Tattoos are meant to be a permanent decision, but that doesn’t mean they can’t go away. The procedure is called tattoo removal and it’s been around for over ten years. There are many different methods of removing tattoos, some more costly than others; it really depends on what you’re looking to get done and how much time you have to wait before getting another one.
If you have a tattoo you regret getting, you’re not alone! According to a 2012 Harris Interactive Poll, 1 in 8 Americans with tattoos regret getting at least one.
Tattoos are meant to be permanent, but there is a way to remove them. Laser surgery is an effective and safe way to remove tattoos. The dermatologist who specializes in tattoo removal will use a laser beam of light that penetrates the skin at different depths depending on the color of the ink used. This breaks up the pigment into tiny particles which are then absorbed by your body’s immune system and removed from your body over time. A series of treatments may be necessary for complete removal, but it can take years before all traces of your tattoo disappear completely!
If you’re looking to get rid of a tattoo, laser removal is an option. Laser removal works by breaking up the pigment in your tattoo with high-intensity laser energy.
The type of laser used depends on the color of ink in your tattoo and whether or not it has multiple colors. Some tattoos may require more than one treatment, which can be costly and time-consuming for patients.
We use gentle pulses of light that break up the pigment particles without damaging surrounding tissue or skin pigmentation. This means less pain during treatment and faster healing times after each session! Plus, there is no need for any anesthesia or numbing cream before getting started! You will be amazed at how little discomfort you feel during the treatment when compared to other methods like dermabrasion or salabrasion (scrubbing). Our lasers are so precise, we can treat even small areas such as fingers and toes without causing damage to nearby tissue! Lastly, this method does not cause any scarring after removing your tattoo unlike some other methods out there today that leave permanent scars behind after treating a patient’s unwanted body art. So if you want a better way to remove those unwanted tattoos then make sure you schedule an appointment with us today so we can show you just how easy it is!
