So, you made a mistake in judgment. You got tattooed, and wish you hadn't. The good news is that your tattoo doesn't have to be a permanent reminder of your spring break trip or an old flame. With laser tattoo removal, you can effectively erase the character drawn onto your upper left arm.
But before you visit the office for the course of treatment, there are a few things you should know. A professional dermatologist or cosmetic surgery center should be the only people you consider for the job because it is in reality a medical procedure and has to be done accurately.
Your family medical professional might be able to suggest someone to do the procedure in the area. So what can you anticipate once you find the appropriate facility? Well, no two tats are alike. Specific to the tattoo and the person having the procedure, the process will vary from person to person.
Based on your type of skin, the size of the tattoo, and whether you used colored tattoo ink, it's possible that you may require more than one treatment. Remember that darker inks have a tendency to fade better than yellows and greens so depending on what you have, tattoos with various colors will react differently with the procedure.
It could take multiple visits even with a very simple tattoo. When you plan a consultation with the technician, be sure to inquire how many medical treatments they think you may need to eliminate your tattoo.
