Many people have tattoos and then later on in life regret them. A change in personal circumstances such as a new girlfriend or boyfriend may lead to having a tattoo removed. Laser tattoo removal in San Francisco involves the use of an intensely hot laser beam to dissipate the individual ink particles in the tattoo.
Each patient’s results and the number of sessions required to remove a tattoo will depend on the immune system and well being of the prospective patient. An individual whom drinks plenty of water, eats healthily, and does not smoke, may see faster results with less laser tattoo removal sessions. This reduces the cost of the overall treatment and time spent in the clinic. Prior to any laser tattoo removal treatment given, each LaserAway patient will undergo an initial consultation to discuss general options, potential risks, and possible outcome of the treatment.
Laser tattoo removal in San Francisco involves medical professionals with years of experience and training to ensure a reliable service and excellent results. Aftercare treatments are necessary to avoid infection and to assist in the healing of the skin without scarring. It is vitally important not to expose the treated area to sun as this will produce more pain and prevent the skin from healing. A topical antibiotic ointment will be applied to the treated area and covered by a sterile dressing or bandage. Areas which have received laser tattoo removal procedures will need to be washed with a very mild soap to avoid irritating the skin and fresh antibiotic ointment will need to be applied twice daily for a week.
Avoiding swimming or taking a bath will help the skin to heal faster. If scabs, crusting, or small blisters appear these should be left alone as any interference may cause slight scaring. At any time for a minimum of four weeks, the treated areas should be patted dry after washing, in no way should the skin be rubbed with anything if possible. If a patient is suffering undue pain, excessive problems, or the area appears not to be healing after several days they should return to the clinic where they received laser tattoo in San Francisco to seek further advice.
