Laser tattoo removal treatment – a few facts you should know

Posted on 18 Aug, 2010

Do you have tattoos and want to get rid of them? If your answer is yes, then laser tattoo removal treatment is a perfect solution for you. This treatment is known for being quicker and more effective than other removal procedures, and the latest lasers even work on large tattoos which contain bright colours.

During the laser tattoo removal procedure, lasers target the ink which is present in the tattoos. This breaks the tattoo into small particles which are then removed by the immune system.

Once the tattoo removal treatment is complete, you then need to take special care of the treated skin in order to experience optimum results.

What happens after the laser tattoo removal procedure?

After the procedure, the doctor will often apply an ice pack to the area and cover it with a bandage to protect it. Some patients experience temporary redness or a burning sensation for a few days, although these symptoms will subside.

How much will it cost?

The cost of laser tattoo removal largely depends on the size and type of tattoos. For instance, if you have a small tattoo it will probably be faster to remove it. In short, the number of sessions required to remove the tattoos determines the cost.
