Can I send you my photos of my awful home made tatts, that I would like removed, so you you can give me, a costs of how mzch each 6/8 week sessions going to cost, with discount from Medicare if any.
I await your reply to my answers thank you….
Homemade tattoos can certainly be removed with the use of lasers such as our Medlite NdYAG 1064nm. This laser has a photo-mechanical effect on tattoo inks or pigments, and literally shatters these into
small particles. The remnants are then removed by the body’s immune
system. Tattoo removal is performed up to 3 months apart for maximum time for the ink to disperse and the area to heal. Tattoo removal starts at $250 per session (including GST) and the
cost will depend on the time taken and size of the area being treated, however it is not covered by Medicare.
Medicare will only cover injury or illness, and only such cosmetic treatments as birthmarks or scarring from previous injury.
