Side Effects and Risks
Will the laser procedure scar my skin?
There is a 5% chance of scarring. The Quanta Q plus C laser is unique in its ability to deliver specific laser light wavelengths in a powerful and ultrashort laser pulse. The burst of energy specifically targets the tattoo ink color with minimal damage to the skin and surrounding tissue minimizing the chance of scars. There are other factors that may increase your chance of scarring which our specialist will discuss with you during your consultation.
Is it painful?
Each tattoo removal session is much quicker than tattoo application. Patients compare the procedure to a rubber band being snapped against their skin. We incorporate the Zimmer, a technology that produces a steady stream of super-cooled air that assures you a comfortable experience.
What side effects might I experience?
Most patients experience some redness and swelling of the skin after a laser treatment. There may be minor blistering of the skin. These side effects are temporary and your skin will heal completely. We provide our patients detailed after-care instructions to help them manage their skin after the treatment
