What Is the Laser Tattoo Removal Procedure?
Laser tattoo removal involves short pulses of laser energy that are directed at the skin’s surface. Once the pigments of the tattoo are broken down by the heat energy, your body will naturally remove them. This typically takes five to ten treatments, depending upon the size of the tattoo, the color of the ink, and the age of the tattoo.
What Type of Post-Operative Laser Tattoo Removal Care Can I Expect?
Some of the most common side effects of laser tattoo removal include redness and swelling of the treatment area. You may also risk having some scarring, although this is rare as long as you follow the proper after-care instructions.
Following your procedure, your surgeon will place ointment and bandages on the treatment area. The recovery time will vary depending upon your tattoo. For best results, avoid direct sunlight. And to see how each procedure differs, you can take a look at some tattoo removal before and after pictures.
