Looking to remove an old tattoo that you no longer love? Laser tattoo removal might be the solution you’ve been searching for! This cutting-edge technology utilizes laser light to break up the pigment in tattoos, making them less noticeable over time.
At Affiliated Dermatology, we are experts in laser tattoo removal and can help you achieve the results you’re looking for. While it’s important to have realistic expectations, it’s worth noting that getting around 80% reduction is a very achievable outcome. While some people do get 100% clearance, it depends on several factors such as the color of your tattoo, how long it has been there, the location of the tattoo, and how intricate the designs are. If you have a green tattoo, you may have noticed that it almost never fades, making laser removal an especially attractive option. On the other hand, microblading tattoos tend to respond very well to treatment.
It’s important to note that laser tattoo removal requires multiple treatments, with each session spaced four weeks apart. It typically takes 10 or more sessions to achieve desired results, so anyone who promises a quick fix is not being honest. After each laser session, you may experience some swelling and blisters. However, these blisters are a sign that the ink is leaving your body, so it’s important not to pop them. Instead, use lots of Vaseline to help your body heal.
