How many treatments will it take to remove my tattoo?
Unfortunately, due to the nature of this procedure, it is impossible to predict exactly how many treatments it will take for complete results. It could take as little as 3 treatments for an amateur tattoo or as many as 15 treatments for a professionally applied tattoo. How quickly your ink fades will depend on several factors, such as the colors of your tattoo, the type of ink used and how your body responds to the treatment.
How far apart are the treatments?
Your body needs time to break down the tattoo ink pigments after each laser treatment. This is a slow process, therefore you will typically schedule each treatment a minimum of 6 weeks apart.
What will my skin look like after each treatment?
Your skin will most likely be red and feel like it has mild sunburn. This typically goes away after a couple of hours. There may also be some bruising. At times and with certain inks, there may be mild blistering that usually heals in about a week. After each treatment you will be given detailed instructions on how to care for your treated area.
Will the laser tattoo removal hurt?
Patients have reported that laser tattoo removal feels like a rubber band snapping quickly on your skin. In order to make each patient as comfortable as possible, we offer anesthetic (numbing) cream that can be put on the tattoo before each of your treatments. Tattoo MD also utilizes The Synercool, a device that blows very cold air directly on to the treatment area. The combination of numbing cream and The Synercool makes treatment very tolerable for most.
Does tattoo removal leave scars?
The type of laser used at Tattoo MD leaves virtually no scars, however, in rare cases, those with scarring disorders, such as keloids, have an increased risk of forming a scar.
Who will do my laser tattoo removal?
The laser tattoo removal will be performed by one of our physician assistants who is trained to do this type of procedure. Dr. Alex Kaplan, the president of Tattoo MD, supervises the treatments.
