How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

Laser tattoo removal is a safe, non-invasive procedure that removes tattoos from the skin using a high-powered laser. The laser passes through the skin layers and causes the ink to vibrate. This causes the ink particles to break into smaller pieces, without harming the surrounding areas. These tiny fragments are absorbed by the body and disposed by the immune system as waste.

How to Prepare for Your Tattoo Removal Procedure

Before the procedure, make sure to do the following:

  • Take adequate rest the night before your session.
  • Clean and shave the tattooed area to remove excessive hair.
  • Do not apply any lotions, moisturizing creams, or oils because they may cause your skin to be more heat sensitive.
  • Wear loose clothes for easier access and to avoid scraping your skin after the session.
  • If you are taking any medication, please consult your doctor before undergoing the procedure.

What to Expect During the procedure

The procedure is done under the supervision of our licensed doctors. Here’s what you can expect during the session.

  • A topical cream or a local injection will be used to numb the tattooed area.
  • You will be provided with a pair of goggles to protect your eyes.
  • We will test how your skin reacts to the laser to assess your sensitivity and determine the right settings that will work best for you.
  • A handheld device will be placed on your tattooed skin and activate the laser to emit light pulses, causing the ink to break into smaller fragments and then flushed out by the immune system.

Aftercare

For a faster skin healing process, it is essential to strictly follow your aftercare plan.

  • Use cold compress to soothe the treated skin area.
  • Avoid exercising or doing physical activities for at least 48 hours.
  • Avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen to protect your skin.
  • Avoid taking hot showers, pool water and saltwater for at least one week.
  • Stay hydrated and take care of your immune system.

Side Effects

Experiencing side effects is expected after your tattoo removal procedure. For most clients, the common side effects are:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
  • Bruising
  • Blistering
  • Itchiness
  • Scabbing
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Hypopigmentation

These side effects are only temporary. It is important to always follow the doctor’s instructions after your tattoo removal procedure for the side effects to subside faster.

FAQs

People have different pain thresholds, thus, the level of pain experienced during a tattoo removal varies. There are also areas that are more sensitive than other body parts such as areas with less fat, thin skin, and near a bone.

Scarring is not common with this procedure especially when you properly follow the instructions before, during and after the session. If your skin already has an existing scar before the procedure, it remains even after tattoo removal.

Laser tattoo removal is a generally safe procedure if done by a qualified medical professional.

A single session may last from 5 minutes to 1 hour depending on the complexity, size and color of your tattoo. For individuals with large tattoos, the area is divided into smaller patches in different sessions.

The number of sessions you will need depends on the size, color, location, type of ink and age of your tattoo, as well your skin type and complexion.

There are tattoos that are more challenging to remove compared to others. In some cases, a tattoo may not be completely removed with laser treatments. However, repeated sessions will considerably fade your tattoo, making them less visible.
