What Tattoo Removal Methods are Available to You?
Do you have buyer’s remorse when it comes to your tattoo? A lot of individuals come to loathe their tattoo, for several reasons. These reasons could include a failed relationship, where the ink serves as a constant reminder of the emotional pain. Many people get tattoos in their earlier years, as part of a gang, in some instances, and now as adults, are seeking a fresh start. May be the tattoo artist failed to do a proper job, and you’re now looking for ways to correct or erase the mess.
Even though the ink appears to be permanent, fortunately there are many ways to take out unwanted tattoos.
Here are some of the best tattoo removal methods available:
- Laser Removal – this is one of the most popular and effective ways for removing tattoos. The laser is directed at the ink and then taken out bit-by-bit. It takes several rounds of treatments to complete the entire process, which takes roughly one year, and it’s performed by certified specialists, including dermatologists and cosmetologists. Even though laser tattoo removal is highly effective, one of the downsides is that many patients complain about the discomfort experienced during treatment.
What’s the laser tattoo removal cost? The price depends on your geographic location, the size of your tattoo, and your surgeon.
- Intense Pulsed Light Therapy – is another effective option for erasing tattoos. It’s a similar process to laser therapy, only an intense light wave is used to break up the ink. This therapy can be fairly expensive, since most providers charge per pulse, and several are required for each session.
- Excision – is one choice you could use, but the downside is that the skin is taken out and scarring is typical.
- Dermabrasion – just as how microdermabrasion sloughs away the outer layer of the skin, dermabrasion works to some extent where tattoo removals are concerned.
In addition to these treatment options, over-the-counter creams and gels are available to all, but they’re not really effective for giving you the clear results you need.
Why Is PicoSure Better?
PicoSure is a type of laser tattoo removal treatment, but rather than using heat, it combines pulses, to divvy up the ink on a molecular level. The result is that our body’s immune system works more rapidly to dispose of these particles.
PicoSure only requires roughly 10 sessions, lasting no more than five minutes each. The recovery time too, is comparatively less.
The Skin and Vein Center offers new and revolutionary PicoSure treatments for tattoo removal and acne scars. In addition, financing options may be available through CareCredit. To learn more, and to find out about our other procedures that we offer, call 800-400-VEIN.
