to make it a comfortable experience. She answered all my questions and made me feel more relaxed about my decision to have this done. I actually feel excited about my future and I am definitely happy I took the first step. It was very fast and I was able to more done than even thought I would. Thank you so much for everything and being so professional. I will definitely be recommending you to everyone I know.read more

My experience with Fresh Start Laser Tattoo has been very pleasent. The staff made me feel comfortable. The consultation with her was very detailed and informative. I went to two other places and they where way over priced and very uncomfortable therefore i was very happy i could find somewhere that looked very clean, great price, and also very welcoming. Nina looks young but she is very professional, funny, and knowledgeable. I am very happy with my service. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone!read more

Had my first session yesterday and was actually having a not so great day and Nina completely turned my whole day around!

This was the best tattoo removal clinic that I have ever been to. The clinic itself is very clean and it’s a modern atmosphere/vibe which makes it very comfortable. Anthony was easy to talk to, funny, and explained everything well. I would definitely come back to this place AND recommend everyone to go here. I had previously gone to Eraser Clinic for my consultation and I didn’t really like it at all. My consultation here at Fresh Start was informative and I was able to get started that day.

I had my second appointment today! The people there are very knowledgeable about the tattoo removal process. The business is very clean. The staff makes you feel comfortable and relaxed! I rate it a 5 star. Well maintained business! Thank You very much for the good results!I thought I’d give Nina another good review. I just had my third treatment and things went well. Before I knew it Nina was done. We talked for about 5 minuets and then it was over. My tattoo is probably hand size on my neck and kinda painful the second time but even though she turned it up this time, just her keeping me busy talking it wasn’t painful at at! I have to say Nina your an awesome person with great prices! Absolutely amazing. Can’t wait to get this blob off my neck! I’m glad I make you smile and crack you up! That’s what I do! Thank you very much for being such an awesome person. See you in December! Christopherread more

Love the staff here, they have made me feel very comfortable and eased my nervousness about tattoo removal. They are very friendly, knowledgeable, and I have to mention funny too! I feel like they really do care about their patients. I am only on my second treatment but so far so good. My tattoo is fading and has healed great both times. For me, the laser feels kind of like rubber bands snapping on my skin but it's more of an uncomfortable feeling rather than a feeling of pain. The ice pack before treatment is the worst part of it all, if I had to choose. The clinic is clean and very welcoming and there are snacks and drinks available as well. Oh and can't forget that the prices are very reasonable! I would definitely recommend this place, they've hit the mark on everything!!read more

I thought Samantha was super nice and professional when treating my tattoo. She clearly knew what she was doing and talking about as far as how the treatment works, what to expect, a fair price, and overall she always makes my visit worthwhile. As far as the tattoo removal process is going, it is definitely something you'll have to be patient with no matter where you go, but here I feel they are doing a good job at making it fade at a decent pace and not damaging my skin. I recommend this place to anyone needing a tattoo removed.read more

Where do i start? I'm still overwhelmed by the whole experience... Nina was more than welcoming & accommodating to my needs. i arrived from Houston a little earlier than expected so i called & asked where's a good place to eat nearby.They were more than helpful even with my nervous stomach.Nina happened to be just finishing up another appointment as i arrived, everyone even the front desk clerk was more than helpful with any question i had & they offered snacks. lol me being from Houston traveling all the way to Austin was well worth the drive for the respect & care i received.... my next treatment is 6 weeks from now & i can't wait to make the drive again!10/10 would recommend to anyone needing to get laser tattoo removal the cleanliness & atmosphere of the shop felt like i was @ home.

Definitely a five star rating for each visit. I would give more stars but Google's stingy. Let me tell you who wasn't stingy, a lovely young lady named Nina. Since day one she's been a pleasure to work with. She had a nice presentation with videos, before and after pics, explaining the procedure. The procedure itself wasn't as bad as I thought it would be pain wise. It was like getting my tattoo removed by an Angel with a laser in one hand and a cold air nosel in the other, working diligently to remove my past. She took good care, was nothing but nice and made me feel at ease while she zapped away at my arm. After it was over, she sent me home with a goody bag with after care items and clear instructions. Oh yeah and she gave me a lollipop. I would definitely recommend this place to friends.read more

Very happy with my fist treatment, the technicians are amazing! No pressure relaxing atmosphere. The treatment itself was quick and almost completely painless. The tattoo I am having removed is on my hand and the ice pack used before the treatment caused more discomfort for me than the actual treatment itself. I am glad I have found this place and would absolutely recommend them for tattoo removal. I'm extremely pleased with the initial results and look forward to having future treatments. (I will update when all treatments are done)read more

I'd give Fresh Start 10 stars if I could! Extremely friendly and completely thorough. The entire process was explained to me and they keep solid records of the treatment received. I left with a clear understanding of my aftercare procedures as well. I've worked with other tattoo removal places previously and they're a sham by comparison to Fresh Start. The office is clean and accommodating, and Anthony is an absolute pleasure. If I had the time, I'd go early and hang out a bit before my sessions! 🙂read more

One word...awesome. I have a tattoo that I no longer desire. I've had two laser removal treatments before moving to the area and was adamant about completing the treatment once I got settled. So I waltz into Fresh Start thinking I'm going to get my third session and one step closer to getting rid of my tattoo. Instead, I was told "not today". All for good reasons. Number one, Fresh Start actually care about their clients. I was given a detailed explanation on how their laser work and it's affects on a person of color such as myself. I was informed to delay treatment because the last company used a strength that was too strong for my complexion and caused hyper pigmentation to the treated area. Fresh start advised that I let my body continue to heal and once the area lightened I could resume treatments. I am happy I found Fresh Start. I left the office well informed, with a feeling of importance and not the feeling of "just another number". I would highly recommend Fresh Start.read more

I recommend Fresh Start Laser Tattoo Removal for anyone in need of a tattoo removal. The staff is extremely friendly and actually care about getting to know you. The procedure was explained in great detail then we went right along with the removal phase 1. It was nearly painless, and they ice the area before hand so you are numb. No your tattoo will not go away after one treatment, they told me a minimum of 4-6. But it is definitely worth it! Very professional and inviting atmosphere and staff.read more

They made me feel welcome as soon as I walked in and offered me a beverage several times (I had my tea mixture so I was okay with what I had) but the fact that they go to make everyone feel comfortable and calm is remarkable. I'm so glad I came upon this business, if I could rate higher then a 5 star I would - this is how much I loved it. What's even more amazing about this business is it's very reasonably priced for the tattoos that you have andwant removed. I can't wait for my next experience.read more

After shopping around online I decided to drive out to Fresh Start to see what it would cost to get a tattoo removed and how long. The moment I entered the door I was taken in by the relaxing, professional atmosphere of the waiting area. Not even moments after I arrived was I greeted by one of there friendly team members and offered refreshments. They made sure I was at ease and comfortable as they asked me to come back to one of the rooms for the consultation. I met one of the professionals that perform the procedures and he was immediately prepared to take me through all of the details involving how it works, what is involved, and what I can expect. I was already knowledgeable of the laser tattoo procedure but it was nice that they didn't give that rush treatment. So many times it is hard to find a doctor that isn't about completing a transaction, in this case I was there priority and no one else during the whole visit. Answered the questions I had, I left a little more educated about the process, realistic expectations of how long it would take, and estimated cost. Do not plan to get more estimates....... sometimes people get it right the first time, regardless of distance, make the time to come in, they will not disappoint. Professional, reasonable, and attentive to your needs. I am looking forward to continued business with them.read more

I feel a relief seeing results so quickly. It is absolutely amazing. And way less painful than getting a tattoo for sure. AND to top it all off, only took a few minutes before, a few during, and a few after and I was drinking coffee scheduling my next tattoo removal. Didn't cost nearly as much as I thought it would be. Seriously can't even begin to express how truly happy I am. Ill be forever thankful.read more

They took the time to explain the entire process, what is optimal for my skin type, the careful step up treatment, and what to expect in the end. There were no surprises and were more than fair with the pricing. On top of their world class service, the results they provide is amazing. My tattoo has faded considerably with only two sessions.

To start, the instant response and phone etiquette was amazing! I am so appreciative of the since of urgency that was implemented. Time is of the essence when you're trying to heal in time to enlist by a certain date. They got me in three days later! The office was immaculate and the staff was super friendly and very relaxed (this is important as the concept of this procedure can be intimidating to some.) Everything was throughly explained to me and the process went seamlessly! They are all about ensuring you know what to, realistically, expect pain wise and result wise and control those elements to the best of there ability. Definitely felt the love from my future military brothers! Thank you for everything thus far and I can confidently say that I will definitely enjoy the rest of this process! Y'all are awesome!read more

I just had a tattoo removal session today with Anthony and I am very happy with my experience. First of all every stuff there are super nice and friendly. The office is so clean and neat, coffee and other drinks and even light snacks are provided and they just want to make sure that you are comfortable. It is hard to encounter that kind of service anywhere.The consultation was superior with deeper educational materials provided than my previous tattoo removal clinic. The procedure its self was painless that I even worried if it was doing anything but the technic they do to numb the skin before the removal was excellent. I was happy I didn't feel any bit of pain and still got good sign/frosting on my tattoo. Omg, I only have positive things to say!read more

When I walked in the place, I love it already! It's clean and fresh!!! Anthony was there to help me out... He is so patient, explaining everything, making sure I feel good and not scared! I did not feel any pain during the procedure or after. Anthony is so warm and friendly that actually made me feel confident to do. Before I walked in Fresh Start, the only concern that I had was pain level... Now I can tell everyone, it's nothing! It's really nothing!!!I want to say thanks to Anthony!!read more

I've been looking for a place to get my tattoo removed for a while but have been putting it off for a couple years. I went to atomic tattoo for a referral and they recommended this place. In only a few minutes of speaking to Anthony and learning he is a fellow marine veteran, I knew I was at the right spot. We instantly connected and he was very thorough with describing the process and making the appointment go by so smoothly. The laser treatment went by great and didn't feel much pain because Anthony was very good at having a conversation with me while he did the treatment. I highly recommend this place and the prices are very reasonable. Thank you Anthony.read more

My son in trying to get into the army however he has (or should I say had) stars in the webbing between his thumb and forefinger on both hands that was preventing him from joining. Fresh start laser clinic was recommended by the recruiting office. I called Fresh start laser clinic and made an appointment on the same day. We arrived early and was immediately seen. The procedure was thoroughly explained and was very fast and gentle. Also the gentleman preforming the tattoo removal was funny and down to earth. I'm beyond impressed. I highly recommend Fresh start laser clinic!read more

Wow! Incredibly clean facilities with a modern vibe and very gracious/knowledgeable owners.. An all around fantastic place to get a tattoo removal. I was originally overpaying for subpar quality removal. Anthony made me feel very welcomed, and gave me a great deal of knowledge that I was previously unaware of. He is helping me towards my dream while offering the best of the best service. They may be a new office, but they know what they're doing!! They really care about the client and what's best for you.read more

Anthony was wonderful!!! This company is promoting FREE TATTOO REMOVAL for civilians who are joining the military(like myself) as well as discounted prices for vets and military personnel. His prices are great. This is the third place I have had a tattoo removal session done and I will never go anywhere else. He takes you step by step and explains EVERYTHING. It is a quick process and he is very upbeat and professional. Very nice. It is a CLEAN place and they even offer complimentary snacks and beverages while you wait. I recommend this place to anyone needing tattoo removal!read more
