Patients who have unwanted tattoos that they would like removed are no longer just “out of luck.” With today’s technology, men and women can now remove these tattoos and erase the past. Sacramento, CA area patients can ask the team at Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Northern California about the advantages of treatments such as laser tattoo removal.
What is laser tattoo removal?
Laser tattoo removal is a special way of removing tattoos from the skin. With laser light, the pigments in the ink are broken down. They are then safely and naturally absorbed by the body to fade away the tattoo. It is important that patients understand that the treatment does require several treatment sessions for effective removal. However, with several visits, patients can greatly reduce the appearance of these tattoos to reveal clear and beautiful skin!
How many treatment sessions will I require to remove my tattoo?
Treatment sessions are spaced out several weeks apart and with each treatment, the tattoo will fade a little bit more. The number of treatment sessions needed will vary depending on many factors, including:
- The location of the tattoo
- The quality of the inks used to create the tattoo
- How long the tattoo has been in place
- The colors of inks used in the tattoo
- The patient’s natural skin color
- The ink’s response to laser treatment
During an initial consultation appointment, our doctors will evaluate the skin and the tattoo patients are looking to have removed to give an estimate as to how many treatment sessions may be required. Patients must then attend these visits to achieve the desired results. We encourage patients to learn more about the treatment and to have realistic expectations as to the removal of the tattoo.
