LASER TATTOO REMOVAL


 


 


It seemed like a good idea at the time. But people change, and the old tattoo just doesn't fit with your new image. Fortunately, Laser Tattoo Removal System could make your tattoo a thing of the past. The system gives you non-invasive advantages of laser treatment; plus, better results than any other methods . 


 


The Laser treatments use your body's own defense mechanisms to remove the pigment. When the tattoo was applied, your body encapsulated the ink in the skin's collagen. 




Laser energy breaks up the ink pigment into smaller particles that, over a period of weeks, are removed by your body. Larger particles may require several treatments, but the tattoo gradually fades. 



 



It is absolutely safe in the hands of trained, qualified dermatologists.





Depending on the size and location of the tattoo, a typical session runs from 10 to 30 minutes.




There are alternatives to laser removal  but none as effective or painless. Surgical removal (excision) is expensive and results in scarring. Other types of lasers use carbon dioxide to physically boil away the skin. Again, this is expensive and leaves a scar. Finally, techniques that use acid or abrasion to remove the tattoo are often painful and may be dangerous. 


 


COMPLETE TATTOO REMOVAL depends on a number of factors. Tattoos that contain yellow, red, or certain green pigments can be difficult to remove. And large or particularly thick tattoos, usually applied by a professional tattoo artist, can require many treatments for successful removal. 


 


THE COST will depend on the number of treatments required. That, in turn, depends on the size of the tattoo and its location, depth, and color. Professionally applied tattoos tend to contain more ink than amateur versions and usually require a greater number of treatments.
