*Results and patient experience may vary.
Before your laser tattoo removal session, your medical professional will determine the type of laser to use and how many treatments you’ll need. The number depends on your tattoo’s age, size, type, and pigment depth. Your medical professional will also test the laser on your skin to see how it reacts.
You may see slight bleeding, redness, swelling, and blistering for several hours or days following treatment. Over the weeks to follow you may see flaking, peeling, or scabbing of the treated area. Handle the treatment site gently. While the site is healing, you should avoid sun exposure and public swimming pools. Once the skin has completely healed you can undergo another treatment.
At LaserAway, our medical professionals use laser energy to break up and disperse tattoo pigment safely. Laser tattoo removal works by targeting pigment colors in the skin’s dermis, which lies between your outer layer of skin (epidermis) and the tissue beneath. The tattoo pigments absorb the laser’s beam and fragment. Your body then absorbs these fragments and eliminates them.
The most common type of laser used in tattoo removal, the Q-switch produces light pulses of extremely high peak power. Several types of Q-switch lasers exist, and each one targets a different color spectrum at different wavelengths. Because Q-switch lasers are so precise and intense, tattoo pigments fragment instantly, and the surrounding tissue is spared.
Though you may see results immediately, more likely you’ll have to have several treatments before a difference shows. The number of treatments depends on the amount and type of ink used and how deeply it sits. Additionally, it takes three to six weeks between treatments for your body to absorb the pigment residue.
