You were probably thinking that girl you fell head over heels for in high school would stick with you forever. So it seemed like a safe bet at the time to have her name tattooed in a visible place for all to see your undying love. At the time, it never dawned on you that a couple weeks later, she would dump you. Now that you are stuck with this ex-girlfriend’s name in plain sight for all to see, what on earth can you do to fix this mess? What seemed like a moment of perfect clarity turned out to be a serious mistake. Fortunately, modern medical science has a possible solution for your predicament. Laser tattoo removal exists, and it could change your life for the better. We can determine if this treatment is right for you during a consultation at our office in Ohio.
About the Ink in Your Tattoo
The ink that is used in tattoos contains certain heavy metals: lead, copper, and manganese. Aside from other reasons for having regret for getting tattoos printed all over your body, the fact that the ink is composed of heavy metals that can become toxic to your body is another reason to make sure you have your tattoos removed. Once the laser busts up the molecular structure of the ink, the body’s lymphatic system goes into action to remove the end product out of the skin as if it were a waste product. The result of this action is that the laser treatment will not get rid of a tattoo immediately with a single session at our Ohio office. What happens is that using a laser causes the ink to fade more and more with each session.
How Many Treatment Sessions Do I Need?
When it becomes evident that laser tattoo removal involves multiple treatments, you will likely want to know how many treatments are required to get rid of your tattoo. It all depends on the unique case. Tattoos that are older and faded are oftentimes easier to remove and require fewer treatments on average.
