I have been reading all your posts about your tattoo removal processes and I decided to give it a try myself. I have a wrist tattoo which is blue, green and yellow and of course black. The rose is not bad looking I just really hate having anything on my skin, especially in such a visible place. The rose tattoo is on a scar after removing my previous tattoo (which was in the same place-poor skin ;( ) with laser CO2 -worst laser for tattoo removal ever! I was left with a scar in a shape of a tattoo ;( I really hated it so I decided two years after that I need to cover this scar with another tattoo...- again worst mistake ever! Turns out I hate tattoos on myself although I love it on other people.
In Poland there is no Picosure laser yet, so I decided to do the procedure with laser Q-Switch SINON, which is only one in Poland in WROCLAW and I live 5 hours away from this place ;( But yesterday with my girlfriend we drove there 5 hours and I had my first treatment with an experienced doctor. They have 20 years of experience with tattoo removal with Sinon laser and they combine the treatments with laser Fraxel eCO2 and with a spacial Lamp that regenerates the skin quicker. So I basically had 3 treatments on a one place.
Fist of all, It was sooooooooooo painful with laer tattoo removal that the doctor had to make a break every 10 seconds! The treatment was really fast about 2-3 minutes (because of my pain!) It is really painful procedure and for the next time my doctor gave me a special cream which will ease the pain-hopefully ;)
After that I had a treatment with laser eCO2 fraxel which helps skin rebuilt and unfortunatelly leaves small spots (which are visible on my pictures) in red like small holes in skin. It lasted for about 1 minute
Then I had a treatment (which was no pain at all) with a lamp, I lied down with my wrist under this lamp and i stayed like this for about 10 minutes.
Later on, the nurse came and applied on the place of removal sea buckthorn oil, and made a wound dressing. It was all.
I was advised to make such a dressing every day with this oil after bath for about two weeks as the place will be completely cured. And the most important thing to ALL OF YOU! The bigger the space between treatments the better and after your tattoo is healed you need to massage this place every day with a scratchy sponge- the doc. said that it helps to remove ink in much more amount! Did you guys know about it? She said it from her experience... wow! I will definiatelly do it!
Next appointment I will have in two months so now I need to take care of this place.
But today I can see big change in blue! and in some places the ink is completelly gone! ;)
I am really glad about it but we will see I am trying to stay not too overwhealmed so than I can't be disappointed. But I hope it will disappear.
It's a long process and takes much time and patience!
I want to thank you all guys for your bravery and reviews which made me really positive and strong about my decision!
My tat is still hot as hell when I touch it!
I add some pictures and the blue has reacted amazing! What do you think?
And the cost was 300 PLN which is approximately 100 $
I was actually late for the visit almost an hour but hopefully I made it and had a visit ;)
