The guaranteed efficacy of the laser is in the dark-colored tattoos. The application of laser is relatively painless and apply topical anesthetic cream can be applied for an even smoother treatment. The process of removing a tattoo of small or medium size takes about 10-20 minutes. A patch test is recommended before applying a laser to determine the factors that may cause a skin allergy.
