Tattoo Removal Before & After Photos

Why choose Bare Tattoo Removal of Chicago?

Top Technology


We use the most advanced laser technologies available – the Quanta Q Plus C and the CynoSure RevLite. These lasers are top-of the line Q-Switched lasers specifically designed to target all tattoo colors on all skin types in just a minute or so with minimal discomfort.

Unmatched Guarantees


We guarantee our work. If you pay in advance for all the sessions we estimate it will take to remove your tattoo, we’ll refund any unnecessary treatments or provide 6 months of additional treatments for free!

Experienced Professionals


Tattoo removal is what we do, all day, every day. It’s our specialty, not a side job. All treatments are done by certified laser technicians under the supervision of Dr. Tolitano. Experience matters.


Minimal Pain


Tattoo removal feels a lot like a rubber band repeatedly snapping. While not a great feeling, it’s very tolerable. Bare also utilizes an advanced cooling device to numb the skin before, during, and after treatment.

How Tattoo Removal Works

Our advanced laser is specifically designed to target tattoo ink, causing the pigment to shatter into small pieces that gradually fade over a series of treatments. Treatments are spaced 4-6 weeks apart. The number of treatments you’ll need depends on a variety of factors, including location, density, colors and skin type. Typically our estimates range from as few as 3 to 10 or more.

Most treatments last just a minute or so and feel like a rubber band repeatedly snapping on the skin. While not a great feeling, it’s very tolerable. We also utilize the Zimmer Chiller that numbs but the skin before, during, and after treatment to minimize any discomfort.

That’s just a quick overview. You can find out more by reading our blog or by contacting us directly. Our team is here to answer any questions and will provide a full overview during a free consultation.
