Tattoo Removal- Now with Less Boring Supplement Info and More Anonymity! - United States

I feel like we already know each other. I had a review before, but someone I know from work was talking about realself and I got sketched and removed all my pics and closed my account. They weren't talking about tattoo removal, but I still don't feel like talking to anyone at work about it ever. Anyway, I'm back and still bad at taking light/skin consistent photos, but I think it's important to share info, support, and progress here...all for the tattoo removal cause. As lame as it sounds, I genuinely missed some of you. Feel free to PM me. May your ink and regret always be fading.

I have had 2 treatments with a space of 8 weeks at the time of this review. I have another scheduled 8 weeks from my last as long as I'm completely healed and skin texture restored. I will wait longer if need be.

Thanks xraygirl, I'm being treated with a Qswitch laser.

10 weeks after 2nd treatment

I'm really looking forward to my next treatment in about 2 weeks. I didn't plan to have 12 weeks in between treatments but I'm trying to be really patient and I want to try to avoid alot of textural changes or scarring. It was really annoying trying to keep it out of the sun at the beach, so next year no matter what state of removal, I'm taking a break through summer. I'll post after my next treatment, until then wishing everyone well.

Had my third treatment today. It had been 12 weeks since my last so I was looking forward to it. I will update in a few weeks after recovery.

letting your treatment area "breathe"...

I would never suggest anyone do anything different then advised by their doctor or tech, I WOULD suggest that you question things for yourself when most aftercare suggestions goes against scar prevention (possibly causing more ink retention) and is now considered a myth by specialists. Please feel free to google the phrase "mayoclinic moist wound healing promoted" or "let wound breathe myth nytimes" happy fading!
