Understanding Laser Tattoo Removal

Laser tattoo removal treatment is the most effective way of getting rid unwanted tattoos on your body. New developments are discovered each year to make the procedure more safe, efficient, and less painful. Before you begin laser tattoo removal, there are key points you should fully understand concerning the treatment.

  • Lasers are employed with different calibration strengths based on numerous factors. The practitioner will precisely target specific pigments ingrained within your skin. You must ensure that a certified laser technician is performing your treatment. Hyper-pigmentation and other adverse skin effects may occur when the procedure is not properly done.
  • Contrary to popular belief, tattoo inks are not embedded skin deep. Body ink resides in the skin's dermal layer, just beneath the skin's outermost layer. This explains why your tattoo stays intact despite occurrence of dry or flaky skin. The dermis is approximately .08mm to 4.5mm underneath the epidermis or outer layer which gives you an idea of how deep the laser is able to reach in this treatment.
  • The client's immune system plays a vital role in the effectiveness and speed of the treatment. This means when you are a cigarette smoker, you may notice that your result is slower than non-smoker or clients with more fortified immune system. Also, tattoos situated near the heart are likely to fade quicker than the ones on your lower extremities. Thus, it is important to boost your immune system to help speed up the process by exercise, eating healthy and sleeping well.

Laser tattoo removal should be pain-free. But those who are not fully-trained to perform the procedure can make a patient's experience terrifying. Always choose the most reputable tattoo removal specialist in your local area. For those of you in and around the Canton and Brookline areas, contact Dream Tattoo Removal MD today!
