Recent statistics report that one in five adults in the U.S has at least one tattoo. With the rise in popularity of tattoos, the number of people seeking removal of existing tattoos has been on the rise as well. In fact, research has shown that 20% of individuals with tattoos now have “tattoo regret.”
Fortunately, advances in technology have made it easier for those with an unwanted tattoo. Veritas Medi Spa utilizes state-of-the-art laser tattoo removal techniques that can eliminate or lighten your existing tattoo.
The benefits of laser tattoo removal
Because each tattoo is unique, with a number of factors such as the age of the tattoo, types of ink involved, etc., tattoo removal techniques must be tailored to suit each individual case. Veritas Medi Spa employs a team of professionals that are expertly trained and possess the expertise and the knowledge of laser removal techniques, including which laser works best for which types of ink, as well as the different components of a tattoo, and the patient’s skin type.
How does tattoo removal work?
Lasers that produce short pulses of intense light are administered to the site, passing through the skin’s top layers, where they are absorbed into the pigment of the tattoo. The energy produced by the lasers causes the tattoo’s pigment colors to disperse into tiny particles, which are removed gradually by the body’s natural immune response. The laser only targets the area of the tattoo without causing damage to the surrounding skin.
The wavelengths of laser light that are used depend on the colors and the depth of the tattoo. Because black ink absorbs all laser wavelengths, it is the easiest to remove. Other colors absorb the laser light selectively and can be more difficult to remove.
