Tattoo Removal

Tattoo Removal

Tattoos are popular to show personal messages, respect, and because tattoos are “cool.” As time goes on, however, these tattoos may become less meaningful.

Tattoo removal was once highly unsuccessful; surgery was needed, it was painful, and scarring was common. Laser technology has improved tattoo removal making the procedures less painful, faster, and easier. Laser treatments for tattoo removal break down tattoo ink and don’t leave a scar where the tattoo is removed.

Laser tattoo removal technology uses intense energy aimed at different ink particles to break up pigments into small pieces. This breaking-down treatment allows the immune system to remove the ink naturally. Green is one of the most difficult tattoo colors, and black is the easiest color to remove.

Since tattooing uses permanent ink injected below the skin’s surface, removing a tattoo is more difficult than applying the artwork. Laser treatments work at different depths in the skin, and you may need up to five to ten sessions done over a year to break down all the ink.

Tattoo removal can be intensified by the tattoo’s density, depth, composition, location, lifestyle, and health choices. You should maintain a healthy lifestyle, exercise, and massage the tattoo area to keep blood circulation strong during and after the tattoo removal sessions.

FAQs

There are varying levels of discomfort. Your tattoo removal provider can give you ice or numbing cream for comfort.

It takes an average of 20 minutes per removal treatment, but at least 5 – 10 sessions are done over many months. Usually, we require eight to ten weeks apart for each treatment.

You will experience some swelling, skin frosting, or the chemical reaction working on pigments, some itching, and blistering. These side effects do go away with care and protect the area from environmental factors.

Use an over-the-counter antibiotic ointment like Neosporin, do not pick at scabs, blisters, or crusts; wear sunblock to protect the area where your tattoo has been removed. Avoid using makeup or lotions that irritate the healing skin.
