People decide to get a tattoo for several reasons, but there are only a few reasons to get a tattoo removed. The most common reason is because they don’t like the tattoo anymore or it was a mistake. While some people elect to seek out a clinic for laser tattoo removal, others decide to live with their unwanted ink because they fear any side effects that can arise from the process of laser tattoo removal. As anybody can guess, the most important part of having laser tattoo removal is to have a tattoo removed, and the second most important part is doing it without any scarring. Scarring and pain are the side effects that people fear most when it comes to laser tattoo removal.
Unfortunately, fear of the side effects has deterred people from seeking laser tattoo removal. Most people who fear laser tattoo removal have heard horror stories from a friend of a friend who read some fake news or an extreme account of a patient who was badly scarred from treatment. Others may have seen horrifying pictures of patients who went to an unlicensed clinic and got treated with an unregulated device. However, you can rest assured that whatever you heard and seen in those pictures are rare cases of extreme side effects of laser tattoo removal that do not happen when you go to a clinic that actually knows what they’re doing such as Lipolaser of South Jersey in Marlton.

If we’re being completely transparent, anybody who gets a medical procedure must understand that there is a small amount of risk involved, regardless of the procedure. From a simple dental procedure to common lipo treatment to stitches on a bad laceration, there is always a certain amount of risk involved because everyone is different and their body may respond differently. Even with laser tattoo removal, the results may vary and they depend on many different factors including pre-existing skin condition and location of tattoo, which our doctors consider prior to proceeding with treatment. However, the safest and most effective ways to remove a tattoo is through laser tattoo removal since most current devices only target tattoo ink and not other areas of the skin without ink.
Is Pain a Side Effect?
Unfortunately, pain from laser tattoo removal is inevitable. However, there are ways for us to help reduce the pain. People have described the pain as a quick series of rubber band snaps against the skin. Then again, everybody handles pain differently, so a rubber band snap could be unpainful to one person but could be more extreme for someone else. Nonetheless, there is really nothing to fear. If you can withstand the pain of a getting a tattoo, then you can certainly withstand the short pain of having it removed.

Will Laser Tattoo Removal Leave a Scar?
Since fine needles are used to inject ink into the skin, people bleed and scab when they get tattoos, which mean that tattoos are essentially scars with ink in them without the ugly scabs that might come up after the healing process. During the removal process, the skin may become inflamed after treatment. In some cases, the area of the skin where the tattoo was removed may scab during the healing process, depending on the location and depth of ink in the skin. Typically, tattoo ink is placed in the dermis, which is under the top layer of skin. However, some new or inexperienced tattoo artists may go too deep into the skin, and that will take longer for the ink to be removed. Scabbing is natural and the skin will eventually heal. In fact, the skin needs to heal before the next laser session can be conducted, which is a minimum of six weeks. In some instances, patients may be left with the shadow of the tattoo after the skin has healed. This is caused by the type of ink used for your tattoo and the depth in which it was placed. Tattoo shadows and temporary hypopigmentation may arise after laser tattoo removal. Remember, it is okay to ask questions about the process. The best way to avoid any further damage to your skin is to visit a clinic that has a proven track record of successful laser tattoo removal sessions like we do at Lipolaser of South Jersey in Marlton.
