Tattoos are placed in the middle layer of skin. Q-switched Lasers designed for Tattoo Removal come in multiple wavelengths to treat many different colors of tattoo ink. We have the best 3 lasers in the world by largest medical laser manufacturer. It has a level output without hotspots, this greatly reduces chances of blistering.
Before Laser tattoo removal:
Your tattoo should be well healed (3 months old or more) before beginning the removal process. You should keep the area out of the sun at least 4 weeks (8 is better) before and during the process, so your skin has the best healing power and least risk of complications. If you have to have the area in the sun use a good spf 50.
Typically ice packs, chilled cold air, numbing cream or injections are used to reduce or minimize pain and protect the top layer of skin. Cold protects the skin the other methods don’t. We use a Chiller before during and after laser tattoo removal treatments and can also apply numbing cream if desired. Numbing cream makes the process much easier.
After What to expect:
Redness, heat, sensitivity, for a period of time, depending on the size being treated your health and hydration. Usually immediately after treatment the area above the tattoo ink is raised, especially the first few treatments. It will have a frost or redness. Sometimes the frost resolves in a few seconds, sometimes a few hours.
Blistering often happens with very aggressive laser settings ( or with lasers with hot spots). Very aggressive laser settings are often used with inferior laser equipment. Sometimes blistering happens if the settings are raised too high. Most of the time there should be no blistering. Blistering can also happen if you add heat to the area that was lasered, thats why you should take if easy for 2 or 3 days and avoid raising you body temperature by a sauna, hot tub or exercise, etc.
If you have blister it is very important to NOT pop the blisters.
Blisters increase the risks of complication scarring and pain. Blisters have a higher chance of causing scarring. When there is scarring the laser light scatters before being absorbed by the tattoo ink. This causes even higher laser settings to be used by some practitioners, on future treatments, causing more scarring.
There are safer better ways of reducing scarring with special lasers FDA approved for removing stretch marks, 2 or 3 treatments are usually sufficient to improve the scarring and continue tattoo removal (after the healing). Our Medical director located on the same floor, has this laser. We recommend certain supplements helpful for controlling or reducing scarring, too. One person reported her bruise went away in 2 or 3 days rather than a week it normally takes her.
It is much more comfortable to not blister and much safer too.
The proper laser tattoo removal begins with an evaluation followed by effective laser settings that get progressively stronger as time and further treatments occur.
Advantages are a reduced risks, better resolution, clearer skin, less risks of scarring. Since the bodu does the majority of the removal, improving your body’s ability to eliminate toxins is the safest way to speed removal. It also has the “side effects” of improved functioning that leads to better health.
Patience, time, will allow you body to remove the lasered ink. An optimum diet and optimum nutrition with supplements can safely speed the removal process without risk.
If you want to blister from your laser tattoo removal treatments, besides being a less than wise choice, then Brooklyn Laser Tattoo Removal, Inc. is not the right place for you. We wish you good luck.
Why did we write this article?
We observed people who had scarring (who said they blistered after their laser tattoo removal treatments done elsewhere). Some scars were discoloration of the surface skin, some were irregular and lumpy skin. Unfortunately, they were brainwashed into believing that the right way to remove tattoos is by using enough laser energy that blisters are formed. Inferior Lasers cause hot spots. The hot spots are hotter and excess heat causes blistering. With inferior lasers, the energy is too low in some areas to be effective (and too high in others) so they raise the energy and often cause blistering.
