Lasertattoo Removal How To Get Rid Of Tattoos

What is Laser Tattoo  Removal?

Tattoos are a great way to express your individuality, and you should be proud of yourself!

But what if it didn't turn out quite like you hoped it would? Many people find themselves deeply regretting their decision to get tattooed.

At first, getting a tattoo may seem like a fun idea, but many people later change their minds when they realize that the design isn't really what they wanted or they are no longer attracted to it…

Although new, laser tattoo removal is becoming a popular option for those, who want to get rid of their tattoo. It is not as painful as other methods, although some annoying side effects are.

Sometimes old tattoos fade naturally over time as the body's immune system recognizes ink particles as something that needs to be sent away.

This is why it is often easier and quicker to work with laser removal for older tattoos. Laser tattoo removal works by shattering the ink into even smaller bits, then flushed away more quickly.

The Science Bit

The ink is deposited at various depths within the deepest layer of skin when a tattoo is applied. The removal process first targets the shallowest layers of ink, so it will take multiple treatment sessions for laser removal to penetrate through an entire tattoo.

When you want your tattoo removed quickly but don't want to deal with scarring or long periods of pain, try a less-invasive option such as laser resurfacing (sometimes advertised online under another name).

This article aims to help you understand everything about tattoo removal so you can make your own educated decision.

Laser Tattoo removal has been an issue for centuries. The most popular techniques include dermabrasion, salabrasion, chemical destruction, cryosurgery, electrosurgery, and surgical excision.

Non-selective destructive modalities can often leave behind small areas of scars and/or dyspigmentation. This is because they use lasers or other forms of light energy to target different coloured pigments in the skin.

Laser therapy can be used to remove tattoos without harming the surrounding skin. All colours of a tattoo can be treated, but black ink is easier to remove than other coloured ink due to its absorption properties.

Laser Tattoo Removal: What to Expect

First, the dermatologist will examine your tattoo to ensure it is dark black or some other dark colour. He will then take samples of your tattoo and test them. This is called a chromatic analysis and will determine which wavelength of laser treatment would be ideal for you. After this, the doctor will apply a topical anaesthetic to numb the area before treating you with laser light to remove the tattoo.

  1. The technician will test your skin's reaction to the laser to determine the most effective energy for treatment.
  2.  You'll be given a pair of protective eye pads
  3. ​The technician uses the laser to pass pulses of intense light through the top layers of your skin that will be absorbed by the tattoo pigment only.

Is Laser Tattoo Removal a Good solution?

There's no denying that it can be a very effective way to remove tattoos quickly. However, it's important to remember that not everyone is cut out for this type of procedure.

It requires a steady hand and experience. In addition, it can be risky if you don't use the right equipment. That's why I highly recommend consulting a reputable tattoo removal clinic before going any further.
