Everyone makes bad decisions when they are young. Getting tattoos is just one of the many bad decisions that people make and end up regretting. At the time it seemed cool, but then as you mature you begin to see the harm that tattoos have done to your life. Fortunately, modern medical science harbors a solution that could work big for your situation. Laser tattoo removal is a viable option that works for many people who are ready to get rid of their tattoos.
Laser Tattoo Removal
A member of our team will prepare your skin with anesthesia and then proceed to use the laser to target the ink embedded in your skin. They will test your skin with the laser to determine an effective energy setting to use when removing your tattoo. The pulse of the laser will feel like a sharp snap against the skin even with anesthesia. While you may experience mild discomfort, the treatment will be over before you know it!
How It Works
The laser works by causing photons to collide with ink molecules. These ink molecules bust apart and can then be removed from the skin by the body’s normal waste response. With each successive treatment with the laser, the tattoo will continue to fade more and more until it can no longer be seen. This process occurs over numerous treatments. A consultation with our team will help us determine your treatment plan.
After the Laser Treatment
You can expect that your skin is going to be a little red and sore after receiving laser tattoo removal treatment. This can feel a little like getting a mild sunburn. Additionally, you will have to be ready to take care of your skin after laser tattoo removal sessions. One of the things you will need to do is keep the treated region of your skin out of direct sunlight. It is recommended that you apply sunscreen to the treated area with a rating of SPF 30 or higher.
