There are a lot of reasons why people choose to get a tattoo. Many do so because they think it’s cool or because they are being pressured to do so by their friends. It is surprising the number of people who opt to get a tattoo while they are under the influence of alcohol. When they are sober again, many regret the decision they made to get a tattoo.
Unfortunately, by their very nature, tattoos are designed to be permanent. However, advancements in laser technology have made it possible for people to get some of the tattoos that they regret removed from their body. Getting a tattoo removed is not as simple as running an eraser over the tattoo. It is a time-consuming process.
Before sitting down to have laser tattoo removal, you should at least understand the basics of the procedure. You need to sit down and talk to our laser treatment experts. They will examine your tattoo and give you a realistic prognosis. Once you know what to expect after your tattoo has been removed, then you will know whether or not to proceed with the procedure.
The thing to remember with laser tattoo removal is that one treatment is not enough. It is likely that you will need multiple treatments to successfully remove your tattoo. And when it comes to laser tattoo removal, the number of treatments you will need is not something that can be determined during the first visit.
Something else to remember is that the laser tattoo removal procedure must be done in intervals. This means that you will have one laser treatment, and then you will need to wait for a set amount of time before you can have the next laser treatment. In most cases, you will need to wait between four to six weeks between each laser tattoo treatment.
One factor that will impact the effectiveness of the laser tattoo removal process is who gave you the tattoo in the first place. Professionally applied tattoos are usually easier to remove than those done by amateurs. When amateurs give a tattoo, their ink dispersal is usually uneven. And so it makes the tattoo harder to remove.
