Most patients describe Laser Tattoo Removal as feeling prickly sensation, like rubber bands snapping on your skin. Afterwards, it might feel like a sunburn. Each patient has his or her own level of skin sensitivity and pain threshold, and different areas on the body are also more sensitive than others. To help make the experience more comfortable, we offer PRO-NOX and topical anesthetic.
The most common reactions include redness and swelling, though bleeding may sometimes occur. After treatment, the treated area will likely scab, and it will not be until the scab falls off that it’s clear whether or not the treatment was successful. Keep the wound covered with gauze and regularly redress the area, careful to not interfere with the scab.
Yes! If you have only a part of a tattoo you wish to remove (ahem, like the name of an ex), we can customize your treatment to remove only the desired portion, which you can have tattooed later when you have fully recovered from all required sessions.
