Tattoos once considered permanent can now be removed either completely or partially through the various treatments available. However, getting a tattoo made is easy, while bringing it removed is far from easy. It is a painstaking task and a much more painful procedure and, in most cases, leaves visible scars and discolouration.
The various methods involved in tattoo removal are surgical excision salabrasion which involves scrubbing the skin with salt to burn away layers of skin, dermabrasion which consists in using acid to remove the top layers of the skin and laser removal, which is a more standard and effective procedure that reduces scarring and discolouration to a greater extent while in some cases eliminating the tattoo without a trace.
Laser tattoo removal techniques break down the ink in the tattoo to eliminate it. Albeit an expensive remedial process, it causes minimal side effects. Black is the easiest colour to remove, followed by dark blue and red. Coloured tattoo designs are far more challenging to treat, with some requiring selected lasers depending on the pigment colour. The duration of laser removal therapy can take as little as two to four, sitting down to as far as ten sittings depending upon the size and colour of the tattoo.
Laser Treatments for Tattoo Removal:
Laser treatments are a much-preferred choice as they are safe and available in almost every part of the world.
1. First Treatment of Laser Tattoo Removal:
Laser tattoo removals are usually done in a few sittings; the result is seen after the first session. The tattoo has considerably diminished and seems to be on its way to a complete recovery.
2. Almost Complete Laser Tattoo Removal:
Black inks are generally removed more quickly and completely, as seen in this laser procedure. The scarring is minimal, with almost no trace of the tattoo.
3. Half-Sleeve Laser Tattoo Removal:
The half sleeve on a male client has completely been removed. Laser treatment has been skillfully done, given the extensive design of the tattoo. It has left no scarring or discolouration, and the hand looks as good as new.
4. Complete Remove Tattoo by Laser:
“So much for so little” is what this laser tattoo removal is all about. For a small tattoo design like this, it has taken four sittings to remove it altogether. However, it is a job well done with absolutely no trace of the tattoo present.
5. Color Tattoo Removal Laser Treatment:
Colour inks are by far the hardest to remove. Unlike black inks, they tend to leave a certain amount of discolouration. However, specific colours are easier to remove than others. With the bulk of the tattoo gone, a subtle hint of discolouration can be seen.
6. Angel Laser Tattoo Removal:
Seen here is a perfect example of the laser tattoo removal method. Given the size and design of the tattoo, it couldn’t have made for an easy task. Removing such an extensive tattoo can, at most times, take up to 10 sittings. Removing this tattoo is an evident success, with just a faint trace of its former self.
7. Rose Laser Tattoo Removal:
The rose tattoo, a lighter black shade, has been effectively removed with no visible scarring. It is a neat job, and the skin looks fresh with no signs of a tattoo ever having existed.
8. Partial Tattoo Removal by Laser:
This picture shows that partial laser tattoo removal therapies are often successful. The warrior has been erased, with just the tribal pattern left behind. It’s almost as if the warrior never existed.
9. Name Tattoo Laser Removal:
Here is another excellent example of the effects of laser removal, which has left no tattoo trace. Black and red are among the easiest colours to remove; the skin is left untainted and free of any scars.
