Kelly Osborne has been open about her desire to have her unwanted tattoos removed, and she has also recently been sharing her apprehensions about tattoo removal on Twitter as she has started the consultation process.
As she sat in the waiting room she tweeted her fears of the laser rather than the pain, but fellow celebrity Lily Allen was on hand to reassure her, tweeting back that she has had the procedure and had no problems.
The idea of applying a laser to any part of your body can feel a little scary, but the lasers used for these kinds of procedures are very safe when in the hands of a competent and experienced operator.
The discomfort has been likened to having an elastic band snapped on the skin and should not cause extreme pain. Any inflammation or bleeding caused by the treatment is temporary and simply requires some TLC and simple precautions, like protecting the skin from the sun’s rays.
Laser treatment is certainly the safest and most effective form of tattoo removal, and although there will be some discomfort and inconvenience, it is worth it when you are living with tattoo regret!
