FAQs laser tattoo removal
Laser tattoo removal works by emitting short pulses of laser light into the tattoo. With laser technology, the light is absorbed by the ink particles in the skin, making those ink particles shatter into tiny fragments.
The body has the ability to flush out those tiny particles, permanently removing your tattoo forever.
Most people say that laser tattoo removal feels like a rubber band snapping against the skin. Others say it feels like splashing bacon grease on the skin. In other words, it’s not that bad.
If you could withstand the pain of getting a tattoo, you should have no problem bearing the minor discomfort of tattoo removal. Most people agree that laser tattoo removal hurts less than they expected.
It is common for laser clinics to use cold air, numbing creams, or lidocaine to prep the skin prior to the laser.
At LaserAll, the first step in the process is numbing the skin with the Zimmer Cryo Cooling System. This method greatly minimizes the discomfort, making it tolerable for most clients. The first treatment, when you don’t know what to expect, is always the worst.
Treatment sessions vary in length, depending on the size of the tattoo. For example, a small tattoo only takes a few seconds per treatment session. Even large tattoos that took hours to apply, can be treated in just a few minutes.
It is also common to see hypopigmentation, or temporary lightening, of the skin. Skin color usually returns to normal within about two weeks.
If you don’t follow the proper aftercare instructions, you could see some scarring. If your skin develops burns or blisters, resist the urge to pick or pop them, as this is the easiest way to create a scar.
The better the body’s immune system, the faster you’ll heal and the less likely you are to have any scars.
The cost of laser tattoo removal varies, depending on the size of the tattoo. At LaserAll, small tattoos start at INR1500-INR10000 per treatment session.
Financing options are available, as are discount packages. You can save money by purchasing multiple tattoo removal sessions up front.
Laser tattoo removal can be performed on any tattoo on any part of the body, with the exception of some small areas around the eyes. (You can get eyebrow tattoos removed, however.)
The first step in the process is to have a consultation with a licensed and certified laser technician. If your tattoo is near the eye where it is not safe to apply the laser, your technician will let you know during your initial consultation.
Laser tattoo removal can be done on any tattoo, regardless of how big or small it is. The larger the tattoo, the longer each session will take.
The number of laser treatments you need depends on a couple factors:
- Tattoo size
- Tattoo location
- Ink colors
- Type of tattoo ink used
- Age of the tattoo
- Your skin type
Most tattoos require between four and twelve treatment sessions to completely disappear.
It is important to follow a strict aftercare plan. After treatment you’ll need to avoid sun exposure and minimize your exercise routine for several days. It’s also important to decrease alcohol consumption and drink lots of water.
Lack of water and excess alcohol can cause dehydration, which will slow down the healing process and increase your risk of getting an infection.
You’ll also need to avoid hot tubs, long baths, high water pressure, and shaving the treated area for several days.
It’s common for laser tattoo removal to cause some swelling in the treated area. Exercising increases blood flow, which can cause additional swelling and tenderness.
For small tattoos, avoid exercise for one or two days post-treatment. For larger treatment areas, avoid exercise for four days.
Do not get laser tattoo removal while you are pregnant. There aren’t enough studies for us to know the effects of the laser on an unborn fetus. For this reason, it’s always best to wait until after you have given birth and finished breastfeeding to start the tattoo removal process.
The risk of infection with laser tattoo removal is low, but it’s not worth risking your child’s health.
Laser tattoo removal is the best solution for permanent results. There are some effective methods, such as tattoo removal creams, that you can do at home, but they don’t work for everyone.
