Tattoo Removal Process - Farmington, MI

I began the process today of having a tattoo...

I began the process today of having a tattoo removed from my chest. It's about eight years old, 2x3", and contains black, red, light blue, and pink. The dermatologist said it should take 4-6 sessions at $250 ea. I had my first one today and attached are pics. I'll continue to update the progress as I have more sessions and complete the process.

Q-switched alexandrite this time, and yag next time.

Fading already?

Wishful thinking? But I think see fading on the left side already. A little scabby and red still, but not as tender.


aloha anewmimi, It looks like you are already having an amazing experience with the removal. I don't think it's wishful thinking, unless I am wishing also, but I do see some fading. his is encouraging for you and for all of us here on the forum. With each success, it gives many hope. Good luck with the fading, keep us posted so we can celebrate your ink's disappearance with you. aloha...k

Progress at two weeks

Funny now the pink ink, which used to seems subtle, is so noticeable now.
