How to Fix a Bad Tattoo
You have several options for fixing a bad tattoo, and which one you choose will depend on what bothers you the most about your tattoo and your plans for after treatment.
If you want your tattoo gone completely, you may choose laser tattoo removal. This removes as much tattoo ink as possible, getting rid of that problem tattoo. The Enlighten™ Laser removes more tattoo ink than any other laser.
If you don’t love your tattoo anymore but want another, better tattoo in its place, consider tattoo fading. This will require fewer sessions and will fade your tattoo enough for a tattoo artist to create a new tattoo over it.
If your tattoo has a mistake or just one area you don’t like, you can opt for tattoo correction, which only treats the problem area of the tattoo. This may be the quickest way to deal with a bad tattoo if it only has one area you dislike.
Is There Any Downtime With Laser Tattoo Removal?
You may see some redness and minor blistering of the skin for a few days after treatment, but you can resume all your normal activities. Make sure to keep the treated area away from sun exposure to help it heal.
