How does tattoo removal work?
However, for colored tattoos, different wavelengths may be required to target each pigment color effectively.
What can you anticipate during a tattoo removal treatment?
Once the ideal settings are determined, the laser is directed at the tattooed area with precision, ensuring that only the tattoo pigment absorbs the light. Protective glasses are worn throughout the session. The procedure can be uncomfortable, and an ice pack is applied immediately afterward. It is normal for the skin to experience blistering, swelling, or even slight bleeding after each session.
Though individual experiences vary, an average of 6-8 sessions is typically required to achieve tattoo removal. A healing period of 6-8 weeks between sessions allows the skin to recover, with the tattoo gradually lightening after each treatment.
