NLH Treatment webAllowing a laser near your skin – especially if it’s in a sensitive area – can seem like a daunting task. You may find yourself wondering if laser tattoo removal is worth the risk, especially if you’ve heard that laser tattoo removal can cause burns.

If you go to a trusted provider such as New Look Houston, which has been in business longer and is a reputable provider of services, you don’t need to be concerned about potential burns from lasers. However, burns from laser tattoo removal can happen if staff isn’t sufficiently trained or the wrong techniques are used. That’s why it’s important to chose your clinic carefully!

Be wary of any clinic that doesn’t own their equipment, provide detailed explanations of the procedure, or asks you to pay for the entire process upfront.

Laser tattoo removal can cause the skin to blister and treated skin should be treated carefully with proper after-care that includes gentle cleansing¬†and¬†moisturizing. However, skin will NOT burn if treated properly. Blisters are a natural part of the body’s healing process. Although they might be sensitive and take a week or more to heal completely, they are not cause for significant concern.

Another common side effect from the treatment is scabbing. Scabs can contain particles of tattoo ink. They should heal on their own within two weeks.

If you’re ready to consider removing your tattoo, call New Look Houston at 713-783-2000.
