Tattoo removal is a procedure that can be performed by a tattoo artist or by a qualified medical professional. Laser therapy is the only means of removing a tattoo. There are currently 11 FDA-approved lasers for tattoo removal in Darlinghurst. All of them use wavelengths in the infrared B to infrared A spectrum. The number of treatments may vary from person to person, depending on the colours used in the tattoo and the depth at which they were applied. For those who have had comprehensive tattoo removal and feel confident enough in their skin to revisit the idea of getting inked, there is no reason why you shouldn’t go for it!
Other types of lasers that have been used historically for skin rejuvenation include pulsed dye lasers and continuous wave light sources. Still, these methods are not FDA-approved for this purpose.
Treatments Can Vary
The number of treatments needed may vary from person to person, depending on the colours used in the tattoo and the depth at which they were applied. The number of treatments required depends on many factors: age, health, lifestyle and body type, as well as how deep into your skin you want it removed.
Can you get another one?
If you have had a tattoo removed and are confident enough in your skin to revisit the idea of getting inked, there is no reason why you shouldn’t go for it. Tattoos are permanent; they’re not going to fade away on their own, so if you’ve had one removed and now feel like your previous body art is ruining your self-image and confidence, then by all means: get another one!
If after removing the first tattoo, however, or even if before removal but after having multiple tattoos done at once (which can happen), it becomes clear that this isn’t what you want anymore and especially if it’s because those old ones are too painful or difficult to hide, there is no shame in going back on our previous recommendation: remove everything!
Red-orange scarring can develop after laser treatment because red ink absorbs light more easily than other colours. The result of the laser treatment is different depending on the colour of the tattoo. If you have thin, red-coloured lines and spots on your skin, it’s possible that some areas may not be completely removed by treatment. In this case, you may need additional treatments to get rid of all traces of ink. If those treatments don’t work well enough or at all (for example, if they cause new dark patches), then you’ll likely need surgery later on down the road when even more pigment has been deposited into your skin over time by another procedure such as lasers or radiofrequency energy (RF).
Not all tattoos can be removed completely
In order to effectively remove a tattoo, the technician must have experience and proper equipment. The colour of ink can also play an important role in how well you can remove your tattoos. Some inks are more difficult to remove than others, so they must match their technique with the type of ink used on your skin.
If you’re concerned about whether or not laser treatments will work for you, talk with a professional who can advise on what kind of treatment would be best for your situation.
Laser tattoo removal is an effective and safe method of removing tattoos with minimal scarring. Three types of wavelengths are used because they can penetrate through different skin depths without burning or damaging it too much. Also, each type can stimulate hair follicles so that after removal, there aren’t any gaps where hair might grow back in later.
