Tattoo Removal  

To prevent infection, clean the area with soap and water every day. In addition, be sure to cover it with non-stick bandages and ointment when going outside in order to protect it from the sun. The wound should be completely gone seven to ten days after the procedure. It can take a few weeks or even a few months, however, for the pigment of the tattoo to fade away completely. You will be able to resume your usual activities immediately following treatment.

Working with low energy lasers minimizes the risk of burning, scarring or pigmentation. Conclusive research shows high levels of tattoo removal and high patient satisfaction. The laser`s light energy is absorbed into the artificial ink of the tattoo. This breaks it down into particles whereby the cells carry it away. With each treatment the tattoo becomes successively lighter and is gradually removed.

The length of the procedure is 5 - 10 minutes, depending on the size of the tattoo.
No anesthesia is needed, and the procedure is done on an outpatient basis.
Temporary Side Effects:
The sensation is unique to each individual; some describe a slight warm sensation while others notice a warmer hotter stinging feeling. Any discomfort felt ceases at the end of the treatment. Occasionally patients may notice mild blistering that usually fades without scarring.

Recovery:
A mild reddening & warmth is the most common effect. This normally lasts a few hours to a few days. Occasionally red spots are visible that fade completely and do not scar.

Risks:
Mild tracking or hypo-pigmentation of the skin.

Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL)
IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light Therapy is an effective tattoo removal treatment that targets intense light onto the upper layer of the skin basically burning it off. The treatment stimulates new skin growth, and when the treated area heals, the tattoo is usually much less noticeable than before. This method is said to be not as painful as laser therapy, and more effective, resulting in less treatment sessions. It usually takes 10-12 months after the treatment for full results to show. The cost of IPL is based on the number of pulses your tattoo requires to be removed.
