It takes a little time to undo something that was meant to be permanent! Tattoo removal is a process, and takes time. Most all tattoos will require more than one session to remove entirely. Many factors will influence the actual number of treatments needed : age of tattoo, color, location, size ……just to name a few. Call to schedule a free consultation and to get a quote.
The tattoo removal laser treatment may create a superficial burn wound. Some patients may experience bruising or swelling. There is immediate whitening of the treated area, which usually lasts for several minutes. Many clients then develop blisters, crusts, or scabs within 8-72 hours, which may last for 1-2 weeks or more. The treated areas may be pink or pale after the scab separates. Scarring, which can be hypertrophic or even keloid, can occur but is very rare. Loss of skin pigment in the treated area can occur, and is temporary except in very rare cases. Healing is usually complete within 4 weeks, although this may vary.
