Tattoos are very popular amongst patients at any age. However when it comes to laser hair removal their location may be an obstacle that gets in the way of getting the hair free body you desire. But what can you do if you already have tattoos on the area that you’d like to laser? How to get laser hair removal safely done with tattoos?
How to get laser hair removal safely done with tattoos?
The answer is simple. You just have to avoid the area that is tattooed and also the surrounding skin to be safe. The pigment in the ink would attract the laser which could damage the tattoo. So best is to cover the tattoo completely and just leave 2-3 finger width around it without lasering the skin.
If you haven’t yet got your tattoo, I would suggest to do laser hair removal first, and once the hair is going, then do tattooing all over. As otherwise the area covered with tattoo would never be able to have laser treatment directly over, meaning shaving would be still required on those parts of your body.
What happens if the tattoo is treated with laser?
The laser will remove completely or permanently damage the tattoo, so definitely wouldn’t recommend to try under any circumstances.
