TATTOO REMOVAL LASER

Tattoos are very fashionable. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for people to want to get rid of them. We can easily do this thanks to the Q- switched laser.

The Q – switched laser aims to burst the pigments from a professional or non-professional tattoo and, therefore, make it disappear.

How?

Visible light is made up of several colors and therefore of several wavelengths. The laser will target the tattoo with the energy of light through a specific wavelength. The laser beam safely penetrates the skin and acts as a shock wave that will blast tattoo inks into microparticles. These will in turn be eliminated naturally by the immune system. Thanks to the precision of the laser beam, we can easily follow the outline of your tattoo without damaging the surrounding healthy tissue.

What are the pre-laser instructions?

An initial consultation is necessary in order to discuss the treatment together.

Tattoo removal can be painful for some. We do not all have the same sensitivity to pain. If you have any doubts, it is possible to apply an anesthetic cream 1 hour before the session.

What to do after the treatment?

Immediately after the session, the treated area is marked by a graying of the pigmented area with peripheral redness, as well as a feeling of warmth which may also be accompanied by temporary edema (which generally disappears within 24 to 48 hours) and/or small crusts.

Temporary discoloration of surrounding hair may occur. This does not last more than a few days. A greasy cream will be prescribed for you and should be applied regularly for the first few days until the scabs disappear.

Sun protection must be applied for 1 month after the session.

Does it leave scars?

No. The Q – switched laser is the safest and most effective laser for tattoo removal.

What budget should you plan?

All our prices on our website, under the prices tab.

How many sessions are needed?

On average, it takes 5 to 6 sessions to remove professional tattoos, and 3 to 5 to treat amateur tattoos.

An interval of 5 to 7 weeks must be respected between each session. The number of sessions depends on the amount of ink used and its depth in the skin. Unfortunately, it sometimes takes more than 10 sessions to remove a very dense tattoo.

What are the contraindications?

Avoid treating skin:
– with ongoing dermatological problems: acne, eczema, dermatoses, etc… – too tanned – tattooed for less than 2 months.

Tattoo removal should not be done when you are pregnant (pregnancy).
