Lasre with LightSheer Diode Laser - Glendale, CA
on 5 Mar 2012
Hi ya I completely urdsnetand where you're coming from it is scary stuff to contemplate esp if you're getting 6 done! I haven't had it done for tattoo removal, but I've had it done for other stuff and like tattoos I suppose, its way more sensitive in some areas than others. I find it especially sensitive over the bone, dunno why. In a weird way, it feels exactly like how you would imagine it, hot and zappy if that makes sense.Its a different kind of pain to anything I've had before but you can minimise the pain heaaaappss by using an ice pack on the area you're about to laser immediately before the laser goes on and after you're finished that spot. Take your own if your doctor doesn't provide you with one. It numbs the area and, because its a hot kind of pain, it takes the sting out of it. Also dose up on panadol and nurofen an hour before that helps majorly too.The good thing about it is, the pain doesn't last, by the time you leave you will have no sensitivity (provided you don't go in the sun!) and you do see results really quickly if you have pale skin, you will probably notice some change after your first treatment, I know I did.How come you're getting them removed? Why don't you just cover them up with a concealer? My boyfriend is covered in tatts and when he wants to hide them for work or whatever, we cover them with Thin Lizzy concealer and it works a treat cheaper too xxx good luck, you'll be fine, promise its faster than getting a tattoo at least! )
