Unfortunately, people do not always make the best of decisions when they are deciding on getting a tattoo. Whether it is an old flame's name or a tattoo that is fading and no longer looks as beautiful as it once did, laser therapy can help. The Mrockland Clinic helps individuals overcome their unwanted tattoo so they can be rid of it. With this information, individuals will better understand what they can expect from laser tattoo treatment.
How Do Lasers Remove Old Tattoos
In the past, individuals were forced to undergo serious and invasive surgical procedures to remove an unwanted tattoo. Today, lasers can be used to remove both black and color tattoos. With the SPECTRA Q-SWITCH Nd: YAG, from Lutronic, the laser can deeply penetrate the layers of skin where the tattoo ink was applied.
The laser does not cause significant damage and scarring such as occur with older methods of tattoo removal. In the past, only certain types of tattoos and specific skin colors could be treated, but the SPECTRA Q-SWITCH allows all kinds of tattoos to be treated and all skin colors so no one has to be stuck with an old tattoo they hate.
The SPECTRA Q-SWITCH targets only tattoo pigments without causing any destruction of the skin. The treatment does not change the texture or color of the skin and does not leave behind any scarring.
What Can Patients Expect?
When an individual is going through the tattoo removal process, they will go through single treatments that last about twenty minutes each, depending on the size of the tattoo being removed. Most people will need between six and eight sessions before their tattoo is completely removed. A person will need to wait four to six weeks between each laser treatment so their skin can recover.
Most people do not feel any significant discomfort as the laser treatment is being carried out. Topical numbing agents can be applied before treatment, and the Cryojet System helps to keep patients comfortably cool as their skin is being treated.
Although it takes time, laser therapy for tattoos is one of the most innovative and effective means of removing unwanted tattoos from anywhere on the body.
