Tattoos, a permanent feature, but their beauty may be fleeting. Once the flame is gone, you might not always enjoy what you see, or what it represents to you ‘in the now’ as opposed to when it was created. This is when you start thinking of tattoo removal.
This unpleasant feeling lasts, a mark against us which cannot easily be removed. Or even if it is removed, the risk that the mark left over will be worse than the tattoo itself.
Millions of individuals with tattoos face the same conundrum every day. Removing it represents a decision just as big, a leap of faith just as far.
Because each tattoo is unique, removal techniques are tailored to suit each individual case.
In the past, tattoos could be removed by a wide variety of methods. But, in many cases the scars were more unsightly than the tattoo itself.
But there may very well be a solution which you’ve never even knew about, much less considered, laser tattoo removal.
Why are lasers ideal to remove unwanted tattoos?
Lasers are able to remove tattoos by breaking up the pigment colors of the tattoo with a high-intensity light beam. This may sound simple enough, but as with all treatments, there is an innate risk, like a lack of complete pigment removal, or a slight chance that the treatment can leave you with a permanent scar.
To have a tattoo removed, you need to ensure you find a reputable dermatologist, cosmetic center, or medical spa to ensure proper treatment and care. Treatment with laser depending on the age, size and type of tattoo (amateur or professional). The color of the patient’s skin, as well as the depth to which the tattoo pigment extends, will also affect the removal technique.
