Tattoos can be a way to express yourself creatively or give meaning to a piece of art. However, tattoos are permanent, and circumstances can change over time. If you no longer want a tattoo, it can be difficult to see it on a day-to-day basis. It can be an uncomfortable reminder or an eyesore that you try to keep covered. It may not have turned out the way you wanted, or it may have changed over time. Whatever your circumstances, unwanted tattoos can be removed with the right treatment approach.
Tattoos are created by depositing pigment in the deeper layers of the skin with a very fine needle. This pigment is marked as a foreign invader by your body, but the pigments used in tattoos are too big to be gotten rid of by the metabolic system. This ensures the tattoo stays in place. Over time, tattoos can fade but remain permanently in the skin.
There are a variety of tattoo removal options available, but many are ineffective at best and dangerous at worst. For example, tattoo removal creams can require years of consistent use to achieve noticeable results. Other options like abrasion can put you at risk of infection and scarring. Surgical options can be invasive and require grafts.
The single most effective way to get rid of unwanted tattoos is laser tattoo removal. Laser tattoo removal works by sending very fast pulses of light into the pigment which shatters it into smaller pieces. Once broken up, the pigment is expelled through the lymphatic system and fades from the skin. Laser tattoo removal platforms can be customized to unique pigments, depths, and treatment areas with the help of our team.
Laser tattoo removal typically requires a package of treatments for best results. Laser tattoo removal is highly personalized because of the many different factors, so our team will ensure you have a complete treatment schedule. It’s important to know that some tattoos will not completely fade but can be faded enough that they can be covered with a new tattoo. Our team will make sure you understand what results you can expect during your consultation at our Pensacola office.
