How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?
Using a high-intensity light beam, we lighten and eliminate tattoos, carefully customizing the treatment to make sure you achieve your ideal results. All tattoos are unique, and our experts know how to identify pigment depth, skin type, and other factors that play major roles in your treatment. Badly calibrated treatment can lead to scarring, and we are proud to set ourselves apart by taking the time to deliver customized results without negative side effects. Depending on your situation, it can take from three to six visits to obtain maximum results. However, it may take as many as ten sessions.
At Dr. Beauty, we take the time to determine exactly what treatment will benefit you the most. We believe your skin should reflect the beauty you hold on the inside, and we are proud to offer you the chance to get rid of unwanted tattoos.
Laser Tattoo Removal FAQs:
Does Laser Tattoo Removal Completely Get Rid Of My Tattoo?
Unfortunately, it is common that the tattoo cannot be fully removed, especially after just one treatment. The success of getting rid of your tattoo depends on the size of your tattoo, the colors in your tattoo, how long you have had it, and the depth of the pigment.
Which Color Is The Easiest To Get Rid Of?
Black, blue, and green are the ink colors that respond best to treatment. Red, orange, yellow, and white inks are the hardest to get out of the skin.
Are Older Tattoos Easier To Remove?
Older tattoos are generally easier to remove than newer tattoos because the pigments have already begun to fade.
Are Professional Tattoos Harder To Remove?
Yes. Professional tattoos tend to use a greater amount of ink and more layers of ink, resulting in it being more difficult or taking more sessions to fully remove the tattoo. Amateur tattoos, because they tend to be uneven and superficial, use less ink and are usually easier to remove.
Will My Skin Color Affect The Removal Process?
Tattoo removal tends to be more effective for those with lighter skin because it does not absorb the laser light, allowing the laser to be focused solely on the pigment in the tattoo. Conversely, darker skin tones will absorb some of the laser light, making the treatment less effective.
Will The Location Of My Tattoo Affect My Treatment?
Yes. Certain areas of our bodies may prove harder to treat than others as some have limited vascular supply, which slows the healing process. As a result, tattoos on the hands, feet and lower legs are more difficult to remove than those on the chest or back.
Will I Have A Scar?
It is possible to have scar after treatment — especially those with darker skin are at a higher risk for scaring, however, we do our best to reduce this risk. Also, tattoos that are under scar tissue are harder to remove and take more sessions than those that aren’t.
What About Layered Tattoos?
Many clients will try to cover up their initial tattoo with another tattoo. Because there are more layers of ink, these tattoos will take longer to remove and more sessions. Also, because tattoo ink is translucent, darker tones are usually used to cover up the first tattoo, causing the process of getting rid of the tattoos to be more difficult.
Does Smoking Affect Tattoo Removal?
Yes, it does! Those who smoke have a lower chance of their tattoos being removed than those who don’t smoke. Smoking lowers a person’s ability to heal and their body to get rid of pigment.
