It is very important for our patients to be aware of potential problems with laser tattoo removal or laser hair removal. It is important to remember that for laser tattoo removal, the laser targets the ink pigments in the skin. For laser hair removal, it targets the melanin (dark pigment) in the hair follicle. Anything that interferes with this can either reduce efficacy of treatment or cause problems.
Although laser treatments are safe and effective, there are certain things that must be observed. The most important thing to remember is to stay out of the sun before and after treatments. If someone’s skin is exposed to the sun before treatment, he/she will develop a tan. Tanning occurs when the melanocytes of the skin produce melanin. If there is extra melanin in the skin before laser treatment, the laser’s beam will not be as effective in targeting the melanin in the hair or the tattoo ink. After laser treatment, the skin is very sensitive. Exposure of skin to excessive sunlight after laser treatment may lead to sunburn, irritation or blistering. The best way to prevent this from happening is to cover the treated area and/or apply sunscreen of SPF30 or greater.
