Do you have a tattoo somewhere on your body that you regret getting? You might be surprised to learn that many people with tattoos experience this feeling. Tattoos can carry meaning or a way to express yourself, but it’s all too common to change your mind about a tattoo and wish it could just go away.
If any of this sounds like you, you might be considering laser tattoo removal. But is it worth getting laser tattoo removal treatment? Do these treatments actually get rid of the tattoo completely? And how does laser tattoo removal work? Let’s take a closer look at how we do laser tattoo removal treatment at Franklin Skin and Laser so you can better understand how it could work for you.
How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?
Laser tattoo removal can take some time, but the results and relief you will experience are well worth it when you no longer have to look at your unwanted tattoo. Laser treatments can effectively remove a tattoo entirely in as little as one year.
We employ state-of-the-art laser technology to easily and safely remove your tattoo. The lasers are highly advanced and will only target the colored ink in your tattoo without damaging the surrounding skin. These lasers will slowly break down the pigments so that your body can safely reabsorb them over time as a natural part of your immune system’s response.
While it was once considered impossible to remove your tattoos, new technology has made it easier than ever. But many wonder why the process takes multiple visits.
The answer lies in your immune system. Tattoo ink is easily absorbed by macrophages in your skin when activated by laser treatment. These special cells hold on to tattoo ink unless you seek cosmetic treatment.
The technology this revolutionary treatment relies on is only getting better, making tattoo removal services more accessible. It also makes tattoo alteration a lot more straightforward. You can remove a small part of the tattoo to make room for an updated look. The process is completely safe and approved by the FDA.
What Does the Process of Removing the Tattoo Look Like?
Before anything else, we will schedule a consultation with you to look at your tattoo and discuss your options. Together, we’ll find the best treatment plan to get optimal results. The treatment plan we recommend for your laser removal tattoo will vary based on where your tattoo is, its size, and which shades are in it.
Note that larger tattoos will take longer than small ones, but even specific colors like greens or pastels can pose a unique challenge. However, our lasers are top-of-the-line and can effectively remove all tattoos, regardless of how many hues there are.
When it is time for your first appointment, we start by cleaning and sterilizing the area the laser will focus on. We may also apply a topical anesthetic if requested or if the tattoo is in a particularly sensitive spot on your body.
We then calibrate the laser to ensure it is working its best for your unique tattoo. A handheld device will guide the laser light over the skin to help break up the ink. When we finish, you’ll receive aftercare instructions and set up any future appointments if necessary. We purposely make these appointments several weeks apart to give the treated skin ample time to heal.
Your regimen is complete when that tattoo is removed to your level of satisfaction. We encourage you to ask questions or follow up after your procedure if you need clarification. Overall, we use proven, effective methods to erase unwanted ink over time in a way that’s accessible and comfortable for everyone.
Is Laser Tattoo Removal Painful?
Anyone familiar with the process of getting a tattoo knows that it can cause some pain and discomfort, so it’s understandable to be concerned that removing one could be as well. One of the main reasons people avoided getting laser removal tattoos in the past was that older methods were more uncomfortable for the client. But is laser tattoo removal painful, even with new methods?
New laser technology has once again changed for the better. We use advanced laser technology that helps minimize pain and discomfort associated with tattoo removal services. You still feel a sensation when the laser touches your skin. But for many, it doesn’t feel like much. And more importantly, it’s nothing compared to what getting the tattoo felt like.
Not only is there minimal discomfort during your treatment, but our advanced technology also makes it easy to jump back into your routine without downtime. Our skilled professionals ensure that the procedure is performed with precision and care, allowing you to resume your daily activities immediately after, with minimal restrictions. While it’s important to protect the treated area from sun exposure and irritants, you can confidently carry on with most of your regular activities. Remember to avoid touching the area as much as you can to promote optimal healing.
We want to ensure you are as comfortable as possible. Let us know how we can make you more confident and secure during your consultation, and we can develop a tailor-made treatment for you.
