Tattoos Holding You Back? Explore Laser Tattoo Removal

Dec 28 2011

We’ve all made decisions that we regret.  Some are a bit more permanent than others.  Or are they?  Tattooing is an ancient art that became wildly popular in the 1990s.  In fact, USA Today is reporting that “24% of Americans between 18 and 50 are tattooed; that’s almost one in four,” citing a survey from the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology.  While many are satisfied with the look and placement of their tattoos, for others it’s a different story.

For countless individuals, their tattoos are a constant reminder of something they’d rather forget, be it a past relationship or other previous affiliation.  For others, placement is the problem.  Those with a tattoo on their hand, neck or other very visible place may feel it’s limiting their job prospects or other opportunities.  No matter what your concern, it’s important to understand that tattoos may not be as permanent as you think.  Read on to learn about how we can help to lighten or remove tattoos using cutting-edge technology.

An Introduction to Laser Tattoo Removal

Tattoo removal by laser has come a long way.  One cutting-edge treatment is the VeraPulse Laser.  VeraPulse combines four lasers in one and allows us to treat tattoos of all colors as well as a myriad of other skin conditions. This treatment lightens or removes tattoos by pulsing light on the ink particles.

Before treatment, we will sit down and discuss whether or not you’re a good candidate for laser tattoo removal and what you can realistically expect from the procedure.  Patients will usually undergo a series of sessions, depending on the complexity of the tattoo.  To keep you comfortable throughout, we often use topical anesthetic and/or local anesthesia prior to treatment.  If you’re regretting your tattoos or you feel they’re holding you back, do something about it today.  There are treatment options available.
