There are some things in life that most of us would like to forget. For example, think of a past relationship that ended badly. After breaking up, you may have gotten rid of everything related to that person. What if you had received a tattoo of his or her name? While you can throw away pictures of the person, that tattoo is a constant reminder of something that you would like to forget. This is just one reason why someone might want to get rid of a tattoo. Whatever your reason, you can say goodbye to your tattoo with laser tattoo removal.
A lot of people get a tattoo with the idea of wanting to remember a person or an idea for the rest of their life. Perhaps they want to mark a special day or commemorate something special. However, when their feelings change, they want to have nothing to do with that person or that idea. A tattoo could have also been applied badly or misspelled. If you would like to make your ink a distant memory, laser tattoo removal may be right for you.
The very first thing that you should do when considering laser tattoo removal is learn as much as you can about it. The more you learn about it, the more satisfied you will feel with the results that you get. We offer tattoo removal with the technologically advanced Astanza Duality laser. We also use a cooling device to counteract the heat generated by the laser and provide you with a more comfortable treatment. If desired, we can apply an anesthetic to the area to make your treatment even more comfortable.
You will likely need multiple treatments spaced a few weeks apart to fully remove your tattoo. These treatment sessions are going to be spaced apart by several weeks. The number of treatments you will need will depend on factors such as the size and colors of your tattoo, which Dr. Gavrila will help you learn more about during your consultation.
Laser tattoo removal works by breaking up the ink in the dermis. The Astanza Duality laser utilizes two different wavelengths to ensure effective removal of a wide range of colors. Once the ink particles have been broken up, the body will gradually remove them.
