If you have questions, we’re here to help. Dr. LeBeau recently answered frequently asked questions about laser tattoo removal. Each week, we’ll post some of the most common questions and answers about laser tattoo removal. Take a look at this week’s Q&A with Dr. LeBeau:

Will I experience redness after a tattoo removal session?
Redness (erythema) following laser tattoo removal is not uncommon. I would expect that you see continued resolution of the erythema without any intervention. As always, I recommend you return to your provider for an examination of the site and further reassurance.

How many laser sessions will it take to make my tattoo light enough to cover up with make up?
You should expect good results if seen by an experienced provider using a quality Q-switched laser. You may begin treatments as soon as the site is completely healed but an accurate estimate of the number of treatment sessions required can only be given after an examination and further history obtained by your provider.

How many sessions will I need to remove a small black tattoo?
Once your tattoo is evaluated and your provider has elicited the appropriate history of the tattoo, he or she should be able to give you an estimate of the number of treatments required for clearance of the tattoo ink. Variables such as the density and quality of the ink, layering and scarring in the area are questions that will need to be further elucidated before an accurate estimate could be given.

I regret my tattoo. What can I do?
You are not alone as tattoo regret is actually quite common.  Luckily, your tattoo should be able to be cleared very successfully.  I recommend you find an experienced provider in your area who uses a quality Q-switched laser to have a consultation for laser tattoo removal.
