Laser Tattoo Removal Q & A

What is laser tattoo removal?

Laser tattoo removal is a medical procedure that reduces the appearance of a tattoo. As a medical procedure, only a trained professional like Dr. Hassan should perform it.

Laser treatment has been available for years, but technology has improved significantly. Dr. Hassan can now remove your tattoo faster, with less discomfort, and without damaging your skin.

What types of tattoos can be removed with laser treatment?

Dr. Hassan can remove any tattoo, but treatment varies depending on the size, age, area, and color.

The color of your tattoo plays a significant role in determining treatment. Darker tattoos are easier to remove than multiple-color tattoos. Colors require different wavelengths of light and may need additional sessions.

What can I expect during treatment?

To reduce discomfort during tattoo removal treatment, Dr. Hassan applies a numbing cream to the tattoo. He then places protective eyewear over your eyes.

Dr. Hassan places the laser on your skin and activates the light. During treatment, you may feel a snapping sensation, like a rubber band, as the laser targets the color in your tattoo.

How many treatments do I need?

The number of laser tattoo removal treatments you need to erase your tattoo varies. It typically takes about six to 10 treatments spread over six- to eight-week intervals.

What happens after laser tattoo removal treatment?

Following your laser tattoo removal, Dr. Hassan applies a special ointment and a bandage over the treatment area to protect the skin. Your skin may blister, swell, or scab after treatment.

It’s important to keep the area clean as the skin heals. Dr. Hassan may recommend you continue to use the ointment at home and keep your tattoo covered for up to a week after treatment.

While Dr. Hassan has had considerable success with laser tattoo removal, there’s always a chance that he may not be able to eliminate your tattoo. Due to the varying degrees of colors used in tattoos, it’s often difficult for him to predict treatment outcomes.

If you’re unhappy with the ink on your body and you’d like to know if it can be removed, call the office or book an appointment using the online booking agent.
