Can I Get Laser Tattoo Removal?
If you have a tattoo you've been considering removing, Body Bar MD may be just the solution you are looking for. Ideal candidates for laser tattoo removal should meet a few different criteria. You should have a strong immune system because this will assist your body in its ability to break down and eliminate the ink properties. You should be in good overall health. Smoking and eating an unhealthy diet limit the body's immune system from working at full capacity, which can alter your results. It's ideal if your skin and the ink color of your tattoo are deeply different in color since a greater contrast in color yields greater results. Additionally, the older your tattoo, the easier it will be to remove. Call Dr. Christy at either our Carmel or Terre Haute, IN office for more information today!
How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?
As soon as Dr. Christy decides that your skin is ideal for laser tattoo removal, we will get you on the schedule at either our Carmel or Terre Haute, IN office. Before we begin the treatment, your tattoo will be prepped with a careful cleansing and a numbing cream. We will then pass the Alma Harmony XL Pro over your tattooed skin as it releases energy and pulsing laser light. Treatment time depends on the size and type of tattooed area; however, each individual typically starts to see fading within 4 – 8 weeks. At times, the tattoo may require multiple sessions before obvious results are seen. Dr. Christy will explain different factors and expectations with you during your consultation.
What Can I Expect from Laser Tattoo Removal?
After each laser tattoo removal session, one of our Body Bar MD team members will apply a topical cream to your treated skin, along with bandages to help protect your skin while it heals. You can expect redness, sensitivity, and swelling at the location of your tattoo. You will likely also feel a sunburned sensation followed by minor scabbing. It's important to closely follow our detailed aftercare instructions to speed up the healing process. Once the area is ready, we will schedule your next treatment session. Dr. Christy does not recommend scheduling sessions sooner than 4 – 7 weeks apart.
