Laser tattoo removal is a procedure that removes the tattoo ink from the human skin using specialized lasers.
With a series of treatments, the tattoo is removed layer by layer. Basically, the laser fragments the tattoo ink and your body removes these tiny fragments from the skin tissues itself. Although this may sound too simple and too good to be true, read this article to know about it in detail.
The tattoo ink that your tattoo artist uses is heavy metal. A tattoo machine is nothing but a sterilized set of needles that injects the heavy metal inside the skin surface and in the inner layer, the dermis. Your tattoo artist uses a different kind of heavy metal depending on the color of the ink needed. However, since this is a foreign particle, your immune system will immediately try to remove it from the body. Since the heavy metal particles are greater than the tiny white blood cells, they can’t be removed right away. Nevertheless, your body will gradually work to remove it. This is why a tattoo appears less sharp and faded with age.
But what if we could break the heavy metals into even smaller fragments so that your white blood cells can easily deal with them and remove them from the body?
This is exactly what is done in the tattoo removal procedure. The intense, fast-pulsed laser beams break these metal particles and the body’s white blood cells carry them to the liver, from where it is sent to the excretory system.
Talking about whether tattoo removal is going to hurt, it was painful to get a tattoo in the first place. Thus, some amount of pain is going to be there even during the laser tattoo removal procedure. But calm down, our clients have said that the procedure is actually less painful than what they had expected.
Note that the reason why we use laser is to remove the ink that is INSIDE the skin without actually damaging the skin. Thus, the laser is designed to have maximum impact on the underlying laser ink but not on the skin. Thus, the pain felt is purely mechanical, caused by the breakdown of the tiny ink fragments inside your skin. The type of laser used during laser tattoo removal is 100% safe to the human skin. Laser tattoo removal is a medically-approved procedure and one of the most common cosmetic procedures worldwide.
Not all tattoos are the same. There are a few things that can go wrong in this procedure, and we will be brutally honest about them.
First, the efficacy of the process depends on the type of ink used. Laser tattoo removal works best on black ink tattoos. This is because the color black absorbs all the wavelengths of the laser, hence absorbing more energy with each pulse. Meanwhile, light-colored tattoos will not absorb all the energy of the laser pulse and hence require more sessions. In some cases, light-colored tattoos may not be removed completely. Yes, there are limitations to everything.
Second, you may not know it, but your skin might have been hurt at the time when you got a tattoo. Now, the scar wasn’t visible because it was covered by the tattoo itself. When we remove that tattoo, the scar might be visible. Now, this isn’t a scar caused by the laser tattoo removal process. The process just made it more visible. Also, due to the natural healing process, some amount of swelling is common after the laser tattoo removal procedure. If anything feels off, just consult your service provider.
Finally, the efficacy also depends on how deep the ink penetrated while going in, your skin tone, and various other factors. However, all these possible consequences can be handled by an experienced service provider. This is why it is extremely important to choose your tattoo removal clinic wisely.
There isn’t any serious issue to consider before the tattoo removal procedure. However, some things might just make the procedure easier and more effective. According to Smart Beauty Guide,
a) Wear sunscreen and/or avoid the sun
b) Avoid pre-treatment shaving, waxing, or exfoliating
c) Avoid tanning and spray tans several weeks prior to your procedure
d) Stop smoking at least six weeks before undergoing treatment to promote better healing
e) Avoid taking aspirin, certain anti-inflammatory drugs, and some herbal medications that can cause increased bleeding
f) Regardless of the type of treatment to be performed, hydration is very important before and after surgery for safe recovery
