Does laser tattoo removal hurt?

Since “does laser tattoo removal hurt?” is perhaps the most common question asked by our patients, we asked our Doctor to provide some medical insight…The pain of laser tattoo removal is similar to getting a tattoo applied, a stinging and burning sensation. It has been compared to the feeling of a rubber band snapping or your skin or even the popping of bacon grease (however there are no yummy smells involved.)  The big difference is that removal is achieved in a matter of minutes, not hours and we are generally older, wiser and not under the influence of, ahem…shall we say liquid

Improved pain control for laser tattoo removal

Tattoo removal has generally been considered a quick, but painful procedure. Commonly used analogies liken it to the pain of getting a tattoo, a rubber band snapping on the skin, or even the sensation of having bacon grease splattered on your skin. While the use of a cooling machine and vigorous application of ice can “take the edge off,” fear of a painful experience prevents many from getting laser tattoo removal.

Inkfree, MD is thrilled to announce the addition of Pliaglis to our armamentarium of pain control. Pliaglis Cream is the first and only FDA-approved topical anesthetic that combines the highest concentrations of two powerful ingredients, lidocaine and tetracaine, for fast onset and lasting effect. Additionally, the pain relief lasts for up to 5 hours afterwards. This highly effective topical anesthetic can only be dispensed by a licensed medical practitioner which is why you should seek out a physician owned and operated laser tattoo removal clinic.
