Nearly one-third of people in the United States have at least 1 tattoo — about 25% of them say they regret getting it. If you’d like to eliminate your tattoos, the team at Strax Rejuvenation in Lauderhill, Florida, want you to know that they offer state-of-the-art laser tattoo removal that effectively gets rid of all ink colors with fewer treatments. Call the office today to learn more about this treatment.
Highly precise lasers, especially short-pulse lasers, can significantly lighten or entirely remove tattoos. Lasers can remove tattoos without harming the surrounding skin because they use a specific wavelength that’s only absorbed by the colored ink particles. As the ink particles absorb the laser energy, they heat up and break into tiny pieces that are naturally eliminated by the body.
With today’s advanced lasers, tattoos can be removed with fewer treatments. However, you’ll still need several treatments, and larger, darker tattoos may require more treatments than smaller, lighter ones. When you get a tattoo, the tattoo artist layers the ink. A laser can’t safely break down all of the layers in 1 session. You’ll also need to take some time between treatments to give your skin time to heal and to give your body time to flush out the ink.
The way you experience laser tattoo removal depends on the size of the tattoo, the length of the removal process, and your individual sensitivity to the laser. Some people say that the laser feels like a slight pin-prick, but your experience may be better or worse. Most patients don’t need an anesthetic, but your doctor at Strax Rejuvenation will talk with you about topical numbing creams to ensure your comfort during the procedure.
Expect to have some redness and swelling following the treatment. The doctor may tell you to apply antibiotic ointment for a few days, as well as a moisturizer. It’s also essential to protect the treated area from the sun for several months.
Advancements in laser technology have made it easier to remove tattoos, even ink colors that were once hard to remove, but the overall results often depend on the expertise of the person performing the tattoo removal procedure.
The quality of the tattoo can determine how difficult it is to remove it, even with the latest lasers. The ink from professionally applied tattoos penetrates to uniform levels, which makes them easier to remove. When the ink penetrates to uneven depths, removal usually requires more sessions.
At Strax Rejuvenation, you can count on the experience of the staff. They know how to use lasers to target different colors of ink and to effectively remove multiple layers. Don’t hesitate to contact the office to schedule an appointment — the doctors examine your tattoo and develop a treatment schedule so you can plan for the number of sessions needed to remove your tattoo.
