Tattoo Removal
in Pune


Tattoos are fashion signs of the younger generation. As a part of the tradition, people in countryside invariably have their names or images tattoed on their forearms, chest or shoulders or a permanent dot as a Tikka on their forehead. Tattoo removal is the process that is done to erase an unwanted tattoo. It is usually done because people don’t like it anymore, the tattoo doesn’t age well, or it develops some allergic reactions or other complications. Skinovate is one of the best clinics which provide cost-effective solutions for permanent tattoo removal in Pune.
Before & after

What are the various treatments options for permanent tattoo removal?

Treatment options for tattoo removal include the following:

Laser tattoo removal
Removing tattoos using lasers is the quickest, safest, and most effective method. It involves exposing the inked skin to a beam of laser light. Depending on the color of the tattoo, specific wavelengths of light are concentrated on the inked skin. The light gets absorbed and breaks the pigment into small particles later filtered out from the body biologically. This technique can easily remove blue and black colors. Other colors may need more than one session, but it is possible to fade them entirely in the end.

IPL (Intense pulsed light/radiofrequency) treatment involves the use of infrared waves focused on the target area of the skin to break down the pigments present in the tattoo. This process is suitable for bigger tattoos as it uses larger light pulses. However, IPL treatment is not used for dark-skinned individuals because sometimes it may result in hyperpigmentation.

Cryosurgery involves introducing liquid nitrogen to the skin containing the tattoo, after which a specific light is introduced that peels the skin and lightens the tattoo. After repeating this process multiple times, the tattoo is faded eventually. However, this type of technique is not effective on yellow and green pigments.

Plastic surgery
This invasive technique is generally used to remove small tattoos. In this process, skin grafting is done to cover the tattoo. A thin skin layer is removed from a healthy part of the body and is transplanted over the inked area.

Dermabrasion involves the use of a mechanical grinding tool to remove the superficial layers. This tool pierces the inked skin to stimulate new skin cell growth, eliminating the inked skin layer.

Saline Tattoo Removal
This technique involves exposing the skin to a salt solution and healing with the formed scab. Lightening of the tattoo takes place after the scab falls off. This treatment is done under anesthesia and requires multiple treatments.

Other treatment methods such as Salabrasion and Chemical peel treatments can also be used, but they are inefficient and may also cause pain. Makeup can also be done to hide the tattoo, but that is not a permanent solution.

What are the factors that determine the speed of tattoo removal?

Generally, it takes six to eight weeks to erase a tattoo completely. However, the timeline of this treatment largely varies from person to person depending on some factors, which are as follows;

  • Location of the tattoo
  • Colors of the ink
  • Age of the tattoo
  • Vividness of tattoo
  • Skin type of the patient
  • Tattoo layering

What Can You Expect From Our Tattoo Removal Treatment?

It should be borne in mind that it is a slow process. With each session lasting up to half an hour, it may take around ten sessions with a gap of 1 month between two sessions for excellent results. A dark-coloured tattoo in blue or black can get easily removed, but it is quite challenging to remove light-coloured tattoos.

How Is The

It is not that every laser can do wonders. Only Q switch lasers can produce the necessary energy to remove the dark and bright tattoo marks without making scars on the skin. Our specialized Q switch lasers are soft on the skin and react only with the tattoo pigment. The tattoo absorbs the laser beams’ corresponding colour and gets disintegrated from the underlying substrate layer of skin. Hence the skin does not react to the laser beams. The natural body defence mechanism slowly removes the disintegrated tattoo over some time.

Post Procedure Care

Ice packs and ointments if necessary, are prescribed. Swelling and discolouration in the skin will diminish in a few days. And finally, exposure to sun and hot baths should be avoided till the instructions of the doctor. Skinovate always strives to provide the best. The success of each treatment is evident from the smile we see across our treated patients.

What is the cost for permanent tattoo removal in Pune?

The average cost of tattoo removal varies from individual to individuals depending on various factors, such as the size of the tattoo, its pigment density, or the area on which it is present.
