What does the treatment feel like?
The Alex TriVantage is less painful than other treatment options. The degree of discomfort varies with each person, depending on his or her pain threshold. In most cases, depending on the nature and location of the tattoo or spot, your practitioner will recommend a topical anesthetic.
What precautions should I take throughout this process?
Immediately following treatment, cold or cool compresses may be applied to soothe the treated area. A topical antibiotic ointment may be recommended. In the first few days, take care to avoid scrubbing the area or using abrasive skin cleansers. A non-stick dressing may help prevent abrasion, and sunblock that has been approved by your practitioner may also be recommended.
How many treatments will I require?
The effectiveness of the laser depends on the age, location, depth and type of tattoo or spot, as well as the composition of the spot. Smaller tattoos and spots will require fewer laser pulses, while larger ones will require more. All tattoos will require additional treatments for optimal results.
Are treatments safe, and are there any side effects?
We treat the tattoo or spot while leaving surrounding skin undamaged, making it safer than non-laser options. After treatments, patients will experience temporary discoloration or reddening of the skin around the treatment site. Some patients may also experience a temporary lightening or darkening of the skin for a few months following treatment. The skin will typically resolve to normal pigmentation color. It is important to follow your practitioner’s recommendations for proper post-treatment skin care.
Are treatments covered by insurance?
