Questions of Laser Tattoo Removal

Laser Tattoo Removal
Laser tattoo removal has become the most widely accepted method to remove any unwanted ink that you may have. The reason behind this is the simple fact that with the amount of people getting tattoos there is also a rise in those that are looking to get rid of them. Thankfully with this rise technology has been improved and there are now safe ways that can be used to remove any unwanted ink such as laser tattoo removal. For people that are looking to remove tattoos there are many questions that have been asked about this method and some of the most frequently asked questions are listed below to help you understand more about the procedure.

    What is laser removal?

This is the procedure of aiming a high intensity laser at your tattoo; this laser penetrates the skin and breaks up the pigment into smaller fragments which allows the body to get rid of the pigment via the immune system without harming the other areas of the skin.

    Does it hurt?

It all depends on your level of pain tolerance. Many people say that the pain level is the same as getting your tattoo done but the pain is more like pining yourself with a rubber band on your skin. There are things that are given to help however such as cooling agents and anaesthesia.

    Can I get complete removal?

Getting full removal can't be guaranteed for anyone due to different types of ink having different types of effects. There are also the factors of size and how old the piece is as well.

    How many treatments will I have to go through?

You will be looking at a minimum of 4 sessions for removal but you may have to go through more depending on how fast your skin heals, the size of your piece, the ink used, the colour of the ink etc.

These sessions will be spaced out over a few weeks to ensure that your skin is fully healed before you start a new session so you could be looking at 4+ months until your tattoo is fully removed from your body.

    Are there side-effects?

You will unfortunately encounter side-effects with the most common being irritation, slight scarring and even discolouration of the skin too. You need to ensure that you use a trained professional that is trusted if you wish to go through with laser tattoo removal otherwise you may end up obtaining damage to the surrounding skin areas.
