Tattoos are permanent or sometimes temporary coloured patterns on skin made by inserting ink and pigments into the dermis layer of the skin. This art is called “Tattooing”.
Since ancient times, Tattooing is prevalent in India and abroad. There are three types of Tattoos, Decorative, Symbolic and Pictorial. People get attracted to these beautiful designs and get them done on their shoulders, hands legs and other parts of the body. But, after some time they become boring and dull. So, people want to remove them or get a better one in its place.
Why a Dermatologist is Necessary For Tattoo Removal?
Dermatologists are medically trained and skilled doctors. They have full knowledge of the different layers of the skin. They diagnose a person’s health before starting the laser treatment. Several factors are considered before taking a laser treatment like blood pressure, diabetes, fever or other sensitivities towards medicines and drugs. So it is safer to consult a dermatologist before planning a laser tattoo removal in Indore.
To Which Extend Tattoos Can Be Removed By Laser Therapy?
A Tattoo is an intricate design with a different or single colour on the skin. The skin absorbs the pigment and it remains there until it is removed through some treatment. Though all colours can be lightened or removed bu laser treatment, every colour needs a specific wavelength of laser light. Laser tattoo removal should be preferred with a trained and skilled Dermatologist to protect yourself from further infections and complications.
The intensity of colour, depth and age of the Tattoo plays an important role in the laser tattoo removal procedure. The procedure is long and it takes time in giving the final results. Sometimes, the presence of ‘Melanin’ also affects the lightening of the colour of Tattoos. Sometimes, the tattoo is lightened in 2-3 sessions but, most of the time it takes 5-7 sessions to lighten the intense colours. The time between the sessions is a must for the healing of the skin. Laser Therapy breaks the upper layers of the skin to remove the deep bedded ink or colour. This damages the skin, so a gap is given between the sessions to give enough time to the skin for healing. The procedure is painful, so a doctor gives a pain-killer to reduce the intensity of the pain. Doctors avoid doing Laser Tattoo Removal in pregnant ladies and patients with certain drug allergies or sensitivity.
