Tattoos are an exciting addition to our personal style when we get them, but we don’t always stay happy with them over time. They can fade in an undesirable way over the years, or you may simply prefer to no longer include them in your personal look. Fortunately, tattoos are not as permanent as they used to be thanks to advancements in tattoo removal treatments. If you are unhappy with one or more tattoos and interested in finding out if you’re a good candidate to have it removed, contact us today to schedule a consultation.
What to Expect with Tattoo Removal
Your treatment will begin with a consultation with our specialist, during which you will have the chance to ask about the treatment process and find out if tattoo removal is right for you. After determining that you are a good candidate, we can begin your series of treatments.
Tattoo removal is considered a relatively comfortable treatment, but we can provide you with a local anesthetic beforehand to ensure your comfort. You will likely need more than one treatment session, each spaced at least a couple weeks apart, to remove your tattoo as completely as possible. The exact number of treatment sessions you will need will depend on factors such as the size, age and color of your tattoo. Some tattoos may require as little as three treatments, while others may need over ten to fully remove.
While you will most likely be able to go back to your daily routine as usual, you may have some redness or swelling at the treatment site following your session. However, this is normal and should resolve on its own in a couple of days.
