Clear Lake Dermatologists Serve Patients Requiring Laser Tattoo Removal in Seabrook, TX.
How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?
Tattoos can be removed using lasers that break down the pigment found in the tattoo ink. Using an intense beam of light energy, the laser works best on removing black tattoos. The dark color absorbs light faster, making them the easiest type of tattoos for a laser to remove. Lasers can also remove tattoos with color, but they require specific lasers that are designed to work with their unique color pigments.
Who Can Benefit from Laser Tattoo Removal?
Every tattoo is unique in the same way that people are unique. It makes sense that the method of removing a tattoo should also be unique. There have been many different methods of tattoo removal tried in the past. Unfortunately, not all of them have had great results. In fact, some of them left ugly scarring that was often worse to look at than the original tattoo.
The good news is that even if you have tried a failed method of tattoo removal, you are still a good candidate for laser tattoo removal. As long as you don’t have extensive scarring, lasers can perfect the removal you attempted in the past.
What is the Laser Tattoo Removal Procedure?
Laser tattoo removal has become popular over the years. It can take five to 10 treatment sessions, in which short pulses of laser light are aimed at the tattoo. This breaks down the pigments in the tattoo. Once broken down, the body will naturally remove them through absorption. The number of sessions required depends on the size, color and age of the tattoo you are looking to remove. We stay by your side from the very first session to the last session, ensuring you are satisfied with the end result.
