Getting tattoos is an amazing way to express yourself. Varying in colour, shape and size, these beautiful illustrations bring out one’s personality and are visually appealing to many. But, just like most things in life, mistakes can be made and feeling regret for tattoos you’ve gotten in the past is more common than you think.
When you come to the decision that you do not like a tattoo you’ve previously had done and want it to not appear on your body, there’s only a few effective solutions on the market. You could always use makeup to try and cover it up, but this method is not only ineffective at most times but also temporary.
Here at Beauty Fairy, we offer laser tattoo removal for those who want a permanent and highly effective solution with little to no downtime.
How Does It Work?
Laser tattoo removal utilizes our highly advanced laser equipment to target the tattooed area and fade out the colour and ink from within. When you first enter our clinic for this procedure, a numbing cream will be applied to the area of operation. This helps make the procedure more comfortable, and minimizes any pain or discomfort you may feel. You will also be given eyewear to ensure that you are protected from the rays of our lasers. The lasers are finally used on the targeted area, releasing a single powerful pulse to the inner layers of the skin. This pulse eventually hits the area of skin where the ink is being held (the dermis), and the reaction to this laser causes the ink particles to break apart from one another and slowly dissipate.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
Since removing tattoo ink can be a complicated procedure that requires targeting the deeper layers of the skin, multiple treatments are required to achieve effective results. The more treatments you undergo, the more your tattoo will fade and the more you will begin to see transformative results. As a general rule, we recommend you undergo 6-9 sessions with 4-6 weeks apart inbetween for recovery time. The amount of treatment needed may be less or more depending on how faded or pigmented the tattoo is. It will also depend on the colours used, the size of the tattoo, etc.
How Should I Prepare for a Tattoo Removal Session?
There are certain guidelines you should follow prior to a tattoo removal session to ensure the best and most safe results possible. These rules include:
- No tanning for at least a month before your appointment: Pigmented skin from the sun or a tanning bed will make the lasers job on which area to target more difficult.
- Ensure your skin is free of makeup, creams or medication before your appointment: Topical creams or makeup that lie on your skin may interfere with the laser or other equipment we use for the procedure.
- No smoking for at least two weeks before your session.
If you follow these steps prior to an appointment, you should feel good knowing your treatment will end up being it’s most effective.
