What is Laser Tattoo Removal?

There may be several reasons why you no longer want a tattoo. Maybe it resembles a painful memory. Maybe it has faded over time. Or maybe it just doesn't represent who you are. Whatever the reason, advances in tattoo removal technology have made it possible to lighten and maybe even eliminate the unwanted tattoo in its entirety. At Renew Laser & Skin in Sugar Land, TX, anti-aging specialists Dr. Dhara Patel and Dr. Nina Desai provide tattoo removal with a state-of-the-art laser system. The laser device is known to yield better results than other tattoo removal technologies and might require fewer treatments.

Is Laser Tattoo Removal Right for Me?

There are a number of factors that might improve the success of your removal procedure. Good candidates for laser tattoo removal:

  • Have a strong immune system. A strong immune system helps the body’s ability to break down and eliminate the ink properties.
  • Are in good overall health. Not smoking and eating a well-balanced diet aid the body’s immune system in performing at full efficiency.
  • Have great contrast between the color of the ink and the skin color. The greater the contrast, the greater the result.
  • Have older tattoos. The older a tattoo is, the better it will respond to treatment.

How is Laser Tattoo Removal Performed?

As soon as Dr. Patel or Dr. Desai determine that your skin is ideal for tattoo removal treatment, the tattooed area will be prepared with a careful cleansing and an application of numbing cream. Dr. Patel will then pass the handpiece over the targeted skin, which will release pulsing laser light and energy. The time it takes to complete the procedure varies and depends on the size of the treatment area. Sometimes, the tattoo may require multiple treatments before obvious results are seen. These factors will all be discussed with you during your consult.

What is the Recovery Process After Laser Tattoo Removal?

After each treatment, an ointment will be applied to your treated skin along with bandages to to help protect the area. You may experience redness, swelling, and sensitivity. You could also feel a sunburned sensation followed by a slight scabbing. It is important to follow aftercare instructions precisely to expedite the recovery process. After the skin has healed, your next treatment session can be scheduled. Dr. Patel does not recommend scheduling sessions sooner than 4 – 7 weeks apart.
