Types of Tattoo Removal For Those Considering Tattoo Removal



by: Matt Murren

There are a number of ways in which tatoo removal works. There are some ideas that have been around for years, while others are just beginning to gain prominence. Each of the removal options will be painful, and some claim that it is just as painful as getting the tatoo itself. This is because the it reaches down into several layers of skin, and each of these layers must be removed. The different procedures must reach into each layer of skin to fully remove.

The first type of removal involves the use of lasers. Laser removal is the most popular form available today. It has been around since the 1980's, but its popularity has only grown in recent years. There are even offices that exist only to use this type of laser technology. With this type of procedure, a low level laser is pointed directly at the skin. The pulsating laser then slowly sloughs off the tattoo until it disappears completely. This may take several sessions spread out over several weeks or even months. If the tatoo is larger it may take even more time for the process to work.

Another type of procedure is dermabraison. Many people know this procedure as a cosmetic procedure that takes away layers of dead skin to make the skin look younger and more healthy. As a form of tattoo removal, it works in much the same way. A numbing salve or cream is applied directly to the skin in the location of the tattoo. A small machine that looks similar to a small sanding belt is then rubbed against the skin. This slowly breaks up the ink and sands off the layers of skin. In some cases the doctor may freeze the skin first before doing this removal procedure.

One of the more extreme forms of removal is known as excision. With this procedure the tatoo is literally cut off the skin. The skin is then sewn back in place and allowed to heal. This only works with very small tattoos, and in people with very elastic skin.

Removal options can easily be found by looking in the phone book or online. The cost of such procedures depends on the colors used in the tattoo, the size, and sometimes the location. The person who handles the removal process can offer more information as well as an exact cost of the procedure.
