There are a lot of reasons why people choose to get a tattoo. Regardless of the reason why you got your tattoo in the first place, if you are reading this, it is likely because you are interested in having it removed. If you are dealing with tattoo regret, know that you are not alone. In fact, research suggests that at least 30 percent of people who have tattoos want to get it removed at one point or another. Laser tattoo removal can help you say goodbye to your tattoo for good.
There are many reasons why someone might turn to tattoo removal. It could be that the tattoo they chose does not hold the same meaning it once did. The tattoo itself may have been poorly executed. The artist might not have been as good as you had expected, or they might have made a mistake. Maybe you wanted to have the name of a person you love written on a place where you could see it, but they misspelled the name. Obviously, you’re going to want to get rid of that tattoo.
Another reason why people look to have their tattoos removed is because the tattoo itself has faded. Maybe the tattoo looked nice and sharp when you first got it, but now, it is faded and blurred. A blurry tattoo does not look anywhere as nice as a sharp and vibrant one. If you would rather get rid of it than retouch it, laser tattoo removal can help.
Maybe you just landed your dream job. However, it’s in a field where tattoos are seen as unprofessional, so it’s time to eliminate your old ink with laser tattoo removal.
The list of reasons why someone would want to get rid of their tattoo goes on and on. Regardless of your personal reason, you can finally say goodbye to yours with laser tattoo removal. We will let you know exactly what to expect when you come in for your consultation.
In general, we begin treatment by cleansing and numbing the area. The laser will then target the pigment in your tattoo, forcing it to break apart. The number of treatments you will need will depend on factors such as your skin type and the size and colors of your tattoo. Many patients see best results after multiple treatments, each spaced about 4-6 weeks apart.
