What happens to the
skin after tattoo removal?

The use of advanced laser technology ensures the least amount of trauma to the skin during tattoo removal.

This is explained by the fact that the laser beam is tuned to a certain wave and has a destructive effect only on the pigment. At the same time, the cells of the dermis remain intact. But laser radiation is accompanied by a high temperature, because of which such reactions are possible:

  • Redness on the skin.
  • Edema.
  • Pain and burning sensation.

Such symptoms after a tattoo removal session are considered normal and pass within 1-3 days. Since each person has individual skin sensitivity, there may be more serious consequences from the thermal impact of laser. For example, in people with increased sensitivity, blisters may appear after 1-3 hours after the procedure. Inside they are filled with transparent liquid. In such a situation, the main thing is competent skin care after tattoo removal. In no case should blisters comb, remove or pierce with a needle, as the risk of infection in the resulting wound increases.

If you take care of the skin properly and regularly until full healing, then after a few weeks the skin will completely heal without scars or inflammatory processes.
