Yes, the desired outcome would be to have a complete removal of the tattoo leaving behind very negligible halo in some cases.
Treatments are done keeping in mind patients utmost comfort. However, the sensation of the laser treatment does cause mild discomfort like a rubber band snapping against skin. Our Doctor’s apply skin numbing creams to make it easy for the patients.
At Heler, we use Lumenis M22 Q-Switched Nd:Yag for tattoo removal. It takes anywhere between 6-8 sessions of laser treatments each session spaced 3-4 weeks apart. Multicoloured and professional tattoos may require more numbers of sessions. We require a thorough consultation with our Dermatologist to understand the density and the kind of ink used.
Setting expectations clearly upfront allows for patients to be satisfied throughout the experience – rather than feeling misled.
At Heler we understand that for most patients, pricing is a factor in their decision. The Tattoo Removal service requires highly specialised equipments like the Lumenis M22 to remove tattoo.
The Total Treatment cost for tattoo removal depends upon the size of your tattoo and the total number of treatments required for removal. Since every situation is different it’s best to have a comprehensive consultation with the Dermatologist / Skin Specialist focussed on the value of the procedure & not what we charge.
