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.

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.
