There are many reasons for wanting a tattoo removed. Today, there are many methods available for removing them. A consultation at Dr. Steven H. Dayan’s office will explain all of the options available to you.
Lasers, a common method of tattoo removal work by targeting the ink with pulses of highly concentrated light. These pulses break the ink into tiny fragments. The body then digested the fragmented ink particles. Removing a tattoo with a laser requires many treatments. A topical anesthetic cream is usually applied to the skin first to alleviate mild discomfort associated with the treatment. Although it is difficult to completely remove all remnants of the tattoo patients who complete a series of treatments can expect to have an area of skin that was once covered by brightly colored attention grabbing designs to a patch of skin that no longer catches the eye of the casual observer.
During your consultation for tattoo removal, the best laser treatment options will be discussed.
