When a patient is receiving Laser Tattoo Removal, there is a possibility of scarring. A number of reasons can contribute to why a patient may develop a scar.
One reason can be that a patient had previous scarring from when they initially received their tattoo. Often patients, who have had their tattoos removed, noticed scars that were due to problems or complications that happened during the actual tattooing process. Laser Tattoo Removal can remove tattoo ink but it cannot remove previous scar tissue, because of this previous scars may be noticeable.
Another factor that can influence whether a patient will scar or not, is how well a patient follows their Laser Tattoo Removal aftercare.
After a Laser Tattoo Removal treatment, the treated skin may blister, itch, become red or scab. This is all completely normal. The body does need to heal naturally. Improper care can lead to infection in the treated area.
If a patient picks or scratches the treated area, this can cause the scabs to be removed prematurely, which in turn will force the body to form new scabs most likely leaving scars behind.
By keeping the treated area clean, dry and out of the sun throughout the Laser Tattoo Removal process this will avoid any burns and scars forming. If a patient must be outdoors then it is vital they apply sunblock with zinc religiously.
A final factor that can cause scarring is aggressive Laser Tattoo Removal treatments from inexperienced technicians. An experienced technician will ensure that proper Laser Tattoo Removal settings are adhered to and ample time is left between sessions so that the body can heal properly. This will minimize the potential for any scarring.
It is important to note that removing a Tattoo does take time and patience is also needed.
Although there is a small chance of scarring a patient can be proactive, working alongside their technician by following proper after care to safeguard against potential scarring.
