The course of the laser tattoo removal
Do not sunbathe before the laser removal of your tattoo. If you prefer, we can numb the treated area with anaesthetic cream. During the procedure, the laser gradually breaks down the pigment of the tattoo into tiny particles. Those are deposited on the surface skin in the form of scabs or are absorbed by the blood from which they are captured by the body white blood cells and flushed out of the body.
Painfulness of the procedure
Tattoo removal by Candela laser is almost painless thanks to the dynamic cooling. The laser pulse produces a sensation similar to a slight pinching. We usually treat smaller tattoos without anaesthesia. If the tattoo is extensive or located in a delicate area, we apply an anaesthetic cream prior to the procedure.
How many times does the procedure need to be repeated
Unfortunately, we cannot estimate in advance how many procedures will be needed to remove a tattoo. The dyes of the tattoo are deposited in multiple layers of the epidermis and the laser cannot target and break down all of the layers at once. To remove the tattoo completely, we must repeat the procedure. There must be an interval of four to six weeks between the individual procedures.
The number of times the procedure has to be repeated to remove the tattoo depends on its size and location, on the dye and the composition of the ink. Different dyes absorb different wavelengths of light; it is relatively easy to remove black, grey and dark blue dyes, on the other hand, the removal of red, yellow or green dyes is much more demanding on the functioning of the immune system.
Healing and recovery
After the tattoo is removed by laser, the skin heals for 7 to 14 days and slight swelling and scabs are normal. During the healing phase, do not visit the swimming pool, sauna, etc., as the wound could get infected. Consistently protect your tattoo from sunlight for at least three months.
