How does tattoo removal work?

After a local anesthetic is administered, powerful controlled laser pulses are sent to the skin, heating up the tattoo to break up the ink. The pigment in the tattoo is highly attracted to the laser energy, causing the ink to release from the skin and disperse. Removing a tattoo takes multiple sessions, and will significantly lighten them so they are unnoticeable, however in some cases, can be completely removed. This depends on the ink color and darkness.

Large with tattoos with multiple colors are the most difficult to remove, and may require more sessions. This treatment works best on black and dark ink colors. The age of the tattoo also plays a factor, as the older the tattoo is, the easier it is to remove. 

How many sessions will I need?

Typically 7-10 sessions are needed. These treatments ideally should be placed 6-8 weeks apart for optimal results.

Preparation for tattoo removal

You will want to arrive to the office with fresh skin, free of any topical products such as moisturizer, sunscreen, or oils. If you have hair in the area, it is recommended that you shave prior to your appointment.

As you undergo this process, it is important to avoid sun exposure on the tattoo areas for at least 4 weeks prior, and any self-tanning products must be avoided 2 weeks prior.

Recovery and Aftercare

Your skin will blister and scab in the treated areas. It is important to refrain from picking at your skin to avoid any chance of scarring, and so the healing process isn’t disrupted. An anti-bacterial ointment will be given to you to apply after treatment to minimize any chance of infection.

For a few days, you will need to keep wound dressing on the treated areas, and are only to remove this to shower, only using mild soap to avoid irritation. 

It is important to follow proper aftercare for optimal results, and your treatment provider will discuss this with you with further instruction.
