Enjoy effective removal of unwanted tattoos with laser therapies
Most patients are aware that a tattoo is forever. But what if you don’t want it to be? What if you regret that tattoo and want to clear your skin? Dr. Rose Wong and her team at Hush Beauty in Vancouver, British Columbia, can help with laser tattoo removal using the Picosure device.
How does laser tattoo removal achieve results?
Laser tattoo removal works by breaking up the ink in the tattoo with a laser emitted from the Picosure handpiece. The laser sends short pulses of light energy into the skin, breaking the tattoo ink into tiny pieces, which are then eliminated by the body’s natural immune system. Laser tattoo removal does require several treatments, and the darker the pigmentation and the higher the quality of ink, the more treatments will be needed to achieve complete removal from the skin.
What can I expect during treatment?
Most patients describe the sensation as a quick pinch or stinging. The laser also provides a sensation of heat to the treatment area. The area around the tattoo may be red and swollen after treatment, but this will go away within a few hours. You may also experience some bruising, though it resolves on its own. It is important to keep the treated area clean and dry following treatment and follow any post-operative recommendations from Dr. Rose Wong.
How many treatments will I require to see the results I want?
The specific number of treatments needed depends mainly on the size and location of the unwanted tattoo and the depth and colour of the ink. Most tattoos require 6-8 treatments for complete removal.
What are the risks associated with laser tattoo removal?
The risks associated with laser tattoo removal are minimal but include infection, scarring, skin discoloration, and blistering. It is essential to consult with Dr. Rose Wong before treatment to ensure you understand the risks and benefits of this procedure.
