Remove Unwanted Tattoos with Tattoo Removal

Tattooing was once the sole domain of misfits and, sometimes, military and militia members. Now, tattooing has become so mainstream that grandmothers, doctors and members of clergy are sporting ink. With this greater freedom to indulge in tattooing comes more regretted artwork. If you have a tattoo you wish would just disappear, laser tattoo removal may be just what you’re looking for.

How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

When you receive a tattoo, the artist uses a needle or a series of needles to inject ink into the dermal layer of your skin. When done too shallow, the ink will bleed right back out and leave a washed-out, faded mess. If done too deeply, the ink will spread, which is called “blowing out,” and give you a blurry tattoo. If done just right, the artwork can remain crisp and sharp for decades.

No matter if your tattoo was done poorly or well, laser treatments break up the ink and cause your body to clean it up. After a series of treatments, the tattoo will gradually go away. As this is done in stages and at your convenience, you can also use laser tattoo removal to simply fade old artwork so that newer, better work can be applied.

A Versatile Procedure

Laser tattoo removal can be used just about anywhere on the body, so it doesn’t matter if you’re removing a tiny tat on your arm or an entire back piece. You can choose to have the entire area treated at once each time or focus on just one section at a time. Laser tattoo removal is versatile and entirely at your convenience, making it a great choice for those with busy schedules.
