I had my first session yesterday during my lunch break. Like I said, I was pretty scared.
I won't lie, it was really painful. Essentially what the laser does is target the ink pigment and "smash" the molecules up until they are small enough that the body can absorb them and drain them through your lymph system.
The "smashing" of the ink molecules hurts. It's like a cross between being snapped really hard with an elastic band and being splattered with hot oil. Luckily, the process was really fast. It was maybe 10-15 minutes and then I was done.
Afterwards my wrists felt like I had burned them with scalding water, but I took a tylenol and after 45 minutes I felt fine. They were swollen last night and still a bit today. Just a little sore. The pink star is more sore and a little bloody..but very tolerable.
If I respond well, I may be able to return as soon as 4 weeks for my next session.
I am so hopeful that these tattoos will be able to disappear.
I'm going to post some pic soon my blog this weekend some time to document the progress.
Thank-you Bokkechick for the beautiful siggy
