Laser Tattoo Removal Austin
Moving on can be hard to do when the past is a tattoo etched into your skin. What was once thought to be expressive and edgy may become unsightly and embarrassing today. At Devenir Aesthetics in Austin, we offer an effective and safe solution to remove unwanted tattoos. Devenir is the only clinic in Central Texas to offer the very latest in laser tattoo removal technology, Fotona by Lumenis Aesthetic.
How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?
Using the Fotona tattoo removal laser, quick pulses of light are applied to the skin. With each pulse, the ink in the skin is broken up into tiny particles which are then reabsorbed by the body. Prior to treatment, a topical numbing agent is applied to the treatment area to diminish possible discomfort.
Are Treatments Safe?
The Fotona laser is safe and has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of tattoo removal in Austin.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Depending mainly on the colors, size, and type of ink used, tattoo removal Austin can take at the very minimum 5 treatments. Some colors, such as red and black, are easier to remove, as opposed to green and yellow, which are more difficult. On average, most tattoos take 10-12 sessions within a given period to effectively remove. Sessions must be done at the frequency your provider has instructed in order to be effective.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Serious side effects are rare. Immediately following treatment, the area may appear red. This is a normal response that may last 24-48 hours on average. In rare instances, temporary swelling and/or blistering may occur.
Laser Tattoo Removal For Tattoo Revisions
Laser tattoo removal is an ideal place to start before getting a tattoo revision. Not only can it provide a “clean slate” for the artist to work with, but it can also help to eliminate any chance of scarring or having any other reactions. It is important to remember that several tattoo removal treatments may be required prior to getting your tattoo revised.
