How to remove a tattoo
Nowadays, there are a growing number of people that
are choosing to remove their tattoos. Some find that
tattoos bring back unwanted memories of the past. Others
find that tattoos may be detrimental to their health
and eventually cause skin cancer or some type of skin
disease. Career concerns, bad artwork or art placement,
changing lifestyle or personal taste are just a few
of the reasons that people decide to remove their tattoos.
Studies have shown that approximately 10% of Americans
have some kind of tattoo and of that percentage, 50%
want them removed. The tattoo removal procedures people
commonly use these days are as follows:
Laser Tattoo Removal
These days, most people use laser technology to remove
their tattoos. Basically, lasers remove tattoos by breaking
up the pigment colors of the tattoo with a high-intensity
light beam. The more treatments you have, the more the
laser can penetrate to wipe away the ink. However, overdoing
the treatments can cause damage to you skin and eventually
lead to scarring. If treated properly, sometimes there
are no traces of scarring but it really depends on the
situation. Basically, the laser type, number of sessions
and the patient's body ability to rid it self of the
ink are factors that can determine the outcome of the
procedure. Depending on your tattoo, you may need anywhere
from 1-10 sessions, each costing in the range of $250-$1000
Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL)
IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light Therapy is an effective
tattoo removal treatment that targets intense light
onto the upper layer of the skin basically burning it
off. The treatment stimulates new skin growth, and when
the treated area heals, the tattoo is usually much less
noticeable than before. This method is said to be not
as painful as laser therapy, and more effective, resulting
in less treatment sessions. It usually takes 10-12 months
after the treatment for full results to show. The cost
of IPL is based on the number of pulses your tattoo
requires to be removed and it can range anywhere from
$10-$15 per pulse.
Using Creams to Fade Away Tattoos
Creams are a chemical, non-laser approach to removing
a tattoo. They are used over an extended period of time
to gradually fade away a tattoo. However, results are
not guaranteed and people usually resort to this method
only if laser treatments are out of the budget. Some
creams burn away layers of skin and can cause scarring.
The positive side to cream is that it's affordable,
however the saying goes as follows "you get what you
Excision involves removing the tattooed area of skin
and then stitching it closed. This method is more ideal
for smaller tattoo, however can still be used on larger
ones. For larger tattoos, the skin is removed and a
skin graft from another part of the body is used to
cover the area.
Dermabrasion is a surgical procedure where the surgeon
uses a sanding tool to go over the skin in order to
rub off the top layers of the skin to reveal fresh skin
beneath. Local anesthesia is used during the treatment.
When the procedure is over, the skin appears to be red
in color and is tender. It usually takes the skin a
few weeks to heal. This procedure is not recommended
if the patient is prone to scarring. If the patient
is prone to hyper or hypo-pigmentation as well, then
this procedure is not highly recommended. Find a Dermabrasion specialist today!

Tattoo Removal Just Got Easier
by: Lance Winslow
When we are young it seems we are fearless and often do things for emotional reasons that later we might regret. Many folks who get tattoos later wish they hadn't and it affects their social standing and status in society. It is unfortunate that society plays this way, but folks often must submit to this level of mob mentality and control to maintain employment. So, much for individuality perhaps, but that is the way it is.
