Eliminate Unwanted Tattoos Quickly and Easily with Laser Treatment
- Posted on: Oct 30 2019
While getting a tattoo seems like a great idea in the moment, it is not uncommon for men and women to later regret this decision. Perhaps the artwork they had done did not come out as expected, or maybe the tattoo no longer has the same meaning that it once did. Luckily, tattoos are no longer permanent on the skin, thanks to laser tattoo removal.
How does laser tattoo removal work?
Glenn Dale, MD area patients interested in removing a tattoo from their skin are encouraged to book a consultation and initial evaluation with Dr. Valeri Callender. The team at Callender Dermatology and Cosmetic Center can examine the skin and the tattoo to provide an estimate as to the number of laser treatments needed to fade the tattoo away. Laser tattoo removal uses laser light to penetrate the skin and target the ink pigmentation of the tattoo to break it down. With each treatment, patients will notice their tattoo fading, and can achieve full removal.
How many treatments do I need for full removal?
It can be difficult for a doctor to determine how many treatments are required to achieve results with laser tattoo removal. There are factors that need to be considered when deciding the number of sessions needed. These include:
- The size of the tattoo
- The length of time the tattoo has been on the skin
- The quality of the inks used to create the tattoo
- The colors of the ink on the tattoo
Darker colors, larger tattoos, and quality inks may require more treatment sessions than smaller, lighter tattoos. Regardless, patients with be able to fade their tattoo over time using advanced technologies. The body naturally absorbs the inks and patients experience full tattoo removal with continued treatments.
