Are you the not-so-proud owner of some regrettable ink? Do you have tattoos that you want to get rid of? So, don’t wait, get them removed.Successful tattoo removal requires a high-powered laser that can deliver enough energy within the absorption spectrum of a wide range of colours. DrKothiwala’s SkinEva Clinic uses High powered Alma Q, which is ideal for treating darker and brighter tattoos. The treatment mechanically breaks down ink particles without causing thermal damage and minimizing the risk of scarring or hypopigmentation
What is the mechanism of Tattoo Removal?
Unwanted dark and multi-coloured tattoos can be safely and effectively eliminated with Alma Q Laser. Using a combination of laser wavelengths that target different ink colours, high-intensity light beams break up the ink particles in the tattoo, revealing clear, ink-free skin with minimal risk of scarring or hypopigmentation. The high-power Q-Switched Nd: YAG 1064nm laser is ideal for treating darker ink colours (black, blue and green), while the 532nm wavelength is effective for brighter ink colours (red, orange and yellow). During a tattoo removal procedure, laser light is applied to the tattooed area of the skin. The light is selectively absorbed by the tattoo ink particles, leaving the surrounding skin tissue and chromophores unharmed. The tattoo ink particles absorb the laser energy, heat up, and shatter into smaller ink particles.
What happens during the session?
Your skin will be cleansed and numbing cream will be applied. You’ll be given a pair of protective eye shields to wear during the procedure. Alma Q laser is customized according to your tattoo colour, skin colour and area involved. During the treatment, you may feel slight pain or a burning sensation. You may experience mild redness and swelling post procedure. Immediately following the treatment, an ice pack is used to soothe any dismonfort. An antibiotic cream is applied to protect the treated area.
How much time is required for recovery?
Post-procedure, a crust is formed on the treated area, which takes approximately two weeks to fall off. Post-treatment care should be followed until the scab completely heals. Keep the treated area clean, dry and hydrated. Use moisturizer prescribed by your doctor to keep any post-procedure itching and dryness at bay. Don’t scratch or pick at the scab as this may result in infection and scarring. You may apply cool compresses or ice packs to reduce discomfort and inflammation. For approximately 2 weeks after the procedure, hot tubs, swimming pools and any form of soaking must be avoided as they may it may interfere in the healing process. Laser-treated areas should be protected from the sun. Wear sunscreen prescribed by your doctor if you must go out in the sun.
How many sessions will I need?
The purpose of this procedure is the removal of a tattoo or to make the pattern as unrecognizable possible by lightening the tattoo pigment. The laser energy directly targets tattoo ink in the skin, which disrupts the ink and allows the body’s immune system to break it down and get rid of it. Black tattoo pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths, making it the easiest colour to treat. The number of treatments you will need depends on the age, size, and colour of your tattoo. The colour of your skin, as well as how deep the tattoo pigment goes, will also affect the removal technique. After each visit, your tattoo becomes progressively lighter. Sessions are spaced at intervals of 4-6 weeks. Generally, multiple treatments are necessary to achieve the desired results.
Can you completely remove a tattoo?
With Q switch Nd: Yag laser or pico lasers it is possible to remove tattoo fully or partially depending on ink, site and nature of tattooing. Tattoo made of black, green, blue ink located near to centre of body and made by professional tattoo artist can be removed easily with laser treatment. Tattoo made of red or yellow ink or located distal to centre of body may take multiple sessions.
Does tattoo removal leave a scar?
Sometimes ghost shadow of tattoo can be there after laser treatment. Rarely textural changes in form of mild atrophy may leave in skin after removal of tattoo. These textural changes can be improved with fractional ablative lasers.
Do tattoo removal creams really work?
There is no evidence of any cream that can remove a tattoo. They can lighten or fade the tattoo a bit.
Are there any side effects of the tattoo removal procedure?
Laser treatment is often safer than many other tattoo removal methods, such as excision, dermabrasion, or salabrasion because laser treatment selectively treats the pigment in the tattoo. And there are very few side effects. With the mechanical or salabrasion method of tattoo removal, the incidence of scarring, pigmentary alteration (hyper- and hypopigmentation), and ink retention are extremely high.
