What should I expect after treatment?
There are a handful of symptoms you might see post-treatment, including blisters, swelling, raising of the tattoo, pinpoint bleeding, redness, and temporary darkening. These are common and usually subside within a couple weeks. As always, consult your doctor with concerns.
How many sessions will it take?
There are several different factors that are involved in determining how many sessions will be required, but the average amount is 9 to 12 sessions.
Will my tattoo go away completely?
Before you start the process, it’s important to realize that no tattoo removal is guaranteed. Set expectations by speaking with a laser treatment expert – or three. Some tattoos only partially fade after several treatments and may leave a ghost image of your tattoo, and permanent raised scarring. So the big question is: Would you rather do a cover up, or be left with a ghost image or partial tattoo?
Are there any side effects?
The most common side effect is a darkening or lightening of the skin, known as either hyper-pigmentation this usually correct itself in 6 to 12 months after treatment. Scars (including keloid scarring) are also a potential, as well as infection, burns, and textural changes of the skin.
“The color coming and going is totally normal,” Dr. Evan Sorokin, a Cherry Hill, N.J., plastic surgeon,
said in a RealSelf Q&A. “You only the tattoo but also normal pigment. This goes away fully with time.”
“Incredibly impressed with this place and specifically with John. He does an excellent job about explaining to the process to you and he’s top notch at what he does I’d recommend him to my closest friends and family and am looking forward to my next session with him.”
