What to Expect - Laser Tattoo Removal Treatment

With the modern technology available, laser tattoo removal is much more effective and has little to no risk of scarring.

The more traditional methods of tattoo removal including excision, dermabrasion or salabrasion, laser tattoo removal has proven more effective because of its capability in treating just the pigment within the tattoo.

Laser tattoo removal can target the specific area without affecting adjoining areas, and it can effectively remove blue and black tattoos, with lighter inks requiring additional treatments.

You should consult with your physician prior to the treatment for professional advice.

After obtaining your physician’s recommendation, you can expect the following while you undergo a Laser Tattoo Removal procedure.

You will be given protection for your eyes to wear during the procedure.

Your skin will be tested to determine the best level for treatment. You may feel a snapping sensation as the pulses meet your skin.

Smaller tattoos will generally need fewer laser pulses, while the larger sized tattoos require more. Each treatment should produce lighter tattoo results. Most people undergoing the treatments do not require any type of anesthesia. However, this can be influenced by location of the tattoo and individual pain threshold.

Ice packs will be applied to the area for relief. Usually an antibiotic cream or ointment will be applied. In most cases, a bandage will be applied to protect the area.

Be sure to always use sunblock on the area after it heals.
