Laser Tattoo Removal FAQ
How does laser tattoo removal work?
A beam of laser light shatters particles of ink pigment into small pieces. Over a period of six weeks after treatment, the white blood cells carry away these particles. The treatment does not cut or burn. The effect you get after each treatment is that more and more of the tattoo fades away until finally it is gone completely.
Does laser tattoo removal scar?
The final results are excellent as can be seen in the photographs. However, the skin may not be instantly perfect because it has been traumatized by the treatment. A faint shadow may result until the melanin in the skin returns to normal.
Does laser tattoo removal hurt?
Most patients say it is like having a tattoo put on. Others say it is similar to having a rubber band snapped at the skin. Any discomfort stops as soon as the laser does.
How long does each laser tattoo removal treatment take?
It depends upon the size and number of tattoos, but an average tattoo will take around 10 minutes to treat at each session.
How many treatments does it take to remove the tattoo?
It depends on each tattoo and each individual. Amateur tattoos take an average of four treatments and professional tattoos take about eight, leaving six weeks in between each treatment to allow time for the white blood cells to dispose of the broken down particles.
What are the alternatives to laser tattoo removal?
Skin Grafting – expensive, painful, donor area required, obvious scars.
