Tattoo Removal Q & A

tattoo removal

What is laser tattoo removal?

Tattoo removal available at Favia MediSpa uses cutting-edge laser technology to break up pigments from tattoos and disperse them, making unwanted tattoos fade away over time. The technology is highly effective and without any pain or invasive procedures. 

What are the benefits of tattoo removal?

Some of the main benefits you can expect with tattoo removal at Favia MediSpa include:

  • Clear, healthier-looking skin
  • Self-confidence 
  • Even-toned skin
  • No pain
  • No cutting
  • No downtime

Laser tattoo removal removes tattoos of all different sizes, shapes, and colors. Multiple treatments can give you the dramatic results you desire.  

Is laser tattoo removal the right procedure for me?

Your Favia MediSpa provider lets you know if you’re a candidate for tattoo removal after discussing your medical history, completing a physical exam if needed, and evaluating areas of your skin containing tattoo pigment. 

They let you know what to expect during each procedure and discuss your desired outcome, before tailoring a tattoo removal treatment that’s best for you.

What should I expect during laser tattoo removal?

Your Favia MediSpa specialist uses local anesthesia to numb the treatment area and eliminate any discomfort. You relax on a comfortable exam table or reclining chair and wear specialized glasses to protect your eyes from the laser’s effects.

Using a handheld device, your provider applies laser energy to your skin to disperse pigments and reduce their appearance. The length of time each treatment lasts depends on the size of the treatment area.

What happens after laser tattoo removal?

There's no downtime after tattoo removal sessions so that you can get back to your normal daily activities right away. Expect some temporary skin redness, swelling, tenderness, and sometimes blistering. 

Apply ointment to treated skin as directed by your provider, and protect your skin from the sun. Multiple laser tattoo removal sessions spaced apart over time give you the best results.
