For the millions of people who grow tired of their body ink, there are many questions to be answered: Is tattoo lasering permanent? Does it hurt? How long does it take?
Today we discuss the many questions surrounding tattoo removal so that you can feel prepared to take the next steps towards removing your unwanted tattoo.
Tattoo removal takes time.
In fact, depending on the quality of your tattoo and skin type, you will likely require at least six treatments to completely remove it.
This is due to the laser technology which breaks down particles bit by bit.
In between treatments, you will need to give your body time to continue to digest and break down the pigment.
The laser technology of today does remove even the most stubborn pigments from the skin.
Lidocaine should be injected at the start of your treatments to prevent discomfort.
However, many patients experience blistering and discomfort as your skin heals for a week or so after treatment sessions.
However, this discomfort should go down as less pigment needs to be removed over time.
It is possible that once all of the pigment has been removed that your skin may have some white patches or slight scarring due to the extensive laser treatments.
It is important that you seek the services of a board certified physician who has a lot of experience working with this technology.
This can ensure a safe and effective treatment experience.
