When the dye particles absorb the laser light, they are broken into pieces and then absorbed by the immune system. This process usually takes several weeks. The larger the tattoo, the more sessions it takes to break up the paint particles. In other words, tattoo removal may not be completed in a single session. This process can take weeks, depending on the nature of the tattoo.
How is the procedure performed?
The most curious issue is whether this procedure is as painful as getting a tattoo. During the procedure, some patients report that they feel a slight pain, such as pulling a rubber band on the skin. In many applications, anesthesia is not needed. However, some patients feel more comfortable with a topical numbing agent, such as a local anesthetic. Local anesthesia can be used if necessary. But in general, getting a tattoo is a more painful process than getting a tattoo.
Pain can be reduced with creams. Immediately after the application, the skin starts to turn white, and redness and swelling may be seen around the tattoo. This is normal and will disappear over time.
Antibacterial ointment should be applied to the application area immediately after tattoo removal to reduce the risk of infection. It can be applied to every age group, every skin type, and every season.
How long does the effect last?
The number of applications required for good results varies according to the size, depth, and color of the tattoo.
It is appropriate to apply the application at intervals of 4–8 weeks in order to remove the maximum amount of tattoo pigment after each session.
Each session takes 10–30 minutes. After each session, the opening in the tattoo becomes more pronounced as the body sheds more pigment.
This method is quite simple and safe. If you have tattoos that you do not want to have on your body, it may be a good idea to have them removed instead of covering them with another tattoo.
