Laser tattoo removal: is it painful?
Jumping right into the subject – yes, it is painful. Some people might even say it is more painful than getting a tattoo. However, everyone has a different sensitivity, size, and color of the tattoo, therefore for everyone the experience might be slightly different.
Is there a way to reduce pain?
Local anesthetics such as creams and gels can reduce pain up 30-40%, however, make sure that you don’t have any allergies to the products applied on your skin.
Let your technician know about allergies you have as well as your pain sensitivity.
What pain actually feels like?
The most common pain comparison is that rubber band is constantly snapping against the skin. There also might be a pain or burning sensation after the procedure, so you should be cautious – aka no wearing tight close, taking hot showers, putting pressure on the burnt area etc.
