Benefit one: it's a more permanent and long-lasting procedure

Laser tattoo removal uses high powered lasers that penetrate deep into the skin, which permanently demolishes the ink particles that are embedded in the cells. In summary, it's a permanent and long-lasting solution to all your tattoo related worries.

Benefit two: tattoo removal can potentially increase your job prospects

Tattoos can often have a negative stigma attached to them and may look unprofessional in the workplace. They can hinder a person's chances of getting a job or even staying in a job for a long period of time. This is because many employers want their employees to look smart and professional looking in front of their clients or customers.

Risk one: More than one session is needed to completely get rid of your tattoos

It is highly unlikely that a tattoo can be completely removed in just one sitting. It will require a good few sessions before you see positive results. This principle applies to all the skin clinics that are out there. Treatment can as a result become costly, but most people who have already undergone the treatment sessions will agree, that it is money well spent.

Risk two: infections could emerge if area of treatment is neglected

After any treatment session, it is advisable that you try to always keep the affected area protected and bacteria-free. Good quality aftercare will prevent any infections from emerging and spreading around the body, so make sure you don't neglect any of the treated areas of the skin.
