Tattoo removal techniques, such as laser are helping people of all ages rid themselves of tattoos that, for some reason they no longer want…
Equipped with some of the most advanced technology currently on the market, quick and effective tattoo removal is a reality. Using powerful, short laser light pulses, the laser causes the tattoo pigment to fragment into smaller particles and be flushed out by the body's own immune system, without damaging the surrounding skin.
Dark (blue and black) inks, as well as red, orange and purple inks are usually the easiest to remove from the skin. Green and yellow inks, the most difficult. As the different tattoo pigments respond at different rates, multiple treatments may be required for multi colored tattoos.
As a general rule, darker colors can be expected to respond quicker than light colors, and the denser the concentration of tattoo pigment, the greater the number of treatments required.
Upon finishing the treatment, antibiotic ointment will be applied and the area dressed. Home care is required and involves keeping the area clean, and continuing the application of antibiotic and healing balms.
While removing your tattoo be uncomfortable due to the impact of the energy, direct simultaneous cooling and topical anesthetics go a long way to make the process much more comfortable.
