Years ago, when a person got a tattoo, they were committing themselves to that tattoo for the rest of their life. Nowadays, having a tattoo is less of a commitment. Thanks to laser tattoo removal, individuals are not forced to live with their decision. Before you decide to have a treatment performed to get rid of unwanted ink, you may wonder how effective it is. Here are some things you should know about the treatments we offer here in Lubbock.
A lot of individuals are living with tattoo regret. One of the reasons why a person may no longer want a tattoo is because a relationship that they were in failed. They may have had the name or the image of an individual who they thought they would be with forever tattooed on their body. What seemed like a great way to celebrate a relationship is now a sad reminder of a failed one. Tattoo regret can also come because a person has a tattoo applied by an amateur and they do not like the way it turned out. Thankfully, the treatments we offer can be used to completely erase some tattoos or fade parts of them in order to revise them.
Helpful Things to Know About Laser Tattoo Removal
If you are regretting your ink, the first thing that you should know is that you should only have laser tattoo removal performed by a qualified professional. While it is true that there are all sorts of spas and laser clinics popping up all over the place, you only want to have an expert perform the treatment. We are proud of the services that we offer and the training that we have received. You can feel comfortable having this treatment performed at our office in Lubbock.
It is common to hear people say that this treatment is quick, simple, and an easy solution to an unwanted tattoo. While this treatment is extremely effective, it should not be viewed as an eraser. It involves a process that will require a series of treatments that will be spaced out a set amount of time apart. In some cases, the entire process can take months or longer, depending on where the tattoo is located, the age of the tattoo, and the colors that were used, among other factors. Part of the reason why it is not as simple as having other cosmetic treatments performed is because it involves breaking up pigment molecules and then waiting for the immune system to respond by clearing them out.
Not everyone is going to qualify to have laser tattoo removal performed. The best way to find out about your candidacy for the treatment is to visit our office and go through a consultation. There are many things that can affect your candidacy for the treatment. This is definitely not a one-size-fits-all treatment.
Not all tattoos are created equal. This means that some are easier to remove than others. In general, tattoos that have black ink are going to be easier to remove then tattoos that consist of bright colors. Different wavelengths of the laser may be used to target different colors of ink.
