Frequently Asked Questions About Laser Tattoo Removal


People seek tattoo removal for many different reasons. Many employers do not approve of body ink. Or sometimes a tattoo may be tied to a relationship that didn’t last. No matter the reason, Perfect Skin Center understands your requirements and can help you with laser tattoo removal.


What Is Laser Tattoo Removal?

Laser tattoo removal is a permanent tattoo removing technique that makes use of laser pulses to send light energy into your skin. These light pulses are absorbed by the ink pigments present in your skin and cause them to shatter into tiny fragments instantaneously. Your body’s immune system then works to push out these ink fragments over the following weeks. Each treatment makes the ink break down into smaller pieces until no part of the tattoo remains.


Is It Invasive?

Many people are under the misconception that sensations of removals are excruciating. In fact, you can compare the sensation of a laser pulse with a rubber band gently snapping against your skin. You can also request for soothing gels and skin numbing options before you start with the treatment.


Does Laser Tattoo Removal Leave Behind Scarring?

Heat pulses from lasers work to break down color pigments present in the skin. There is no scarring left behind because of a laser. However, your skin might have been scarred while getting a tattoo in the first place because of different colors or multiple layering. In such cases, there is a small risk that a scar might show as the ink fades. However, it all depends on the situation.


Can You Remove Parts Of Tattoos?

You might want to keep a tattoo but remove a part like a name or a small design. Laser tattoo removal can be used to target a specific part of the tattoo to remove pigmentation. It is also possible to simply fade the entire tattoo. This way, you can use an existing tattoo as the backdrop for a new one without completely removing it, if that’s what you desire.

How Long Does The Treatment Take?

The tattoo removal process greatly depends on an individual’s ability to eliminate ink from the body. It also depends on the color, texture, and layers in the tattoo. It takes a series of treatment sessions to remove a tattoo completely.
