Everyone makes mistakes. Sometimes, it is as simple as leaving the bedroom light on by accident when you leave the room. Sometimes, it is more complicated than that, and long term consequences are possible. Maybe you got a tattoo when you were very young and now regret it. Perhaps your tattoos no longer hold the significance they once did for you. Maybe you have changed career paths, and you worry you will not rise in your industry if you have tattoos. Perhaps the quality of your tattoo has either faded or was never great in the first place. Whatever the reason that you want to remove your tattoo, Men’s Vitality Center in Phoenix can help with our laser tattoo removal services.
Laser tattoo removal is a complicated process. It works by breaking up the ink particles with an intense light beam. Black tattoos are the easiest to remove because black absorbs all laser wavelengths. Over time, your immune system eliminates these pigments from your body. The laser energy is not harmful to your skin, and only targets the area with the tattoo.
The number of required treatments will vary depending on the color and size of your tattoo. The technique used will be determined by the age, size, and type of tattoo you have, as well as your skin color. The doctor will start by giving you a protective eye shield and prepping your skin. Then, he will test the skin to determine the best course of treatment. After this, the doctor will press the laser device to your tattoo and send pulses of the laser into your skin. Laser tattoo removal is generally a painful process; patients often describe the feeling as a burning sensation. After each treatment, your tattoo will appear lighter and lighter. You can reduce the risk of scarring and infection by keeping the area clean, dry, and covered.
You made a mistake, but it doesn’t have to be the end of the world. When you need laser tattoo removal, contact Men’s Vitality Center in Phoenix to schedule an appointment.
