We'll I got this tattoo about 5years ago. I liked it for a while and then I really started having second thoughts. I decided to get it removed and I found the picosure article on google . After researching it I figured it was probably the best decision for me. I started the removal process yesterday and have some swelling and a few blisters but nothing massive. I am not In any pain actually it feels like I want to itch it more than anything.. I slightly rub over the bandage to get rid of the itching sensation I'm having..I am hoping the orange comes out but the doctor was upfront with me about yellow being vet difficult but I'm keeping my fingers crossed ! Treatment hurt a tiny bit and I am a baby to pain so I read all these painful posts it's kinda scary.. It's like getting a tattoo just faster! My doctor freezes the foot with cool air and then does the removal which worked great! No pain today and this only day 2!
Day 3 of session 1
So I woke up this morning with a massive blister on my foot. I'm not in any pain but the blister obviously is a tender area. I have been waiting for this thing to pop but so far it just seems to be getting bigger which is concerning because I can not go barefoot to work... But I am hoping it will be gone soon.
Day 6 and feeling ok
So today day 6 after the laser treatment . My foot is still a little tender and the blister is slowly going away but it's red underneath it and it's concerning me a little . But do far so good and the treatment actually took a lot I mean a lot of ink out. I am really surprised at this point that I can see such a difference. Gives me hope it will be removed maybe quicker than expected!
I have made it too day 10!! Woohoo! So I can actually wear my heels again! My foot is healing nicely but god it itches so so bad! I have been putting Benadryl on it but I wake up out of a dead sleep with urge to scratch my foot! My blister is healing nicely and areas of the tattoo are brownish black( I'm guessing light scabbing not sure) but all in all I see a lot color change. But it does look like a lot of color has come back that looked almost gone earlier..
We'll now my skin is starting to peel. I have a lot of color gone and looks like I should have a lot more soon as it continues to heal. I know the yellow is going to be a issue with pico but there are other lasers that can take out the yellow right? I'm not really sure but if there is I will do it until the tat is gone. The itching has gone away thank god!
Slight color change
My foot is actually peeling today but I just want to say the colors don't look as faded a they did after the treatment ... Some of the color is back but that's to be expected since it's starts at the bottom and works to the top removing the ink. A lot of black is gone though:). I am hoping once this heals It will look a little lighter:)
