Removing Tattoos Permanently In Washington DC With Lasers

A high powered laser beam is used to break up the pigments and inks that have been lodged within the skin. This makes them more susceptible to treatments, like creams, ointments, and even medication, that will work to break up and dispose of these inks.

The idea is that the intense beams of light from these laser beams will only be absorbed by the inks and therefore not cause damage to any of the surrounding tissue.

The color of the tattoo will play a significant role in deciding how effective the cosmetic procedure will be. Black tattoos absorb the light emitted from all laser beams and are therefore the easiest color to work with. Other colors have to be addressed with higher laser beam tendencies to achieve the same effects.woman having tattoo removal done by technician in DC

Before the invention of these high powered lasers, a cover up was the only effective method for a tattoo eraser, and that was temporary. Patients that have attempted to remove tattoos with lightening agents fade away creams or even dermabrasion may find that laser tattoo removal provides the finishing touch that reduces most if not all visible traces of the tattoo.

The entire removal process will require several sessions over an extended period. Although this will vary greatly depending on many factors from skin tones to the size and color of the tattoo, the mean time given for a full laser removal procedure is an entire year with around nine sessions.
