One of the most common questions people have when they want to remove their unwanted tattoo is, “does tattoo removal hurt?” The question especially arises when you’re talking about laser tattoo removal. The answer depends on the individual’s pain tolerance, the size and location of the tattoo and other factors. However, when compared to other common activities, laser tattoo removal is actually very easy to go through. Let’s have a little fun and think about the activities that can create more discomfort than laser tattoo removal.
Getting The Tattoo To Begin With
Most people who go through laser tattoo removal treatments say getting the tattoo to begin with was more painful. The laser removal process will require multiple treatments, but each treatment will last less than 3 minutes in most cases. Getting the tattoo put on likely took a significantly longer amount of time and was much more painful.
Many people also say plucking hairs in sensitive areas like your nose creates more discomfort than going through the laser tattoo removal process. This may not be an apples-to-apples comparison, but everyone who has plucked hairs knows what the feeling is like. You can feel confident knowing laser tattoo removal is much more comfortable than this action.
DIY Tattoo Removal Creams
Not only are DIY tattoo removal creams ineffective, but they can also create serious skin damage. The harsh chemicals used in these creams can cause what equates to a severe sunburn sensation on your skin. Many people try to save a few dollars by using these products, but end up spending more money over time when they have to opt for laser tattoo removal anyway. The harshest side effects created by laser tattoo removal is a mild sunburn feeling and maybe a little swelling, which will subside shortly after the session.
The thought of waxing any part of the body can make some people cringe. Having numerous hairs pulled from the root at one time is painful for anyone, no matter how many times you’ve had a waxing session. If you’ve had your hair waxed before, you can feel at ease knowing laser tattoo removal doesn’t feel anywhere close to what you experience during a waxing session.
