There is some discomfort associated with laser tattoo removal. A lot of people say it’s similar to being snapped with a rubber band. The good news is we have ways to manage the pain extremely effectively.
First and foremost, we use a machine called a zimmer. Now, a zimmer is a machine which blows freezing cold air onto the treatment area, before, during, and after treatment.
The end result is that you hardly feel it. We also have the option to applying a topical numbing cream and that in combination with the zimmer also can enhance the comfort level.
Overall, there is some discomfort associated with the treatment, but highly manageable using both the zimmer and the numbing cream.
It’s a quick treatment as well. So, it doesn’t take a lot of time and any sort of pain typically subsides immediately post treatment.
