Does laser tattoo removal on the arms and hands hurt?
The most common question we get is: will it hurt?
Every person's pain tolerance differs, but you'll be happy to know that laser tattoo removal on the arms generally is not painful.
However, removing tattoos on the hands may be a little unpleasant due to the number of nerve endings in this area. Our team is expertly trained in making the removal process as comfortable as possible.
The number of sessions needed will vary based on factors such as size, age, and color of the ink but typically tattoos on the extremities require more sessions as the blood flow to these areas is not as strong.
Can laser tattoo removal on the arms and hands have lasting side effects?
Following the aftercare routine that your laser technician gives you is very important and typically we do not see patients suffer from scarring or lasting side effects. With that being said, there are some special considerations. If you have a history of scarring or keloiding, you could have a higher risk, but if you correctly follow the care routine you should be okay.
Additionally, when looking after your arms and hands it's extra important to protect the skin from friction or knocking into things as this can disturb any blistering or skin sensitivity. Try to elevate your arm above your heart to prevent swelling and make the recovery process more comfortable.
Our team of Certified Licensed Laser Technicians will guide you through the process, what to expect, and what you should do to keep your skin safe and healthy.
