How Much Does Tattoo Removal Hurt?

While we know that getting a tattoo certainly requires you to withstand a bit of pain, many people are concerned that the won’t be able to handle the pain of tattoo removal. 

The good news? 

Though it might not exactly be the most comfortable experience in the world, there are now less painful options when it comes to how to remove a tattoo. 

PicoWay laser is more effective at getting rid of your ink with less pain associated with traditional lasers. 

This is because it actually sends energy to the targeted area incredibly quickly – we’re talking about one trillionth of a second here. Because the laser pulses are much shorter than traditional lasers, you’ll experience much less pain. 

Plus, a topical numbing agent will also be used on your skin, to manage the pain even more. The laser actually works by breaking up the ink in the tattoo into tiny particles, which are then removed naturally through the body. 

Even better? 

The PicoWay laser works on a variety of tattoos and skin types, from multicolored ink to pigmented lesions. Depending on the size and colors of your tattoo, you may need to come in for a few laser sessions to get it removed completely. 

Still, the PicoWay laser has been proven to require fewer sessions to completely remove the tattoo than traditional lasers. 

Additionally, the PicoWay laser has an incredibly low risk for scarring after the procedure. Because the tissue in the area surrounding the tattoo is impacted by the laser, scarring can often be a concern when traditional lasers are used. 

Though scarring can still happen depending on your skin type, even if it does, it will be much less noticeable than in standard tattoo removal procedures.

What to Expect After Your Tattoo Removal Treatment

We want to be sure that you have as much information as possible before you decide to get your tattoo removed. 

Now that you have a better understanding of the potential pain associated with your treatment, let’s talk about proper aftercare. 

Immediately after the session is finished, you should expect to see redness around the area where the lasers worked.

In general, this should only last for a few hours after your treatment. If you have an event or just don’t like the look of the redness, it’s safe to use makeup on the area.

Later on, the area around the tattoo will actually turn a whitish color. You may also experience a continued bit of redness, in addition to mild swelling. This is all normal. 

You and your team will come up with a specific aftercare plan for your needs after your session is finished. Make sure that you follow their instructions to the letter to ensure that everything heals as it should.
