As time passes, certain body art or tattoos can become undesirable. Luckily there are treatments available to permanently reduce the appearance of body art and/or tattoos. At Aponi Aesthetics, we use a Q Switch laser system to gently disperse and lighten the particles of ink, causing them to lighten and fade away.
Several treatments are recommended and results depend on:
- Color of the tattoo
- Type of ink used
- Age of the tattoo
What should be expected during the treatment?
A topical numbing cream is applied to the area to be treated for maximum comfort. The laser energy is deliver in a precise manner based on color and vividness of the tattoo. The treatment is rather quick, depending on the size of the area treated.
Is there any downtime?
After the laser treatment, the area will appear red and swollen. In some cases, the area becomes slightly bloody, but is completely normal and resolves quickly. Treatments are recommended every 4 to 6 weeks and can take up to 8-10 treatments to achieve the desired result.
We invite you to schedule a free, no obligation consultation to review the procedure in more detail and to receive a more accurate treatment plan recommendation. Call us today at 508-791-2900 or request an appointment online here through our site.
