Skin Numbing Methods for Laser Tattoo Removal

One of the most frequent concerns for laser tattoo removal patients is the pain of the procedure. 

Although all tattoo removal patients have previously experienced the pain of having a tattoo applied, many are apprehensive about the discomfort associated with laser tattoo removal. 

Pain responses to laser tattoo removal are varied. Most patients say the procedure feels similar to getting the tattoo, although some say it hurts less... and some say it hurts more. The sensation is commonly described as bearable yet uncomfortable and "similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin."
