What is laser tattoo removal?
Laser tattoo removal works by firing laser light into the tattoo which breaks the ink into tiny pieces. These little pieces are easy for the body to absorb. It will allow the ink to be removed from the body itself. Laser tattoo removal avoids damaging the skin while removing the tattoo, unlike other tattoo removal methods.
The benefits of laser tattoo removal include:
- Less painful treatments
- Less downtime, ( swelling, blistering and scabbing)
- Faster recovery time after treatment
- Less damage to the skin
- Effective on many colors of the tattoo
Is the process painful?
The 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 on the skin.
The big majority of patients do not require anesthesia, but for patients' comfort, a special numbing cream can be apply one hour before procedure.
How many treatment sessions will it take to remove the tattoo?
Professional tattoos may require between 1 to 10 treatments, with the average being 5-10 treatments.
Homemade tattoos usually may require 1-4 treatments. All treatments are spaced about 1-2 months apart or longer. The number of treatments depends on the amount, type of ink used, and the depth of the ink in the skin, location of tattoo, along with individual health considerations.
Do all colors of ink disappear equally as well?
No, dark (blue/black) inks and red inks fade the best. Orange, yellow, and purple hues usually respond well. Green, light teal/sky blue inks are the most difficult to remove, although additional treatments may produce effective results or significant fading.
What type of post-treatment care is necessary?
A healing ointment and a dressing will be applied to the area.
The treated area should be kept clean with continued application of ointment antibiotic. A shower can be taken the next day, although the treated area should not be scrubbed.
Will the tattoo completely disappear?
In many cases, yes the tattoo will completely disappear.
Greater than 95% fading of the tattoo may be accomplished. However, it is very important to know that over 100 types of tattoo inks are in use worldwide today. Not knowing which tattoo ink, how deep or how much was used, makes it impossible for the dermatologist to predict the degree of removal on the any given tattoo.
