What is
Tattoo Removal?

Many times, tattoo on the body can become unwanted or get distorted owing to various reasons. For them, laser machine can be used to completely remove tattoo in multiple sessions.

Many types of laser are employed for tattoo removal, commonly being Qswitch NdYag laser. With different wavelengths this laser is suited for all types of tattoo.

How it works

Laser light selectively targets ink particle in the skin causing them to disintegrate. Disintegrated ink particles in the skin are taken care by the immune system of the body and is eliminated.

Over the time and multiple sittings, depending on the type and extent of tattoos, they either completely vanish or just a faint spot is visible. Done properly, nearby skin of tattoo, is completely unharmed.

How it is done

After proper medical history and drug history, site of tattoo is prepared with numbing cream under occlusion and after some time laser is used to directly target the tattoo.

Using proper eye cover precaution for both patient and doctor, laser beams are targeted carefully on tattoo ensuring minimum scattering of laser beam. Process is almost painless with good preparation and counselling.

Potential risks and
side effects

Under trained hands and eyes, the procedure does not involve any risk or serious side effects. However, some patients may feel burning or tingling sensation, or proper burn. Remote chance of scarring or keloid formation is there, so proper history taking is important.

Some tattoo inks are very resistant and even after multiple sittings, may have faint spot visible, residual ink stain, which may need different approach. Very rarely it can cause granuloma formation or can induce allergic reaction in the patient, again emphasizing the importance of proper history taking.
