Laser Tattoo Removal - How Effective Is It?



by: Matt Murren

So you were in the prime of your life and thought getting your girlfriends name tattooed on your arm was the best idea ever. Or maybe you voted for the Dragon tattoo. You now find yourself considering laser tattoo removal to get rid of the ink you were so proud of back in the day. It happens to everyone, the wrinkles set in and the old tattoo just doesn’t look the same. You are probably wondering how safe and effective laser tattoo removal is. In this article we are going to review some FAQ’s on removing tattoos for good.

Tattoo removal is a procedure that needs some thought before diving in. The way it works is that the laser selectively targets and destroys the tattoo pigment without damaging the tissue around the tattoo. This significantly reduces the amount of scarring that occurs during the removal process. Due to the fact that the lasers are absorbed differently by different colors, a skilled physician can tune the laser at the proper depth and color of your tattoo for effective removal. This works well for multi-level and intricate tattoos.

How Long Does It Take?

Most laser removal procedures take between 15-40 minutes. You will need multiple procedures. Typically this depends on the amount of color and depth of the tattoo. Typically you will have up to eight visits to completely remove the tattoo.

What Can I Expect After The Procedure?

Usually the area is red and looks like it is sun burned for up to three weeks. You may also notice some bruising, and some bleeding is not uncommon. The area will be sensitive for several weeks, and you may notice that your skin texture will change but will heal. During the healing process you will want to stay out of the sun. You may not notice huge improvements until after you have had several visits.

How Effective Is Laser Tattoo Removal?

The success really depends on a couple of factors. The first is how new the tattoo is. The newer tattoos are usually harder to remove, and take more sessions due to the density of the ink. If you want to have success in removal, you need to be committed to going in for multiple procedures. For larger areas it may take up to 12 treatments to totally eliminate. You don’t want to spend some money and discontinue the treatments only to find you still have remnants of your old body art.

How Much Does It Cost?

Laser removal is not cheap. You will typically spend from $200-500 per session. Yep, you read it right, that $300 tattoo may cost up to $10,000 to remove. Hardly a great investment. Again, it really depends on how large, complex, and how many colors the physician has to deal with during the removal process.

In closing, if you are considering laser removal make sure you visit a qualified physician and ask them about potential scarring, discoloration, and have them assess your situation specifically.
