It seems like everyone is getting inked these days. While a new generation is expressing themselves with body art, you are looking to get rid of your tattoos. Thankfully, with laser tattoo removal, that is entirely possible.
How Laser Tattoo Removal Works
It all starts with a consultation at our office in Frisco, TX, during which we’ll help you determine if laser tattoo removal is right for you. Most people who are interested in this treatment qualify for it. However, we still want to make sure the treatment is safe for you and that you have realistic expectations regarding the treatment and the results. From there, we can plan for your treatments.
During the treatment, the laser emits photons that collide with the ink that is lodged deep in your skin. When the photon energy contacts with the ink molecules in your skin, the molecules break apart into tiny fragments. These fragments are then viewed by the body as waste that can be removed via the lymphatic system. With each ink molecule that gets destroyed and removed by the lymphatic system, the more your tattoos will fade over time. Before you know it, your tattoos may have faded to a point where they are difficult to see or eliminated altogether.
How Many Sessions are Required?
It’s important to keep in mind that laser tattoo removal is not a one-time deal. As a rule of thumb, it takes a series of treatment sessions to eliminate a tattoo. With each of these sessions, you should notice more fading of the tattoo. However, results vary depending on a number of factors.
