You’ll learn a lot during your complimentary consultation, including how many treatments are recommended, the length of your sessions, and when you can expect to start seeing results.
During your appointment, cold air is blown on to the treatment area to increase comfort. You’ll be given safety goggles, just like with any other type of laser or light therapy treatment. If you watch the process, you might notice that the tattoo can turn white for a few seconds as the laser is applied. After the treatment, a bandage is applied along with instructions for at-home care.
Following every appointment, it’s critical to avoid direct sun exposure on the treated area. Your esthetician will tell you exactly how long to avoid exposure, and recommend a medical-grade skin care regimen, including sunscreen, to help protect your skin as it heals.
