Picosecond Laser Removal of Tattoos

Reaction after laser hair removal

The 800 nm, 100 ms semiconductor laser has a longer pulse width than the general 30 ms laser, and is equipped with a cooling head, so the possibility of pigmentation is less.

  1. Erythema after operation: there may be light erythema in the irradiation area, which generally subsides naturally after a few days;
  2. Peeling: some people have brown thin scabs on their local skin after treatment, which fall off naturally in about 1 week;
  3. Pigmentation: a few people may have light brown spots after treatment, which is a response of the skin to laser treatment. Because only a few people occur, it is related to the individual’s special constitution.

If pigmentation occurs, most of them can still recover after a few months. The 800 nm, 100 ms semiconductor laser has a longer pulse width than the general 30 ms laser, and is equipped with a cooling head, so the possibility of pigmentation is less.

  1. Scar: theoretically, this selective laser will not cause irreversible damage to the normal tissue around the hair follicle. However, if you have a special constitution, or do not pay attention to local cleaning and bacterial infection after operation, small scars may appear.
