Chances are that if you are giving genuine thought to laser tattoo removal, you probably have a rather extensive arsenal of questions to ask. It’s still a relatively new concept in the grand scheme of things, so it’s natural to have a wide variety of doubts and concerns with regard to what it entails and how it works.
On the plus side, laser tattoo removal technology and techniques have never been more advanced or refined. Likewise, actually tracking down the very best service offering laser tattoo removal Wirral has to offer has never been easier, with the industry’s most capable, approachable and affordable service providers now easily accessible online.
So for those who may be approaching laser tattoo removal or at least considering the idea, here’s a quick rundown of the most important basics and fundamentals:
Does laser tattoo removal hurt?
Usually the first and most important question in the eyes of most, while it wouldn’t be responsible to say that laser tattoo removal is completely painless, it’s nowhere near as unpleasant as some may assume. In the hands of a professional, it is extremely unlikely that the discomfort will be any greater than that of having the tattoo done in the first place. And what’s more, it will take nearly as long – the use of anaesthetic creams will also help minimise discomfort.
Is laser tattoo removal safe?
In a word, yes. Well, at least it is safe if you work with an experienced and reputable brand, rather than the first name you come across offering suspiciously-cheap services. The lasers that are used in the tattoo removal process today are extraordinarily advanced and are able to target only the area of the tattoo with pinpoint precision. As such, the skin surrounding the tattoo is 100% unaffected.
Will it leave a scar?
Once again, in the hands of a professionally trained and experienced service provider, the answer is no – laser tattoo removal does not leave behind scarring. While alternative methods for tattoo removal force the ink out of the skin and can lead to scarring, laser tattoo removal breaks the ink down in a different way…so no scarring to worry about.
How many sessions will be required?
The answer to this question will be determined entirely by the specific case the client presents with. In all instances, it may be necessary to undergo a number of treatments in order to gradually fade the ink of the tattoo to such an extent that it can no longer be seen. In the case of tattoos that are already fading, fewer sessions may be needed than in the case of tattoos that are fresh, bold and bright. Similarly, a small tattoo of a couple of inches in diameter will naturally require fewer sessions and less time to remove than an enormous tattoo covering the entirety of the individual’s back.
Is laser tattoo removal suitable for everyone?
As is the case with all cosmetic procedures across the board, it is irresponsible to suggest that there is such a thing as a procedure that’s 100% suitable for 100% of people. There will always be a variety of variables to take into account, including the general health of the individual in question, their age, any medications they may currently be on and more. You will always be provided with a consultation before going ahead, during which eligibility and suitability will be discussed in full.
Are colourful tattoos more difficult to remove?
Potentially speaking, they can be, though again it depends on the age, type, size and nature of the tattoo. Generally speaking, certain colours respond to the laser tattoo removal process better than others. If for example you have a tattoo which is predominantly red, dark blue or black, chances of the removal process will be much quicker. By contrast, pink, yellow and white can be more difficult to get rid of, while green represents perhaps the single most challenging colour to remove. More often than not however, any tattoo regardless of its colours and combinations thereof can be successfully removed.
Is it expensive?
The subject of costs is all relative as just like getting the tattoo in the first place, value for money must be considered in conjunction with how much you want to get rid of the tattoo. If you really want to get rid of a tattoo that is having an impact on your life, technically speaking any price is a fair price to pay. That being said however, single session prices are the lowest they have ever been and with the most effective technologies and techniques now in widespread utilisation, fewer sessions are needed and costs are kept to absolute minimums.
