Maple Valley, WA area men and women who have had tattoos put on their skin often believe at the time they pay for the design that they will love it forever. However, relationships change, tastes change, and careers change, leading many to feel regretful for certain tattoos. It used to be that a tattoo could not be removed, but with continue advances in medical technology, patients can now reverse tattoos and achieve clear, beautiful skin with the power of laser light energy!
What is laser tattoo removal?
A popular cosmetic treatment provided at MD Cote is that of laser tattoo removal. Laser tattoo removal is an aesthetic treatment that uses medical devices to obtain dramatic results. This treatment uses laser light energy that penetrates into the skin and can break down pigmentation used in tattoo ink. In doing so, the skin will naturally absorb the ink and over time, the tattoo will appear faded. With routine treatments spaced weeks apart, many patients can achieve full remove within approximately 6 months. Of course, there are some factors that can contribute to how quickly a tattoo can be removed. These include:
- Age of the tattoo
- Quality of inks used in the tattoo
- Color of the inks used in the tattoo
- Size of the tattoo
