You want to get laser hair removal. Perhaps you are tired of waxing and shaving. Perhaps you have an excessive amount of hair on your body. Whatever your reason, you want to get that hair removed, or at least reduced. However, you have a tattoo on the place where you want to have the hair removed, and you aren’t sure if it is safe to go through with hair removal. If you are concerned, there are some things to keep in mind. However, the best way to determine your candidacy for this treatment is to schedule a consultation with true professionals. Look no further than our team at SeaMist MedSpa in South Kingstown!
One thing to keep in mind is that a tattoo does not stop hair growth. When you first get your tattoo, the artist will usually shave the spot where you are getting inked. This is so that they can clearly see the skin and make your tattoo as beautiful as possible. However, eventually, as your tattoo heals, hair will start growing back over the ink.
With all that being said, many people report that hair growth does slow a bit after they have gotten a tattoo. But that is not to say that this is a definite. Theoretically, if your tattoo heals all the way, so too will the hair follicles on the area that has been inked. However, there is a possibility that these follicles will not completely heal. The affected hair follicles would simply slow or stop the growth of hair in that area, meaning you may not need laser hair removal over this specific area. Basically, it all depends on the unique situation.
The best way to avoid any issues with your laser hair removal treatment is to consult with skilled and experienced experts.
