Does laser tattoo removal on the legs and feet hurt?
While every person has a different pain tolerance our team is committed to making the laser tattoo removal process as comfortable as possible. With the legs and feet, especially around the ankles, it's normal to expect a little discomfort as these areas have a lot of nerve endings.
With laser tattoo removal on the lower extremities, it's especially important to minimize activity on your feet (standing, exercising, walking, etc.) for the first 12-24 hours after treatment. Doing so will minimize swelling and blistering and make your recovery much easier. It's important to note that because blood flow is not as strong in these areas that you may need more sessions.
Can laser tattoo removal on the legs and feet have lasting side effects?
Your Certified Licensed Laser Technician will give you an aftercare routine to follow, most patients experience no side effects when the instructions are adhered to. However, if you have a history of keloiding or scarring you may be at higher risk for scarring, but this is something your experienced laser technician will discuss with you.
It's very important that you stay off your feet and minimize activity after laser tattoo removal on the legs and feet as these areas have a higher risk of friction or knocking into things, which can disturb the skin or any blisters.
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.
