Things to Know about Tattoo Removal
One of the benefits of growing up and maturing is recognizing your fears and insecurities as simply that, fears and insecurities. Being able to move on and grow is usually only a gift that comes with age and hindsight. Another benefit of growing up and maturing is knowing that you made a mistake by getting that large cheetah tattoo during that drunken Spring Break in Mexico. Thankfully, just because that memory is permanently etched into your imagination doesn’t mean that tattoo has to be permanently etched into your skin. Insert, Laser Tattoo Removal. What is laser tattoo removal? How does laser tattoo removal work? Deux Rosé medical spa in Las Vegas has the answer to that and more below.
How Does Laser Tattoo Removal work?
Using a Q-Switched YAG laser, pulses of light energy are emitted and absorbed by the tattoo’s pigment. Absorbing the energy causes the particles in the pigment to heat up and shatter into tiny fragments that are then removed by the body’s own natural process. The surrounding tissue remains unharmed.
How Many Laser Tattoo Removal Treatments will I Need?
While every patient is different, most individuals need about 6-9 sessions spaced 8-12 weeks apart. The number of treatments will vary based on the depth and color of the tattoo, the age of the tattoo, the location of the tattoo, and if the tattoo was done by a professional or an amateur.
Does Laser Tattoo Removal Remove all Tattoo Colors?
Laser tattoo removal can help fade or remove most colors of tattoo ink. The wavelengths emitted by our laser resolve dark (blues and black) and red inks the best. Oranges and Purples usually fade fairly easy, as well. And yellow ink or colors combined with yellow inks are more difficult to remove and may never completely resolve.
What Should I Do After Laser Tattoo Removal?
After your Laser Tattoo Removal treatment, antibiotic ointment should be used for the first 2-3 days post-treatment. Mild redness and swelling at the site may occur, but that will resolve in 1-2 days. Patients may wash the treatment area with soap and water as normal.
