With the number of tattoos at an all-time high, more and more people are coming down with “tattoo regret.” It used to be that people were stuck with their unwanted tattoos forever, but laser tattoo removal now makes it possible to eliminate them once and for all. Sergio M. Zamora MD, FACS performs laser tattoo removal for patients in Daytona Beach, New Smyrna Beach, and the surrounding communities in Florida.
What is Laser Tattoo Removal?
Laser tattoo removal involves using targeted laser beams to break up the various pigments in a tattoo so they can be absorbed and then eliminated by your body. It is a relatively comfortable procedure that provides immediate, long-lasting results over the course of several weeks or months.
Benefits of Laser Tattoo Removal
Modern lasers provide superior results compared to more traditional tattoo removal methods, which often left patients with an uneven skin tone or texture afterwards. Now it is possible to remove nearly any tattoo, even very dark ones that cover a large section of skin.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Laser Tattoo Removal?
Anyone who has a tattoo that he or she would like removed can be a good candidate for laser tattoo removal.
What do I Need to do Before Laser Tattoo Removal?
Avoid getting a sunburn or coming into contact with chemicals that might irritate your skin. Drink plenty of water the day before and day of your appointment, as your body can better absorb ink pigment when it is well hydrated.
What Should I Expect on the Day of my Laser Tattoo Removal?
Wear clothing that does not rub against your tattoo, or if possible, allow your tattoo to be exposed. Doing so will not only ensure your comfort afterwards, but could also negate the need for you to get undressed. We will have you sit in a reclining chair or lie on a table depending upon where your tattoo is located. You may feel a light stinging sensation as Dr. Zamora applies the laser beams, but that is about it. When finished, he may apply a moisturizing cream and/or gauze bandage to help promote healing.
How Long Does it Take to Perform Laser Tattoo Removal?
Each session usually takes less than one hour. The number of sessions you require are based upon factors that are unique to you and your tattoo. We will discuss a timeline for treatment with you during your initial consultation.
What to Expect After Laser Tattoo Removal
Laser beams break up ink a little at a time, so you will notice your tattoo slowly being erased after each session. The number of sessions needed will vary based upon the size of your tattoo and the colors of ink it contains. You may notice some light redness following each treatment but should otherwise experience no other side effects.
