Understanding Laser Tattoo Removal

In order to get the best results from any cosmetic or medical treatment, it is good for a person to fully understand how the treatment works. If you are living with tattoo regret, it is good for you to understand how tattoo removal with the PiQo4 laser works and how it can benefit you.

There are so many reasons why people live with tattoo regret today. A tattoo may remind them of someone or something they would like to forget. The tattoo may not have been applied correctly, or the tattoo may be fading. No matter the reason, lasers can be used to help individuals get rid of tattoos they no longer want.

How Does the Treatment Work?

It is common for individuals to see their tattoos fade as the years pass. One of the reasons why this happens is because the body is always trying to get rid of the ink. It views the ink as foreign. However, the particles are too large for the body to get rid of completely. Laser tattoo removal is designed to aid of the body in getting rid of that ink. The energy from the laser actually breaks up the ink particles, making it easier for the body to flush the smaller particles away.

Since this is a treatment that actually works with the immune system in the body, it is unrealistic for individuals to think that they can watch their tattoo disappear after just one treatment session. For example, some want a visible tattoo removed before enlisting in the military or before their wedding day. Depending on when a person starts their treatment sessions, they may not be able to completely get rid of the tattoo before the event.

Most people need to visit our office for several treatment sessions. These treatment sessions are scheduled about multiple weeks apart in order for a person to get the best results. Some are able to get rid of an unwanted tattoo with just three or four sessions. However, most people need up to seven or eight sessions in order to completely say goodbye to unwanted ink.

The speed of removal will depend on the person and their tattoo. When you visit our office for your initial consultation, we are going to look at a couple of things to determine how long it will take to get rid of your unwanted tattoo. Your skin type will play a role in how fast a tattoo can be removed. In most cases, individuals with lighter skin are able to say goodbye to unwanted tattoos more quickly than individuals with darker skin.
