There are a number of factors that could increase the success of your laser tattoo removal. The best candidates for this procedure:
- Have older and potentially faded tattoos
- Have strong immune systems, which help to eliminate the ink properties following treatment
- Have strong contrasts between the ink color and the pigment of the skin
- Are in good overall health
As soon as a member of our team determines that your skin is ideal for laser tattoo removal, the treatment area will be prepped with a careful cleansing and an application of a topical anesthetic. Next, we will pass the Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser over the surface of the skin as it emits energy and pulsing laser light. The time it takes to complete the procedure varies and depends on the size of the tattoo. Sometimes, the tattoo may require multiple treatments before obvious results can be seen. This will all be discussed with you during your consultation.
What to Expect
After each treatment, you may experience redness, sensitivity, and mild swelling. You might also feel a sunburn sensation followed by a slight scabbing during the healing process. It is important to adhere to aftercare instructions precisely to speed up the recovery process. Once the site has healed, you can schedule your next treatment session. We will discuss how frequently to schedule your sessions to allow for ample healing between them.
