Laser Tattoo Removal Side Effects

For those looking for tattoo removal in Phoenix, the most effective procedure is available thanks to the breakthrough technology of cosmetic lasers. Now unwanted and outgrown tattoos can be a thing of your past with laser tattoo removal. This state-of-the-art treatment can start to fade your tattoo even after your first treatment. But many are still afraid of what marks might be left behind.

In the past, tattoo removal meant scarring and discoloration, leaving behind an uneven skin texture not to mention these painful treatments were slow. With today’s technology, however, side effects are minimal at most and treatment sessions only last a few minutes.

After a laser treatment, clients could experience the following:
• Redness
• Swelling
• Irritation
• Blistering (after a few hours)
• Itching (once it starts healing)
• Hypopigmentation (rare on fair skin tones, more common among darker skin tones)

For relief and quicker recovery from a laser tattoo removal treatment, ice can be applied on and off for the first 24 hours in 30 minute increments. For more information on tattoo removal post care, visit our tattoo removal aftercare page.

Best Tattoo Removal in Phoenix

For the best laser tattoo removal in Phoenix, it’s important to a laser technician with extensive training, experience and professionalism using the most advanced technology. Your health depends on it. That’s why you can trust your tattoo removal to National Laser Institute. NLI is the nation’s leading center for medical aesthetics and cosmetic laser training.

Q-Switch 1064 Laser

At National Laser Institute, they utilize only the gold standard for tattoo removal, such as the 1064 nm wavelength laser produced by a HOYA ConBio®. This advanced laser lowers the risk of hypopigmentation and scarring through short, fast pulses of light that limits the build-up of heat. Theses short pulses break down the ink into tiny particles that are then flushed out through the body’s lymphatic system over the weeks following the treatment. Due to this process, treatments should be space at least 4 weeks apart. An average of 5 to 15 treatment sessions, more or less, is usually needed to remove the ink used in a professionally done tattoo.

If you’re looking to remove a tattoo safely with no scarring left behind, it’s time to get the best tattoo removal in Phoenix. To make an appointment at National Laser Institute, contact a tattoo removal specialist at 480.290.7366 or feel free to use our request form.

Laser Tattoo Removal Aftercare

Now that you’ve started your laser tattoo removal treatments and taken the first step to removing that unwanted tattoo, aftercare is an important part of the treatment process. Specific tattoo removal aftercare directions should be given to you by the laser technician for the proper care of the area to ensure a safe and fast recovery. Post care instructions should be closely followed otherwise it can lead to scarring or pigmentation issues.

What should you expect after laser tattoo removal?

Once the procedure is done, the treated area might look red, irritated, and swollen, feeling somewhat like a bad sunburn. After a few hours, blisters may appear which is very common. A bandage will be applied after treatment and it’s important to keep the area covered until it heals. It’s important to keep your tattoo out of the sun weeks prior to the beginning of treatment and throughout the entire process.

To help reduce the side effects of tattoo removal and speed up the recovery time, follow these guidelines below:

  • Apply ice to the affected area off and on immediately after treatment to help with swelling and irritation.
  • Talk with your technician about pain medication for discomfort.
  • Drink plenty of water to help the lymphatic system flush out the ink.
  • Keep the area clean and dry while it heals. Regular soap and water is the best method for cleansing.
  • Avoid heat to the area, such as a hot shower, hot bath, and Jacuzzi or sun exposure.
  • Avoid swimming, high pressure showers or any form of soaking until the area is completely healed.
  • Do not scratch the area as it heals. The area can become infected and possibly scar.
  • If it becomes itchy and dry, use an ice pack for relief and Aquaphor for the dryness.
  • Do not remove any scabs that form or scrape the area. This too can cause an infection and scar.
  • Use a high sun screen daily on the area throughout your series otherwise you may jeopardize treatment.
  • Tattoo removal treatments should be spaced at least 4 weeks apart.

National Laser Institute, the nation’s leading center for medical aesthetics, will answer all your laser tattoo removal questions and provide you with the highest quality professional services to meet your tattoo removal needs in Arizona.

Did you know?

There is less probability for infection with Laser Liposuction because a smaller incision is required for the procedure. Also blood loss, a common complication with traditional liposuction, is minimal since the procedure is more accurate at targeting fat, and, therefore, does less damage to surrounding blood vessels. Any blood that does leak from a damaged vessel will evaporate from the heat of the laser.
