The trained staff and state-of-the-art equipment at Vanish Clinic help ensure that tattoo removal doesn't harm your skin.
If you are worried you might get skin scarring, marks, or blisters from your tattoo removal, then keep reading. We are going to help you establish realistic expectations for post-tattoo removal skin.
What causes scarring after a tattoo removal procedure?
Factors such as the individual's health, the staff's expertise, the equipment used, and post-treatment care may result in scarring. Here are some factors that may affect tattoo removal before and after results:
The health of an individual:
If your body produces too many Keloids, it is easier for your skin to develop scars. Therefore, we at Vanish Clinic encourage our customers to share their medical history before the procedure. Knowing a person's medical history helps us reduce the risk of complications such as skin damage.
Skin scars resulting from tattoo removal are often caused by excess heat. An inexperienced technician can end up applying too much heat to a tattoo, damaging the skin. So by choosing to get your tattoo removed by our expert staff, you can minimize your risk of scarring.
Scarring resulting from the tattoo itself:
Tattoos do a great job at hiding any scars that may have resulted when a person got the tattoos. However, these scars may become more visible once the tattoo is removed. So if you had scarring during the tattooing, you should expect it to stay there once it is gone.
Non-laser tattoo removal:
If you try to remove your tattoo using a non-laser procedure, you are much more likely to get scars. There are topical substances that claim to remove tattoos. However, these substances don't target just the tattoo ink. They can penetrate deeper and damage the skin, resulting in scars.
