During the treatment you will feel a sensation similar to an elastic band snapping the skin. Most patients find this procedure uncomfortable but not painful. Immediately after treatment the tattoo may appear raised and frosted (white). The surrounding skin may appear red, and there may be some pinpoint bleeding. An antibiotic ointment will be applied. A dressing will also be applied. This should be kept dry and left on for 24 hours. Do not pick at any scabs forming. This may take 1-3 weeks to heal. Sunscreen must be worn on the treated area.
