The latest progression in tattoo removal treatment is the innovation of the laserlight technology. Laser body art elimination is an advanced therapy designed to completely remove tattoo designs, without leaving marks. Though conventional methods are still used, laserlight body art elimination has produced improved and more fulfilling results for sufferers.
How does it work?
The Laser treatments use your body’s own defense mechanisms to remove the pigment. When the tattoo was applied, your body encapsulated the ink in the skin’s collagen.
Laser energy breaks up the ink pigment into smaller particles that, over a period of weeks, are removed by your body. Larger particles may require several treatments, but the tattoo gradually fades.
Not in the hands of trained, qualified physicians.
How long is a treatment session?
Depending on the size and location of the tattoo, a typical session runs from 10 to
Are there alternatives to this system?
Yes, but none as effective or painless. Surgical removal (excision) is expensive and results in scarring. Other types of lasers use carbon dioxide to physically boil away the skin. Again, this is expensive and leaves a scar. Finally, techniques that use acid or abrasion to remove the tattoo are often painful and may be dangerous.
Will it remove my tattoo completely?
That depends on a number of factors. Tattoos that contain yellow, red, or certain green pigments can be difficult to remove. And large or particularly thick tattoos, usually applied by a professional tattoo artist, can require many treatments for successful removal.
What will it cost?
The cost will depend on the number of treatments required. That, in turn, depends on the size of the tattoo and its location, depth, and color. Professionally applied tattoos tend to contain more ink than amateur versions and usually require a greater number of treatments – hence, higher costs.
