How are tattoos removed?
The Nd: Q-switched 1064 nm YAG laser is one of the ways to remove tattoos. Earlier methods in tattoo removal involved the use of dermabrasion, salabrasion, surgery and CO2 lasers, but these procedures left behind scars or lighter skin in place of the tattoo.
Is the process painful?
The laser emits light in very short flashes of light called pulses. The impact of the energy from the powerful pulse of light is similar to the snap of a rubberband on the skin. The majority of patients do not require anesthesia.
How many treatment sessions will it take to remove the tattoo?
Homemade tattoos may require less treatments. Tattoo removal treatments may be spaced about 6-8 weeks. The number of treatments depends on the amount, type of ink used, and the depth of the ink in the skin, location of tattoo, along with individual health considerations.
Will the tattoo completely disappear?
In many cases, yes. However, it is very important to know that over 100 tattoo inks are in use worldwide today, none of which are regulated by the FDA. Not knowing which tattoo ink, how deep or how much was used, makes it difficult to predict the degree of removal on any given tattoo. Results may vary.
What type of post-treatment care is necessary?
A healing ointment and a dressing will be applied to the area. The treated area should be kept clean with continued application of ointment. A shower can be taken the next day, although the treated area should not be scrubbed.
