There are a number of factors that might improve the success of your tattoo removal. The best candidates for laser tattoo removal:
- Have a strong immune system. This helps the body’s ability to dispose of the broken down ink properties.
- Are in good overall health. Not smoking and eating a well-balanced diet aid the body’s immune system in functioning at full efficiency.
- Have a deep contrast between the ink color and the skin color. The greater the contrast, the better the result.
- Have tattoos that are several years old. Older tattoos tend to respond more favorably to treatment.
Once Dr. Anees determines that your skin is ideal for tattoo removal, a technician will prepare the treatment area by thoroughly cleaning the skin and applying a topical anesthetic. The Spectra handpiece will then be precisely passed over the tattooed skin. As it releases energy and pulsing laser light, the handpiece breaks down the ink into smaller particles, which are then absorbed into your body. The time it takes to complete the laser service varies, depending on the type and size of the treatment area, but the procedure generally lasts about 10 – 30 minutes. At times, the tattoo may require multiple sessions before obvious results can be seen. The treatment process and expectations will be discussed during your consultation.
What to Expect
At the end of each session, a topical cream will be applied to your treated skin along with bandages to protect the area. You may notice redness, swelling, sensitivity, and a white discoloration on the skin. You may also feel a sunburned sensation followed by minor scabbing. It is important to adhere to aftercare instructions as recommended to expedite the recovery process. Once the skin is ready, you can reserve your next treatment session at Med Spa At Seena One. Dr. Anees generally recommends scheduling laser tattoo removal treatments about 4 – 8 weeks apart.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does laser tattoo removal cost?
The cost of your tattoo removal will depend on the number of treatments needed and areas being addressed. Each case is unique, and some clients require more sessions to complete the removal process. During your private consultation, we can discuss the estimated cost of your Spectra laser treatment and provide information about our membership program to help make your procedure more affordable.
What are the side effects of laser tattoo removal?
Some individuals experience redness, swelling, tenderness, crusting, sunburn sensation, or itching immediately after their treatment. Dr. Anees will discuss your treatment plan and explain what can be expected from your procedure.
Why do I need so many laser tattoo removal sessions?
Size, color, location, and the age of the tattoo determine the number of treatments necessary to effectively lighten or remove the tattoo. During your consultation, the treatment regimen will be reviewed and any questions regarding the number of estimated sessions will be answered at that time.
When will I see results?
The results and appearance of the tattoo vary from patient to patient. After each treatment session, you will see the tattoo become lighter. Due to the various types of inks used in tattooing, the results and the number of treatments may vary. Typically, multiple treatments will be required and are scheduled 4 – 8 weeks apart.
Are there any alternatives to laser tattoo removal?
Laser tattoo removal is the safest and quickest option to keep your skin intact and to effectively diminish the appearance of body art. In some cases, dermabrasion or microneedling may also be used as part of your treatment plan to aid in the removal process and to help maintain the health of your skin.
