Tattoo Removal  

Tattooing is done by injecting colored pigments into skin. Once tattoo pigments are injected in skin they usually become permanent. The majority of tattoos are created by professionals at tattoo salons or parlors. At the same time, many tattoos are applied by amateurs with the help of India ink and a needle or a toothbrush.  Besides the obvious reasons of removing tattoos for career enhancement, there are aesthetic reasons why many people elect to remove tattoos. As skin ages, tattoos tend to fade and deform. A tattoo that once was shown with pride may lose its attractiveness and, in some cases, even become an embarrassment The amount of time it takes to remove your tattoo will depend largely on how your tattoo was applied. If you have a newer tattoo or one that has been retraced, it will most probably be more difficult to remove because the pigment will be denser than an older tattoo.

The color used to create your tattoo also has an impact on how easy or difficult it will be to remove. A tattoo made with many different colors is usually more difficult to remove than a tattoo made with just one color. Be prepared to undergo several treatments in order to completely remove your tattoo. This is especially true if your tattoo contains unusual colors. Each of these tattoo removal  treatments is usually spaced about six to eight weeks apart.

Laser tattoo removal is a safe and effective method. It is less painful than getting a tattoo. Lasers remove tattoos by breaking up the pigment colors of the tattoo with a high-intensity light beam.  The pigment is then absorbed by the body.   The more laser treatments you have, the more the laser can penetrate to wipe away the ink.  The number of treatments required will depend on whether the tattoo is professional or amateur. Amateur tattoos are more easily removed; however, with any tattoo you will see a lightening after every treatment. Once the tattoo has been successfully removed the result is permanent.  Overdoing the laser treatments can cause damage to your skin and eventually lead to scarring. The laser type, number of sessions and the patient`s body ability to rid itself of the ink are factors that can determine the outcome of the procedure. Sometimes there are no traces of scarring but it really depends on the situation. Depending on your tattoo, you may need anywhere from 1-10 sessions. Each laser treatment takes only a few minutes to complete. Furthermore, the pigment will never return after it is removed. After laser tattoo removal, there is some redness and mild blistering like a sunburn. This resolves in 3-7 days.
