The popularity of tattoos in the United States is rapidly increasing. Nearly 1 in 5 adults has at least one tattoo. With that increase comes an equally rapid expansion of the number of people who are looking for tattoo removal. Reminders of a relationship gone wrong, a realization that the tattoo is not appropriate in a professional setting, poorly executed artwork, or even simply being tired of it are all common reasons for people to seek out tattoo removal procedures.
Laser tattoo removal is the top choice in treatments. With advances in technology, this non-invasive treatment has become more effective and less painful. The laser is safe for use on all skin types, allowing anyone to free themselves from unwanted ink.
During treatment, the laser pulses travel harmlessly through the skin and is absorbed by the ink in the dermal layer. This causes the ink particles to fragment, making it possible for your body’s immune system to process it out. This sophisticated laser can successfully clear all the most popular colors of ink, including black, dark blue, red, yellow, orange, and brown.
Depending on the size of the tattoo, treatment time will usually take no more than 20 minutes. Each session will be spaced 6 weeks apart. In between sessions, you will need to protect and care for the treated area until it has healed. A set of aftercare directions will be given to you at your first visit.
If you want to restore your skin to its natural, clear state, laser tattoo removal is the leading treatment option. To learn more, request a consultation with Dr. Hossein Babaali by calling our office today.
