What Is Tattoo Removal?

Tattooing is increasing all over the globe. Nowadays, face tattoos are also gaining more and more attention. As mentioned previously, tattoo removal is a method of attempting to fade the tattoo and erase its essence using various methods. There are various methods for tattoo removal. The major methods of tattoo removal are;

  • Where a laser device blurs the tattoo.
  • Surgical removal of tattoos for small tattoos which surgically removes layers of skin.
  • Dermabrasion tattoo removal where a dermabrasion device rubs the on the skin.
  • Tattoo removal with skin products. Various products such as creams and scrubs can remove tattoos when a person does not want or cannot undergo laser treatment. This method never removes the tattoo and replaces it, but it helps to make it lighter. The use of these creams must be under the supervision of a physician.

The first three methods are performed by the doctor and in the fourth method the doctor prescribes the medicine and the person uses them at home; The use of skin products is not often recommended because it has low effectiveness and can cause severe side effects such as skin inflammation. In the following, we will follow the steps of each of these methods separately.

Laser Tattoo Removal

The best and easiest way to get a tattoo is a laser. Laser treatment requires several sessions for the applicant to get what he wants. The number of sessions varies from person to person but it is usually between 8 and 12 sessions. Take note that the laser removal does not fully eliminate the tattoo, but fades it to a notable extent. The most widely used laser today is the Q-Switched laser. With each shot, a large amount of heat enters your skin and raises the temperature of the tattoo ink, causing it to dissolve. The laser causes more inflammation in dark skin and changes its color; So if your skin color is dark, the best laser recommended for you is Q-Switched Nd: YAG. It changes the skin color of people with dark skin and prevents possible burns during laser treatment.

Who Is It For

Those who have experienced negative reactions to the tattoo material or feel bored of their current tattoo, or for any other reason whatsoever want to get rid of it are fit to apply for tattoo removal unless limitations and prohibitions are blocking the way. 

  • People with aged tattoos;
  • Those who received their tattoos from unprofessional tattooists;
  • People whose tattoos contain black, brown, bold blue, and green;
  • Those with smaller tattoos;
  • People with brighter tattoos;
  • People with monochrome tattoos.

What Conditions Increase The Time Required For Tattoo Removal

  • Risk of laser burns due to recent sunbathing or using solarium;
  • Removing newly done tattoos;
  • Colored tattoos;
  • Large tattoos;
  • Dark skin;
  • Special skin conditions such as Eczema;
  • Skin-affecting illnesses such as the Herpes virus.

Having any of the above conditions does not mean you can not receive tattoo removal services but that you may require more sessions to successfully remove your tattoo. You must consult with a specialist before having laser tattoo removal if you suffer from certain skin conditions such as herpes, and take the necessary actions and medication to prevent the virus from recurring. Our experienced specialists in Medpaltrip will help you with this.

Preoperative Preparation

Before getting tattoo removal services in Iran, your specialist doctor will visit you to guide you toward the best treatment options, considering the age of the tattoo, its color, and size. 

If you are a candidate for laser removal, your dermatologist will select the most suitable wavelength for you according to the laser and your skin color. Your doctor will also tell you how many sessions you may need for laser treatment.

Tattoo removal is often an outpatient procedure and does not require hospitalization. Some doctors will apply local anesthesia at the tattoo site to help reduce pain. In the following, we will talk about the steps of tattoo removal in all three mentioned methods.

Stages of Laser Tattoo Removal

  • To remove a tattoo with a laser, you enter a room that is usually cool as the heat dispensers of the equipment decrease the room temperature.
  • The seat where you sit for your treatment will have new sheets.
  • You must wear special sunglasses with ultra-dark shades.
  • Laser tattoos have tolerable pain. Depending on the skin type, pain threshold, and tattoo site, your dermatologist will apply local anesthesia such as xylocaine ointment, preferably one hour before the laser, if needed or requested. They sometimes inject anesthesia (lidocaine) before starting laser treatment.
  • By pointing laser beams on your tattoo, the physician measures your sensitivity to the wavelength and selects the best wavelength for your skin.
  • After performing anesthesia and confirming the proper laser wavelength, the technician will start shooting the laser on the surface of your skin.

Smaller tattoos require fewer sessions and less radiation, while larger tattoos require more radiation. After each session, the color of your tattoo will gradually fade and become more prominent. Tattoos of different colors require several types of lasers and often have a poor response to treatment and require longer treatment sessions.

Cosmetic tattoos such as eyebrows, eyeliner, and lip tattoos may look darker than after treatment. Over time the laser treatment effect becomes apparent and the tattoos fade.

Medpaltrip take you only to the most advanced clinics and will be with you throughout the process.

Surgical Tattoo Removal

Surgical tattoo removal is the only definitive solution to remove tattoos. Only a surgery should perform this procedure. While it is a good option for small tattoos, for large tattoos, it is usually difficult and costly and requires more care and so we do not recommend it.

  • It requires local anesthesia on the upper layers of the skin.
  • The surgeon will remove the upper layers of the skin that contain the tattoo with a tool called a scalpel.
  • By removing the skin containing the ink, the tattoo will completely disappear.
  • The surgeon will then suture the remaining edges of the skin together and tries to use as few cosmetic sutures as possible to prevent scarring.
  • He will prescribe antibiotic ointment or oral antibiotic to help with the healing and accelerate wound closure.

Generally speaking, surgical tattoo removal is useful, but it sometimes leaves a scar and as mentioned, is only fruitful for very small tattoos.

Dermabrasion Tattoo Removal

Dermabrasion tattoo removal is a method in which the tattoo is extracted from the skin. The steps are as followed:

  • Your doctor will first cool the target area to numbness; 
  • Then the dermatologist rubs the tattooed skin with a high-speed rotating device to remove the tattoo ink;
  • There will be a feeling of pain and burning at the tattoo site a few days after the procedure;
  • Recovery occurs after two to three weeks.

Dermatologists rarely use this method due to unpredictable results and severe complications compared to laser therapy or a combination of laser therapy and surgery.


  • Immediately after the laser treatment, your doctor will give you a cooling pack to place on the laser site.
  • He will also apply antibiotic ointment to the site and the site is bandaged. Continued use of antibiotic ointment is essential.
  • For up to two weeks, the area of treatment should either be fully covered with clothing or high-SPF sunscreen.
  • Do not shower for at least 24 hours after your treatment.
  • Check with your doctor about the necessities of dressing the target area. Take note that you will require wound dressing after surgical tattoo removal.
  • Avoid scarring.
  • Ask your doctor about the next session (the suggested interval between laser sessions is six to eight weeks).


Laser tattoo treatment has the least amount of complications compared to other methods. Those who choose to have surgery to remove their tattoo will have a condition called scarring.

Our specialists in Medpaltrip will provide you with the most satisfactory results with the least complications.
