Understanding the Tattoo Removal Process

Understanding the tattoo removal process

We’ve all had impulses in life; from accidentally buying too many clothes or insisting you can have a whole pizza to yourself. But what if these decisions were irreversible? Tattoos have become increasingly popular, with modern techniques allowing for even the most previously impossible designs, possible. But the downside to this? Tattoos stay on your skin for as long as you live. Because tattoos are made by inserting ink into the dermis layer of the skin, it cannot be rubbed off or removed by simply rubbing vigorously. It’s no surprise that with time there would be many reasons for a person to consider removing the tattoo. Whatever the reason, technological advances have now made it possible to remove tattoos of any size, design and colour through Q-switch Laser and Ruby Laser techniques.

How does the removal process work?

Depending on what kind of tattoo you have, the number of treatments will vary. For some, a tattoo can be removed in two to four visits and for others; it may take up to as many as ten sessions. Q-switch lasers and Ruby Lasers are built in with different wavelengths depending on which colour is being targeted. It will then smash the ink particle to smaller fragments so the body can disperse it through the healing process. A step at a time, the beam will cull the ink particles until the tattoo is mostly invisible. But because the process of getting a tattoo on the skin is very invasive due to the nature of how they are pigmented onto the skin, so far there has been no present technology which can remove 100% of the tattoo on the skin. However, the expected outcome would be around 95% of ink extraction.

If you’re having thoughts of getting a tattoo removed, book in a free consultation with a removal specialist so they can discuss the options best for you.
