DOES LASER REMOVAL HURT?
I have heard in the past that the tattoo removal process is worse, than having the tattoo, yet most of my clients say that the sensation is comparable. Common description includes the sensation of a rubber band snapping against your skin. Of course, the pain is uncomfortable, but it is bearable.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Costs at Faded Ink are reasonable, but I would need to see the tattoo during the FREE consulation to be able to provide costs
WILL IT SCAR?
Scarring is rare and the aftercare is very important. It also depends if any scarring was present from when the tattoo was originally done. It is very rare though
WILL MY TATTOO COMPLETELY FADE?
Complete removal is possible, but it all depends on several factors, such as age, density, colour, ink depth/type and position of the tattoo. We also need to consider your immune system and how well it takes, everyone is different
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL IT TAKE?
Every tattoo is different, therefore its hard to put an exact number of sessions each client will need, we also need to consider all the different factors. On average a small/medium tattoo can take anywhere between 6-10 sessions where as a colour tattoo can take a little longer.
AFTER MY SESSION THE AREA IS FEELING HOT, SORE & SWOLLEN, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
This is quite normal, apply a cold compress to minimise the feeling you are receiving.
I FEEL THE AREA IS NOT HEALING PROPERLY, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
If you are concerned in anyway or just need some advice and guidance then please contact the studio
HOW SHOULD I CARE FOR THE AREA IN BETWEEN MY LASER REMOVAL SESSIONS?
Here are some great tips to help the recovery period, aftercare is important:
Keep the area clean using only soap and water and pat dry not rub
As hard as it maybe, do not pick the scab or allow it to be scraped as this can cause infection and possibly scarring
Do not shave the area until fully healed
Avoid prolonged contact with water, swimming and long soaks in the tub, as this will soften the scab
Wear sunblock on the area for approx. 3 months after
Do not wear make up on the area until fully healed
Try not wear any tight clothing over the area as this can cause overheating and irritation, which can result in blistering and scarring
