Laser Tattoo Removal Benefits: What Are They?
Your old tattoo has a good reason for being removed, whether it is a tat of your favorite band’s name or your ex’s initials. The procedure, which was virtually unknown until the late 1960s, has many benefits. Laser tattoo removal has become a popular and effective method of removing regrettable body art.
The removal treatment can be completed in a few simple sessions at our office by our experienced team. You can fit these treatments into your daily schedule and life with minimal downtime and easy recovery. It is reported that almost all patients are candidates for laser treatment, regardless of skin color or type.
It can also improve your self-confidence by removing an unwanted tattoo. It is amazing to our patients to see their skin free of tattoos several months after beginning treatment because of the precision and sophistication of our laser treatment.
What Are the Benefits of Treatment?
Enlighten III lasers offer superior technology and consistently produce attractive results. Using this laser, we can adjust the wavelengths and pulse lengths to ensure that your personalized treatment is right for your skin color, tone, and tattoo ink shade. The laser pulses last for less than a second and gradually degrade tattoo ink in the skin to speed up the removal process.
Laser beams pass through the epidermis to target ink that sits in your lower layers of skin as they fire. The molecules of tattoo ink are destroyed with every precise blast. A laser is adjusted to take into account the ink pigment and your base skin tone, minimizing discoloration and burning, which are common with less advanced lasers. In particular, darker skin tones were affected by these lasers.
You can resume your normal activities immediately after your session is over. The lymphatic system of your body will begin to clear destroyed ink molecules from the treated area during the next few weeks. Your tattoo will be completely removed over the course of your personalized removal plan as more and more ink is removed from the tattoo.
Can you tell me how long it takes?
Considering tattoos are permanent, they can be difficult to remove. In order to ensure that the laser can target the entire piece, we typically divide the removal process into at least two sessions. To allow your skin to heal and allow your body to flush the ink molecules out of your system, each appointment is at least two weeks apart.
Depending on the size of the piece, it may take from three to eight sessions to achieve the results you desire. The ink molecules will have broken down due to the natural aging process and the passage of time if your tattoo is older. There may be a need for more sessions, however, for newer pieces that are more resistant.
We will evaluate your tattoo after each session to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Depending on the size of your tattoo, the color of the ink, and when it was done, your removal plan will be adjusted as needed. When you have a consultation with our doctor, he or she can provide you with an indication of the length of time it will take for your removal.
