About Your Tattoo Removal Procedure

Tattoo-Removal-before-and-afterThe laser emits light in very short flashes of light called pulses.  The impact of the energy from the powerful pulse of light is similar to the snap of a thin rubber band or specks of hot bacon grease on the skin.  After the treatment the area will feel similar to slight sunburn.  Typically, within a day or so, any discomfort disappears.  The area may remain reddened for two to four weeks.  After the redness clears the skin is returned to its natural smooth colouring and texture.

How Many Treatment Sessions will It Take To Remove The Tattoo 

On average, professional tattoos require at least 6-10 treatments, while amateur tattoos require 3-6 treatments, all spaced approximately 6-8 weeks apart.  The number of treatments depends on the amount and type of ink used and the depth of the ink in the skin.

Certain colours work better than others

Dark (blue/black) inks and red inks fade the best.  Oranges and purples usually respond well.  Green, yellow & white inks are the  most difficult to remove, although additional treatments can produce significant fading.

Frequently Asked Question on Tattoo Removal

Will The Tattoo Completely Disappear ?

Greater than 95% of fading of the tattoo may be accomplished.  However, it is very important to know that over 100 tattoo inks are in use worldwide today, none of which are regulated by the FDA.  Not knowing which tattoo ink, how deep or how much was used makes it impossible for the physician to predict the degree of removal on any given tattoo.

What Type of Post Treatment Care is Necessary ?

Usually there will be pinpoint bleeding associated with the treatment.  An antibacterial ointment and a dressing will be applied to the area.  The treated area should be kept clean.

Why Doesn’t The Laser Removal My Normal Skin Pigmentation ?

The laser light was designed for its properties that selectively target dark concentrations of melanin.  If after the abnormal concentration of melanin was removed and treatment continued on normal skin, some whitening could occur.  However your body’s natural regenerative system would replace the normal melanin after a period of time returning the melanin to its natural state.
