Several motivations can influence the decision to change the look of a tattoo, to pale to cover with another or simply to erase. Nd YAG laser tattoo removal can do wonders for you. The operation is simple, the Nd YAG laser sends into the skin powerful pulses of light that are absorbed by the tattoo ink. The energy emitted warms it, causing it to burst into tiny particles. After treatment, the lymphatic system removes particles that are identified as foreign bodies.
The number of Nd YAG laser tattoo removal sessions is determined by several factors including the color and type of ink, the age of the tattoo and the health of the person being tattooed.

Immediately after treatment, it is normal to find that the treated area is red, swollen and sensitive. During the healing process, crust, blisters or even bruises may form on the treated area. All of this is part of the healing process, so it’s very important not to remove the scabs and let the blisters go away on their own.
Keep the treated area clean and dry throughout the healing process. Clean the area gently with soap and water and dry gently. Apply a thin layer of Polysporin 2 times a day for 3 days and cover with a sterile dressing. Subsequently, apply Vitamin E (brand Webber for healing) at least 2 times a day for a minimum of 2 weeks. The appearance of blisters is common and may occur within 8 hours of treatment. Do not worry, blisters heal very well and are part of the normal healing process. If they burst, continue to put Polysporin for at least 24 hours after bursting.
Apply cold compresses if necessary until 24 hours after treatment to reduce discomfort and inflammation. Take Tylenol or Advil if needed, but avoid aspirin (it may increase the risk of bleeding).
Do not scratch the crusts, this could lead to infection and scar formation. Shaving the treated area should be avoided until it is completely cured. Avoid exposing the treated area to pressure jets (such as a shower), bathing and whirlpool baths, going to the pool, or any other form of bathing, until all blisters and scabs are completely healed.
Exercise after treatment is generally safe, considering all other guidelines provided here. Apply a sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 25 on the treated area for the next 3 months or until it is completely cured. Do not wear makeup or moisturizer on the treated area until the crusts or blisters have completely disappeared.
