Laser tattoo removal is a non-invasive procedure that uses advanced laser technology to selectively target and break down tattoo ink particles in the skin. It is a safe and effective option for those who wish to remove unwanted tattoos or fade them for cover-up tattoos. At Versailles Medical Spa, we offer personalized laser tattoo removal treatment plans using state-of-the-art technology and a team of experienced medical professionals.
Certain aspects can make some individuals better candidates for laser tattoo removal. These include patients with an older tattoo or a strong contrast between the color of their skin and the colors on the tattoo. Also, patients with strong immune systems are better able to help the body break down and eliminate the ink properties. Lastly, patients in good overall health that do not smoke will attain the best potential results from this treatment.
Once we have determined that you are an ideal candidate for laser tattoo removal, the tattoo will be prepared with a thorough cleansing and an application of topical anesthetic numbing cream. The medical provider will then pass the device over the tattooed skin as it releases laser light and pulsing energy. The time it takes to complete the procedure will vary, depending on the size and location of the treatment area. Sometimes, the tattoo will require multiple treatments before noticeable results are revealed. These factors will all be discussed with you during your consultation.
After each session, a topical cream will be applied to the treatment area along with bandages to help protect the healing skin. It is not uncommon to experience swelling, redness, and sensitivity. You may also feel like you have a sunburn, which could be accompanied by minor scabbing as the area heals. It’s important to follow aftercare instructions precisely to expedite the recovery process. Once your skin has fully healed, your next session may be scheduled. Our team recommends scheduling sessions at least 6 weeks apart.
