FACTS ABOUT UNWANTED TATTOOS

About 30% of the US population has at least one tattoo and almost 50% of millennials have one. These numbers are staggering when you consider that about 30% of these people are statistically likely to regret their tattoos. For this group, there is now a way to erase their tattoos with a series of highly effective laser treatment.

TATTOO REMOVAL

Laser tattoo removal works by breaking up the pigment colors with a high-intensity laser light beam. Black tattoo pigment absorbs any laser wavelengths, which makes it the easiest to treat. Other colors can only be treated by certain lasers based on the pigment color. This is why it is imperative for patients considering laser tattoo removal to schedule a consultation with a board-certified dermatologist who can assess your tattoo and devise the best removal plan. The deepness of the tattoo will also play a part in the removal process. The size, shape, and color of your tattoo will also determine the number of treatments you might need to remove your tattoo completely.

While laser tattoo removal is uncomfortable, most patients do not require numbing or anesthesia. Depending on the area of your tattoo, you may need to apply a topical anesthetic cream before treatments. While there are other ways to remove tattoos, such as excision, dermabrasion, or salabrasion, lasers are the safest approach. If you have an unwanted tattoo you would like to permanently remove, please contact Kwan Dermatology to schedule a consultation.
