Can Tattoos Be Removed?

By [email protected] 3rd August 2022 Category: Advice

Whether you have a poorly executed tattoo or you’ve just had a change in personal taste, you might find yourself regretting your decision to have a tattoo, but what can be done? Read on to learn more about whether tattoos can be removed, the process, and how you can get yours removed.

 

Can tattoos be removed?

Unwanted tattoos can be removed by a tattoo removal procedure. Laser treatment is one of the most often used methods for tattoo removal.

When you get a tattoo, the ink is injected beneath the epidermis (the top layer of the skin). As a result, tattoo removal is far more difficult than the tattoo application itself. Having second thoughts about getting a tattoo or being dissatisfied with the way your tattoo looks may lead you to think about having it removed. For example, the ink on the tattoo may have faded, or you may have decided it doesn’t match your current image.

 

How to remove tattoos

As previously noted, unwanted tattoos can be gradually removed over a series of treatments using a laser. The laser light breaks down the tattoo ink into small particles, which are then taken into the bloodstream and safely eliminated from the body.

 

Colour tattoo removal

At sk:n, we use the most cutting-edge medical laser technology available to remove tattoo ink. Dark tattoo removal is much easier as black ink absorbs all laser frequencies, making it the most straightforward to remove using a laser.

Colour tattoo removal is a bit more difficult. This is because to remove large, multi-coloured tattoos, a variety of lasers must be employed, each with a specific purpose. Removing a modest, simple black tattoo needs at least five treatments; larger, more complex tattoos may necessitate more.

Sk:n offers the use of specialised lasers, like Pico, to target the brightest undesirable pigment for even faster results and less downtime for tattoos with a variety of colours.

 

How long does laser tattoo removal take?

Getting rid of a tattoo using laser therapy normally requires several sessions spaced six weeks apart, although the number of sessions required depends on the size, location, and colour of the tattoo.
