Question:

Would having a healthcare card reduce the cost of having laser tattoo removal?
If I am under legal age to have a tattoo, and ask to have it removed, will you have to inform my parents?
Also, is there a cost to come in and have my tattoo looked at to see how much it will cost to be removed and how many treatments I will need?

Answer:

Sorry, but healthcare cards don’t reduce the cost of having laser treatments at our clinic. If you are under 18, you will need parental consent. A consultation is about $75 out of pocket after medicare rebates
