How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

In years past, removing a tattoo was a long and difficult process. With new developments in laser technology, tattoo removal is far easier, less painful, and able to remove all ink colors. The process works by the laser energy beam shattering the ink pigment into tiny particles, which are then shed by your body over time.

What Can I Expect With the Procedure?

The first step in removing an unwanted tattoo is to meet with our friendly team at BPS Med Spa. We will evaluate the tattoo and advise you of the number of treatments you may need to remove the inks from your skin. Once you have decided to move ahead, a series of appointments are arranged. The laser treatments are performed four to eight weeks apart. As the tattoo becomes lighter, the time between the laser treatments can be less.

What is the Experience Like?

As the laser energy enters your skin, you will feel a “zap” on the surface, which is not overly painful. A numbing cream can be applied to make the treatment more comfortable. The treatment is likely more comfortable than what you experienced when the tattoo was applied! The treatment is generally tolerable, and the results are well worth the trouble. No more hiding a tattoo you no longer love – you will be left with ink-free skin, at last!

Will laser tattoo removal leave a scar?

When the tattoo was applied to your skin, it may have created a scar. The laser tattoo removal process will stimulate natural skin healing, and even those scars can be reduced. The process removes tattoo ink, but may not fully resolve a noticeable scar if it was created by the tattoo artist.

What will my skin look like after the treatment?

Your skin has been affected by laser energy, and can appear red, swollen, feel tender, and may blister and scab over.

How many treatments will I need?

Every tattoo is different in ink color and size. You may need as many as ten treatments for a large tattoo and as few as three for smaller tattoos.

How do I plan for my treatment?

Before your laser tattoo removal session, shave the hair on the area, and cleanse your skin fully, without applying creams or lotions. Wear comfortable clothing that is easily removed and the tattooed area easy to access.

What do I do after my treatment?

After every laser treatment, avoid the sun and always wear sunscreen. When showering, run water over the area and gently pat it dry with a clean towel. If the area crusts over, do not touch it, but let it heal, and apply the ointment we recommend. You must avoid swimming or hot tubs until the area is healed.
