An innovative approach to treating unwanted tattoos. To perform the tattoo removal, a client will be informed that the method for treating their tattoo involves shattering the ink in the dermal layer of the skin, partially through the absorption of pulses of light energy, which cause the tattoo ink to shatter.
One often undiscussed element of laser tattoo removal is the optimal period between patient visits. Most clients wait until their next session until the treatment area is fully healed. The primary goal of waiting has traditionally been the need for the skin to heal in between sessions. The secondary goal has been to allow the body time to “flush away” the ink that has been shattered by the laser.
Benefits of Laser Tattoo Removal
1. Safe, Easy, and Effective
The laser tattoo removal process uses an FDA-approved laser to easily, safely, and effectively remove tattoos. Laser tattoo removal effectively reduces the appearance of tattoo ink without causing lasting effects to the surrounding skin. The procedure results in minimal damage and virtually no side effects compared to traditional methods.
2. Any Size
The laser removal technique is an effective means of removing any tattoo, large or small. Laser tattoo removal can remove specific tattoos or parts of existing tattoos.
3. Few Side Effects & Minimal Recovery
Laser tattoo removal is one of the safest ways to remove tattoos. The risk of infection is minimal, and few undesirable side effects are reported after treatment. For a few days following treatment, patients will need to use sunscreen on the area to protect their skin from ultraviolet radiation. Some patients report a small amount of redness and tenderness, but these symptoms quickly subside.
4. High Satisfaction Rate
About 11% of people with tattoos will seek treatment for removal and about 70% of these people are women. The majority of individuals who have undergone the procedure are happy with their tattoo removal and do not regret having their body art undone.
