Are you reconsidering your tattoo? Here’s everything you need to know about tattoo removal treatments.
Do you have a tattoo that once seemed like a great idea but has now become a massive source of regret? Or did it not turn out as planned? There are a variety of reasons why people consider tattoo removal.
We often hear that tattoos are forever. But if you have a tattoo that you are not particularly fond of, all is not lost. Many advanced laser treatments are available on the market that can help you get rid of unwanted tattoos. Laser tattoo removal at ISAAC Luxe is a brilliant option that can safely remove your tattoo with faster fading and flawless results.
What is laser tattoo removal?
Laser tattoo removal works by using a high-intensity light beam to break down the pigment from your tattoo. These particles are then broken down into smaller particles so the immune system can filter and eliminate them from the body. Since tattoo pigments have specific light absorption spectra, a tattoo laser emits adequate energy within the given absorption spectrum of the pigment to provide the best results.
Q-Switch laser at ISAAC Luxe is an effective way of removing dark spots without any side effects. This laser tattoo removal treatment uses a unique mechanism where an invisible beam of light specifically targets the tattoo pigment in your skin. Since the beam is focused only on the targeted area, it safely breaks down the pigment particles without damaging the surrounding tissue. Another advantage? It uses no harsh chemicals or techniques that leave the skin feeling too sensitive and irritated.
Laser tattoo removal is a quick procedure and takes an average of 15 minutes. The treatment involves minimal pain. The sensation of the laser beam hitting is comparable to that of an elastic band snapping against your skin—quick and then over.
Are there any side effects of laser tattoo removal?
While laser tattoo removal is a safe procedure, it can cause a few side effects, like:
- Mild redness
- Slight sensitivity to touch
There are a few tips that you should follow in order to avoid any complications. After each session, stay away from the sun, heat, and swimming for at least ten days. It is also recommended to refrain from exercising, using saunas, or taking really hot showers for three to five days after the tattoo removal procedure.
How many laser tattoo removal sessions are required?
Your tattoo’s rate and amount of fading will depend on a number of factors, including the colour, size, and age of your tattoo. Black tattoo pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths, making it the easiest colour to treat. Older tattoos are easier to remove than more recent ones. Colours with a strong yellow undertone may cause issues because yellow is one of the most difficult colours to remove with a laser. The placement of your tattoo also influences the removal process. Tattoos on the wrist, hand, finger, ankle, foot, or toe typically fade more slowly and need more tattoo removal sessions.
