Growing up in Cincinnati, you always had cool body art to show off to others. But lately, you have been thinking it might be better to just have it removed. Come to find out, you are not alone in how you feel about your tattoos. A poll taken in 2012 revealed that one in seven people asked wanted to have their tattoos removed for a variety of reasons. These days, you’re thinking that maybe laser tattoo removal could work for you. But it the treatment right for you?
The Downsides of Using Bentonite Clay
Before you heard about laser tattoo removal, you may have tried fading your tattoos with bentonite clay. At first, applying wet bentonite appeared to do some fading, but it seemed to not be doing so well after the first two or three applications. Plus, you really did not enjoy all the scrubbing you had to do. Now that you heard about removing body ink with laser technology, you imagined this might be a more effective approach to getting rid of your tattoos. Well, you are correct!
Say Hello to Laser Tattoo Removal
With this treatment, our practitioner can take to your skin with a laser to target ink molecules in the sublayers of skin with photon energy. When the ink absorbs the photon energy, it causes the ink molecules to bust up and the tattoo fades. The busted up ink molecules are now in a state where your lymphatic system can treat them like a waste product and remove them from the skin to be disposed of by the body’s normal methods of waste elimination.
Of course, since the laser is only able to fade the tattoo each time it is used, a single session with the laser will not be enough to get rid of your body ink. You will need to undergo a series of treatment sessions in Cincinnati until the tattoos are completely eliminated from your skin.
