Its precision and ability to handle a spectrum of colours make it suitable for removing tattoos from different regions of the body with optimal results.
How Laser Tattoo Removal Works
Medical laser tattoo removal uses concentrated light pulses to break down tattoo ink particles in the skin. Lasers selectively target and shatter pigments, resulting in smaller particles that can be passed through the body’s immune system. Over multiple sessions, the tattoo then gradually fades or completely disappears from the skin.
Advanced lasers, like PicoSure, utilize ultra-short pulses for enhanced efficacy and reduced side effects. The process is a gradual, non-invasive method that allows individuals to eliminate unwanted tattoos while minimizing harm to the surrounding skin.
Tattoo removal sessions typically last between 10 and 30 minutes, depending on the size and complexity of the tattoo. According to patients, the treatment feels similar to tattooing. Some patients may feel discomfort during the treatment, however, your laser technician will prepare you ahead of time to ensure your experience is as comfortable as possible.
In a medical spa setting, laser tattoo removal is not only efficient but also more comfortable, allowing clients to embark on their ink-free journey with confidence and convenience.
Benefits of Laser Tattoo Removal: Results You Can Expect
The number of treatments a patient needs to remove a tattoo depends on skin tone, surrounding skin, ink characteristics, tattoo colours, size of the tattoo, location on the body, and lifestyle habits. Benefits patients can expect with laser tattoo removal include:
Tattoo removal results take time; patients can expect to see gradual improvements with every treatment session.
Tattoo removal methods accommodate various ink colours and types, ensuring effectiveness across a broad spectrum of tattoo compositions for comprehensive removal.
Our laser tattoo removal service is customized to the patient’s tattoo size, location, and characteristics for personalized results.
Laser tattoo removal is non-surgical, using lasers to break down ink particles without the need for incisions, preserving surrounding skin integrity.
With non-invasive techniques, downtime is minimal. Patients can often resume their daily activities shortly after treatment, making it a convenient option for those with busy lifestyles.
Safe and FDA-Approved
Medical laser tattoo removal is an FDA-approved procedure that adheres to stringent safety standards, ensuring that the procedures are conducted with minimal risks and proven efficacy.
Correction or Cover-Up
Patients may opt for laser tattoo removals to lighten the inked area, making it easier to correct or cover up with a new design.
Laser Tattoo Removal Aftercare
The tattoo removal process doesn’t stop after the actual treatment. Tattoo removal treatments need proper aftercare to speed up ink elimination and achieve the best results. A patient should expect the treatment area to take six to eight weeks to heal completely, and extra care should be taken to prevent infection during this time.
At Harmony Med Spa, laser tattoo removal aftercare includes the following:
- Avoid exercise for up to 48 hours after your laser tattoo removal treatment as the surrounding skin will be tender and at risk of infection.
- Avoid applying excessive heat to the tattoo. While it is okay to shower two hours after a laser tattoo removal session, remember to avoid high-pressure hot showers or soaking in a bath for at least 24 to 48 hours.
- Keep the tattoo removal area clean and dry during the healing process. Use a mild soap and do not pat dry or rub the tattoo.
- Avoid sun exposure after laser tattoo removal. If you need to be outside, apply quality sunscreen and cover the affected area.
- Don’t pick at the blisters. Getting blisters is common after a laser tattoo removal procedure; they are a sign your immune system is healing the affected area and that the tattoo pigment removal has started. Let your body break the blisters naturally and apply an antibiotic ointment if they burst.
- If the tattoo removal procedure causes pain in the area, take Paracetamol for pain relief. Do not take Aspirin as it causes bruising and bleeding.
- At all costs, avoid picking any scabs or scratching the tattoos. This will cause scarring and infections.
- Avoid shaving until the tattoo removal area is completely healed.
- If the tattoo removal area is feeling like it is “sunburned” apply a cold compress.
Potential Side Effects
Laser tattoo removal, while generally safe, may cause temporary side effects. These can include:
