Are you regretting that tattoo that you got years ago? Or perhaps you have discovered that you are having an allergic reaction to the ink (which happens more often than you might think). Whatever the reason, if you are looking for a way to get rid of a tattoo, Amara Medical Aesthetics can help, with laser tattoo removal.
How are tattoos removed?
Laser tattoo removal is a great solution, and much safer, easier, and more effective than older techniques for getting rid of tattoos. These older techniques, such as microdermabrasion, cryotherapy, and tattoo removal creams, can result in scarring, damage to surrounding tissue, and even infection. These older methods also were not as effective in removing all of the colors in a tattoo.
The laser emits short pulses of light that break up the ink of the tattoo into tiny particles, which are naturally and harmlessly eliminated by the body. Most patients report that it is not painful; it just feels a bit like being poked with a hot needle.
It can be used on tattoos of all sizes and colors and on tattoos that are fairly new or that you’ve had for years. It is very effective, is done as an outpatient procedure, and can be used on a variety of skin types and tones. It is also safe and FDA approved. Although it may take a few treatment sessions to finally be rid of your tattoo, laser tattoo removal takes fewer treatment sessions than other methods. The number of sessions it takes depends on things such as the size of your tattoo, the colors that were used, its location on the body, and how old it is. With each treatment, you’ll see your tattoo fade more and more until it’s gone.
