When it comes to permanent tattoos, the decision of getting inked is very tough and should be taken wisely. But, some people take this decision very hastily, without proper thinking and often regret their decision and want to get rid of unwanted ink. Earlier, it was not possible to get rid of permanent tattoos, but now things have changed.
Now, with laser tattoo removal one can easily get rid of unwanted tattoos. Let’s take a closer look as to why it is better, safer and more effective than other contemporary tattoo removal techniques.
Why choose laser tattoo removal?
Today, a number of options are available for the removal of tattoos like cryosurgery, excision, abrasion and dermabrasion. While most of these techniques are effective, they are also painful and all of them carry risks of infection due to their highly invasive natures. Some of them can be very painful too.
On the other hand, if we talk about laser tattoo removal then it is a non-invasive procedure that gives the desired results without any risk of infections. The treatment is very effective and delivers great results. Definitely, it is a lot better option than the other options listed above.
How does it work?
The laser targets the tattoo pigmentation and breaks it down into smaller bits so that the immune system can remove it. Short pulses of high-intensity laser beams are used to target the pigmentation. They are set so that they don’t harm the skin around the tattoo and only target the tattoo.
As the tattoo ink is a foreign object, the immune system doesn’t accept it and as soon as the tattoo has been inked, it begins working on its removal. This is the reason why tattoos lose their sharpness eventually.
Different types of lasers are used as per the requirement of the given tattoo. Like all laser treatments, the job can’t be done in a single sitting and multiple treatments are required. With each treatment session, the tattoo continues to fade even more. Once the treatment has been done, the tattoo is completely removed.
How many sittings will be needed?
The number of sittings required to completely get rid of the tattoo depends on various factors, like, the colour of the tattoo. Darker colours like blue and black are easier to get rid of while lighters colours like yellow and green are difficult. Red is the most complicated of all colours to remove.
It also depends on the size of the tattoo and how well the tattoo was inked in. A professional’s job is easier to remove as compared to an amateur’s work.
Is it effective and safe?
As for the safety factor, it is the safest of all treatments. The non-invasive nature of the treatment allows it to reduce the risks of infections and many side effects. The side effects linked with laser tattoo removal are generally temporary and mild. There is no downtime and the routine usually remains unaffected after the treatment.
