You were probably really excited to get your tattoos. At the time, you thought they looked amazing. But times change, people mature, and sometimes the tattoos that seemed so right for your earlier life may be causing problems for you now.
Unfortunately, tattoos are meant to be permanent. It’s not as easy to get rid of tattoos as it is to change your clothes or your hair when they no longer suit your lifestyle.
The older methods of tattoo removal have side effects. They can damage your skin. And some of the old methods aren’t even very good at erasing the tattoos.
Fortunately, there’s a new, cutting-edge solution — laser tattoo removal.
The Advantages of Using Laser Treatment to Remove Tattoos
Laser tattoo removal is better than traditional methods of removing tattoos for many reasons:
- Traditional tattoo removal methods can’t focus very precisely on the pigment in your skin. These methods use a kind of brute force approach. The result is that these old treatment methods take out healthy skin cells along with the pigment. This undesirable side effect can create ugly scars. With laser tattoo removal, the pigment is precisely targeted, and the healthy surrounding cells are not harmed.
- Laser tattoo removal is faster than many alternative treatment methods. Recovery time is quick, usually just a few days after your treatment. The whole process usually takes about four to six weeks.
- Laser tattoo removal is safer than many traditional methods.
How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?
In laser tattoo removal treatments, the laser beams pass through your skin without causing harm and target the tattoo pigments. The lasers break up the ink pigments into particles that are small enough for your body to remove.
After treatment, you will notice that the tattoos gradually fade away. You may need several treatments, and after each one you will see the tattoos becoming fainter until you can’t see them at all.
