Does laser tattoo removal cause scarring?

What you need to know about laser removal and scarring


The chance of your laser tattoo removal causing scarring is close to zero. Q-Switched lasers are a safe method of removal and there is little chance of scarring if you follow the aftercare instructions we provide.


How does laser removal work?


Q-Switch laser removal is one of the safest, most effective ways to remove your tattoo. Learning how it works will help you understand the importance of proper skin care after your session.


During laser removal a high-powered laser passes over the ink in your tattoo and shatters the ink into tiny particles. Your immune system will then flush these particles out of your body naturally.




Because a laser passes over the skin, this can cause blistering or even slight bleeding. As long as you treat your skin as you would any other burn or blister, then this process shouldn't leave a scar. 


Take care of your skin - leave any blistering skin alone while it heals. Don't pop blisters or pick scabs as your skin heals. Also make sure to protect your skin from excessive sunlight and use sunscreen during the removal process.


Keep it simple


As long as you follow simple, basic skincare after a removal session, then your skin will heal naturally, and you'll be ready for your next session! The faster you heal, the faster your tattoo will be removed. Contact us today and get your tattoo removal going!
