It is an advanced cure designed to entirely remove tattoos, without leaving scars or un-pigmented parts of skin after. During this treatment, the tattoo ink breaks down by laser’s high energy light into tiny particles, slowly absorbing by the skin. Tattoo removal through laser may cause minor discomfort, for which a local anesthetic can be used to get rid of that discomfort. Slight side effects may arise after laser tattoo removal treatment; such as redness and tender skin. However, these tend to lessen within seven days.
Every tattoo has altered characteristics that affect the number of removal sittings required. Including :
- Type of ink
- Tattoo’s duration
Number of periods required for laser tattoo removal treatment is mainly determined by the color of the tattoo. Mostly they’re of different color, groups and a different laser is required for each. Before the tattoos are completely removed, they need about 15 to 20 treatments. Turquoise tattoos are more problematic to remove because there isn’t a laser that marks the color effectively. Laser tattoo removal approximately takes about six and twelve treatments in most cases and can be spread over numerous months or a few years.
