Every day is more common the creation of decorative tattoos. However, so does the need to eliminate social or labor reasons. Currently six out of ten people who get a tattoo do repent and decide to take it off five years later.
Formerly, tattoos were removed with aggressive methods. At present the laser is employed to remove tattoos progressively, without damaging the surrounding skin.
The chances of successfully remove a tattoo depends on several factors, it should be a physician experienced in this type of treatment the patient who report on performance expectations. Color, type of tattoo and body location are variables that influence the results.
In our clinic we have for laser tattoo removal Neodymium-Yag Q-Switched emitting light whose energy is absorbed by the pigment without damaging the epidermis.
The laser light acts fractionating the ink particles or pigment so that the particles are reabsorbed by the body via macrophages and are then removed by lymphatic drainage. After each session, the pigment is less visible.
It is painful?
Topical anesthesia on the tattoo applied one hour before treatment, to reduce discomfort.
How many sessions are needed?
The total number of sessions varies depending on the color and depth of the tattoo and the type of pigment applied. Usually a minimum of 6 sessions are required, but if the tattoo is professional and polychrome, require a greater number of sessions. Today, the green color is the most difficult to remove.
¿Aftercare are necessary?
Always avoid sun exposure and use a regenerating cream with rosehip.
The next session takes place once a minimum of one month and a half has passed since the first, for the body to regenerate skin and lymphatic system to perform the ejection of fragmented pigment in the previous session.
