Dr. Jay uses advanced laser tattoo removal technology to shatter your tattoo ink into tiny particles. Using high-intensity light beams, the laser breaks up the pigments without damaging the surrounding tissue. Over time, your body’s immune system absorbs the ink particles and removes them naturally through your waste.
You may need multiple laser treatments to achieve your desired results based on your specific tattoo’s design. Factors influencing the number of treatments you need include the tattoo’s:
Black ink is often the easiest to remove. Other colors, including green and red, may take additional treatment sessions to achieve the desired results.
Dr. Jay evaluates your tattoo to determine how many sessions you need before the start of your treatments.
During tattoo removal, you will sit or lie in a comfortable position. Dr. Jay may administer a local anesthetic on the treatment area to ensure your comfort, and he provides you with specialized eyewear to protect your vision.
You may experience a tingling or slight burning sensation in the treatment area, especially in the more tender areas of your body.
Following your treatment, there may be swelling or redness in the treatment area. These symptoms often resolve on their own in a few days. Dr. Jay may recommend ice compresses to reduce swelling and over-the-counter pain relievers to keep you comfortable.
You should also avoid exposure to the sun for several weeks after treatment until your skin has healed completely.
While considered safe and effective, there are possible side effects of laser tattoo removal treatments. Dr. Jay discusses your goals for removing the entire tattoo.
Risks of laser tattoo removal treatments include:
Several weeks after treatment, you may also experience allergic reactions to the laser treatment due to the interaction of the laser light with red and yellow inks. Dr. Jay usually treats these reactions with corticosteroids.
