am i a candidate for laser tattoo removal?
There are several factors that improve the success of your tattoo removal. Great candidates for laser tattoo removal:
- Have strong immune systems. A strong immune system improves the body’s ability to break down and eliminate the ink properties.
- Have a healthy lifestyle and abstain from smoking.
- Have a deep contrast between the ink color and the pigment of the skin. The greater the contrast, the greater the result.
- Have older tattoos. The older a tattoo is, the better it will respond to treatment.
how does laser tattoo removal work?
After our physicians determine that your skin is ideal for laser tattoo removal, they will prepare the treatment area by cleaning the skin and applying a numbing cream. Next, a skilled team member will pass the specialized handpiece over your skin's surface as it emits energy and pulsing laser light. The time it takes to complete the procedure varies and depends on the size of the treatment area. At times, the tattoo may require multiple sessions before obvious results are seen. During your consultation, we will provide details about follow-up sessions and when to schedule them.
how long is recovery after laser tattoo removal?
After each session, we will apply an ointment and bandages to the skin, which will help protect the area. You may experience swelling, redness, and sensitivity. It can also feel like a sunburn, and you may have minor scabbing. To speed up the recovery process, we will provide detailed aftercare instructions. It's very important to follow these directions to ensure your skin heals. After the area has healed and if needed, we will schedule another session. We do not recommend scheduling sessions sooner than 4 – 7 weeks apart.
