TATTOO REMOVAL VANCOUVER – ALL ABOUT TATTOOS
Decorative tattoos have a history dating back to ancient times. Currently, almost 20% of people in the United States have tattoos and the number is still growing. For the younger generation, tattoos are considered a symbol of freedom, but with advancing age, more and more wish to remove them because of the negative connotation associated with tattoos. As a leading tattoo removal Vancouver clinic, we simply remove tattoos because of an individual’s desire to replace the existing tattoo with a newer design.
WHAT IS TATTOO REMOVAL?
The application of tattoos is a widespread practice with a long cross-cultural history. Because of their widespread application, there is a rising trend for the removal of unwanted tattoos. Tattoo removal is the complete removal of the multicolour ink that is deposited under the skin.
HOW ARE TATTOOS REMOVED?
Medical lasers use a beam of light to significantly lighten or completely remove your tattoo. When the ink particles absorb the light from the laser, they are broken up into fragments and then absorbed through your body’s immune system. This process generally takes a few weeks. The larger the tattoo, the more sessions it will take to break down the ink particles.
TATTOO REMOVAL OPTIONS
Before the invention of the medical laser, common techniques included cryosurgery, dermabrasion or excision. These methods can be painful and may often result in scarring. Laser treatments are safer. They are minimally invasive and only target the ink used in the tattoo process. Lasers are now the modern standard for tattoo removal, specifically the Q-switched laser.
YOUR FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Each session usually takes 10 – 30 minutes. You will continue to see lightening of your tattoo after each treatment as your body disposes of more pigment. Most patients will see improvement in their tattoos and results can be quite dramatic.
