Tattoos are such a unique form of self-expression. They can be displays of personal beliefs, things we value, things we have achieved, hobbies that we embrace, or can be merely art for art’s sake. Nearly 30% of people in the United States have at least one tattoo. However, many times people may come to regret a tattoo for a variety of reasons. In fact, of the 30% of Americans with tattoos, 25% of them regret getting them. Fortunately, we have the miracle of Laser Tattoo Removal. Let’s take a look at how it works.
In a laser tattoo removal treatment, the laser is used to disrupt the ink pigment that is embedded in the skin. In other words, the pigment is broken down with the high-intensity light beams. In the case of black ink, the black absorbs all of the laser wavelengths, making it the easiest color to treat. All other colors can be treated by selected lasers based on their colors.
At Juvanew Medspa, we use the Fotona QX Max laser. The Fotona QX Max laser uses highly concentrated pulses of energy that are absorbed by the pigment in the tattoo. The pigments are then broken down into tiny particles. These tiny particles are then safely absorbed by the body and flushed away by the body’s natural lymphatic system.
The age, size, type of ink, and color of the ink will affect how many treatments will be necessary to remove all the pigments. The pigments will fade and disappear over time as treatments continue. A typical treatment averages 30 minutes and many people see results in as little as two treatments, but most patients need anywhere from 4 to 8 treatments to get the best results.
Most patients describe the laser removal process as feeling a targeted heating sensation. This feeling can be uncomfortable, however, the vast majority of patients agree that it is not as painful as getting the tattoo. In order to make the whole process more comfortable, a cooling device can be used during the treatment. After the treatment, the site may blister, scab, or peel. Ice packs can be used to cool the site and reduce inflammation. So, while there is pain associated with having the tattoo removed, your technicians will do all they can to make the removal as painless as possible.
“As a 19 year old young woman, I got a tattoo that I sorely regretted later. They were able to remove it in 2 sessions. It was affordable and easy. A bit painful but no more than getting the tattoo was. All that’s left is a little redness that is fading.”
