Tattoo removal by laser treatment is the safest bet

Posted on 02 Jul, 2010

Tattooing your body as a means to express yourself has been practised by people for thousands of years. This practice, after being dormant for quite some time has found some ground amongst the current generation who find tattooing their body with all kinds of designs very trendy. But not all appraise their decisions to be good at a later stage in their lives.

Laser treatment for tattoo removal is the safest and most hygienic way you can get rid of an unwanted tattoo.

Why is laser treatment preferred?
Laser treatment for tattoo removal is considered the best option by renowned surgeons for efficient removal of amateur and professional tattoos. Though laser treatments generally best respond to single coloured tattoos, laser treatment can also treat multi-coloured tattoos. Laser treatment for tattoo removal is usually the only option to get a tattoo removed since tattoos are designed to be a permanent art form on the body.

What is the process?
The process involves using laser beams which hit the tattoo and break down the ink pigment in the skin which can be later absorbed after the fragmentation of the ink particles. The break down of the ink particles is required because it is very difficult for the body’s immune system to remove the ink naturally since they are very large in size. This gradually leads to the disappearance of the tattoo with the ink pigment diminishing from the skin.

Laser tattoo removal is one of the latest technologies developed which help in either permanent removal or blurring or fading of the tattoo. Some colours like black, blue and red are easy to remove while colours like yellow, purple and green can be taxing to get rid of. Certain laser treatments are also designed to target specific colours and will work on removing only that colour, not any other colour. The task of tattoo removal through lasers also depends on the size of the tattoo. Small-sized tattoos are easy to clear compared to larger sized tattoos.
