Tattoos are out. Tattoo removal is in. Millions of people are turning to a local tattoo removal specialist to erase unwanted ink.
Before you decide to get rid of your tattoo, here are four things you should know about laser tattoo removal:
1. Laser tattoo removal does not damage your skin – Your skin will be irritated for a few days after the treatment, but that is common and can be alleviated with prescribed creams and gels. Removing tattoos does not leave any scars on the body, and the tattoo can be eliminated in just a few treatments depending on the complexity of the tattoo.
2. Tattoo removal is painful – If your tattoo requires several treatments scabbing and blistering will happen in the treated area. Scabbing will happen less and less as time goes on.
3. Different types of lasers will be used – One laser removes reds and another removes yellows. Ask your laser tattoo removal specialist what types of laser machines they use.
4. Recovery is quick – After the procedure, skin will be sore in the treated area for 2-3 days. Scabbing should disappear in about a week.
