Remove Unwanted Body Art: “Erase Regret”
Laser tattoo removal in Flemington is a method of effective and safe tattoo ink removal. Tattoos have been around for years, but until recent decades, removing them was very difficult. Now, with the help of Q-Switched Yag Laser treatments, you can drastically reduce the visibility of your tattoos or remove them altogether.
How Effective Is Laser Tattoo Removal?
The extent to which the visibility of your tattoo is affected by laser tattoo removal is dependent on various factors. These include:
- The area where the tattoo is located, since it may be near sensitive areas such as the eyes, lips, and nose
- Layers of tattoo, meaning whether multiple layers of tattoo pigment are overlayed on the same area
- Color of the pigment, since it’s easiest to remove blue, grey, and black pigments
How It Works
In laser-based tattoo removal, photoselective thermolysis is used to target the tattoo pigments and remove them. Q-Switched Yag Laser tattoo removal in particular has been found to be effective and only creates minor side effects, if any.
In Q-Switched Yag Laser tattoo removal, high-intensity beams at 1064 nm are used. Our Q-Switched Yag Laser breaks up tattoo ink into tiny particles, removing what was supposed to be permanent. The tiny particles are gradually filtered out by the body. This tattoo-removal process restores the natural color and pigment of the skin.
Before the procedure, you will have to make an appointment for a consultation. During this, your overall health and complete medical history will be discussed. You should express your expectations from the procedure as clearly as possible. You will be given directions regarding post-treatment care.
Q-Switched Yag Laser tattoo removal is not recommended for lactating or pregnant women.
The Treatment Process
At the start of the laser tattoo removal session, local anesthesia is used to numb the treatment area in order to avoid any pain or discomfort. The machine is calibrated to address your tattoo, and then the handpiece is used to apply laser energy to the pigments.
You will require multiple sittings to completely eliminate the tattoo altogether, since one sitting isn’t usually enough to make the tattoo completely fade away. The number of sittings you’ll require depends on the location, size, shape, and intensity of pigments in your tattoo.
To reduce the chance of infections and scarring damage, you must carefully follow the prescribed care regimen. Application of antibacterial ointment will be necessary. Temporary itching, swelling, and blistering may be experienced. Apply cool compresses as needed. Make sure to wear sunscreen with a proper SPF for several months after treatment.
Laser Tattoo Removal Cost
The price of your laser tattoo removal will depend on several factors. The number of treatment sessions needed to achieve your desired results will affect overall cost, as will the size, location, and pigments of your tattoo.
