How We Chose the Best Tattoo Removal Services in Phoenix
It’s best to go to an expert or a certified professional when it comes to removing tattoos to avoid infections.
We also took a look at the process and tattoo removal methods practiced by these clinics.
Removing tattoos are not only painful, they can also be expensive. We considered those that offered reasonable and industry-standard rates.
Tattoo removals usually take more than one session. We took into account their customer service performance in terms of responsiveness, patient care, and ease of setting appointments.
1. Phoenix Skin
Services: Dermatology, Cosmetic, Injectables, Laser, Skin Care
Address: 5056 N Central Avenue Phoenix, AZ 85012
Contact Number: (602) 222-9111
- Monday to Thursday 7AM–5PM
- Friday 7AM–12PM
- Saturday to Sunday CLOSED
When it comes to anything dermatology- or cosmetic-related, Phoenix Skin Medical is one of your best bets.
Not only do they pride themselves on having an expert team of board-certified physicians, they also boast of using the latest industry techniques and procedures in their state-of-the-art facility.
When it comes to tattoo removal, they offer patients two options – PicoSure Laser and Revlite Laser. The former is faster and would require less number of sessions; while the latter is much more effective at removing red rink.
Even though the cost of PicoSure Laser is a bit more expensive, it does allow for a shorter time frame between sessions and fewer treatments. In the long run, we think it’s the more cost-effective solution (if you’re initially willing to shell out more).
We’d also like to point out that Phoenix Skin is the one of the few practices in Arizona with the PicoSure Laser option, so we give them major props for that.
Different tattoos would require different removal techniques. Phoenix Skin recommends a tailor-fit combination of both to yield better results.
We also appreciate that they don’t charge customers additional costs for numbing during a removal session. They don’t have hidden charges and office visit minimums, too.
The only downside is that we did hear some reports of scheduling conflicts and sudden appointment cancellations. Apparently, they’re not as easy to reach and some customers need to call multiple times.
Those issues aside, we still think they’re worth paying a visit if you plan on getting your tattoos removed. Just make sure to confirm your appointment at least a day before.
2. Laguna Laser Hair and Tattoo Removal
Services: Laser Hair Removal, Laser Tattoo Removal, MicroDermabrasion, Skin Tightening, Spider Vein Removal
Address: 625 N. Gilbert Rd. Suite 101 Gilbert, AZ 85234
Contact Number: (480) 292-9677
- Monday to Friday 9AM–7PM
- Saturday to Sunday 9AM–4PM
As far as laser experts go, the team at Laguna Laser Hair & Tattoo Removal are more than capable and qualified.
They are certified medical laser technicians who have completed extensive laser training courses approved by the Arizona Regulatory Agency in compliance with Arizona State Law.
They’re also under the clinical supervision of Dr. Dan Quan, M.D., who has been practicing medicine in the valley for over 15 years. We hear that he’s quite hands-on and incredibly friendly to his patients.
As for their treatment design, they use high-intensity laser beams to remove the tattoos. According to them, there’s no downtime, it’s low-risk, and is highly-effective with minimal side effects.
Completely removing a tattoo will vary based on different factors such as size, shape, color, and the individual’s skin type. It follows that the price will vary for everyone, as well.
We appreciate, though, that they have relatively affordable prices for their services. They also offer a military discount which we think is nice.
The clinic itself is small, but it’s newly-renovated and rustic yet modern. Their customers seem to appreciate this because it has a warm and inviting vibe.
It seems that this reflects on their staff, too, as we’ve heard that they’re friendly and very attentive to the patient’s needs and pain levels.
Unfortunately, we also did hear that their system has flaws in scheduling appointments – some get lost, some don’t get booked at all. We really hope they take measures to address this soon.
3. Phoenix Tattoo Removal
Services: Tattoo Removal, Skin Revitalization, Acne Scars, Wrinkle Reduction, 3D Laser Treatment, Leg and Facial Veins, Melasma, Rosacea, Sun-Damaged Skin
Address: 9305 W Thomas RD STE 405, Phoenix, AZ 85037
Contact Number: (602) 802-8800
- Monday to Friday 8AM–5PM
- Saturday to Sunday CLOSED
Phoenix Tattoo Removal is a pretty straightforward facility that offers a good scope of services, but specializes in tattoo removal.
It’s owned by Dr. Andrew Racette who is a board-certified osteopathic dermatologist. What his patients love about him is his kind demeanor and comprehensive treatment approach.
They’re also one of the few facilities in Arizona to use PicoSure Laser. It treats full spectrums of colored inks (including blue and green ones which are typically the most difficult to remove) without permanently damaging the skin.
He’s quite hands-on with the business and we hear that he truly gets to know each patient. This builds a foundation of trust – which customers always appreciate.
His staff receive the same compliment from their cliente. It seems that their team is a friendly bunch who are all very polite and courteous to their customers.
Such is the case for Judi and Angie who are often given commendations for their professionalism and efficiency. Apparently, they listen to every patient’s pain concern and ease the process as much as they can.
It’s also been said that they give accurate estimates on how many sessions will be needed. Pricing is upfront, too, and estimates are helpfully displayed on their website.
They are relatively more expensive compared to other similar facilities, but we still think they’re a solid choice considering the quality of service they provide customers.
4. Delete Tattoo Removal and Medical Salon
Services: Removal and Reinvention, Anti-Aging, Health and Wellness
Address: 6020 North 16th Street, Phoenix AZ 85016
Contact Number: (602) 833-7946
- Monday to Tuesday 9AM–6PM
- Wednesday 11AM–7PM
- Thursday 9AM–7PM
- Friday 9AM–6PM
- Saturday 9AM–3PM
- Sunday CLOSED
Since 2010, Delete Tattoo Removal and Medical Salon has been helping their customers get a clean slate – at least, tattoo-wise.
With over a decade in the business, you can expect a certain level of expertise and efficiency. They have a dedicated team of physicians and trained laser technicians who are all skilled to provide you with the best possible service.
The salon guarantees superior tattoo removal results with their The Delete Method (patent pending), which is a treatment course unique to them.
They believe that when it comes to removing tattoos, the best approach is to treat the skin from the inside out.
They do this by utilizing PicoWay Laser Tattoo Removal treatments and a series of skin restoration therapies in order to treat scars, tissues, hyperpigmentation, and encourage collagen production.
PicoWay is a dual laser that pulsates with higher levels of comfort. It can delete intricate tattoo inks on a variety of skin tones and pigments.
What we like about their salon is they offer fixed price packages based on just tattoo size and design. For those on a tight budget, they also offer several payment plans and financing options.
We think it’s incredibly considerate of them to have these, as tattoos (and deciding to get rid of them) are very personal matters and some customers simply can’t easily afford the treatments.
We’d like to point out, though, that we did hear some of their members need to be better trained when it comes to speaking with customers. Bookings get filled up easily, too, so just make sure to call ahead for the appointment you’d like to schedule.
5. Lighten Up Laser
Services: Laser Tattoo Removal, Laser Hair Reduction, Cosmetic Injectables, Skin Classic Treatments, Non-Laser Skin Care
Address: 3341 N. 7th Ave. Suite 2 Phoenix, AZ 85013
Contact Number: (602) 279-0465

- Tuesday to Wednesday 9AM–7PM

- Friday 10:30AM–6PM
- Saturday 10AM–4PM

Lighten Up Laser is a locally-owned and -operated facility that offers both spa and laser treatments in a relaxed atmosphere.
They have a team of expertly-trained technicians and from what we’ve heard, they’re great at what they do. It seems that customers love them, too, for being so welcoming and friendly to anyone walking into their office.
The owner, Hettie Rich, specializes in laser technology and microneedling. Apparently, she’s often present and very professional with her clients.
When it comes to tattoo removal, their laser technicians use Quanta Q-Plus C, which removes tattoos quicker than other Q-switched lasers. It can treat most colors of the tattoo spectrum in a safe and effective manner.
They firmly advertise themseelves as a medical spa, not a doctor’s clinic. They do, however, work closely with their medical director to make sure that their clients’ are getting the best care possible.
We think it’s great how they go the extra mile for their customers. It gives a great sense of ease to know that you’re in good hands.
What’s more helpful is their affordable rates that are all readily-available on their website. They’re pretty affordable, too, compared to other similar companies.
We did hear some reports that appointments get canceled suddenly, some just 3 hours prior. They may have their reasons, but we think it’s polite to give notice at least two days before.
6. Inkredible Permanent Makeup
Services: Lip Blushing, Eyelash Enhancement, Permanent Eyeliner, Saline Tattoo Removal, Scar Camouflage, Areola
Address: 7325 N 16th st suite 160 Phoenix AZ 85020

Inkredible Permanent Makeup is ran by Kelly, who was trained at Eii in Paramedical Deluxe Permanent Makeup.
Their services include Lip Blushing, Eyelash Enhancement, Permanent Eyeliner, Saline Tattoo Removal, Scar Camouflage, and Areola Restoration.
We like that their saline tattoo removal incurs minimal scarring, and minimal risk of infection.
It also works naturally and just leaves a mild sting that disappears very quickly.
Their tattoo removal is also effective on every type of skin stains and colours.
What we like about this place is that they take the time to explain the procedure and the entire process so you’re well informed.
We think they’re true experts at what they do and we highly recommend.
