Tattoo Regret?

Tattoos often seem like a smart idea in the moment, but tattoo regret is a very common occurrence. Tattoos used to be considered permanent. The majority of people with tattoos wish they did not have them. In the past, attempts to remove tattoos produced less than impressive results.

However, at New Touch Skin Care clinic, the advent of PicoCare 450 lasers has allowed the removal of most tattoos, with brilliant results. Today’s lasers can get rid of tattoos more safely and effectively, including removing tattoo ink with fewer treatments and treating ink colors that were once difficult to remove.

What is tattoo removal?

A tattoo is a permanent form of body modification where an artist injects inks and pigments (dyes) into your skin. Tattoo removal is a procedure to remove this permanent ink from your body. Normally, your immune system works to remove foreign particles from your body, but ink particles are too big for your immune system to remove, which is why they’re permanent. Tattoo removal can be a complex process that can take several sessions to complete. This happens because permanent ink granules from professional tattoos exist below your skin’s surface.

How does laser tattoo removal works?

Lasers are focused beams of light directed onto your skin. Lasers heat up the ink particles in your skin to break them down into smaller particles, which are easier for your immune system to remove. It can take multiple laser therapy sessions to remove a tattoo.

What is the process of a laser tattoo removal procedure?

Before your procedure, you’ll meet with dermatologist who’ll evaluate your situation and inform you about the process. They’ll evaluate your skin and may ask questions that could include:

  • When did you get this tattoo?
  • Have you undergone any prior tattoo removal procedures?
  • Was the tattoo was applied by an amateur or professional?

Our dermatologist will also measure the size of your tattoo and we might take a photo of it to record the results of your procedure. Our dermatologist will choose a treatment plan based on the type and color of ink in the tattoo and the depth of the tattoo pigment in your body.

During a laser tattoo removal procedure, you can expect the following to happen:

  • You’ll wear protective eye shields.
  • Your skin’s reaction to the laser is tested to determine the most effective energy for the treatment.
  • The treatment itself consists of placing a hand piece against the surface of your skin and activating the laser light pulse over the surface of the tattoo.

Smaller tattoos require fewer pulses and larger ones require more. In either case, the tattoo requires multiple visits for treatments. After each treatment, the tattoo should become lighter.

After each session, our dermatologist will give you instructions about how to take care of your skin.

Is tattoo removal safe?

Yes, tattoo removal is safe if you get your tattoo removed by a licensed or certified healthcare provider who specializes in tattoo removal.

Thanks to our PicoCare 450 technology, the treatment of tattoos with laser systems has become much more effective, with lower risk of scarring.
