Tattoo Removal

A tattoo used to be a permanent and irreversible adornment to one's skin. However, in recent years new lasers have been developed for safe and effective way to successfully remove unwanted tattoos.

Patients request removal of a tattoo for a variety of reasons - social, cultural or physical. Some patients develop an allergic reaction to a tattoo several years after the initial application. Because each tattoo is unique, removal techniques must be tailored to suit each individual case. For instance, professionally applied tattoos tend to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin at uniform levels. Homemade tattoos are often applied with an uneven hand and their removal may be more difficult. Deeper blue and black ink colors are particularly difficult to remove. Professional tattoos made with some of the newer inks and pastel colors may also be difficult to remove entirely.

Removing Tattoos

Early methods of tatto removal were less successful. surgery,acid injection, dermabrasion and skin grafting can be painful and often leave a scar in place of the original tattoo.

Can Tattoos be removed without scarring?

Now, usung latest the latest laser technology both single coloured and multicoloured tattos can be removed safely and effectively forever without scarring. By directing a specially chosen laser light at the unwanted colours it is possible , througha process known as selective photothermolysis to treat the unwanted coloured inks without affecting any of the surrounding skin. Lasers have become the standard treatment because they offer a "bloodless," low risk, highly effective approach with minimal side effects. The type of laser used generally depends upon the pigment colors. In many cases, multiple treatments may be required.

How does laser treatment work?

The laser light is directed at the unwanted tattoo pigment in a series of pulses. Laser energy rapidly heats up the unwanted coloured pigment , shattering the ink into much smaller particles. These particles are small enough for body to naturally disperse them, causing tattoo to fade away.

How many treatments will I need?

As every individual tattoo is different, the number of treatments will vary from person to person. The colour, depth, age and size of the tatto and skin colour will all affectthe length and amount of treatment each individual will need. treatments are done four weekly to allow body to remove the maximum amount of tattoo pigment. The tattoo will continue to fade over the course of several treatment sessions.

Are there side effects or complications?

Side effects are generally minor, but may include skin discoloration at the treatment site, infection of the tattoo site, lack of complete pigment removal, or some scarring. A raised or thickened scar may appear three to six months after the tattoo is removed.
