Winter Park Tattoo Removal: Understanding the Tattoo Removal Process

Apr 3, 2023 | Tattoo Removal

Winter Park Tattoo Removal is a top-rated tattoo removal clinic in the Winter Park area. Our clinic specializes in laser tattoo removal and offers cutting-edge technology, including the use of the PFD patch.

In this article, we will discuss what clients can expect during and after the tattoo removal process, as well as the number of sessions typically required for complete removal.


Laser Tattoo Removal: How It Works?

The laser tattoo removal process at Winter Park Tattoo Removal works by breaking down the pigmented colors in the tattoo ink with high-intensity light beams. The black pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths, making it the easiest color to treat.

However, other colored pigments can only be treated with selected lasers. The light energy emitted by the laser penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the tattoo ink, breaking the ink particles apart. These particles are then removed from the body through a natural filtration system.


What to Expect During Each Tattoo Removal Session?

Clients should be prepared for the following during each tattoo removal session at Winter Park Tattoo Removal:

  1. Wearing eye protection shields.
  2. Skin reaction tests to determine the most effective laser energy.
  3. Passing intense light through the top layer of skin, which is absorbed by the tattoo pigments.
  4. Potential pain during the procedure, with some clients requiring anesthesia depending on the tattoo’s location.
  5. Applying an ice pack after treatment to soothe the treated area.
  6. Using an antibiotic cream or bandage to protect the area from infection.
  7. Covering the treated area or applying sunblock when exposed to sunlight.

Smaller tattoos require fewer laser pulses, while larger tattoos need more pulses for removal. In some cases, more than one treatment is necessary to eliminate the tattoo completely. After each session, the tattoo will progressively become lighter.


Introducing the DESCRIBE® PFD Patch

At Winter Park Tattoo Removal, we recommend using the DESCRIBE® PFD patch alongside our laser treatments to speed up the tattoo removal process. The patch contains a compound called perfluorodecalin (PFD), which helps dissolve gases and allows oxygen to enter the skin. This reduces laser-induced whitening, enabling multiple passes with the laser and accelerating the removal process.

Additionally, the patch is made from silicone, which absorbs excess heat and protects the skin from thermal injury. The PFD patch can also reduce the overall number of laser tattoo removal treatments required for your case.
