Successful Laser Tattoo Removal

How To Have A Successful Laser Tattoo Removal

With advances in laser technology, tattoos are not necessarily a lifelong commitment that they used to be. However, this does not mean that laser tattoo removal works the same or every tattoo. In order to have realistic expectations about how efficient your laser treatment is to remove your tattoo, you must take into account the issues described here

Regardless of the tattoo finish time, some colours will be easier to remove than others. The lasers illuminate the contrast, so the darker the ink, the easier it is to remove it. It is difficult to remove reds and yellows and may require more tattoos than other colours. Furthermore, multicoloured tattoos will always require multiple treatment sessions because different ink colours respond to different laser wavelengths.

Another issue to consider is placing the tattoo on the body. Areas with more body fat, such as arms, buttocks, legs or chest, tend to have better removal results than areas with lower fat, such as ankles or fingers. In addition, people who are healthy and have strong immune systems often get better results. The person’s health can be translated into fewer laser sessions. Most unwanted side effects associated with laser tattoo removal usually come as one must pass through a large number of sessions. Thus, the less the need for sessions, the less likely there are any side effects.

Maintaining a healthy weight can also improve the quality of the removal process. Some professionals have recommended that if possible, one must lose any extra weight before removing the tattoo. Smoking has also been found to reduce the quality of laser treatment results, so it is also recommended for people to stop smoking before starting treatment.

Before treatment, one should be well hydrated and sleep the whole night. The use of a local anaesthetic agent can help reduce pain, but oral painkillers such as ibuprofen are not recommended. The treatment clinic should have the option of pain management.

After treatment, one must avoid heat to the treated area. This means not to take a hot bath within 24 hours after the session and avoid direct exposure to the sun for several days afterwards. The more accurately the area is treated between laser sessions, the better the response
