DOES LASER TATTOO REMOVAL HURT?
There is some discomfort involved in laser tattoo removal treatment, though the level of discomfort varies depending on the area of the body being treated and the skin sensitivity of the individual patient. The sensation is commonly compared to the feeling of pops of hot bacon grease hitting your skin or being snapped by a rubber band.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
The exact number of laser treatments needed varies depending on the size, age, depth, and complexity of the tattoo. Homemade or amateur tattoos respond more quickly to treatment than professional tattoos. Fox example, amateur tattoos can often be removed in as few as 1 or 2 treatments, while professional tattoos may take 6 – 10 or more treatments to achieve maximum results.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER TREATMENT?
Laser removal is usually performed in intervals spaced at least 4-6 weeks apart to allow the area to heal between treatments. Immediately following treatment, the laser treated skin will look white. This is soon replaced by redness and then scabbing. It is important to keep the treated area moist and protected from the sun as it heals.
