At Beautologie we are excited to offer one of Bakersfield first truly dedicated Tattoo removal devices, the Q-switched Nd-Yag laser. Every day, we see patients from every walk of life that have second thoughts about their tattoos. What once seemed like a good idea just doesn't fit your new image and you wish it would go away. Now, we can make your wish come true. Using the Q-switched Nd-Yag laser we can safely remove your tattoo.
HOW ARE THE TATTOOS REMOVED?
Anyone who has leg veins that are less than 3mm in size, that understands the risks, costs and time nec-essary to acheive the full benefit of the procedure, and who has realistic expectations of the ultimate outcome. f your veins are larger than 5mm you are not a good candidate. If you have an underlying problem with the valves in your veins, you are not a good candidate. This can be determined during your consultation. If you are pregnant, take aspirin or other blood thinning medications, or have a medical condition that prevents your blood from clotting properly, you should not have this procedure.
Multiple treatments are generally required to obtain your desired results.
WHAT WILL MY SKIN LOOK LIKE AFTER THE TREATMENT?
Right after each session your skin may be reddish or blister. Also there may be minimal swelling which will resolve over a couple days. Maximum results will be seen in 6-8 weeks at which time we would perform the next session.
WHAT DOES THE LASER FEEL LIKE?
Some patients say it feels like a slight sting like the snap of a rubber band or a sunburn like sensation. A topical numbing cream applied prior to treatment will lessen this sensation.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?
The number of treatments required for maximum improvement depends on the size, location, depth, and color of your tattoo. Treatments are generally 6-8 weeks apart and sessions generally last 15-20 minutes. Patients will generally start to appreciate lightening of the tattoo just after the first session however 5-15 treatments are generally required for optimum results.
