With summer just around the corner, many are realizing those tattoos they once thought were a good idea just simply aren't anymore. During the summer, people wear much less clothing. It is then that those eyesore tattoos that were covered up during winter are suddenly shown to the world. Through advances in technology, — tattoo removal is now easier to go through and more effective than the outdated methods used before lasers.
Before lasers were used, there were various methods of removing a tattoo, including dermabrasion, acid treatments, cryosurgery, and excision. All of these methods had the potential to cause major scarring and often left behind traces of ink that could not be fully removed. The lackluster results left many wishing they had simply left their old tattoo in place.
According to a Harris Poll, 1 in 7 people have a tattoo they regret getting. Dr. Travis Shaw of Smart Laser Physician Tattoo Removal recently spoke on tattoo regret. "Each day, we hear and see stories of tattoos gone wrong. Whether it is a poorly done one, one that was gotten while intoxicated, or one that no longer fits a person's lifestyle, we are here to help. We can get rid of that tattoo and save our patients the shame and regret of having a tattoo they hate."
Although laser tattoo removal has been around since 1967, it has only been widely used in the last ten years, as newer lasers have been developed that are able to remove a broad spectrum of ink colors. These Q-switched lasers worked to effectively remove the ink with less risk for scarring. Today, tattoo removal offices use the Picosecond laser, which requires fewer treatments and works more effectively.
"We offer fast tattoo removal with a guarantee. If we cannot successfully achieve the goal of tattoo clearance, we will offer free sessions for up to a year. We want our patients to feel confident in our services and even allow for a free consultation so they can see the laser at work. Once they see how well the laser works, they generally are ready to start the process right away," says Dr. Shaw.
With summer on its way, it is time for individuals to begin thinking about those tattoos they have covered up all fall and winter so they can determine if they want to get rid of them. Although it takes multiple sessions, all types of tattoos can be removed with the right laser treatment.
