During your consultation, your medical professional will determine approximately how many treatments you’ll need. Before deciding on a treatment plan, the clinician may first test the laser on your skin to see how it reacts.
Prior to the start of the first session, your clinician will apply anesthetic cream and you’ll be asked to wear protective eye gear. You will also be given a cooling device to help you remain comfortable.
Your clinician will then place the laser’s handpiece on your skin and deliver laser pulses directly into the tattoo pigment. Many people liken the sensation to that of a rubber band snapping against the skin. The number of pulses will vary based on your tattoo, but most treatments only last a few minutes.
