Tattoos are a great way to express yourself with a piece of permanent art on your body, but what happens when you change your mind? While removing tattoo ink from the skin has traditionally been a difficult treatment, advances in laser technology have now made it possible to clear unwanted tattoos from the skin with minimal discomfort and downtime.
What is Laser Tattoo Removal?
Laser tattoo removal exists as one of the most reliable ways to remove unwanted ink from your skin. It exhibits several advantages that traditional methods of tattoo removal cannot provide while offering a higher removal rate for most tattoos.
The benefits of laser therapy make this method of tattoo removal significantly different from those of the past. This light passes harmlessly through the skin and works by transforming into heat when it reaches the ink that makes up your tattoos.
This heat allows the pigment particles to be broken down into smaller pieces. Your body can naturally remove these smaller pieces, which in turn allows your tattoos to fade until they have been completely removed.
What Side Effects Does Laser Tattoo Removal Bring?
The side effects associated with laser tattoo removal are limited. The most common ones are redness or irritation that lasts for only a few days. Our medical team will ensure that the laser treatment is safe for your skin type to reduce the risk of more serious adverse reactions.
Why Opt for Laser Tattoo Removal?
Laser tattoo removal has been designed with patient safety and comfort in mind, and the laser wavelengths available on the market today can effectively target most ink colors. Although the extent of your tattoo removal will depend on the size of the tattoo, the area that it’s located, the age of the tattoo and whether it is considered professional or amateur, this treatment has a high success rate and overly positive patient satisfaction.
Another major advantage of laser tattoo removal it happens gradually over a course of multiple treatments, which is gentler to the skin than trying to remove it in one attempt. This tends to provide better results because our medical team can use a more flexible approach that comprehensively breaks down the ink within your skin.
