Laser Tattoo Removal is a procedure that utilizes high-powered lasers that penetrate deep into the skin and are able to permanently demolish the ink particles within the cells that give the color to the tattoo. There are different types of lasers that may be used to remove tattoos, depending on the color of ink of the tattoo. The procedure for the tattoo removal will depend on the characteristics of the tattoo and the individual person.

Information

Lasers remove tattoos by breaking up the pigment colors with a high-intensity light beam. Black tattoo pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths, making it the easiest color to treat. Other colors can only be treated by selected lasers based upon the pigment color.

The number of treatments you will need will depend on the age, size, and color(s) of your tattoo. The color of your skin, as well as how deep the tattoo pigment goes, will also affect the removal technique.

Smaller tattoos will require fewer pulses while larger ones will need more to remove them. In either case, to completely get rid of a tattoo, it will take several treatments. After each visit, your tattoo should become progressively lighter.

 

It’s crucial to pay close attention to the area, especially in the days immediately following treatment.

For the first three days, cover the area with a layer of antibiotic healing ointment. Keep it bandaged with sterilized gauze. Don’t apply any other creams or makeup to the treated area within the first few days.

You can remove the bandage after three days, but keep the area as clean and dry as possible. You may also apply Vaseline, Aquaphor, or hydrocortisone cream to moisturize the area as it heals.

Vitamin E ointment is helpful too, as it helps to restore damaged skin cells.

And, you should wear sunblock (SPF 25+) any time you go outside. Sun exposure is one of the worst things for the skin after Laser Tattoo Removal.

Frequently Asked Questions

Laser treatment is often safer than many other tattoo removal methods, such as excision, dermabrasion, or salabrasion because laser treatment selectively treats the pigment in the tattoo. And there are very few side effects.

Yes, this treatment is very safe for all skin types, including sensitive skin. However, you should consider these factors in your decision:

  • Your tattoo removal site is at risk for infection. And there is a slight chance that you will have a permanent scar.
  • It’s unlikely that your tattoo will be completely removed. In many cases, certain colors may be more effectively removed than others. Blue and black tattoos, for example, respond well to laser treatment.
  • You may end up with hypopigmentation, which means the skin that is treated is paler than the skin surrounding it. You could also have hyperpigmentation, which leaves the affected skin darker than the rest of your skin.
    Cosmetic tattoos like lip liner, eyeliner, and eyebrows may actually get darker after treatment. They do tend to fade over time.

Patients may experience slight discomfort, however, the overall treatment is very tolerable. Most patients don’t need anesthesia. Depending on the location of your tattoo, you may want to apply a topical anesthesia cream beforehand.

Every patient has a different pain threshold. If you’re able to withstand having a tattoo applied, you can definitely tolerate having one removed.
