Laser Tattoo Removal Q&A

What is laser tattoo removal?

Laser tattoo removal is a common method used to eliminate unwanted tattoos. It involves using laser technology to break down the tattoo ink particles in the skin and allowing the body’s immune system to gradually remove them over time.

How does the process work?

Consultation: Our expert medical providers at MD Esthetics will examine your tattoo/s and come up with a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your goals.

Procedure: During the treatment, you will be given eyewear to shield your eyes from the laser as well as our SUB-Z cooling machine for numbing. The Pico Discovery laser device emits pulses of high-intensity light, which target the tattoo ink beneath the skin’s surface. The laser selectively targets the pigment colors of the tattoo without damaging the surrounding skin.

Sessions: Tattoo removal is typically not a one-time treatment. Most tattoos require multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart to allow the body to eliminate the shattered ink particles. The exact number of sessions depends on various factors, including the tattoo size, ink colors, depth, and individual response to treatment. Your medical provider will recommend the amount of sessions it will take to achieve your goals. Most people will need anywhere between 6 – 10 sessions.

Results: Laser tattoo removal can significantly fade or remove a tattoo, but complete removal may not always be possible, particularly for tattoos with certain ink colors or deep penetration.

What are the aftercare instructions?

After each session, you’ll need to follow the aftercare instructions given to you by your provider. This usually involves keeping the treated area clean and avoiding sun exposure. It is important to take good care of the treated area after each session to promote healing the minimize the risk of complications.

Are there any side effects after treatment?

Some individuals may experience temporary side effects such as redness, swelling, blistering, or lightening or darkening of the skin.
