Chris Brown Says Goodbye to Old Tattoo with Laser Tattoo Removal Treatments

Chris Brown is removing his “Karrueche” tattoo–the name of his ex girlfriend–off his body, just for Rihanna. Speculations say that he’s removing the tattoo in order to prove his devotion to Rihanna while erasing the past. This just goes to show that tattooing anyone’s name on your body is never a good idea.

It’s most likely that Chris will have to go through a series of laser tattoo removal treatments to completely remove the tattoo, as a tattoo cannot be fully removed in one session. The average is between 4-8 sessions, but it all depends on the tattoo’s ink and color. The tattoo removal process works by emitting cosmetic laser energy onto the tattoo so that it is absorbed into the ink. From there, the ink is broken into fragments and flushed out through the body’s lymphatic system. Unlike creams, this may tend to penetrate deeper and can result in very effective results.

Many Hollywood celebrities, including Miley Cyrus, Kat Von D, Lea Michele, and Eva Longoria, have experienced laser tattoo removal for unwanted tattoos. However, this treatment doesn’t come with a Hollywood price tag. At National Laser Institute, you can receive your laser tattoo removal treatment starting at just $50.

Laser tattoo removal treatments are a once-a-month process for removing tattoos. The entire appointment time takes between 5-15 minutes, depending on the size of the tattoo. In other words, it’s an in and out procedure that requires no downtime. The only thing you need to be sure of is to keep that tattoo out of the sun.

National Laser Institute is the leader in the medical aesthetics industry and has earned many outstanding reviews. Expert laser technicians perform quality laser tattoo removal treatments within a luxury medical spa.

New Tattoo Removal Laser May Removal Tattoos Faster Than Before

It typically takes a client between 4-8 separate treatments to completely remove tattoo ink from the skin. However, a recent report has shown that laser tattoo removal may be able to remove unwanted ink faster than before. One study has used a Q-switched YAG laser on the tattoo four times a day in twenty minute intervals. Another report has used a combination of a fractional laser–typically used for removing wrinkles–with laser tattoo removal equipment for ideal results. This study has shown as much as 50% removal of ink in one session. A third study reports two treatments of laser tattoo removal in one day using different laser wavelengths.

If these treatments become regulated and safe to use on client’s unwanted tattoos, laser tattoo removal may be able to remove tattoos in as much as half of the time it does now. Laser tattoo removal treatments are already a revolutionary process when it comes to removing tattoos. Unlike creams, laser tattoo removal works by emitting cosmetic laser energy onto the skin and into the tattoo’s pigment. This energy is able to break up the ink into microscopic fractions, which then is flushed out through the body’s lymphatic system.

Laser tattoo removal treatments can be performed almost anywhere on the skin. The entire treatment process can be completed in under 10 minutes, depending on the size of your tattoo.

“The biggest drawbacks to laser tattoo removal are the time, expense, pain, and healing involved,” said Dr. Kauvar. “The newest techniques being investigated are designed to reduce the number of treatment sessions required to remove a tattoo, which should make the process more appealing.”

National Laser Institute offers laser tattoo removal treatments performed by expert laser technicians and medical professionals within a luxury medical spa setting.

Laser Tattoo Removal Season

Laser tattoo removal has become increasingly popular in the last several years. What some people don’t realize, though, is that laser tattoo removal has seasons. This is because after a laser tattoo removal treatment, the client cannot be exposed to the sun for several days. So, naturally, the best season to receive laser tattoo removal is in the fall and winter seasons.

Throughout the fall and winter, clients protect themselves from not only the cold, but from sun exposure as well. They do this by wearing jackets, long sleeves, and jeans. For them, it’s easier to remember to stay out of the sun if that treated area is already going to be covered up. Plus, these cold months give clients the opportunity to receive consecutive laser treatments within the fall and winter seasons.

Laser tattoo removal works by using a cosmetic laser to target the ink within the tattoo. This cosmetic energy and light is absorbed by the pigment, which breaks it up into small fragments that are then flushed out through the body’s lymphatic system. Laser treatments are unlike creams, because creams only remove the pigment on the dermal layer, and tattoos must be penetrated on both the dermal and epidermal layer to break up the pigment. Usually, clients need between 4-8 treatments for laser tattoo removal, and this can depend on size, color, and how many years the tattoo has been on the skin’s surface.

The holiday season is the perfect time to start your laser tattoo removal treatment regimen. If you’ve been meaning to rid that unwanted tattoo, give yourself the give of clear, flawless skin. We recommend National Laser Institute. They are the leader in the medical aesthetics industry and have earned many outstanding reviews as well as an A+ rating at the BBB. Professional laser technicians consult with their clients before even thinking about touching them with a laser in order to gain a sense of their skin type, skin care concerns, and skin care goals.

Did you know?

There is less probability for infection with Laser Liposuction because a smaller incision is required for the procedure. Also blood loss, a common complication with traditional liposuction, is minimal since the procedure is more accurate at targeting fat, and, therefore, does less damage to surrounding blood vessels. Any blood that does leak from a damaged vessel will evaporate from the heat of the laser.
