Questions you may have about Laser Tattoo Removal in Winnipeg
Why Choose Dr. Minuk’s Laser Tattoo Removal Centre in Winnipeg?
We are specialists and have performed thousands of laser tattoo removal treatments over the past 17 years. We have two advanced laser systems that work on all types of tattoos and skin types. We understand the importance of proper skin treatment directed by a dermatologist like Dr. Minuk and caution you from trusting, non-medical tattoo removal services that can cause more damage.
Is Treatment Painful?
The laser emits light in very short flashes of light called pulses. The impact of the energy from the powerful pulse of light is similar to the snap of a thin rubber band or specks of hot bacon grease on the skin. You may experience mild discomfort during a treatment session but the large majority of all patients do not require anesthesia.
How Many Laser Treatments in Winnipeg Will it Take to Remove the Tattoo?
On the average, professional multi-coloured tattoos require 6-10 treatments, while amateur tattoos usually require 3-5 treatments, all spaced approximately one month apart. The number of treatments depends on the amount and type of ink used and the depth of the ink in the skin.
Will The Tattoo Completely Disappear?
In many cases yes. Greater than 95 percent fading of the tattoo may be accomplished. Older tattoos and those of India ink, black blue and red colors usually fade the most. However, it is very important to know that over 100 tattoo inks are in use worldwide today, none of which are regulated by the FDA. Not knowing which tattoo ink, how deep or how much was used, makes it impossible for us to predict the degree of removal on any given tattoo.
What Type of Laser Post-treatment Care is Necessary?
An antibacterial ointment and a dressing will be applied to the area. The treated area should be kept clean with continued application of any ointment given to you by our Centre. A shower can be taken the next day, although the treated area should not be scrubbed.
