Tattoos can be a great method of self-expression for patients in the area of Boca Raton, Florida. They can tell a story, spark a memory, or just represent who a person is through creative means. However, some patients who have tattoos done end up later having tattoo regret. While it is believed that tattoos are permanent, technology has found a way to fade away unwanted tattoos both safely and effectively. This allows patients to either fully remove a tattoo or fade it away to prepare for a coverup. Whichever you prefer, you can speak to our board-certified dermatologist at the Rendon Center to find out if you are a good candidate for laser tattoo removal.
What is laser tattoo removal?
One of the most commonly requested treatments at the Rendon Center is that of laser tattoo removal. Laser light is used in many areas of medicine to help improve the skin and body. It can also be used to break down the pigmentation of ink in a tattoo that has been on the skin. A special laser device is used to target the ink in the skin and break it up. This allows the body to naturally absorb it and cause it to fade away with time. With each laser treatment, patients will notice their tattoo slowly reducing in strength and color.
Who is a candidate for laser tattoo removal?
Most adult patients are proper candidates for tattoo removal, regardless of their skin color and ethnicity—which used to be a problem in the earlier years of laser skin treatments. Patients will need several treatments to achieve fading or full removal of their unwanted tattoo.
