How does the laser work?
The tattoo pigment colors get broken with high-intensity light rays from the laser. As the skin comes in direct contact with intense heat, there are minor burns, swelling, frosting, blistering, and itching. The treated area turns white for some time, after which several patients develop scabs or blisters within a day. These can last for less than two weeks.
After scab separates the treated area looks pinkish as there is the loss of pigment. It is temporary. Within 6 to 8 weeks healing gets totally complete.
