Preparing For The Procedure

  • During your consultation, you will be asked to provide a medical and surgical history.
  • The tattoo to be removed along with its surrounding areas will be assessed to estimate the number of laser “shots” or pulses and sessions needed.
  • Photographs may also be taken to compare before-and-after results.

How The Procedure is Done

  • The area to be treated is prepared by cleansing with an antiseptic solution
  • Local anesthesia (EMLA) is applied for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • The laser treatment is started. The amount of laser pulses differ depending on the size and type of tattoo.
  • The laser precisely targets the pigment of the tattoo without damaging the surrounding skin.
  • The treatment takes 30 minutes depending on the area to be treated.

After The Procedure

  • An ice pack is applied immediately after the procedure to cool the area.
  • An antibiotic cream must be applied a few days after each treatment.
  • Scarring is rare. But there have been instances of blistering or slight bleeding after the treatment.
  • Avoid prolonged sun exposure. Protect your skin with products such as Celesty UV White
  • A sterile bandage must be worn a week after the treatment to protect the area and to aid healing.
