Laser Machine We Use
At Euromed Clinic Center, we use PICO Genesis Enlighten III for tattoo removal. Picosecond laser has the power to remove all colors of tattoo ink such as green, red and yellow. It uses shorter pulse width to break the pigment into tiny particles that are absorbed by the body’s lymphatic system and removed naturally. There is no risk of hyperpigmentation with a picosecond laser, and fewer sessions are required.
The PICO laser utilizes a focus lens technology that converts the laser energy into pressure waves with faster speed. As a result, the ink pigments shatter into dust-like particles quickly.
The practitioner usually provides pre-procedural guidelines to patients before performing the tattoo removal procedure. It is essential to follow these instructions to avoid complications during or after the procedure.
- Remove the unwanted hairs from the targeted area.
- Avoid undergoing laser procedures like laser hair removal before the treatment.
- Your skin should be clean. Do not apply creams, oils, or lotions to your skin.
- Avoid excessive sun exposure and UV tanning beds for at least 4 weeks before the treatment.
- Use a sunblock (SPF 30 or more) daily.
How is the Procedure Performed?
Your dermatologist will first clean and prepare the treatment area before starting laser tattoo removal. All the body areas except the treatment area will be covered with a piece of cloth. You will be asked to wear safety spectacles for eye protection against the laser.
The laser device will direct the laser beam to the tattoo as the procedure begins. The ink pigments absorb the laser energy and dissipate into minute particles. These particles are then removed from the body naturally. The whole procedure requires 15 minutes to complete depending upon the size of the tattoo and type of ink used. After getting the treatment, you may experience redness and swelling, but they subside quickly.
- Avoid excessive sunlight, tanning beds, and sunlamps for three months to help the skin heal quickly.
- It is better to refrain from strenuous exercises, such as heavy workouts, swimming, and running for a few days post-treatment.
- You can use ice packs or prescribed pain relievers to reduce the discomfort.
- Avoid touching the treatment area unnecessarily.
Are there any Possible Side Effects?
The risk of side effects is rare if a qualified laser specialist performs the treatment. Some possible side effects associated with laser tattoo removal are:
- Burns or wounds
- Changes in the texture of the skin
- Tattoo ink visibility even after the completion of the treatment.
