Tattoo Laser Removal FAQs
posted: Aug. 24, 2022.
Many get a tattoo as a way to express themselves, the art form is more and more mainstream and it's the knowledge that tattoos will last that often makes them even more appealing. But situations often change and so do decisions, and in the past, if you wanted to do away with an unwanted tattoo the treatment could sometimes involve covering it up with another tattoo or altering it. With tattoo laser removal you are no longer limited to those options, the information below will cover some of the most common questions regarding the treatment, but to learn much more you can reach out to Dr. John Randall and his provider team of Randall Dermatology & MedSpa with offices in West Lafayette, Kokomo, Frankfort, Rensselaer, Terre Haute, Westfield, Monticello, Winamac, Williamsport, and Zionsville, IN.
Will it Hurt?
There is some discomfort associated with laser tattoo removal, but most who have undergone the procedure agree that it's nowhere near as painful as getting the tattoo.
How Does It Work?
A strong pulse of energy is sent onto your skin that targets the ink directly which heats it up and dissolves it. It works in a similar way to laser hair removal, where the laser is made to target only the hair follicles by their color against your skin.
Is It Effective?
Laser treatment is perhaps the most successful and often the least costly method for tattoo removal. In the cases where complete tattoo removal isn't possible it will lighten the affected area enough that it will be significantly less visible. It's important to schedule a visit so you can discuss with your doctor and learn about what's possible with your specific needs. Things like your skin color and the age and complexity of your tattoo are all factors to consider about how effective treatment will be.
