When you look back at old photographs, you may be very different from the person you are today. However, when you have an old tattoo, it may be that you’re keeping something from the past that needs letting go. If you feel that there is a tattoo that is no longer aligned with the person you are today, then why not consider laser tattoo removal? Whether the tattoo is associated with someone who is no longer part of your present life, or perhaps you find a certain design an embarrassment now, or simply not to your tastes. Get back the skin that you love without having to look past any part of it now.
The Advantages of Laser Tattoo Removal
Not many people know about the developments of laser technology these days. Older methods, when laser tattoo removal was first introduced, used photo-thermal energy. This means that the skin around the tattoo was also impacted, and it could be more painful and leave unwanted marks on the skin. Nowadays, only the skin pigmented with ink is targeted, so surrounding skin tissue remains untouched and any discomfort you may experience is minimal.
To delve deeper into how our laser technology has improved since years gone by, we will consider how it works. At Think B4 You Ink, we make use of the Nd:YAG laser, which is regarded as the best in the business across the industry. Rather than the photo-thermal energy that was previously used, this type of laser emits a high energy light that creates heat, which is targeted at the area where the tattoo ink is. Once the area is targeted by the laser, the ink is broken into minute particles, which your skin then absorbs as part of its natural processes.
What to Expect
To ensure you get the best results, multiple sessions of laser removal will usually be required, though the number depends on the size of your tattoo, and it may also depend on the different colours that are present in the tattoo. A minimal number of sessions of laser tattoo removal would typically be four, though it could be as many as twenty sessions. It’s important to let the skin heal between sessions, which is why we carry out the tattoo removal across several sessions.
You can see from our website some examples of what to expect from laser tattoo removal. Once your ink has sufficiently faded, and your skin has fully healed from the treatment, you are welcome to get the area tattooed again, with your skin once again a blank canvas for the ink.
