ABOUT YOUR LASER TATTOO REMOVAL TREATMENT

The Q-SWITCH Nd:YAG Laser has been designed to remove tattoos without scarring. While this technique does not employ a thermal process, it can make the skin feel warm after the treatment. This is not a burn, it is the extra flow of blood into the treated area; a natural part of the healing process.

  • A whitening appearance called “frosting” will occur immediately after the laser impact. This is normal and will disappear within an hour.
  • After approximately an hour, the area will appear slightly red and raised – again this is normal. Normal appearance will usually return within 24 hours.
  • Healing is complete within 4-6 weeks, although this can vary.
  • Fading of the tattoo ink will start to become apparent after two to three weeks.
  • More apparent results usually occur after the second or third treatment. You should think of the treatment as working layer by layer. As the laser penetrates deeper into the skin it removes deeper pigment each time you are treated.
  • Amateur tattoos require between 4 and 8 repeat treatments
  • Professional tattoos can require 8 or more. There are exceptions when some tattoos require more than the ‘normal’ number. This can be due to the density, amount and depth of ink in the tattoo. It is impossible to accurately guess this without a biopsy. Some tattoos may not clear 100%. Your tattoo may just fade.
