Does Laser Tattoo Removal Scar?
One of the most common questions we are asked about laser tattoo removal is: “Will I have tattoo removal scars?” Thanks to our state-of-the-art Picoway Laser and highly trained technicians, the answer is almost always no.
The Picoway Laser delivers energy in ultra-short pulses measured in picoseconds, which is one trillionth of a second. It’s designed specifically for tattoo removal, which vastly reduces the chance of scarring. The laser is directed at the tattooed area, so it doesn’t harm the outer layer of skin.
Highly Trained Technicians
New Life Laser’s technicians match the Picoway Laser settings to your skin type so that you get maximum results without tattoo removal scars. It’s critical to go to a laser treatment center with trained technicians. If the laser operator makes a mistake or sets the laser too high, scarring can happen.
Technicians must also receive training on how the laser affects the skin. The laser can cause skin reactions, including textural changes to the skin after healing, in less than 2% of cases. A patch test should be used on large tattoos to assess the risk of a skin reaction. Redness, swelling and a white “crust” are common after laser tattoo treatments. Blistering may also occur as the body heals. These reactions are normal and do not lead to tattoo removal scars.
Scarring can happen with laser tattoo removal, but experienced technicians and state-of-the-art lasers like the Picoway Laser significantly reduce the possibility.
