If you have a tattoo that you no longer want, you do not have to live with it any longer. With laser tattoo removal, you can say goodbye to unwanted tattoos. This is the perfect option for you if you are simply unhappy with how your tattoo turned out, if you want to get rid of your tattoo for a special event or to join the military, or if something in your life changed, necessitating a change in your body art.
Laser tattoo removal is safe and effective for many people. It uses a variety of wavelengths of laser beams depending on the color of ink that was used on your tattoo. As the laser beams land beneath your skin, the tattoo ink picks them up, and the ink droplets are instantly shattered. Over the coming weeks, your body will naturally pick up this ink and get rid of it via your immune system.
You will require several laser tattoo removal sessions to see the removal of your tattoo. In fact, you should plan on waiting at least a year before experiencing complete removal of the tattoo. The speed with which the process is completed will depend on the size of your tattoo, your skin type, and the color of ink that was used. While a single treatment session does not take very long, you will most likely need four to six for good results. Each session should be spaced at least a minimum of six weeks apart to allow your body to get rid of the dissolved ink particles.
During your laser tattoo removal treatment session, we will do our very best to keep you as comfortable as possible. You will feel the laser working on your skin, but we can offer you a skin numbing solution to keep discomfort at bay. We will go over what you can expect during your consultation so that you will not be surprised by any side effects that you experience.
