What is Laser Tattoo Removal?
Laser tattoo removal is a simple, safe, and effective treatment that erases unwanted tattoos. The treatment uses lasers to break down the ink into tiny particles that can be removed by the body. At DP Mediskin, we use dual beam for better treatment with FracTat.
How Does It Work?
When getting a new tattoo, the ink is injected deeply into the skin and is usually in two different cells: those smaller than white blood cells and those larger than white blood cells. The white blood cells recognise the ink as a foreign entity, and therefore, remove the smaller cells, leaving the larger ink cells which are generally harder to remove.
During the treatment, the laser targets that ink, and breaks down the larger ink cells into small pieces without causing too much heat on the skin. These fragments are then disposed of through the natural process. Large pieces may continue being visible hence may require multiple sessions to remove the tattoo completely.
Is Laser Tattoo Removal Suitable for Me?
Laser tattoo removal is a safe, non-invasive procedure hence suitable for almost every individual. However, pregnant women or those who are breastfeeding should wait to get their tattoo removed. Also, if you’re going through chemotherapy, you should wait till your treatment is over before having your tattoo removed. On your first consultation, our dermal clinicians will assess your situation to determine if the procedure is right for you.
How Many Sessions Will I Require?
Generally, the number of sessions you will require ranges from 4-8 depending on the colour of the tattoo, size of the tattoo, years of tattoo, age, location, as well as the skills and experience of the operator.
However, at DP Mediskin, we have highly skilled and experienced operators who know the best way to remove even the most challenging tattoos. With their experience and our state of the art FracTat equipment, our clients end up needing fewer sessions, thereby reducing the overall costs. Once you come for your first consultation, our dermal clinicians will customise the best treatment plan to meet your needs, ensuring faster and better results.
How Frequent are the Treatments?
Time is required between sessions to allow the body’s system to remove the ink cells that have been broken down. Generally, sessions can be 6 to 8 weeks apart, but our clinician will advise you after assessing your skin and tattoo.
Pre and Post Treatment Care
At DP Mediskin, we are not only responsible for your tattoo removal treatment but also your pre and post-treatment care. We do our best to make the process as comfortable and smooth as possible.
Before the treatment, it’s recommended that you drink lots of fluid, especially water, and stay healthy. Your body system will need to process the ink out and won’t do that effectively if it’s fighting off a cold. It’s important to avoid direct sunlight for at least 2 weeks before the procedure. Also, avoid using any chemical creams on the tattoo area.
After the treatment, you must ensure that you don’t irritate the area. Therefore, wear loose clothing and avoid direct sunlight for about 2 weeks. Avoid vigorous physical activities, swimming, hot shower, sauna, or spa. Drink lots of water and rest to help speed up the cleaning process. In case of any unusual discomfort, contact us as soon as possible.
How Painful is Getting a Tattoo Removed?
A common misconception is that removing a tattoo removed is more painful than getting one. While it’s not completely pain-free, removing a tattoo is far less painful, and if done by an experienced operator, you just feel some discomfort or a warm, prickly sensation. This is because a lot of energy is needed for the laser to break up the ink cells under your skin.
What are the Side Effects of Laser Tattoo Removal?
Laser tattoo removal does not have any serious side effects. The only side effects that you might experience include redness, swelling, and tenderness. These are usually temporary and mild and typically subside within a day.
At DP Mediskin, we ensure that proper protocols are followed to minimise these risks. In addition, our experienced operators use more advanced equipment hence less chances of damage to your skin.
Is Tattoo Removal Safe?
Yes, laser tattoo removal is very safe. The energy is only absorbed by the ink, and therefore, the surrounding tissues are not affected.
What is the Cost of Laser Tattoo Removal?
The cost of a laser tattoo removal depends on the type of tattoo, size, and colour. Smaller tattoos are easier to remove compared to larger and more colourful tattoos which can be more challenging, thereby taking more energy and time. Either way, DP Mediskin is committed to offering affordable laser tattoo removal services to Melbourne residents. Once you come for your initial consultation will work out a price for your individual tattoo.
Furthermore, with our treatment, you will need fewer sessions compared to other less experienced operators who may be cheaper for each session, thereby reducing the overall costs.
How Long After Getting a Tattoo Can I have it Removed?
Did a tattoo not turn out as you had hoped? Well, you can have it removed as soon as it has healed. Although it may appear healed after a week or two, it’s recommended to wait a minimum of six weeks for it to heal completely.
Can the Area be Re-tattooed?
Once we have removed the tattoo, completely or partially, you can still get a new tattoo in the same area. In fact, a common reason for getting a tattoo removal is the wish to replace the current with another.
