Other things you should know about laser tattoo removal before scheduling a consultation and first treatment.
Does laser tattoo removal hurt? What does it feel like?
The process of using a laser to remove a tattoo is uncomfortable, but tolerable. Some patients have described the pain to be a lot like when grease splatters on your skin. To alleviate discomfort, a numbing cream is applied prior to treatment.
How does laser tattoo removal work?
Modern tattoo removal lasers effectively and safely remove ink from your skin by breaking down the pigment in the dye. Between sessions while your skin heals, your body will flush out the ink that was broken down by the laser.
Factors affecting results and number of treatments include:
How deeply the tattoo artist’s needles penetrated your skin
Your health (and the health of your skin)
Whether or not you’ve had raised scars
You’ll get a clearer idea of your treatment timeline and what to expect throughout the process during your initial consultation.
How do you know if laser tattoo removal is right for you?
