While getting that tattoo may have sounded like a great idea at the time, about 20% of individuals with a tattoo regret their decision. The image, name, or mantra, which at one time carried so much meaning and artistic expression, has lost its personal relevance, importance, or style. In these instances, it is common for people to look into their options for tattoo removal.

But getting rid of a tattoo is not easy. The ink particles injected into the skin for a tattoo are so big that removing the pattern naturally is virtually impossible. These large ink particles must be broken down before our body can absorb and eliminate them.

Laser tattoo removal is considered one of the most convenient and popular methods for erasing tattoos. In fact, over the past decade, the number of laser tattoo removal clinics in the U.S. has grown by over 400%. In this article, we will discuss the benefits of laser tattoo removal.

Laser Tattoo Removal is a Safe, Easy, and Effective Process

The laser tattoo removal process uses an FDA-approved laser to easily, safely, and effectively remove tattoos. Laser tattoo removal effectively reduces the appearance of tattoo ink without causing lasting effects to the surrounding skin. The procedure results in minimal damage and virtually no side effects compared to traditional methods.

Laser Tattoo Removal Works for Any Size Tattoo

The laser removal technique is an effective means of removing any tattoo, large or small. Laser tattoo removal can remove specific tattoos or parts of existing tattoos. And there is no limit to the amount of body surface area that can be treated. Laser tattoo removal has been effectively used to erase ink from every skin surface of the body.

Laser Tattoo Removal has few Side-Effects and Minimal Recovery Time

Laser tattoo removal is one of the safest ways to remove tattoos. The risk of infection is minimal, and few undesirable side effects are reported after treatment. For a few days following treatment, patients will need to use sunscreen on the area to protect their skin from ultraviolet radiation. Some patients report a small amount of redness and tenderness, but these symptoms quickly subside.

Laser Tattoo Removal Patient Satisfaction is Very High

About 11% of people with tattoos will seek treatment for removal and about 70% of these people are women. The majority of individuals who have undergone the procedure are happy with their tattoo removal and do not regret having their body art undone.
