To remove tattoos, you can first choose laser treatment according to the tattoo color. If it is ineffective, then consider surgery. Generally speaking, if laser treatment is ineffective four to five times, you can’t do it again. Some people have done research in this area. After five times, there is little effect. After five times, surgery is needed. The deficiency is scar.
If you choose surgery, it depends on the size, range and shape of your tattoo. If it is a long strip or the range is relatively small, you can directly remove and suture it. After removing the suture, use kangruibao externally to prevent scars. After three months to half a year, the incision scar can be ground once in three months, and the scar is not obvious after two to four times.
If the scope is large, it is feasible to remove skin grafting and sub resection, or use skin expander. Of course, this method has obvious scars. So you’d better start with laser treatment. Surgery is the last choice. If the grain is shallow, you can also try grinding.
Common methods of laser tattoo removal

Nursing precautions after laser tattoo removal

At the same time, oral antibiotics such as Lijunsha and xianfengmycin are given to avoid sun exposure and strenuous exercise. Cosmetics are prohibited to avoid pigmentation of the wound.
The disadvantage of laser is that it is expensive and time-consuming. However, the patients suffer little pain and injury, and female patients are especially inclined to laser treatment. Generally, about 3 tattoos can be treated with laser therapy.
