Does Laser Tattoo Removal Hurt?

While you will feel impact of the laser as it breaks up the ink, the discomfort level is individual to the person and the area being treated. Laser treatments are usually described as a rubber band snapping against the skin. Some say the discomfort is no worse than the original tattoo process and much less intense. Unlike the original tattoo application, the laser treatment is usually complete in under 10 minutes. 

Does it have to hurt?

At Redding Laser Tattoo Removal, we believe that suffering is unnecessary and preventable. We use a Zimmer Chiller during every laser treatment. The cold air naturally reduces the intensity of the pain response, by slowing blood flow and nerve conduction. It also has the added advantage of blanching the skin and increasing the color contrast between the skin color and tattoo ink.  Many people say that the cooled skin is enough to minimize the sting. We also cool the skin with icepacks, as needed. 

For those who need more comfort, taking an Advil, or a non-aspirin pain reliever, 1 hour before the treatment can be helpful. We also offer specialty compounded prescription numbing cream. It is applied to the tattoo 30 minutes before your treatment. While the numbing cream can interfere with the laser and reduce its effectiveness, it is my experience that the cream is effective in dulling the laser's sting.  

For those who have special needs, complete pain blocks can be prearranged with our pain specialist.

  4. I have gone through a laser tattoo removal (in Montreal and California) and I would absolutely NOT recommend anyone to do it...

    It has messed me up FOR LIFE both physically and financially!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE HEED MY WARNING!!!!

    If you go through the usual laser removal methods. Which I do not recommend, not only that it will leave marks on your skin, so in reality, the tattoo will still be kind of visible if you know where to look. It is a very long process. And to be honest, very costly.

    I had a hook up from a friend, and I have only paid 4000$ for 12 sessions. Which is a whole lot of money, but if I had to pay the full price, I would spend at least 6500$.

    This also depends on where do you live, but in general, it is costly. And it took ages to finish, they have recommended me at max one session per month. So I have ended up getting rid of this tattoo for more than a year and a half, and to be honest, the tattoo was quite small. It was significant as a can of coke. If I had a more massive tattoo, it would take a longer time and more session, which means more $$$$.

    Laserless tattoo removal is where it's at.

    Unfortunately, at the time of my tattoo removal, I did not know this, I know about this only thanks to my brother, which bought this program last year.

    This has a few pros and few cons. It works, and he was able to do it himself. Well, you have to do it yourself or ask someone to do it for you.

    It is a long process, but I believe he has spent just a couple bucks on this ebook. It is definitely way cheaper than any tattoo removal cream I have bought.

    And how long it will take to remove the tattoo with this method varies from person to person, their age and their skin. My brother got rid of his tattoo with in four months, I believe, and his tattoo was at least twice as big mine was.

    I am not sure, if he were supposed to do something to treat it every day, I would have to call him about it, but hey it works and out of all of these options it is the cheapest one and yes you might spend more time on this than on laser removal, but your tattoo will be gone sooner than if you would go with the laser removal option.

    To be honest, I do not know that many things about this, but I just did a quick google search and here is a great review of it:

    To my knowledge, this is the only 100% natural option out here in 2019 to get rid of your tattoos.

    I really hope this helps someone out there.

    Good luck!
