Initial Consultation

Before beginning the actual laser tattoo removal treatment, you'll have an initial consultation with us to discuss your tattoo, its size, colors, location, and any other relevant factors. Our tattoo removal specialist will assess your tattoo to determine the number of sessions required and provide an estimate of the overall treatment timeline and cost.

Your First Treatment

During the actual treatment, the technician will use a specialized laser device that emits intense pulses of light targeted at the tattoo ink beneath your skin. You may experience a sensation similar to the snap of a rubber band on your skin, along with some mild discomfort. However, the pain is generally well-tolerated by most individuals.

The Tattoo Removal Process

The duration of each laser tattoo removal session depends on various factors, such as the size, color, and depth of the tattoo. Generally, a session can range from a few minutes to an hour. Keep in mind that tattoo removal is a gradual process, and multiple sessions are typically required to achieve optimal results. The sessions are usually spaced several weeks apart to allow your skin to heal and your body to flush out the fragmented tattoo ink.

Post-Treatment Care

After each laser tattoo removal session, it's crucial to follow the post-treatment care instructions provided by your specialist. This may include applying an antibacterial ointment, keeping the area clean and dry, avoiding direct sunlight, and refraining from scratching or picking at the treated area. It's normal to experience some redness, swelling, and blistering, but these effects should subside within a few weeks.

Embarking on your laser tattoo removal journey can be an exciting and liberating experience. By understanding the process and knowing what to expect during your first treatment session, you'll be better prepared both mentally and physically.
