I have a butterfly tattoo on my abdomen that I got when I turned 18, it was kind of impulse and now I hate it, so I'm having it lasered off and I'm just hoping that I don't get any scaring. I would hate to have a huge scar instead of a tattoo! I purchased a Groupon since I could not afford to pay full price. I am posting this about a month after my first session.
Although they gave me an after care sheet to take home and it explained a lot, there are still a lot of things that I had questions on that were not on the sheet, but I called an the laser technician answered all my questions. Like I said before, I am afraid of scarring so I wanted to take good care of the area. The area sure does itch! And pardon the pics, I took them myself : )
I have been applying Neosporin to the area about twice daily, the laser technician told me to "keep the area moist", I think I was doing too good of a job though because it took a long time to heel. I kept it covered for the first two weeks or so because of the area it is in, my jeans would rub against it and the skin could just scab off. You should let it "breath" a little at nights when you are at home, not when you are sleeping because I sleep on my stomach and that would not be good.
