Whether you have had your tattoo for decades or just got it in a spur-of-the-moment whim, if you wish it were not there, you are in luck. Laser tattoo removal technology has improved over the years, so you can easily say goodbye to your old ink. Laser tattoo removal tends to be safer and less uncomfortable than the old methods, such as using a salt solution to scrub away the tattoo or surgery. Lasers can be used to remove tattoos that have been partially removed by other methods.
Laser tattoo removal is the most popular removal method among the millions of people who want tattoos removed. The treatment uses high-intensity laser light beams that break up the colors in the tattoo without damaging the surrounding skin. There are different wavelengths for different colors, and black is typically the easiest to remove because it absorbs all light wavelengths. The ink is broken into tiny fragments that are absorbed and eliminated by the body.
Most tattoos take multiple treatments to be completely removed. The size, age, color, placement of the tattoo as well as whether it is amateur or professionally done will determine the number of treatments needed. Small tattoos need fewer pulses and larger ones need more. During a consultation with our specialist, you can learn how many sessions you may need to completely remove your old ink. You will notice your tattoo fading more after every treatment.
There are many reasons why people want to remove tattoos. The most common reason is no longer being happy with the results. They had expectations that were not met. Another major reason for wanting a tattoo removed is the location. The tattoo may be good, but the person would rather have it on a place that is not so obvious. This is why it is important to choose the place carefully before getting the tattoo. Sometimes a person gets a tattoo to change or cover an older tattoo. When this does not go as well as expected, the whole tattoo may need to be removed.
