Removing tattoos with the latest in laser technology for the removal of any type of design no matter how big or small and how long it has been there will give different results from one person to the next. Some will react very quickly and the design can easily disappear after only one or two treatments whereas others may need four or five sessions to completely get rid of all the ink. Prices for tattoo removal will vary depending on the size of the area on a persons body that needs to be treated and a consultation prior to treatment is necessary in all cases to give an exact cost.
Once the process of removing tattoos with laser technology has been carried out there is a two to three month period in most cases during which the skin returns to its normal pigmentation. The treatments can be a bit painful for the first few times as the bulk of the ink is removed but not really any more painful than having the design inked into the skin in the first place. The pain that is felt is only experienced during the treatment itself. There are certain cooling devices and creams that can be used for people that have extra sensitive skin or are worried about the pain they may feel during the procedure.
Most people feel a kind of sunburn type of feeling after the procedure for which moisturisers and creams can be used if necessary. Most discomfort subsides after a day or two and although it is safe to shower afterwards, scrubbing the area treated is strictly advised against. Apart from consultants at laser treatment clinics in South Africa most local doctors can assess and recommend a person to the nearest clinic that carries out and specialises in removing tattoos with laser technologies.
