Tattoos No longer for life…Safe & Effective Laser Tattoo Removal
Laser Tattoo Removal Treatments Dubai
Painting of the human body goes back to the beginning of recorded history, and thus the removal of unwanted tattoos has probably been around that long as well. The variety of techniques used to apply tattoos is staggering; the source of the ink, where on the body the tattoo is applied, colors and designs used, even the depth into the skin can vary dramatically. Treatment settings can be easily adjusted to customize treatment to your specific needs for best results as well as maximum comfort during treatment, with extremely low recovery and downtime.
Medical lasers use a beam of light to significantly lighten or completely remove your tattoo. When the ink particles absorb the light from the laser, they are broken up into fragments and then absorbed through your body’s immune system. This process generally takes a few weeks. The larger the tattoo, the more sessions it will take to break down the ink particles. Spectra offers the best in class tattoo removal with superior color coverage.
What Is The Treatment Like?
Some patients say they feel a slight sting, like the snap of a rubber band on the skin. Many treatments do not require anesthetics. However, some patients feel more comfortable with a local numbing agent, such as a topical anesthetic.
THE STEP-BY-STEP PROCEDURE FOR LASER TATTOO REMOVAL TREATMENT
Your Doctor will talk you through the process so that you’re familiar ahead of time. There will be a numbing cream or lidocaine injection to the tattoo to help numb your skin and make laser passes more comfortable. The laser will be passed over your tattoo, and then your session will be complete.
Be sure to keep your treated tattoo protected from sun exposure. This lowers the risk of skin damage or darkened skin. Drink plenty of water to help your body process and eliminate the ink as rapidly as possible.
Continue treatments until you’re happy with the results – You may end up requiring more sessions than initially estimated. But in the end, the process will be worth it!
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments required for optimal results depends on the size, location, depth and color of the tattoo. Treatment should be performed 4 - 8 weeks apart in order to allow the body to remove the maximum amount of tattoo pigment after each treatment.
Each session usually takes 10 - 30 minutes. You will continue to see lightening of your tattoo after each treatment as your body disposes of more pigment.
What will my skin look like after treatment?
Right after your treatment, your skin will have a white discoloration, and the area around the tattoo may become reddish and appear swollen. This is normal and will disappear slowly over time. Results take about 5 weeks after each treatment. Immediately after treatment, antibacterial ointment and gauze will be applied to the treated area to minimize infection.
