Tattoo Removal Services
Tattoo Removal Services in Portland Oregon have came a long ways in the last ten years. Originally Cascade Tattoo Removal, we led the way by researching the latest technological lasers in great detail. At the end of the day we realized that the Q plus C laser was the clear choice.
The Q plus C is considered The Ferrari of tattoo removal lasers so to speak. It has special wave lengths designed specifically for removing tattoos of all ink colors including permanent makeup. The Q plus C Laser from Quanta was designed in Italy, specifically for tattoo removal. Italy is well known for producing the highest quality products and their specialization of laser designs is incomparable.
Our goal is to remove your tattoo in the fewest treatments possible and bring your skin back to normal as clinically possible. Our practitioners have a lot of experience in tattoo removal and we are driven by our results!
“I am seeing huge progress, and for almost nothing compared to what I paid before. The tech who worked on me was professional, pleasant, and the environment was laid-back.”
The number of treatments often depends on ink density. A lighter skin tone and all black ink are typically good factors for tattoo removal.
Older black ink tattoos can often appear blue. Older tattoos are normally the easiest to remove. This tattoo removal only took 4 laser treatment.
Finger tattoo removal results can often vary on the density of the ink and the amount of circulation you get to your fingers.
Looking for Fast Tattoo Removal?
The PFD patch is now cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for all commonly used lasers for tattoo removal. The Patch, which is placed over tattoos prior to removal with a laser, allows us to treat tattoos more efficiently by enabling rapid multiple laser passes in a single treatment session to achieve faster results in a shorter amount of time.
Here is an all black ink finger tattoo removal recently provided at Cascade. Although not recommended for all tattoos, it is a good option for many of our customers.
What is the Best Tattoo Removal Clinic in Portland?
Our customers at Cascade receive a full free consultation prior to their tattoo removal treatments, after care instructions, ice packs, and removal gel which is very important to bring your skin back to normal as clinically possible.
Tattoo Removal for Blue Inks and Other Colors?
The Q plus C is currently the ONLY device on the market to offer 3 true wavelengths. The 694nm Ruby wavelength treats ALL ink colors. Besides its multiple wave lengths, what really separates this laser from the competition is it’s Square-Spot Opti-Beam profile that is flat topped, and is as homogeneous as possible which lessons healing time and minimizes side effects to bring your skin back to normal as absolutely possible. Whether you need to remove a poorly rendered tattoo, make room for a new one, or perhaps you have one that you’ve simply grown to regret, we can help erase your past, for a brighter future.
*Lidocaine cream, and numbing injections available. Please let us know ahead of time if you would like some help to ease the pain
“I selected to have lidocaine injections for my tattoo removal, so I arrived half an hour before the laser session to get numbed by a wonderful nurse named Amanda. She thoroughly explained what to expect from the numbing agent, how it would work in my body, and to calm my nerves we talked about Outlander (it’s a fantastic show, watch it). Then I had my laser removal session with Kortnie, who was very sweet and patient with me. I was really nervous, because the pain can be intense, and I felt slightly light headed when I walked into the laser room. She gave me apple juice and told me to tell her if I needed any breaks. She worked amazingly quickly and coached me on deep breathing to keep me relaxed. It still hurt, but MUCH less than when I did a session without numbing injections. I have several more sessions to go, but I fully trust the good people at Cascade to help me reach my goals. If you are in need of tattoo removal and want professionalism, kindness, and decent prices, this is the place for you.”

Neck tattoos often have good circulation. This person needs a little more healing time for complete removal.
When removing colored tattoos, we remove all the black ink first before switching over to our special 694 Ruby Wave length that attacks the blues.
Removing the dark colors of a tattoo can often give the new tattoo artist enough clarity for a cover up.
Why is routine laser maintenance and calibration important for your tattoo removal?
Many companies that offer tattoo removal make laser calibration and maintenance a low priority to save money. This results in laser treatments that deliver poor results, require more treatments, and increase the risk of skin damage, hence increasing the overall cost of tattoo removal.
At Cascade, our laser is serviced every 4-6 months. This ensures our laser is well calibrated and firing at %100 to give you the best treatment possible. Before choosing a laser tattoo removal provider, you should ask to see their service records.
Black ink tattoos with a lighter skin tone can produce optimum results
Does Tattoo Removal Cause Scarring?
Sometimes, scarring can be caused by the tattoo artist if the ink was scrubbed into the skin area. After we remove most of the ink we can then use a MicroNeedling process to help break up the scar tissue. This is not always necessary but it is a very helpful treatment as it not only helps with the scarring, but also breaks up ink particles to help with the overall tattoo removal. This is also a great complimentary addition for those customers seeking other skin rejuvenation treatments from our MicroNeedling service.
