A tattoo is meant to be permanent, which is part of their appeal. Some people use them as a diary of sorts, chronicling big events in their lives. Others get them for no other reason than simple adornment. Others are somewhere in between, with the chosen images having personal meaning to the wearer that may not be obvious to an observer. No matter what your reason for choosing your particular tattoo, you may feel as if it no longer belongs on your skin. Tattoo regret is very common in Charlotte, NC and elsewhere. If you regret your ink and would like to erase it, laser tattoo removal is a great option for both men and women.
Is Now the Right Time for Tattoo Removal?
Unless you truly hate your tattoo, you may be wondering if now is the right time to consider having it removed. This is an especially important question if your tattoo is large or visible every day. The reason this is an important consideration is that tattoo removal takes a series of sessions to completely erase the artwork. As such, it is important to be committed to the treatment process.
The Laser Tattoo Removal Treatment
The process of removing the tattoo is quick and easy. The laser is a focused beam of light that is calibrated to hone in on the pigments used in your tattoo while completely ignoring the natural pigmentation of your skin. The ink pigment is heated, causing minor damage to nearby cells. Your immune system responds by sending white blood cells to repair the damage. Your body then recognizes the ink as a byproduct of the damage and whisks it away. After repetitions of this, no ink at all will remain, leaving you with clear, flawless skin.
Getting New Artwork
Once you have completed your final laser tattoo removal treatment in Charlotte, NC, you can have new artwork applied at your leisure. There are no special precautions you or your tattoo artist will need to take.
