What is Tattoo Removal?

Tattoo removal is a procedure whereby an indelible tattoo design is removed from the face or body of the patient. It is performed when patients want a different style or design for their tattoo or because of a change in their lifestyle.    

What are the types of Tattoo Removal procedures?

The most common type of tattoo removal is laser assisted tattoo removal. Other types include surgical skin grafting procedures, microdermabrasion, salabrasion or tattoo removal by rubbing with salt, cryosurgery using liquid nitrogen, tattoo removal using trichloroacetic acid that removes the top layers of skin and even surgical excision.  

Are Tattoo Removal procedures painful?

Numbing methods including injecting local anaesthetics, blowing cold air, placing ice packs and applying numbing creams are used during tattoo removal in order to minimise the pain involved.

When can I travel by air after Tattoo Removal?

Patients should not travel by air for at least one day after having nonsurgical tattoo removal procedures performed. Patients should wait for a few days after surgical tattoo removal procedures and get a certification from their surgeon that they are fit to travel by air.  

How long does recovery take after Tattoo Removal procedures?

It takes about one to two weeks to recover from nonsurgical tattoo removal procedures. Recovery from surgical tattoo removal procedures may take up to two months.

What after care is required after a Tattoo Removal procedure?

Patients should take any prescribed medications and apply any topical medication correctly. Patients should not wear tight clothing till the area is fully healed. They should not put any lotion or cosmetic on the treated area for at least three days. They should not get the area wet for at least two days. They should not expose skin to direct sunlight. They should not touch or scratch the treated area until completely healed.

Tattoo RemovalWhat Is Tattoo Removal?The application of tattoos is a widespread practice with a long cross-cultural history. Because of their widespread application, there is a rising trend for the removal of unwanted tattoos. Tattoo removal is the complete removal of the multicolor ink that is deposited under the skin. Treatment OptionsBefore the advent of the medical laser, common techniques included cryosurgery, dermabrasion or excision. Darker colored or black inks are most responsive to treatment, although devices that include a variety of wavelengths can successfully address the fuller spectrum of colors seen in the modern tattoo. Treatment of tattoos can be performed anywhere on the body. How Does It Work?Removal of tattoos depends on the principle of selective photothermolysis; the proper wavelength is applied and the ink absorbs the energy preferentially, causing it to break down. The body’s natural maintenance processes remove broken down pigment over time. Surrounding tissue is largely unaffected but not entirely spared, so tattoo removal is typically uncomfortable for patients. Numerous sessions are required to maximize results. The Q-switched laser is the most commonly used for tattoo removal. Adequate skin cooling maximizes patient comfort and allows practitioners to deliver more energy safely; modulation of treatment parameters allows users to customize treatment based on the condition and skin type of the individual patient, to maximize results as well as manage patient comfort and the potential for side effects. Treatment of darker skin with laser- or light-based modalities can be problematic due to the increased potential for burning or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH).

Stretch Marks Removal  
Two different laser treatments are used to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. When stretch marks are red or purple the IPL (intense pulsed light) laser can be used to reduce the redness and decrease any associated inflammation. For stretch marks that have faded to the silvery-white color, the Fractional laser resurfacing is preferred. The Fraxel treatment uses patented fractional technology to target damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into the skin. The laser causes minor injuries in the skin called microtrauma. The microtrauma created by the laser stimulates the production of collagen which helps to replenish the lost collagen in the stretch marks and helps to reduce imperfections. The Fractional laser resurfacing treatment causes the stretch marks to become narrower and gives the skin a smoother appearance.
