Are you dealing with some genuine feelings of regret over the decision to have your body tattooed? If so, it’s good to know that you’re not alone. It’s also good to know that there is hope. With the help of modern laser tattoo removal techniques, you now have an opportunity to have your tattoos removed. The following are a few details to help you better understand what to expect from this popular tattoo removal option.
How It Works
Lasers can work wonders when it comes to medical and cosmetic treatments, and laser tattoo removal is no exception. During this treatment, a special laser system is used to apply pulses of energy in order to break up the ink within the tattoo. Once it is broken up, the ink will naturally be disposed of by the body’s own waste elimination and healing processes. Of course, the results are gradual; however, you should see the tattoo fading in time.
By calibrating the laser to produce particular frequencies of light to eliminate particular colors of tattoo ink, the laser removal treatment will attempt to address any colors present in the tattoo. It’s important to keep in mind, however, that results vary, and a series of treatments is typically required in order to achieve the desired level of tattoo removal.
Number of Treatments
When it comes to the number of laser tattoo removal treatments a person will have to go through, the actual number may vary considerably. In general, the process involves multiple treatments at our office. Since the process of laser tattoo removal is centered around treatments that fade the tattoo over time, it is observed that in certain situations, a tattoo may not be totally removed as a result of this method of treatment. However, laser tattoo removal is still a successful method for removing tattoos in a significant number of patients.
