What to Expect
As the number of tattoos applied each year continues to increase, so does the number of people seeking to either revise, lighten, or remove their tattoos altogether.
Erie Laser Professionals understands that a lifestyle change, a change in personal taste, new relationships, or a career search can elicit the desire for tattoo removal or revision. Over 40 million Americans have tattoos and nearly 60% of them have considered having at least one of them removed. If you are one of these people, Erie Laser Professionals can help.
Types of Services
Our technicians are highly knowledgeable and familiar with the tattoo industry. Erie Laser Professionals has the only Astanza Trinity laser in northwestern Pennsylvania. This laser was developed specifically for the tattoo removal industry and is used by the nationally renowned West Coast laser tattoo removal franchise, Dr. Tattoff. Its extremely brief, yet powerful, pulses of light energy target the tattoo ink itself, causing it to shatter. In the weeks following treatment the shattered ink particles are flushed out of the body by the lymphatic system. The tattoo will continue to fade after each treatment until maximum results are achieved.
Age Spot Treatment
This is the treatment of hyper-pigmentation (too much unwanted color) in the skin. Factors contributing to the appearance of dark spots on the skin include sun exposure, hormone changes, genetics, trauma, and aging. Hyper-pigmentation and age spots are usually found on the face, chest, and hands, but can develop anywhere on the body.
Darker skin tones are more susceptible to areas of hyper-pigmentation due to the nature of melanin production. The removal of this extra melanin in the skin is quick and extremely effective at Erie Laser Professionals. The same laser technology that removes tattoo ink so effectively enables us to remove age spots, and more, in just one treatment; occasionally two. Laser treatment of pigmented lesions takes just a few minutes, possibly even seconds for smaller pigment spots.
The Erie Laser Professionals technician will examine the unwanted lesion and confirm that permission has been granted by a physician for treatment. Physician approval is an important step before consultation to ensure the lesion is benign. Most age spots and sun spots are harmless and can be treated without concern.
Spider Vein Treatment
We offer free consultations for the treatment of spider veins. Unlike other vascular lesions, spider veins often occur on the legs, ankles, and feet. The vessels will be assessed during the consultation and treatment will be discussed.
Vascular lesion Treatment
Vascular lesions look like a cluster of blood vessels and are commonly found on the nose, ears, and legs. The lesions can present themselves as port wine stains, hemangioma, spider veins, or telangiectasia and occur naturally with age or activity. Their removal is quick and popular.
Light energy from the laser is directed at the vascularity. The capillaries absorb the energy, which causes the vessels to collapse, killing the vein. Not all veins are acceptable for treatment (ideally 1mm wide or less) so it is important to check with a physician to ensure that vascular laser treatment is an appropriate option for you.
Treatment times depend on the size of the lesion. The average length of treatment ranges from just a few seconds to a few minutes. Some bruising and swelling may occur in the area, but side effects will diminish in the following hours and reveal clear skin, free of vascular blemishes. Just one laser treatment reduces the appearance of smaller vascular issues. Larger lesions may take several treatments for full removal.

Yes! Laser tattoo removal at Erie Laser Professionals is very safe and extremely effective. In fact, tattoo removal at ELP will yield far better results than any other non-laser option for removing tattoos. Laser tattoo removal requires no downtime and all staff Erie Laser Professionals are certified laser technicians.
Individual treatments are fast. Anywhere from a few seconds to 15 minutes. A true lunch break procedure! In fact, the Trinity laser at Erie Laser Professionals features the fastest Nd:YAG and Ruby components to ensure that even the most intricate of tattoos can be treated in the shortest amount of time possible.
However, multiple treatments are needed for complete removal of almost all tattoos. Each treatment penetrates a little deeper, pulverizing more ink and leaving the tattoo progressively lighter. Many factors determine just how many are needed, but the average number for removal of professionally applied ink ranges from 5 to 12 treatments. The variables include: 1) Tattoo size 2) Ink color 3) Location on the body 4) Age of the tattoo 5) Immune health/activity
6) Skin type. Also, each treatment must be spaced a minimum of 4 to 8 weeks apart to allow the immune system time to sweep away ink particles.
Cost will vary because no two tattoos---like no two people---are alike. Typical costs can range between $250 and $950. Erie Laser Professionals offers a free consultation for every tattoo, which includes an assessment, pricing, and discussion of the treatment process. There is a $75 minimum charge per treatment, once the procedure has begun. We accept all major credit cards.
Side effects are generally minimal. Minor swelling and redness in the treatment area immediately following treatment is common. This is perfectly normal. If your skin is particularly sensitive there may be some blistering and subsequent scabbing, which is also normal. Each of these side effects can be minimized with proper aftercare. Aftercare instructions are given below and are very similar to the aftercare instructions given after a tattoo is applied.
1) Keep the area clean and covered for 3 days following treatment. Change the bandages twice daily and after exercise or excessive sweating. Apply healing ointment to protect and encourage rapid healing.
2) Showering is perfectly fine, but do not scrub the treated area.
3) Do not submerge the area in a pool, hot tub, lake, or ocean until the wound is completely healed (3-4 days) to minimize risk of infection.
4) If a blister arises keep the area bandaged for at least 24 hours, especially if the blister has popped, to prevent infection.
5) Do not pick scabs! Picking scabs can cause scarring which inhibit the effectiveness of further laser treatment.
6) Wear sunscreen for 2-3 months following treatment.
