Laser tattoo removal is a cutting-edge therapy that helps to remove and fade unsightly tattoos with minimum side effects and excellent results. It is a safe and effective method of removing unwanted tattoos.
Amateur tattoos – A single color (India ink) such as black, brown, or blue is usually used to create an amateur tattoo. They can be applied without the help of a professional tattoo artist at home with a needle and a bottle of India ink. It’s applied at various depths and sits close to the skin’s top layer.
Professional tattoos – A professional tattoo is frequently multicolored and created with maple ink and a machine. In comparison to amateur tattoos, they employ stronger inks. Colors in professional tattoos are placed evenly to the dermis layer beneath the skin. At a salon or tattoo parlor, these tattoos are created by skilled and professional tattoo artists.
Cosmetic tattoos – often known as permanent make-up, are a type of cosmetic tattoo. It entails the application of pigments to the skin, resulting in delicate, cosmetic-like hues (make-up). Eyebrows, eyeliner, and lip liner, for example, are tattooed into the skin. It is a long-lasting sort of make-up that eliminates the need for daily application of cosmetics.
Traumatic tattoos – also known as natural tattoos, are created as a result of an accident or trauma, such as a stab wound from a pen or pencil, or grazes from a car accident.
What will the experience of laser tattoo removal be like?
During the therapy, most participants experience some discomfort, which they describe as “a warm elastic band hitting your skin.” They will have discomfort immediately following the operation because the treated area will be red, somewhat raised, and the skin will appear frosted, but these adverse effects will fade fast. There may be some small bleeding in the area, but this will go away on its own and no additional problems should arise. For good results, patients need between 4 and 12 therapy sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart to erase an undesirable tattoo.
Post Treatment Care
- To prevent the treatment region from rubbing against clothing, a dressing may be used; this dressing should be removed the night of your treatment.
- Wear loose clothing on the day of your appointment and during the healing process.
- Following laser therapy, a doctor-prescribed ointment must be administered for at least 7 days.
- Sun exposure must be avoided at all times while undergoing treatments, and SPF must be applied to all treatment locations.
- For up to 72 hours after treatment, avoid strenuous physical activity, hot showers, pools, spas.
- After your treatment, ice the region for at least 10 minutes every 30-40 minutes for the rest of the day to prevent the chance of blistering. If a blister develops, do not break the skin; instead, let it heal naturally. Interfering with the healing process can result in scarring.
- To lessen this risk, avoid picking, scratching, or agitating the region, as removing a scab or blister will raise your chances of creating a scar.
