Different Lasers For Different Inks

When it comes to removing your tattoos, there are a few options available. One of the best ways to quickly and easily remove an unwanted tattoo is through laser removal. When the laser is applied to the tattoo, it breaks up the pigments in the tattoo. Black tattoos are the easiest to remove since the black color absorbs all light wavelengths. If you have a multi-color tattoo, then different lasers will need to be used.

Now, when it comes to removing tattoos, the treatment for each tattoo is distinctive. This is because each tattoo is different and so is each person. People who’ve unsuccessfully tried to remove their tattoos through other methods may find success by using lasers for removal. Also, laser treatment is usually painless and will keep scarring to a minimum.

Most tattoos will only require 2 – 4 treatments, but some tattoos may take more than ten sessions. To determine how many sessions you need, you should have a consultation done so that a trained professional can properly examine the tattoo and your skin. The main factors that will affect the removal process would include the size and color of the tattoo, your age, type of tattoo, the color of your skin and the depth of the tattoo pigment.

Once you have gotten a consultation and treatment plan, you can then proceed to start the removal process. Before the session starts, protective eye shields will be placed on your eyes to protect them from the laser. Then, the laser’s hand piece will be placed on your skin, and the laser will be activated. This is relatively painless and may feel like a rubber band snapping against your skin. Small tattoos will only need a few laser pulses, but larger ones will require more pulses and more sessions. Once the session is over, an ice pack will be placed over the area, and an antibiotic cream will be provided so you can apply it to your laser treated skin. Then, a bandage will be used to cover the area to protect it from the sun.

In closing, we have just looked at laser tattoo removal and the steps involved in a session. It is an easy and painless treatment that can help you to get rid of an unwanted tattoo.
