Laser tattoo removal is considered by most experts to be the most efficient and cost-effective way to remove tattoos.
Today, with a Q-switched laser, most tattoos are hidden. In one strong pulse, it sends energy out. The ink in your skin is heated by this pulse of energy to remove it.
To remove your tattoo, you'll need to undergo a series of laser treatments for several weeks or longer.
Often, lasers don't fully erase a tattoo. They lighten it or fade it instead, so it's even less visible.
Current Skin Damage
Choosing wisely and beginning your tattoo removal treatments with a clinic is critical. Tattoos that are either incorrectly applied or inappropriately treated at other clinics for tattoo removal will also have scarring. This scarring may be noticeable under the skin, or both. One treatment is what it takes for the whole removal process to be affected.
Laser Tattoo Removal would be successful only if the skin is in good condition, with no damage of any sort. Damage caused by an inexperienced person or even a deep scarring tattoo will make the light reflected not absorbed. If this is the case, you will not be able to remove your tattoo entirely.
The Ink Type
The type of ink plays a major role in the ease, or sometimes difficulty, of tattoo removal processes. Literally, there are thousands of types of inks, many of which are made in various ways. It is quite doubtful that even the person who has applied your tattoo will be able to recognize the exact ink positively.
Even if they know the brand, the ink components can sometimes be altered by factories and suppliers, and this can often make the process unpredictable.
The Ink's Color
Did we delete any of the colors? Yeah, but unfortunately, once their laser begins working on the paint, no one can guarantee the full removal of any colored tattoo. At the very worst, 80-90 percent of even the hardest color can be eliminated, which is enough for many individuals to consider the procedure a success.
How Is Laser Removal?
At a cosmetic clinic, you can get laser tattoo removal. With a local anesthetic, a laser technician can numb the tattooed skin. They're going to apply the laser to the skin next. Following each operation, the skin can bleed, blister, and swell.
Over several sessions, this process is replicated until you are satisfied with the degree to which your tattoo has faded.
The average treatment course varies dramatically from person to person. In general, with laser therapy, it takes between six to eight sessions to remove a tattoo. For the best performance, you'll have to wait six to eight weeks between sessions.
