A tattoo appears to be on the skin, but this is misleading. It’s really a series of ink deposits within the skin—designed with the intention that it is to last forever. However, today, it is becoming commonplace for people to seek out tattoo removal. Laser tattoo removal Albuquerque is nothing new, but early methods carried a high risk of scaring. They were also very painful and not very effective. When Q-Switched lasers debuted, the process improved tremendously. Physicians could now eliminate most tattoos with high success rate and a very small risk of scarring. The Q-Switched lasers that use PhotoAcoustic energy are the premier lasers for Albuquerque tattoo removal. They have a very strong history of being both safe and effective.
How Does the Laser Remove the Tattoo?
Light energy. Lasers target tattoos with certain light wavelengths. In fact, did you know that a separate wavelength is needed for each ink color? The popular Q-Switched lasers use PhotoAccoustic energy technology to safely penetrate the skin and target the tattoo’s ink. How does this work? The light energy vibrates the ink and shatters it—literally—into tiny micro particles that are, eventually, eliminated through the body’s natural processes. The laser emits a pretty precise beam, guaranteeing the physician can trace the tattoo and not damage the surrounding skin.
How Many Laser Treatments are Needed to Remove a Tattoo?
This depends on the individual tattoo in question, but, yes, it will take more than one session. A professional tattoo could take between 6 and 15 treatments, while an amateur tattoo could be eliminated in 4 or 5. Treatments are spaced a month or two apart. The overall number of treatments depends on many variables, such as the size of the tattoo, the amount and type of ink used, and the depth of the ink in the skin. The location of the tattoo affects clearance rates, and the cost varies according to geographical region and physician.
When seeking laser tattoo removal Albuquerque – Will the Tattoo Completely Disappear?
After initial treatments, the skin will whiten around the treated area. Eventually the tattoo will fade, and the skin will return to normal. Total elimination isn’t possible, but lasers will eliminate about 95% of the tattoo.
Can all Lasers Remove Colored Tattoos?
This depends on the amount of wavelengths present in the laser. Most lasers have at least two wavelengths to target blue/black inks and red inks. More advanced lasers have four wavelengths and can target most multi-colored tattoos. Most colors can be removed with little issue, with the exception of green, light blue and yellow. Additional treatments are often required on tattoos with those colors.
I’m Tough Enough for a Tattoo, But…I Gotta Ask, Does Laser Tattoo Removal Hurt?
No more than the tattoo itself. The laser’s light energy pulsates, and some patients liken it to being snapped with a rubber band or poked lightly with a needle, followed by a warming of the skin. Most doctors will cool the skin first, with ice or cold air. There are also topical anesthetic creams available.
What Type of Post-Treatment Care is Necessary?
Your physician will apply antibacterial ointment and a bandage after treatment. You MUST KEEP THE AREA CLEAN. Follow your doctor’s orders for post-treatment recovery. You can shower—the next day—though the treated area should not be scrubbed. If a scab should form, do not pick or scratch it.
