Tattoo Removal Treatment
Tattoo removal treatment with certain lasers can produce an immediate whitening of the skin. This is due to the release of microscopic steam bubbles in your skin. This change usually lasts no more than a few minutes, but it can be up to two hours before it disappears and is a sign that the tattoo removal treatment is working.
Tattoo Removal - Bleeding & Blistering
Bleeding or blistering may occur in the treated area even when using low power levels, and are more likely to happen when higher power levels are used. A little pinpoint bleeding or small blistering will heal very quickly, and all this requires is a simple dry dressing following the procedure.
Once the whitening of the treated area disappears it is not unusual for the skin to become quite red, swollen and appear inflamed. This may last for several hours.
Any discomfort is minimal and may be controlled by using standard painkillers and by placing an ice pack on the affected area. Aloe Vera gel is beneficial in reducing inflammation.
The treated area must be kept clean and provided this is done properly it is rare for the treated area to become infected. If this happens please contact us on our emergency number (available 24/7) 07912 481412.
It is also vitally important to make sure that the areas of your tattoo that have been treated are not exposed to strong ultraviolet light or sunshine after the procedure.
We recommend the use of an SPF30 sun protection cream, available at the clinic, or complete masking of the tattoo while in the sun during the whole treatment period.
