A tattoo can be an important form of self-expression, but sometimes these lasting artworks are no longer desired. You may have changed your mind about one or more of your tattoos, and that’s OK. While tattoo removal was once very painful and prohibitively expensive for many people, recent advancements in laser tattoo removal have drastically improved this experience.
For nearly 20 years, we at Essentially Bare Laser MedSpa have invested much of our time and resources in adopting cutting-edge laser tattoo removal technologies. The right equipment makes a difference with this service, and you can rest assured knowing that we have approved medical-grade lasers that are safe for all skin tones. You can also feel more confident about removing unwanted tattoos because our capable and compassionate staff is here to answer any questions you may have.

Spectra Q-Switched Laser Tattoo Removal
The Spectra Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser is a high-intensity, medical-grade laser system developed by Lutronic. It is designed to deliver specific wavelengths of light in short, powerful pulses. This laser system is often used in various dermatological treatments due to its versatility and effectiveness.
The Spectra Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser system can be adjusted for different wavelengths, allowing it to be used on a wide range of skin types and for various procedures.
One of its key applications is tattoo removal because it can achieve the following outcomes:
- Excellent for darker skin tones
- Precise and accurate removal
- Faster treatment times
- Remove any ink color
- Minimal risk of burning or scarring
- Can correct previous ineffective tattoo removal attempts
The laser emits high-intensity pulses of light that target the ink particles in tattooed skin, breaking them down into smaller fragments, which are then naturally eliminated by the body. This device can also be useful for treating conditions like acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Is Tattoo Removal Painful?
The Spectra laser we use minimizes the pain involved in tattoo removal. You may experience some discomfort similar to a rubber band snapping against your skin, but the laser is non-ablative—this means the surrounding skin isn’t burned during the removal process. This results in much less pain than previous methods.
You may experience puffy skin along the lines and fill of the tattoo site, but this subsides within a few hours. Additionally, there is no bleeding or scabbing involved with this process.
How Long Does It Take to Remove a Tattoo?
The time it takes to remove your tattoo will depend on its size, ink density, and coloring. While traditional tattoo removal lasers can require up to 20 treatments, the Spectra laser may take as few as half of the number of treatments when compared to traditional lasers.
If you received partial results from somewhere else, we’re confident that our laser tattoo removal in Boston can help you finish your treatment.
How Much Does It Cost to Remove a Tattoo?
On average, the Spectra laser makes it possible to remove a small, multi-ink tattoo for half as much as it would cost to remove the same tattoo with other treatments.
The cost of your tattoo removal service at Essentially Bare Laser MedSpa will depend on the size of your tattoo. We charge $59 per square inch, but we have packages available (based on the number of treatments you may require) with discounted pricing.
Additional costs may apply due to other variables, such as your tattoo’s ink color and density. You may also need additional treatments beyond any included with a package.

Welcoming & Inclusive
Locally-Owned & Operated
Pricing is determined during your free consultation by measuring the size of your tattoo. We do not believe in preselling big contracts, and you can pay as you go. Your clinician may offer you a minimal package based on the number of treatments expected to eliminate your tattoo. As there are variables involved (skin tone, ink color and density, ink age, etc.), you may require additional sessions.
