Is laser tattoo removal safe? Huntington, NY residents, often ask Dr. Roger Koreen. They also ask about the validity of tattoo removal success stories they see online. That’s because you typically only see two photos — before and after. The radical change makes it challenging for people to believe.
Yes, laser tattoo does work, says Dr. Koreen, but not how the pictures make it seem. A doctor can use a high-intensity light beam laser to break apart the paint pigments on and underneath your skin. Black ink is the most straightforward color to remove.
What the photos do not show is the entire process. It requires multiple treatments and many months to achieve breathtaking results. Each individual differs in the number of laser treatments needed, based upon the person’s age, tattoo colors, and tattoo size. The color of the individual’s skin also contributes to the number of visits required.
Laser tattoo removal remains the most effective and popular method of removing a tattoo. The side effects of the treatment are that you will have slight bruising, a tingling sensation similar to sunburn, tenderness, itching, and crusting over the area for days after the treatment. The ink that dissipates into your skin gets safely absorbed by your body.
PicoSure laser tattoo removal treatment is a newer option. It offers faster results in fewer treatment sessions. The laser is very mild on the skin and is considered safe with little chance of complications.

The photos you see online do represent real cases and actual treatment results. Although they only represent the beginning of the first session and the end of the last one, laser tattoo removal is an effective and optimal way to remove unwanted tattoos, as the pictures show.
