Tattoo Removal FAQ in Barrington, IL

Why do you have to wait 6 weeks between tattoo removal?

About six weeks is the ideal waiting time between laser treatments because that allows the treated area to heal while the immune system gets rid of the ink. Following the treatment aftercare instructions can help increase the rate of removal and keep your skin in the best condition possible.

Which skin type is best for tattoo removal?

Tattoo removal is more effective for individuals with lighter skin (specifically Fitzpatrick type 1 or 2 skin types). Because lighter skin does not significantly absorb laser light, most of the laser energy is focused on the tattoo pigment. In contrast, dark skin siphons a portion of laser light from the tattoo.

How long does skin hurt after tattoo removal?

Redness, tenderness and swelling usually subside a day or two after treatment. Blisters start forming within 24 hours after treatment and they may appear alarming, but these indicate that your body is healing as it should.

What pulls ink out of a fresh tattoo?

The safest way to quickly remove a tattoo is by laser therapy.

Do tattoos get worse with age?

Generally, the change is slow and the better care you take of your skin, the better the tattoo’s appearance remains.

What is the hardest color tattoo to remove?

Is one session enough for tattoo removal?

Can I remove my tattoo at home?

The DIY methods you can find online simply aren’t strong enough to remove pigments from the dermis — most of them affect the epidermis only. Some methods can even damage the skin and lead to unpleasant side effects. Below are some of the most touted at-home tattoo removal methods and why they don’t work.

How can I remove a tattoo naturally?
