Can I have my 1st Treatment on the day of the patch test?

Apr 26

It is very important to have a patch test with the laser machine prior to commencing your treatment. A patch test (this is where we actually use the machine on the tattoo) is normally done on a very small area of the tattoo. The purpose of the patch test is to ensure that the tattoo heals adequately and with no adverse effects. It is not uncommon to experience blistering or scabbing after a laser treatment. Such reactions are considered normal. However on very rare occasions someone may experience a more profound reaction. For that reason it is very important to wait at least 24 hours between the time of the patch test to the time of the first treatment. While we understand that some clients are travelling a distance in order to have their treatment, we will always insist on a patch test first, with a wait thereafter of a minimum of 24 hour before any treatment can be carried out. It is important not to rush the laser process- your skin is important! At LaserYou, our primary consideration is the clients welfare. That is why we have medical professionals carrying out tattoo removal treatments using the most advanced technology – PicoSure.
