We all change as we get older, and for many people, that means getting their tattoos that no longer feel special or significant to them removed. Laser tattoo removal is the easiest way to get rid of a tattoo that has faded or just doesn’t fit with your style anymore. Perfect Skin Center offers laser tattoo removal, and if you have a tattoo removal appointment coming up, you may be wondering what to expect. Here are some helpful things to know about laser tattoo removal.
How Does It Work?
Laser tattoo removal uses light to break up the ink pigment in your skin. There are different light wavelengths used to treat different colors of tattoos. When the ink in your tattoo is broken up by the laser, your body’s immune system will naturally flush it out over time. This process is a gradual one, and you’ll start to notice your tattoo lightening as it works.
How Will It Feel?
Many people worry that having their tattoo removed is going to be extremely invasive. This isn’t the case, so there’s no need to worry. You may experience some discomfort during the process, but if you can handle having a tattoo put on, you can generally be able to handle having one taken off.
How Long Will It Take?
A common misconception about laser tattoo removal is that it can be done in one session. Once ink has set into your skin, it can take multiple laser sessions to completely remove it. However, once the process is completely done, you will never have to worry about your tattoo again. Our tattoo removal specialist will help you determine exactly how long it will take to remove your specific tattoo, but it usually takes a series of treatment sessions. You will need to give your skin time to heal between sessions, and you can plan the sessions ahead of time to fit with your schedule.
