Tattoo Removal Treatments

One of the growing ways of removing tattoos is with laser tattoo removal. It’s a growing market, especially since the cosmetic laser industry has been on the rise for the last couple of years. In fact, the American Society of Dermatological Surgery found that in 2002, 1 of every 8 people had a tattoo. Of these statistics, 50% of people wanted it removed. One of the most efficient and faster ways of removing tattoos is laser tattoo removal treatment.

Laser tattoo removal is actually a simple process to understand. There are different types of cosmetic lasers for different skin tones. The cosmetic laser beam is directed toward the pigment of the tattoo. Once it’s fired, the laser penetrates the skin on the deeper dermal layers, breaking the tattoo removal pigment into fragments. These fragments of tattoo are flushed out through the body’s lymphatic system. Over time, the tattoo fades and disappears.

Unlike creams, laser tattoo removal goes deeper in the skin’s surface for optimal results. The treatment itself doesn’t hurt, but it can be uncomfortable. Many people ask their laser technician for numbing cream before treatment which usually makes the process more comfortable for the client. Laser tattoo removal is a relatively quick treatment, taking between 5-20 minutes–depending on the size of the tattoo.
