What Can You Expect In Laser Tattoo Removal?
Topical anesthesia is used and aids in the discomfort of tattoo removal. It is very possible that you will need several sessions to progressively lighten your tattoo. After your tattoo removal session, you should expect to:
- Use an ice pack to soothe the area
- Apply antibiotic cream and bandage the tattoo
- Avoid exposure to the sun and utilize sunscreen
- Follow all of your doctor’s directions
What Are The Side Effects For Laser Tattoo Removal?
Laser tattoo removal is one of the safest methods of getting rid of unwanted ink. This is because it does not present the same side effects as excision, dermabrasion, and salabrasion because it is targeting the pigment in the tattoo ink. However, it is important to consider these side effects:
- Removing your tattoo could result in a scar
- In many cases, your tattoo will never be fully removed
- Could result in hyperpigmentation
- Cosmetic tattoos may become darker before they fade away

Laser Tattoo Removal FAQs:
Does Laser Tattoo Removal Completely Get Rid Of My Tattoo?
The success of getting rid of your tattoo depends on the size of your tattoo, the colors in your tattoo, how long you have had it, and the depth of the pigment. It is common that the tattoo may not be able to be fully removed, especially after just one treatment. Multiple treatments may help achieve the desired results.
Which Color Is The Easiest To Get Rid Of?
Black, blue, and green are the ink colors that respond best to treatment. Red, orange, yellow, and white inks are the hardest to get out of the skin.
Are Older Tattoos Easier To Remove?
Older tattoos are generally easier to remove than newer tattoos because the pigments have already begun to fade.
Are Professional Tattoos Harder To Remove?
Yes. Professional tattoos tend to use a greater amount of ink and more layers of ink, resulting in it being more difficult or taking more sessions to fully remove the tattoo. Amateur tattoos, because they tend to be uneven and superficial, use less ink and are usually easier to remove.
Will My Skin Color Affect The Removal Process?
Tattoo removal tends to be more effective for those with lighter skin because it does not absorb the laser light, allowing the laser to be focused solely on the pigment in the tattoo. Conversely, darker skin tones will absorb some of the laser light, making the treatment less effective.
Will The Location Of My Tattoo Affect My Treatment?
Yes. Certain areas of our bodies may prove harder to treat than others as some have limited vascular supply, which slows the healing process. As a result, tattoos on the hands, feet and lower legs are more difficult to remove than those on the chest or back.
Will I Have A Scar?
It is possible to have scar after treatment — especially those with darker skin are at a higher risk for scaring, however, we do our best to reduce this risk. Also, tattoos that are under scar tissue are harder to remove and take more sessions than those that aren’t.
What About Layered Tattoos?
Many clients will try to cover up their initial tattoo with another tattoo. Because there are more layers of ink, these tattoos will take longer to remove and more sessions. Also, because tattoo ink is translucent, darker tones are usually used to cover up the first tattoo, causing the process of getting rid of the tattoos to be more difficult.
Does Smoking Affect Tattoo Removal?
Yes, it does! Those who smoke have a lower chance of their tattoos being removed than those who don’t smoke. Smoking lowers a person’s ability to heal and their body to get rid of pigment.
Don’t be stuck with an unsightly tattoo that no longer resonates with you! Remember: nothing is written in stone. The Dr. Beauty med spa is committed giving you a clean slate on your skin with tattoo removal treatment.
