Debunked: Does Laser Tattoo Removal Scar?

By | Laser Tattoo Removal | No Comments
One of the major concerns about laser tattoo removal is scarring. Patients worry that the laser will burn or leave behind a scar following treatment. In truth, laser tattoo removal rarely scars. There are many sources of this myth that laser tattoo removal scars.   Firstly, getting a tattoo can cause scarring. It is not uncommon for a tattoo to leave some scarring, which may not be visible or evident until the tattoo has faded or is removed using lasers. This can make it appear that the laser caused the scar, when in actuality, it was there the entire time.    Secondly, scarring can occur if patients do not follow proper aftercare procedure. The tattoo and the skin surrounding the tattoo should not be exposed to the sun and kept covered under clothing when going outside. Your master esthetician will likely recommend the use of a broad spectrum SPF to protect the skin from UV rays and the sun.    Finally, if you are known to scar, or are prone to keloids or hypertrophic scars, scarring from laser tattoo removal is more likely. In these patients, your master esthetician will evaluate your individual risk for scarring, detail your options, and recommend the proper course of action.

Laser Tattoo Removal: The Results You Can Expect

By | Laser Tattoo Removal, Nonsurgical | No Comments

In the 21st century, tattoos no longer have to be a permanent fixture on the skin. The human body does breakdown tattoo ink throughout a person’s life, but this will usually only result in some minor fading and blurring. Laser tattoo removal can help enhance and speed up this process to fade or remove tattoos. 

As far as the results you can expect from laser tattoo removal, it will depend on the size, color, and age of the tattoo. Older tattoos that have already experienced some natural fading will often respond better to treatment than fresher tattoos. Black ink is also easier for the laser to identify and, therefore, remove. Your master esthetician can advise you on the specifics as they relate to your tattoo. 

In general, it takes between three and six laser tattoo removal sessions to see long lasting results. However, it depends upon your individual goals. Many patients use laser tattoo removal to fade older tattoos to seek cover ups, which usually takes fewer sessions to achieve the desired result than those who want to remove a tattoo altogether. Even with a full removal, some remnants of the tattoo may remain, but with enough sessions and a good result, it should be hard to tell there was ever a tattoo.
