Tattoo removals are sometimes necessary depending on one’s preferences. Sometimes people just made a mistake and want to have their tattoos removed. Others need to erase painful memories invoked by having the tattoo while other consider it unaesthetic due to the fading of the ink, age or weight loss which can cause its distortion. Whatever your reasons may be, there would always be certain procedures that could be done to have it removed.
Laser is the most common tattoo removal procedure. The laser light, which is high-intensity light beam, would remove it by coming in contact with the ink and breaking it up into smaller particles. More laser treatments would also mean better erasure. However, a major drawback is that it could lead to scarring of the skin when the treatment is overdone. Also, this procedure is quite expensive from $250 to as much as $1000 per session.
Dermabrasion is another procedure that is used for tattoo removal. A freezing solution is applied into the skin and the area is deeply abraded with a sanding tool causing the skin to exfoliate and reveal fresh new skin. The skin is rubbed off along with the peeled skin making the fresh skin appear tender and red in color. This is, however, not indicated for those who are prone to scarring as well as hyper and hypo-pigmentation.
3) Surgical Excision
Surgical excision could also be indicated for small one. This is probably the best removal technique that could be used for small designs. However, it is not that successful when done on larger ones. This involves the surgical removal of this and stitching the skin closed afterwards. In addition, the results are immediate and the removal is usually complete. Plus it is quite inexpensive as compared to other procedures and does not require several treatments or sessions. Some disadvantages that come with it are the possible scarring, the possible need for an anesthesia and a skin graft for larger one.
Creams can also be used as a non-laser and non-surgical approach to remove. However, results are either not guaranteed and if successful, would require long periods of time before it can be erased.
There are various options for tattoo removal. But the best thing that can be done before anything else is to consult a professional and seek their advice on possible suggestions they might have. A visit to a reputable tattoo parlor could give you an idea on how tattoos are removed. In the end, the choice would always be yours.
