Are tattoos permanent?
There are many people who get permanent tattoos inked onto their body’s only to want it removed for whatever reason later down the line. The good news is that laser removal techniques can eliminate your tattoos with minimal side effects o you won’t have to live with it for the rest of your life.
How does tattoo removal work?
Lasers remove tattoos by breaking up the pigment colors of the tattoo with a high-intensity light beam. Black tattoo pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths, making it the easiest to treat. Other colors can only be treated by selected lasers based upon the pigment color. Depending on the size and color of your tattoo, the number of treatments will vary. Your tattoo may be removed in two to four visits, though it may take as many as 10 more sessions. You should schedule a consultation, during which time your doctor will evaluate your personal situation and advise you on the process. Treatment with the laser varies from patient to patient depending on the age, size, and and whether the tattoo was created by an amateur or a professional. The color of the patient’s skin, as well as the depth to which the tattoo pigment extends, will also affect the removal technique.
