Why is My Tattoo Removal Not Working?

There are many reasons why your tattoo removal is not working. It can be frustrating to commit your time and resources to a service that does not show results. Before we explain why your tattoo removal may be unsuccessful, we want to discuss what makes tattoo removal at Divine Wellness Medspa different. 

We use the Enlighten® pico laser system by Cutera, a revolutionary laser tattoo removal system that offers one of the biggest breakthroughs in tattoo removal in generations. The Cutera enlighten® system uses picosecond and nanosecond technology that can remove even deep ink from people of all skin tones, including blue and green that aren’t targeted well by other laser procedures.

Now, if you have chosen to use a different provider, here is why your tattoo removal is not working: 

1. Treatment type

What kind of laser is your tattoo removal provider using? This is an important question because there are multiple laser-brands that fall into two types of categories: nanosecond and picosecond. 

Nano second technology depends on heat to break up ink molecules while picosecond technology depends on shockwave energy. Picosecond is by far the better option for a few reasons. One, the more heat a device relies on the greater the risk of complications such scarring and depigmentation. And two, In some instances, the scar tissue resulting from the use of heat-based lasers can encapsulate the ink causing removal to become more difficult.

2. Improperly trained or experienced technician

It is important to read reviews before committing to any tattoo removal service. Technicians and clinics may mean well, but if they are not properly trained or experienced in laser use, then you might not get the results you want. 

Divine Wellness MedSpa is proud of our Google reviews and we employ the most experienced staff in the Ormond Beach/Daytona Beach area. Before your laser treatment, we will conduct a free consultation with you to answer any questions and give you a realistic picture of your expected results. 

We also have experience treating a wide variety of skin tones and colors, and our equipment is designed for all skin types. 

3. Incorrect post-treatment care

Tattoo removal in Florida is made more difficult because of the sunshine and year-round outdoor activities. It is imperative that you follow your treatment provider’s instructions post-treatment to avoid complications. 

Here are some post-treatment care tips to keep in mind:

  • Keep tattoo treatment area clean, dry, and cool
  • Avoid vigorous exercise for 24-72 hours
  • Don’t pick or scratch any blisters
  • Keep area out of the sun

Following post-treatment instructions will help your tattoo removal treatment be successful. Not following these recommendations could result in prolonged treatment needs or your treatment not working. 

4. Time between appointments

Basically, laser tattoo removal treatment breaks up the large ink particles that make up your tattoo so your body can easily dissolve them. That is why you should actually plan for more time between sessions so that your body has time to remove the ink particles broken up by the laser. 

Plenty of time between treatments ensures that your body can process and eliminate most of the particles broken down by the laser and maximizes the effectiveness of each treatment. By giving your body ample time to do its work, you will be helping your body to heal. 

5. Tattoo location

As we mentioned in the previous section, your body will be doing most of the work after your laser tattoo removal treatment. Unfortunately, where your tattoo is located can affect the time it takes to disappear. 

The further away you get from your heart, such as your hands and feet, the longer it takes for your circulatory system to do its job and remove the broken up ink particles. So, when you book your free consultation with us, we can better explain what to expect before and after your laser tattoo removal treatments.
