How Soon Can You Treat A Brand New Tattoo?

Every week here at Eraser Clinic we have several consultations with people whose tattoos are just a few days old (yes, you read that correctly). Their question to us: How soon can I begin treatments to remove this tattoo?!

The intention for just about every tattoo is that it will be with you forever, a permanent part of who you are. But the instant tattoo regret described above is actually quite common. Sometimes the tattoo was a spur-of-the-moment decision that the person immediately regrets, and other times the recipient simply does not like the way a thoroughly-planned tattoo turned out.

We are not able to treat the new tattoo with our laser technology until it has completely healed from the tattoo application process, which typically takes 6 to 8 weeks. And you’ll want to take very good care of your tattoo during this time so that your skin heals smoothly with no scarring.

So, the bad news is that you will have to put up with your unwanted, brand new tattoo for a couple of months. But the good news is that we can certainly remove it for you once it is healed.

At Eraser Clinic we are the tattoo removal experts. We offer free consultations and will happily answer any questions you may have about laser tattoo removal. So book your Free Consultation with us today at our locations in Austin, San Antonio, and Houston!
