What is ‘tattoo regret,’ and what can I do about it?
Recent studies have shown that about a quarter of the United States population has at least one tattoo. While some people are completely content with their tattoos, other people experience tattoo regret. Many people having experienced this regret have undergone some form of tattoo removal treatment, or at least have thought about getting their ink removed or lightened.
Tattoo regret can surface for any number of reasons – most commonly, people may experience a change in lifestyle, taste, or fashion – and sometimes, they simply don’t like the tattoo or the idea of having tattoos anymore. Regardless of what the reasons may be, the unifying factor is the search for a safe and effective tattoo removal method to improve happiness and confidence with one’s own mind and body.

What is laser tattoo removal?
Independent research studies have shown that laser tattoo removal is the fastest, safest, and most effective way to remove undesired tattoos. This is because, in comparison to other tattoo removal technologies, it is the least likely to damage your skin during the treatment process. Other attempts at removal such as tattoo removal cream, microdermabrasion, and cryotherapy are not as effective, and they come with a higher likelihood of post-treatment scarring.
Removing your undesired tattoo most effectively requires the ideal combination and integration of technologies – the laser treatment must produce the right wavelengths, the right pulse durations, and the right energy levels.
How does laser tattoo removal work?
Laser technology produces short pulses of light which penetrate the upper layers of the skin to reach the embedded ink. The tattoo ink is disintegrated into smaller particles through the absorption of light into the skin’s pigment. These smaller, broken up particles are then able to be removed by the body’s immune system. Externally, you will be able to see your tattoo gradually fading – it will become lighter and lighter after every appointment. After your procedure, you will be presented with a customized treatment plan as well as a follow-up. Amara’s tattoo removal methods leave no procedure-related scarring or damage.

How long will it be before I see results?
Several visits are usually required in order to remove the ink completely. After each treatment, the tattoo will fade, until eventually complete removal is achieved. Since each tattoo is different, the tattoo removal process length varies and is dependent on a variety of factors. These factors include the size of the tattoo, the location of the tattoo on the body, the age of the tattoo, quality of the ink that was used, and color of the ink(s) used.
Since tattoos can be comprised of a diverse plethora of colors and particle sizes, the removal of tattoos presents an exacting challenge. Amara uses lasers with the ability to target and treat at depth, with the production of multiple wavelengths delivered at high power.
What kind of lasers does Amara use in tattoo removal treatments?
Tattoo removal lasers are extremely specialized. A tattoo removal laser is devised exclusively to penetrate deeply enough into the skin to disintegrate the color particles of the ink.
