How are tattoos removed?

The traditional tattoo removal method involves the use of lasers, which break up tattoo ink and encourage the body to gradually absorb it. Intense pulse light therapy (IPL) is also effective for tattoo removal in some individuals – especially those with fair skin and dark ink. Both laser and IPL tattoo removal are considered safe and low risk when performed by a qualified skin care professional.

How long will it take to have my tattoo removed?

Removing a tattoo is a multi-step process that usually requires several in-office treatments. It is normal to need 4 to 6 tattoo removal sessions, each of which may take between a few minutes to an hour depending on tattoo size, color, and location.

Laser tattoo removal is a popular method for removing unwanted tattoos. It involves using high-intensity laser beams to target and break down the tattoo ink particles in the skin. The laser emits pulses of light that are absorbed by the tattoo ink, causing it to fragment into smaller particles.

The body’s immune system then gradually eliminates these smaller ink particles over time. Multiple laser treatment sessions are typically required to achieve the desired results, as tattoos vary in size, color, and depth.

During the laser tattoo removal process, the laser technician will adjust the laser settings based on factors such as the tattoo’s color and the patient’s skin type. The procedure can cause some discomfort, often described as a sensation similar to the snapping of a rubber band against the skin. However, numbing creams or local anesthesia can be used to minimize any discomfort.

After each laser session, the treated area may appear red, swollen, or blistered. It is important to follow proper aftercare instructions provided by the laser technician to promote healing and reduce the risk of complications.

It’s important to note that laser tattoo removal is not always able to completely remove a tattoo. Factors such as the tattoo’s size, color, and ink composition can affect the outcome. Some tattoos may only fade or lighten rather than completely disappear. It is recommended to consult with a qualified laser tattoo removal specialist to discuss the potential results and any possible risks or complications associated with the procedure.
