When most people get a tattoo, they love the idea of it being with them forever. Unfortunately, when their circumstances change or they no longer feel the same attachment to the idea of their tattoo, they start regretting it. If you would like to ease your regrets, tattoo removal may be the right option for you.
Why You May Regret Your Tattoo
Does your tattoo no longer carry the significance it once did? It is common for individuals to get the name of a boyfriend or girlfriend tattooed onto their body. They are absolutely sure they will be with that person forever. Unfortunately, circumstances change and the person they thought they would love forever is now someone who they would like to erase from their memory. Some people are absolutely sure about what they want tattooed onto their body, but their tattoo artist does not live up to their expectations. They may misspell a word or may not create the image in the way the individual was hoping for. This can lead to tattoo regret.
Nothing can be done to stop the aging process. And while a person may do all they can to keep their body as youthful as possible and protect their beloved tattoos, tattoos fade and a person’s skin starts to sag as they age. These things can make a tattoo that was once seen as attractive now look stretched and faded.
How Our Treatments Work
When lasers are used for tattoo removal, the energy from the laser will break up the particles of ink under the skin. This allows the body to naturally remove them more easily. This is the simplest way to explain how the treatment works. However, there is more to it. The types of lasers that are used will depend on the color of ink that is under the skin and other factors.
The age of your tattoo and the color of ink that is used in the tattoo will determine how long it takes for you to get rid of it. You will likely need multiple tattoo removal sessions to achieve the optimal result. When you visit us for your initial consultation, we will be able to give you a good idea of how many treatments you may need after we examine your tattoo.
