Removing your unwanted tattoo
Body Details laser tattoo removal procedure involves a series of treatments in which the laser breaks the tattoo into smaller and smaller pieces allowing your bodies’ immune system to remove it naturally. When the series of treatments are completed the skin will look as if the tattoo had never even been there.
How does it work?
Without laser tattoo removal your body will naturally break down your tattoo over time, (this is why old tattoos fade), and given enough time your body would completely remove the tattoo on its own. Body Details laser tattoo removal procedure simply accelerates this natural process by shattering the ink into smaller and smaller pieces making it easier for the body immune system to get rid of the ink. Gradually, your body absorbs it and filters it out naturally.
Is Laser Tattoo Removal painful?
Everyone`s opinion of pain is different and many of our patients say it feels the same as when they had the tattoo put on. The iscomfort is generally minimal and prior to treatment we will generally numb the area with an ice pack and Lidocaine. Upon completion of your treatment you can go about your normal day doing virtually all of your regular activities. We do ask that you protect and care for the treatment area as you would a cut or a blister until it has fully healed. The better care you take of yourself, the better results we can ensure you receive.
How many treatments will be required?
Your specific immune system, the type of ink used, and several other factors will dictate the number of treatments you will require. Because the Laser works with your body to break down the ink and the average immune system requires between 10 and 12 weeks to remove those particles once broken down, the quantity of treatments required varies but generally at least 8 treatments will be required.
What can you expect after each treatment?
Generally there will be some fading of darker colors/lightening of lighter colors after each successive treatment however it is not uncommon to see no visible change after the first treatment and in some cases for the tattoo to appear darker. Remember that the lasers treat the deepest ink first so the fading occurs gradually. Your individual immune system will filter out the ink at a unique rate.
General guidelines during treatment
First 24 hours:
- Minimize strenuous activities.
- Apply ice pack as often as reasonably possible.
- Keep treated area protected and elevated when possible.
After first day and until treatment area is visibly healed:
- Use a moisturizing cream such as aloe or hydrocortisone.
- Scarring is most often a result of poor wound maintenance which can also lead to infection. DO NOT PICK SCABS or POP
- Pass up swimming, as it will adversely affect the healing process.
- Steer clear of sun exposure and tanning beds while you heal.
- Allow sufficient healing time, usually 4-6 weeks, between treatments.
