How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?
Prior to the procedure, the treatment area will be thoroughly cleansed. A numbing agent will be applied to the treatment area to reduce sensation. As the treatment begins, the laser focuses a heated light on the tattooed area. Pigment particles will begin to break apart as the laser is passed back and forth over the tattoo. These tiny particles in the skin are then cleansed as they pass through the body’s lymphatic system. Since the laser targets the tattoo and the skin’s natural pigment, no damage to the skin is done. Depending on the tattoo and the patient’s skin type, it may take more than one treatment to erase the ink. Contact us today and schedule a consultation to learn more about tattoo removal.
How Many Treatments Would I Need For Tattoo Removal?
Since every patient has a different skin type, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Additionally, the size and colors of the tattoo’s will also determine how many treatments may be needed to see the end result. Some patients may see results right away, while it may take others a few treatments. For those who may need more than a single treatment, it is suggested to wait 4-6 weeks in between treatments.
How Long Will the Process Take?
The speed of tattoo removal will differ with each patient and their tattoo. This is due to certain factors playing a major role. For example, a patient who is young, physically fit and has a strong immune system may see results quicker as opposed to a patient experiencing health problems. Aside from the number of treatments required, other factors which may impact the process time include skin type, tattoo layering (if the tattoo is a cover up), location on the body, the ink colors utilized as well as the amount of ink, and lastly pre-existing scars.
Does Tattoo Laser Removal leave a Scar?
At Visage, we utilize proper protocols as well as a state of the art laser machine for safe and effective tattoo removal. Although scaring is possible, it is rare and highly unlikely. Patients are urged to follow proper aftercare instructions until the treated area has healed. Post-treatment it is not uncommon to develop blisters and scabs, however we recommend for our patient not to pick the scabs as these are vital in the healing process. Picking the scabs and not caring properly for the blisters may cause scarring to occur.
