Laser Treatment For Tattoo Removal In Hyderabad
Tattoos went from being taboo to being almost a fashion accessory over the past decade. But a fair number of those who have been ‘inked’ regret getting it done for a wide range of reasons. Until recently, tattoos inked into your skin were considered permanent. Science and technology changed that game entirely. Laser assisted tattoo removal technique has been the saving grace for many a disgruntled tattooed person. At Ambrosia, one of the best laser tattoo removal clinics in Hyderabad, we ensure utmost care is part of the process for every patient.
How does laser tattoo removal work?
Lasers are deep penetrating beams of light which are focused onto the tattoo area of the skin. Once they reach the pigmented areas of the skin, they erase them by breaking up the colours. Black tattoo pigment can absorb all laser wavelengths and is therefore the easiest colour to treat. Other colours can only be treated using specific lasers based on the pigment colour.
The entire process must first begin with a consultation with a trained professional from our team who will analyse the tattoo area and determine the course of treatment. The number of sessions will depend on how old the tattoo is, the size and the colours used in it. Your skin tone and depth at which the pigment is under the skin will also determine the entire process of laser assisted tattoo removal. To completely erase a tattoo multiple sessions may be required, but each time the tattoo will get progressively lighter.

Simple tips to care for the treated area will go a long way:
- Use an ice pack to soothe the treated area
- Apply an antibiotic cream or ointment and bandage the area to protect it
- Use sunblock on the treated area
Is laser tattoo removal painful?
You have already gone through the pain of getting the tattoo, sadly enough the removal is also uncomfortable. You will not need anaesthesia but depending on the location of the tattoo you may require a local anaesthetic cream before the procedure.
Why do I need a consultation with an expert to get my tattoo removed?
At Ambrosia, the best Cosmetic Surgery Clinic in Hyderabad, we believe in a thorough examination of the tattoo area to determine issues that will determine the effectiveness of the procedure:
- How old is your tattoo
- The colours used
- How deep the pigments sit under the top skin layer
- Where the tattoo is located
- Your overall health and if you are on any medication that may adversely react with the procedure
- If you have existing scar tissues that need to be dealt with
You get to ask all the questions you have during the consultation and also know beforehand how many sessions you will require as well as tattoo removal costs involved. We believe that informed decision making along with you helps us too.
Can I not go to a tattoo parlour to get the tattoo removed?
Are there side effects of laser tattoo removal treatment?
However, if done by someone without proper medical training there are chances of scarring, changes in your skin texture, burns and other wounds. Also, because they will use only a single beam of laser, some of the ink may still remain since a single laser cannot remove all colours of the tattoo.
Why are multiple sessions needed for tattoo removal?
Is laser tattoo removal safe for everyone?
It is a completely safe procedure for everyone, although pregnant and breastfeeding women are not advised to undergo this treatment.
How can I ensure the best results for the tattoo removal procedure?
- Once you have devised a plan with the dermatologist for the number of sessions, ensure you keep all your appointments. Do not be tempted to stop treatment once you see some results and assume the rest will go off naturally. Remember, each session removes more ink and it is possible only with the lasers.
- Our dermatologist will advise you easy home care such as – wash the area and apply an antibiotic cream for a few days to avoid infection. Also moisturise the area heavily and keep it covered until the skin heals.
- The treated area needs to be protected from the sun at all times for 3 months after each session. Wear appropriate clothing to make sure that sunlight is completely blocked out from the area.
Is it safe to use salt to remove a tattoo at home?
There are some videos available online that suggest rubbing salt on the tattoo as a home remedy. This involves salabrasion that removes the top layers of the tattooed skin and then rubbing salt on the raw skin to scrub away the ink. This is not only extremely painful but could possibly lead to a serious infection. When the skin finally heals, you will have a scar to contend with.
I had lovely laugh lines that made me look attractive when I smiled, or so my friends said. But it worried me that my skin was getting less supple as I grew older. Having read and heard so much about skin tightening treatments, I decided to give it a shot. My first consultation at Ambrosia helped me understand what to expect and how to care for my skin post procedure. Dr. Priti’s thoroughness during the examination was very reassuring too. I thoroughly recommend everyone who is concerned about their skin looking uncared for as they age. Ambrosia totally helped me remind myself that age is only a number. Thank you Dr. Priti for your magic.

My teenage acne had left a lot of scars on my face. That was all I saw when I looked in the mirror. While searching for treatment, I came across Ambrosia and decided to check out what could be done about it. My first impression when I walked in was one of complete ease with the warmth of the staff and the calm atmosphere. The initial consultation helped me understand what can be done to gradually remove the scars on my face as well as what I needed to do post-procedure. I am so happy with the results and go out of my way to mention Ambrosia whenever someone points out how smooth and beautiful my skin looks now. Thank you Ambrosia!

I had broken my nose as a child after a fall. It was misshapen because of that. The twisted nose also led to breathing problems. Searching for solutions, I came across Ambrosia Clinic and the procedures they offer to correct that. I was suggested surgery. I am thankful to the team of plastic surgeons who helped correct my nose as well as the breathing problems. My recovery time was minimal and I am able to lead a normal life since then. A big thank you to the great team at Ambrosia.

I had skin pigmentation on my face. It always made me conscious and I would hide it with layers of makeup. My friend suggested I meet Dr. Priti and do something about it instead of hiding behind makeup. I did not know what to expect, but was totally blown away by her warmth and the modern set up at Ambrosia. She not only explained the procedures I could get done but also what to expect at each stage during recovery. I thoroughly recommend Ambrosia and especially Dr. Priti to everyone.
