After a tattoo removal session, you may experience some redness in the treatment area. This will go away after a few hours. Each treatment has the benefit of little downtime; however, we recommend that you avoid strenuous activity for 24 to 48 hours after treatment.

The Tattoo Removal Process
What to Expect
Book a Consultation
At PureMD, consultations are where we truly get to know you. We’ll listen to all of your concerns, assess the current condition of your tattoo and surrounding skin, and work with you to determine a treatment plan that fits your lifestyle and budget. From beginning to end, you’ll have our full attention and will be treated as a respected and valued guest of our office.
Book your Appointment
Our front desk staff will book your treatment for a day and time that works best for you. Then, we’ll provide you with detailed instructions on how to prepare for your appointment to help optimize your results.
Arrive for Treatment
When you arrive, you’ll be invited to one of our comfortable and relaxing treatment rooms. We’ll give you a comprehensive review of what to expect during a tattoo removal session, make sure you understand what to expect, and answer any and all of your questions.
Sit Back and Relax
Your provider will treat you evenly and accurately. Our team is expertly educated and trained on the best techniques to ensure we meet your high standards and expectations. During a tattoo removal appointment, you’re free to listen to music, chat with your provider, or simply lay back and relax.
Once the treatment session is complete, we will assess the area and give you a brief review of your post-treatment instructions. At this time, we’ll book any follow-up appointments needed to maintain your overall treatment plan and help you make the most of your results!
Before Laser Tattoo Removal:
- Avoid both sun exposure and self-tanning products for a minimum of 4 weeks before each session.
- Avoid applying any irritants, such as exfoliations, masks, or peels, for 1 to 2 weeks beforehand. This includes products containing astringents, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid, retinol, salicylic acids, and/or tretinoin.
- Shave the area.
After Laser Tattoo Removal:
- We will lubricate the area with vaseline and cover it with a band-aid to avoid irritating the area. This usually takes about 2 to 4 days.
- Keeping the area moist will help avoid scars or scabs from forming.
- Should the skin feel hot or irritated, you may cool the area with cold compressions, but these should not be applied directly against the skin.
- Avoid the sun until the area has completely healed, as exposure may lead to hyperpigmentation.
Frequently Asked Questions
How many tattoo removal sessions will I need?
Depending on the size and color(s) of your unwanted tattoo, it could take anywhere from 4 to 8 sessions to achieve maximum removal. We space each of these sessions about 6 to 8 weeks apart to allow the body time to process and heal from the treatment. Based on the amount of ink within the tattoo, we usually see about a 20% reduction in the overall appearance of a tattoo per session.
Can you completely remove my tattoo?
Contrary to popular belief that some colors cannot be removed with laser tattoo removal, advanced technology has allowed us to achieve near-100% removal of your unwanted ink.
How long does tattoo removal take?
Depending on your unique tattoo, a single laser tattoo removal session in Dayton could last anywhere from 20 minutes to 1 hour.
Does tattoo removal cause scarring?
When used in the hands of a highly qualified professional like the ones at PureMD, there are a variety of ways that we can treat the skin beforehand and afterwards to ensure minimal damage. What most people are accustomed to seeing after removing a tattoo is the scar tissue that formed as a result of their initial tattoo, which was not noticeable before.
