Skin numbing for laser tattoo removal requires an effective topical anesthetic. This is a very painful procedure.
While getting a tattoo was very popular in the 1990’s, and still is, it is becoming ever more popular to get them removed once the years pass and dissatisfaction sets in. In fact, one in seven people express misgivings about their tattoos according to a Bloomberg article. A Harris Poll claims that one in five U.S. adults has a tattoo while a study in the U.K. says 37% of “people with inked skin regretted it after about 14 years.”
In in 2013, ASDS dermatologists performed nearly 96,000 laser/light/energy-based tattoo removal procedures, up from 63,000 in 2012. Considering how popular tattoos were in the ’90s and 2000s, that number only stands to grow.
One thing is certain, laser tattoo removal HURTS! This next short excerpt is from a blogger, which is related to the pain from this procedure,
” The pain factor is the one that makes me wonder how anyone with a large tattoo would ever consider getting it removed. I have had numerous doctors and RNs tell me that my threshold for pain is almost scary. Examples: I fractured my spine and didn’t realize I needed to go to a doctor for seven weeks, and I lasered my entire bikini area (and legs and underarms) without ever using numbing cream…and kind of enjoyed the way it felt.
Tattoo removal though? IT HURTS. Sure, it hurts less as the sessions go on, but there’s a reason they give you stress balls to hold. When demonstrating how the laser works when it hits your skin (creating a small welt), a tattoo removal specialist says, “That’s called frosting, which is a reaction of the laser smashing into your skin. It’s excruciating. Some people just say, ‘I can’t do anymore.'”
I never quit, but I definitely dropped a few F-bombs in the earlier sessions. The pain, though, is a hard one to describe. I guess it feels like needles stabbing into your skin while being branded like a cow while rubber bands are viciously snapped onto the wound again and again and again. Oh, and that’s with numbing cream.”
This is only one of an endless number of intense pain related comment those who have had these procedures performed on them have reported. For this reason it is imperative anyone undergoing these painful procedures strongly consider the use of an appropriately effective cream for skin numbing for laser tattoo removal. Skin numbing for laser tattoo removal may be the only thing that allows a patient to be able to weather this storm.
