What is tattoo removal?

Tattoo removal is the process of removing tattoos pigments using non-invasive Q-switched lasers. This method allows for all colours of tattoos to be completely removed from the skin without leaving any marks. Tattoo removal is commonly regarded as a painful procedure, however if done correctly it is in fact painless. As many as 50 per cent of those who get a permanent tattoo also get a tattoo removal process performed sooner or later in life which makes it a fairly common procedure.

Methods of tattoo removal

There are various methods which can be used for the tattoo removal process. This post will discuss some common procedures used by people to get rid of their tattoos.

There are certain tattoo removal creams which are available in the market and claim to help remove the ink from your skin.These creams work by causing the ink on your skin to fade which eventually leads to its total disappearance.

IPL or Intense Pulsed Light is a therapy which is usually used in hair removal procedures for people who want to get rid of coarse hair patches. The technology can also be used to remove tattoos for the same reason it works on hair. A pulse of multi frequency lights is used on the skin. The light then scatters till it finds the ink traces and removes them. This technique is less painful than laser treatment but a lot more expensive.

Laser therapy is the most common way of tattoo removal and works by targeting the ink with pulses of concentrated light of the same wavelength.
The method is effective but one tattoo can take anywhere between 1 to 10 sittings and cost you a lot depending on the size of your tattoo.
