People change. It’s a part of life. Circumstances, opinions, and tastes can change over a lifetime, a decade, or even over a few months. Our fashions and hairstyles definitely change, too (hopefully for the better!), and tattoos are no exception. So it makes sense that sometimes that tattoo we got years ago is no longer part of our look. The Aesthetic Medicine and Anti-Aging Clinics of Louisiana specializes in the tattoo removal Baton Rouge trusts. Get your procedure with experienced professionals.
Why Get Rid Of Your Tattoo?
An ex-lover’s name, a drunken mistake, a misspelled word—bad tattoos have become a punchline in popular culture. However, there are other motivators to get rid of your ink. Poor placement of a current tattoo can affect your plans for future body art. Or perhaps your tattoo isn’t of the best quality, and you want to start fresh. Additionally, our skin changes as we age, which can affect how tattoos look. (If you’re looking for skin tightening or body sculpting treatments, we can certainly help you. But even after tightening the skin, tattoos can still appear warped.) Whatever your reason for starting fresh, we can definitely help you!
How Does Tattoo Removal Work?
To discuss how laser tattoo removal works, let’s begin by explaining how your tattoo got there in the first place. You probably remember needles and the whir of the machine. Mechanized needles injected the ink into your second layer of skin. Though your body’s healing reaction kicks in, white blood cells can’t clear out the big ink particles. Therefore, the artwork is permanent. That is until laser treatments came around!
Because your tattoo’s permanency relies on the ink particle’s size, tattoo removal breaks them up. PicoWay® Tattoo Removal uses laser energy. It gradually reduces and eventually eliminates all signs of your tattoo. How? Well, it’s science!
- At Aesthetic Medicine, a trained technician administers the laser in quick bursts. And when we say quick, we mean QUICK—as in a few trillionths of a second quick.
- These bursts of energy target the pigmentation below the skin’s surface. Other treatments try to change the skin’s surface, but real results must penetrate it.
- Light and sound energy works to break up the pigment particles. We repeat the process until they’re small enough for your white blood cells to eliminate them. Though it sounds dramatic, this treatment is more comfortable than ever.
- Most patients need only four to six treatments to remove a professional tattoo. So you really can leave your ink in the past with laser tattoo removal!
