At Nowak Aesthetics our caring and professional staff can assist you with cutting edge surgical technique, options for financing your procedure, and all the information and support you need during your aesthetic surgery process.
What to expect with Laser Tattoo Removal
Laser Tattoo Removal is a relatively uncomplicated process by which frequent and intense bursts of laser light break up tattoo pigment into smaller particles. These tiny particles are then destroyed and removed by the body’s own immune system. Several sessions are usually required with the sessions themselves lasting only minutes. Sessions are usually scheduled 3 weeks apart.
Just as tattoos are uncomfortable when they are inked, there is also some discomfort when they are removed. However, this can be managed with a local anesthetic injection or topical anesthetic cream.
After your Procedure
Your skin may have a slightly sunburned feeling for a few days after surgery. It’s important to keep the area clean with the use of antibiotic cream and a dressing. A bath or shower is ok the day after the procedure, but no scrubbing should be permitted on the delicate treatment area. Your tattoo will continue to fade as the skin heals, with redness or scabbing disappearing after a few weeks.
