What exactly is CareCredit?
CareCredit is a health, wellness, and personal care credit card. CareCredit is more like a credit card than a standard loan because you can use and repay and reuse the balance over and over again.
How is CareCredit different from a regular credit card?
With a CareCredit card, you can use it to pay for out-of-pocket expenses not covered by medical insurance. Additionally, special financing options are available that you may not be able to get with other cards.
Who is a good candidate for CareCredit?
Anyone looking for a financing option to help pay for laser tattoo removal treatments (and additional health, wellness, and personal care needs, if desired).
Why should I consider an option like CareCredit?
CareCredit provides a convenient way to pay for laser tattoo removal treatments as well as a way to pay for deductibles, unexpected expenses, copays and coinsurance, as well as costs not covered by insurance. One of the biggest perks is that it helps you forward with treatments the same day as applying – there’s not waiting for a card to come in the mail! CareCredit also provides a way to fit payments into your monthly budget.
I’m interested in CareCredit; when should I apply?
You can apply whenever you are ready to open a line of credit. That may be before you come into your clinic or once you’ve had a laser tattoo removal consultation and decide you’re ready to get started. The application process is quick and easy, so it’s convenient to apply whenever you feel ready.

I’m done with my laser tattoo removal treatments. What happens to my CareCredit account now?
Like any other credit card, as long as you are in good standing and you have available credit, you can use your CareCredit healthcare credit card anywhere the card is accepted. It is important to use your card at least once a year, however, in order to keep your account active.
What kinds of promotions are available?
Promotions are added when our clinic staff processes your transaction. We offer the following promotions to any client using CareCredit:
– 6 months deferred interest (aka same-as-cash). You will not pay any interest if you repay your amount in full within 6 months.
– 12 months deferred interest (aka same-as-cash). You will not pay any interest if you repay your amount in full within 12 months.
– Promotional interest rates are offered over 24, 36, 48, or 60 months. The longer the term you choose, the lower the monthly payment. You can always repay it sooner without any penalty.
