Laser Tattoo Removal

Decorative and traumatic

We have 3 different lasers (including the latest Pico) with 4 different wavelengths for the removal of most tattoo colors. Multiple treatments are required, but scarring is unusual. Amateur tattoos respond the best. Our lasers are also helpful in removing the tattoos used for radiation markers in cancer treatments (please see below for more information), and for removing traumatic tattoos for accidents (“road rash tattoos”) Treatment discomfort can be controlled by using a topical anaesthetic such as EMLA, available at our clinic.

Consultation for tattoo removal is $125 and is applied to your first treatment, which can possibly done at the same visit. Treatments do not respond as well if you have a sun tan. Several treatments may be required depending on your desired results. Please call 604-731-5512 to book your appointment.


We are excited to announce joining the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS) “New Beginnings” program in offering complimentary radiation mark removal.
