The professionals that remove tattoo ink will use special lasers that target beams of light at the inked area on your skin. The pulses of light then begin to break inks into minute particles which are absorbed by the human body. The treatment is safe for patients and very successful and it permanently removes a piece of body art.
There are a few ways to locate a specialist in your area that is able to remove your tattoos and it is imperative to use the services of a fully licensed and insured clinic. You can find contact numbers for technicians in the telephone directory and many will advertise in monthly magazines and in newspapers. The internet is also a good place to find technicians and the web pages are a useful place to read some useful information about the procedures and to look at before and after pictures of treatments.
After locating a suitable clinic you can get in touch and book an appointment for an initial consultation. A technician will look at your tattoo that you want removing and work out how many laser sessions you need. Sessions that you attend will last for a few minutes and you need to have weeks of treatment for permanent removal.
The process does not hurt but you may feel some slight discomfort during and after each appointment. The specialists will advise you how to look after your skin properly so that you get maximum benefit from your treatment. There will not be any scars after the procedure but a few patients have reported mild swelling and slight redness around the area that has been treated.
Over the course of a few weeks you will notice that the tattoo is fading gradually until it has gone completely. Some colors that are used in body art may take longer to remove and your chosen technician will speak to you about this. It is very important that you attend every appointment that is booked so that the treatment is effective.
The prices charged for treatment are going to depend on how many treatments you need and which clinic you use. You can pay for each treatment as you have it but it may be more cost effective to pay for sessions in advance. It is essential that you retain payment receipts along with any other paperwork regarding your aftercare that is issued.
If you experience any unpleasant side effects following a laser session you should consult your doctor or the clinic. Some people may not react too well after being exposed laser beams and this form of treatment will be unsuitable. If you are happy with your procedure it may help other people if you leave your positive comments on the clinics web site.
