HOW IS IT GENTLE?
In the same way that getting your tattoo was associated with temporary distress, we cannot promise that getting the tattoo removed will be completely pain-free. The effect of the laser hitting the tattoo ink in short bursts causes a “snapping” sensation and momentary discomfort. If the area to be treated is large, more discomfort can be expected. In addition, the area where the tattoo is located and individual sensitivity are factors which influence the level of discomfort
The good news is that there ARE ways of reducing this discomfort. The most effective are:
- Skin cooling with the cold air Zimmer Device (accepted industry standard)
- Topical local anesthetic cream
Once you have had a treatment session, we also recommend applying a cold compress to the tattoo area continuously for about 24-48 hours to minimize inflammation.
