Long ago in your younger days, you thought it would be awesome to get some tattoos. Unfortunately, while the art was genuinely cool, it never really crossed your mind just how permanent it would be. Now, many years later, you are considering that maybe it is time to get your tattoos removed. You have heard that people have had good results with laser tattoo removal, but is it the right move for your situation?
Working with a Cosmetic Dermatologist
If there is anyone who knows skin and how to treat it right, it is our cosmetic dermatologist. The idea of removing tattoos today with lasers is something of a well-understood science. Our dermatologist can prepare you for the procedure and even calibrate the laser to work best with your own skin tone. The idea is that our dermatologist will use the laser to attempt to break up the ink that exists in your skin. Once it is broken up, your body is more able to handle the removal of the ink as if it were a waste product needing to be absorbed and removed from the body.
One great thing about having a dermatologist laser your tattoos away is that each color of ink can be addressed separately. Different colors may require different light frequencies from the laser to effectively break them down, so your laser tattoo removal treatment will be customized based on your wants and needs.
Something that is to be expected with laser tattoo removal is that it generally takes multiple sessions to remove the ink from your skin. With each successive laser treatment, your tattoos should start to become more and more faded. This means that the process is gradual.
