Laser Tattoo Removal ‘Frosting’ Photos

Immediately after laser tattoo removal treatments the skin appears to have a frosting over it. This is a temporary byproduct caused by the heat the laser generates as it fractures tattoo pigment into very tiny pieces. Think of frosting as tiny gas bubbles of steam or water vapors. The frosting does not need to be wiped away and will disappear within about 10-20 minutes of the treatment, revealing the tattoo again.

Every tattoo will frost a little differently and this is not an indicator to how successful treatments may be.  We share these images to help better explain the entire tattoo removal experience.
