What is Tattoo Removal?

Tattoos are a popular form of self-expression, but sometimes our tastes and preferences change over time.

Price:

The cost of tattoo removal can vary widely depending on several factors, including the size of the tattoo, its location on your body, the colors used, and the number of sessions required for complete removal. As a result, it’s challenging to provide an exact price without evaluating your specific situation. At GGPS, we offer personalized consultations where our expert surgeons can assess your tattoo and provide you with an accurate estimate tailored to your unique needs.

 

Who is a good candidate?

Tattoo removal is suitable for individuals of various backgrounds, including those who wish to completely eliminate a tattoo or those who want to fade it for a cover-up.

Good candidates for tattoo removal typically meet the following criteria:

  1. Healthy Skin: Your skin should be in good overall health, free from infections, irritations, or other conditions that may interfere with the healing process.
  2. Realistic Expectations: It’s important to have realistic expectations about the tattoo removal process. While significant fading or complete removal is possible, complete removal cannot be guaranteed in every case.
  3. Commitment to the Process: Tattoo removal requires multiple sessions to achieve the desired results. Candidates should be prepared to commit to the recommended treatment plan and attend follow-up appointments. During your consultation at GGPS, our skilled surgeons will evaluate your individual circumstances and advise you on whether tattoo removal is a suitable option for you.

Procedure

Tattoo removal procedures typically involve the use of advanced laser technology. The laser emits short pulses of high-intensity light that target the tattoo ink while minimizing damage to the surrounding skin.

The laser breaks down the ink particles, allowing your body’s natural processes to gradually eliminate them over time. The length of each session depends on the size and complexity of the tattoo. Smaller tattoos may only require a few minutes, while larger ones can take up to an hour. The number of sessions needed varies from person to person, as it depends on factors such as the tattoo’s size, color, and depth.

At GGPS, we prioritize your comfort and safety during the procedure. Depending on your needs, we may apply a topical anesthetic or use a cooling device to minimize any discomfort.

Recovery

After each tattoo removal session, it’s normal to experience some temporary side effects, such as redness, swelling, and a mild burning sensation. These effects usually subside within a few hours or days. It’s crucial to follow the post-treatment instructions provided by our surgeons to ensure optimal healing and minimize the risk of complications.

To aid in the healing process, you may be advised to keep the treated area clean and protected, avoiding exposure to direct sunlight, and applying prescribed ointments or dressings. Our team will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.

Possible Complications 

While tattoo removal is generally safe, as with any medical procedure, there are potential risks and complications to consider. These may include:

  1. Skin Discoloration: In some cases, the treated area may become lighter or darker than the surrounding skin. This effect is usually temporary but may persist in rare instances.
  2. Scarring: Although uncommon, scarring is a possibility. Our experienced surgeons employ advanced techniques to minimize this risk, but individual factors can influence the outcome.
  3. Infection: While rare, infections can occur. Following post-treatment care instructions and keeping the treated area clean and protected can help reduce this risk.

It’s essential to choose a reputable and experienced plastic surgery center like GGPS to minimize the likelihood of complications and ensure the best possible outcome for your tattoo removal journey.
