Tattoo Removal Santa Ana
ARE YOU THROUGH WITH YOUR TATTOO?
It hasn’t been that long ago if you wanted to remove your tattoo you could either have it surgically removed, sanded off through dermabrasion, or burned off through an acid treatment.
Thankfully, these days, tattoos are removed by lasers. Lasers work by emitting short pulses of intense light that pass through the top layers of the skin to where the ink is located, and breaks the ink apart into tiny, dust-like particles. Since the particles are so tiny, they’re more readily absorbed by your body, and eliminated through tis natural processes.
This advanced laser technology is incredibly effective, and results in better ink removal, faster recovery time, fewer treatments, and less pain.
Most tattoos require several treatments for effective removal – the average number is eight – depending on a number of different factors, including:
- Your age
- Your tattoo’s age
- Location of your tattoo
- Quality of the ink
- Colors of the ink
- If your tattoo was placed over an existing tattoo
- If you have scars from the tattoo process
- If you smoke
- Your health
- Your skin color
- The technology being used
We typically recommend you wait six weeks between each treatment to give your body adequate time to recover and to thoroughly eliminate ink particles from the previous treatment.
Even though tattoos take several sessions to achieve optimum clearance, you should begin to see some improvement immediately after the first session. Your tattoo will continue to fade over the next few weeks, with maximum fading occurring by week four or six.
