Post 5 Treatments
Do you have a tattoo that you regret ever getting?
Removing a tattoo has become much faster, safe and effective. At Forever Young Medical Spa we use the most advanced laser tattoo removal technology available in the market, Enlighten III ® by Cutera. It is the first nanosecond + picosecond laser system to feature multiple wavelengths and industry-leading specifications for the removal of tattoos. It uses high-power picosecond laser that pulses and quickly breaks down the ink particles in the tattoos.
How many treatment sessions are required?
The number of treatments required varies from person to person. It’s based on the composition, depth, size, and color of the tattoo. Schedule a consultation to get a better idea of the total number of treatments needed for the tattoo you’d like removed.
Why are multiple sessions required?
Tattoo ink is deposited deep into the skin and in order to reach all the ink, multiple sessions are required. Please note that the depth, size, and color of the tattoo also impact the number of treatments needed.
Will the tattoo disappear completely?
In most cases, yes. However, some ink colors are more difficult to clear than others.
Is the procedure painful?
When patients have laser tattoo removal treatment done, they may experience some pain, but is bearable. Patients compare the feeling to a rubber band being snapped against their skin.
What are common side effects post-treatment?
Most common side effects are redness and swelling immediately following the treatment, but it’s only temporary.
Is there any downtime?
You will be able to return to your regular activities immediately following the treatment.
