How Effective Is Laser Tattoo Removal?Tattoos were once removed rather barbarically. With a scalpel or a sharp knife, a layer of skin was scraped off. Unsurprisingly, this method was painful and often resulted in scarring and skin problems. Luckily we have some better ways of doing this today. Though there are tattoo removal creams, there's not a lot of evidence that they work. Laser tattoo removal treatments, on the other hand, are an efficient and safe method that can achieve complete removal.
Can I Get a Cover-Up Tattoo After I Fade My Unwanted Tattoo?One of the most popular methods of fixing bad tattoos is to fade the original and change the design. You can use laser tattoo removal to selectively diminish parts of any ink that you don't like. Then, you can create something new once the skin has healed. You'll need to make sure that your skin fully heals before taking on any new ink though. Consult with our tattoo artists if this is an option you want to pursue. We'll help you come up with a great design to cover over any remaining traces of the old tattoo and replace it with something new and beautiful.
How Long Will It Take My Tattoo to Fade?You'll notice a difference in the tattoo immediately after beginning treatments. But we advise our customers to continue with the recommended course. We generally see complete removal within 6-8 treatments depending on the size, color, and complexity of the original. Getting your tattoo removed is not an overnight thing. Be prepared to be patient with it and let your body recover before the next treatment. Trying to rush things along won’t do you any favors during the healing process.
Can You Remove a Tattoo in One Session?As we said above, you aren't going to have your tattoo removed overnight or in one session. While you'll see definite fading of your tattoo, it takes time for your body to remove the pigments from your skin. It takes even longer for your skin to heal enough to be ready for the next treatment or a new tattoo.
