Laser Tattoo Removal- The Complete Guide!

Laser Tattoo Removal

Having a tattoo is the dream of every millennial and that’s the reason half of the generation is having a tattoo lately. But not everybody is lucky enough to have the tattoo of their dream, and a lot of people end up having the wrong one. So if you are among the list of disappointed souls, then laser tattoo removal is there to help you out.

Laser tattoo removal is an innovative procedure using cutting edge laser technology to minimise or remove the effect of tattoo without any side effects. The process uses a high-intensity light beam that breaks the tattoo into several colours, among which black is the easiest colour to treat.

If you are looking for a Laser tattoo removal process then you should consult with a specialist at Diamond Skin. Our practitioner will analyse your tattoo based on your chronological age, skin age, skin condition, skin colour and the size and colour of the tattoo. If the tattoo is multicoloured then a couple of sessions are required to get the desired result.

Elements of Laser Tattoo Removal

The removal technique is quite complex and depends on several factors. The skin colour and depth of the tattoo creates a great impact on the Laser tattoo removal process. It is a painless process but you will feel certain discomfort. Although it does not require any topical numbing cream, if the tattoo is in the sensitive or intimate parts of your body then special action is required.

On the day of the procedure, the practitioner will make you understand the steps involved in the process. Then he or she will give a protective eye shield to cover your eyes. Then the practitioner will test the reaction between your skin and laser beam to determine the energy required to remove the tattoo. Then he will use the laser on your skin superficially. The laser will pass intense light which will hit the pigment and will get absorbed.

How Many Sessions Are Required?

The laser tattoo removal process requires time and patience. Most of the tattoo does not fade away in a single session, multiple sessions are required and with each session, the tattoo continues to lighten up.  A strict aftercare process needs to be followed to avoid complications and to get good results.

After the treatment, the technician will use an ice pack on the treated area to soothe the skin. And then he will apply an antibiotic cream to avoid further complications and might cover the area with a bandage. While going outside it is advisable to use a sunblock with SPF 50 or more as the treated area will be very sun sensitive.

The risk of certain side effects is associated with Laser hair removal processes such as hyperpigmentation, infection or scar. But with proper technique and with a good aftercare regime these can be controlled. All you need to do is to consult our team of experts and discuss the method and troubleshooting.
