What Does a Tattoo Look Like After Laser Removal?

If you’re considering tattoo removal, you probably want to know what your final results will look like. People often want to know whether their tattoo will disappear completely or whether some color will remain. Your individual results will depend on many factors, but chances are good that we can use laser tattoo removal to help your tattoo vanish from sight

How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

While older tattoo removal lasers struggled with removing some colors, the Enlighten™ laser tackles even bright colors for total tattoo removal. Picosecond bursts of energy travel through the skin and react with ink particles. The ink particles break down into smaller pieces, allowing the body to filter them away over time. 

What Does a Tattoo Look Like After Laser Removal?

After laser removal, many tattoos have disappeared completely. Full removal may take as few as two sessions or as many as eight, but with patience and enough treatments, most people will see complete removal, while others will see their tattoo fade enough to be unnoticeable

Achieving complete tattoo removal can take multiple sessions with several weeks between each one. We will help you estimate how long you can expect your entire treatment to last, but you should prepare for treatment to take at least a few months. Some people don’t completely remove their tattoo because they have achieved as much removal as they hoped to get and have decided to stop.

What is Laser Tattoo Removal Like?

Numbing agents make your treatment painless, so ignore the horror stories of painful tattoo removal. The Enlighten™ laser has little to no effect on your skin, unlike many older lasers. The treatments only take 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the size of your tattoo, so fitting your sessions into your busy schedule becomes easier. 

Am I A Good Candidate For Laser Tattoo Removal?

People in good health who want to say goodbye to an unwanted tattoo make good candidates for laser tattoo removal. If you have skin conditions that might affect your treatment, make sure to discuss them with your medical history. The Enlighten™ works on all skin tones and types, and it can tackle tattoos in any shade of any color

Is There Any Downtime With Laser Tattoo Removal?

You may see some redness or small blisters over the next few days. These will resolve on their own, although you will need to protect the area from sun exposure between laser removal sessions to prevent damage.
