Did you know that 29% of Americans have at least one tattoo? And of those who chose to get inked in their lifetime, 23% say they regret ever getting one.
If you’re one of the many people having second thoughts about their tattoo(s), you’re not stuck with your ink for life! Whether you’ve considered this treatment option or not, we’re here to highlight the benefits of laser tattoo removal.
How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?
Our tattoo removal treatments utilize laser energy to safely and effectively eliminate your unwanted ink. Short bursts of this energy are delivered to the treatment area, breaking the tattoo pigment up into tiny fragments. The dispersed ink particles are then naturally eliminated by your body, lightening the overall appearance of your tattoo over time.
Safely and Effectively Eliminate Ink
Not only is laser tattoo removal the most effective option for eliminating unwanted tattoos, but it’s the most comfortable and safe as well.
Before the era of lasers, old tattoo removal methods consisted of physically removing the layers of skin that contained unwanted ink with salt or a harsh acid. Not only were these methods harmful and had potential to result in serious infections—they were extremely painful.
A newer, and less painful method is the elimination of tattoos with skin care products. There are several creams and lotions on the market that claim they can get rid of your unwanted ink. And while they may show some improvement when it comes to lightening the pigment, these products are notorious for delivering less than promised.
Rather than suffer through a treatment or spend money on countless ointments that don’t show positive results, you can invest in a treatment option that’s worth it—a safe, comfortable and non-invasive laser.
