You had just finished graduating high school, and you decided to get a giant tattoo that angles down the side of your neck. It is one of those tattoos that was easier to cover up when you had long hair, but harder to make disappear from sight now that you are an adult with a shorter haircut. Perhaps you’ve also set your sights on a particular job. Your tattoo is sort of a talking point, and it is hard to take you seriously during an interview with your neck attracting so much attention. You thought that maybe it was time to do something radical and have this art effaced from your skin. Here at Advanced Laser and Cosmetic Center in Cincinnati, we are proud to offer tattoo removal and encourage you to learn more about it.
Saying Goodbye to Your Tattoo
You were probably hoping it would be easy to get rid of your tattoo. It was a passionate, youthful gesture to have something inked on your body, but now your tattoo is proving inconvenient. As such, it only makes sense to allow a professional to help you remove it. Sure, you gave some home remedies a try, but they really were not able to do anything significant. This is because the ink of your tattoo is well below the surface layer of skin. Creams and ointments are incapable of reaching ink at such a depth. One approach that works very well is to obliterate the ink molecules in your tattoo with a laser. With that in mind, you decided that the clinic in Cincinnati is the best opportunity you have to remove this tattoo once and for all.
How Many Tattoo Removal Appointments Do You Need?
When it comes to using a laser to get rid of tattoo ink in your skin, a series of treatments may be necessary. If your tattoo is starting to fade, chances are you will need fewer treatments with the laser. Also, if your tattoo is an image that is primarily constructed using black ink, then you are in luck. Black ink is by far the easiest ink color to remove. This is because black ink is able to absorb all frequencies of light; thus, making it far easier for the laser to shatter the ink molecules into small pieces. With each tattoo removal treatment using the laser, you should notice your tattoo is fading more with each visit. After being worked on by the laser, you will have to cover up your tattoo to protect it from direct sunlight. Wearing sunscreen with a rating of SPF 30 or higher is recommended until your skin becomes less light sensitive.
