Laser tattoo removal in the Deerfield Beach area has gotten a lot of attention recently. In Florida, we spend a lot of time out in the sun in shorts, skirts, and swimwear. When patients have had tattoos done on their body, they are often regularly exposed where others can see them. A poorly done tattoo or an embarrassing tattoo may cause patients to feel self-conscious about the way they look when they are in public, and they often turn to us to learn about tattoo removal.
Laser tattoo removal has grown in popularity as patients begin to realize that the tattoo they thought would last forever could be eliminated with laser technology. While this technology has been around for some time, it has recently been perfected to the point where the procedure can be done on patients of all skin colors and types. Laser tattoo removal uses a special laser light that can break up the pigmentation of the ink. By doing this, the body can absorb the ink safely and the tattoo will begin to fade over time.
Laser tattoo removal cannot be done in just one day. Several appointments need to be scheduled a few weeks apart in order for the process to occur. Patients book their initial appointment, and then subsequent visits are made to fade the tattoo. It can be difficult to determine how many appointments are necessary at the beginning of the treatment, as many factors can affect how the laser will work. Tattoos that are large, heavily pigmented, and made with quality inks may be more difficult to remove than smaller tattoos made with poor quality inks.
