What is Laser Tattoo Removal?
Laser tattoo removal machines now have the technology to provide the appropriate treatment to remove tattoos. To remove the tattoos completely, a patient will need to go through a number of sessions, probably five to eight. After each session, the patient goes home and continues with the normal chores and activities. However, the patient should take care not to irritate the part of the body where the tattoo removal is taking place. Avoid rubbing it or scratching the skin until the wound heals.
How is it done?
There are different ways of removing tattoos. Tattoos can be removed by laser treatment or by excision. Excision involves cutting up the part where the tattoo is and then sewing back the skin. This method is generally practised on small tattoos. New procedures such as laser tattoo removal are now the dominant treatment method. Most tattoos are removable. However, some are more complicated than others are. Some colour shades such as white, yellow and pink are quite difficult to remove. Tattoo removal can be mildly painful may require some aesthetic treatment.
The procedures applied during laser tattoo removal treatment are effective but can also be a little painful. Sometimes the doctor may think it necessary to administer a topical anaesthetic cream on the skin surface to numb the affected area. As treatment commences, the overlying skin is numbed using a powerful cooling machine. The machine reduces any pain or discomfort the patient may experience and prevents thermal injury that may occur in the course of laser treatment.
Why Do People Choose Tattoo Removal?
There are a number of reasons why people might choose to get tattoo removal. Some people simply dislike the appearance of the tattoo. For some others, tattoos are a distinct and unpleasant part of one’s past. This can include people who were once gang members and who now have gang-related tattoos and it can also include people who find that their tattoos hold them back in the business or social worlds. It can even include people who got tattoos representing previously strong, but now failed relationships. Some people even want their tattoos removed so that they can have room for new tattoos.
Benefits of Tattoo Removal
The benefits are obvious with total tattoo removal. You are now able to expose those (socially acceptable!) areas that you have always covered up. Tattoo removal can improve a person’s overall look and how they are also perceived by others to give a stronger confidence.
What Are the Side Effects of Tattoo Removal?
Although laser tattoo removal is relatively safe, it does have some mild side effects. Occasionally there will be pinpoint bleeding or blistering associated with the treatment. It is important that the treated area is kept clean to avoid infection.
How much will it cost me?
The cost of tattoo removal depends greatly on the tattoo removal specialist, the tattoo removal technique, tattoo size, age, the amount of ink deposited, and colours.
