2 Small Tattoos.....We'll See How This Goes...

I have 2 fairly small tattoos...a red bow on my ring finger (thankfully it wasn't his name!, I suppose i wasn't that stupid. I'v had it for about 7 years) and a VERY green three leaf clover...which I'v had for about 6 years. I'll be getting them done at the same time. I go in for my first treatment tomorrow...wish me luck!

1st Treatment

1st Treatment

Thought I posted this earlier but it didn't..
Went in for my first treatment on both tattoos today. My ringer finger was touched up once after I first got it..so I'm thinking that may be why it doesn't look as faded. But my inner wrist looks more faded and the lines are breaking apart. So fAr so good...

8 Days Later

Well... My ring finger looks the same, bummed out as that was the tattoo I needed removed the most. There is some line breakage but was hoping for more. My inner wrist developed the tiniest blister but popped a couple days later. This one semi hurts if something runs against it. It also has a weirdish dark brown tint in some areas, I'm thinking it might be scabs developing.

I was also kind of disappointed in the days after my second treatment, but about a month later I noticed that it had faded a bunch. Especially when I went back and looked at photos 5 weeks after my first session. The pico sure is great and judging from other posts, more effective than older lasers…… but I don't think its the miracle worker its been hyped to be. It takes time.

Do you know the settings of the laser? The green really got blasted away...

She said she put it right in the "middle" to see how my skin would react.

Don't get discouraged. They will continue to fade over the next few weeks.

Welcome to the community! Great results so far! How long will you be spacing out your treatments?

Thanks! I'll be going back in 6 weeks.

Did you find the treatment painful, and did you apply numbing cream?

Painful yes, but tolerable. I opted out of buying the $75 numbing cream at my consultation. But when I went in for my first treatment they put numbing cream on anyways as well as had me hold this tube of ice cold air on both tattoos off n on for 20 mins.

Yes it hurts doesn't it ( I am on session #9) They numb me 30 min pre treatment, but I can pay an extra $35 for extra strength numbing cream. I did once, but found it never made any difference. I find the ice really helps.

Hey Good Luck! I am also in the process of a similar sized tatt on my wrist, only mine is just black outline. Your first treatment looks great on that green :)
