According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, more than 50 percent of people who get a tattoo regret the decision sometime down the line. A lot of that regret has to do with the tattoo that they got. Tattoos are designed to be permanent. And for a very long time, there was nothing that a person could do to get rid of their tattoo. Even if they hated the way it looked, even if it spelled out the name of an ex-girlfriend, or even if it was an expression of rebellion from their youth, there was nothing that individuals living a few decades ago could do to remove their tattoo without severely damaging their skin.
Thankfully, with laser tattoo removal procedures, there is a chance that you might to be able to undo the mistake you made when you got your tattoo. You may not be able to fully remove the tattoo, but with laser treatments, you may be able to remove a sufficient amount of the tattoo from your skin so that your tattoo becomes a very faint image. With that being said, many patients are able to achieve complete tattoo removal. It all depends on the unique situation.
Laser tattoo removal is not a one-time deal. It takes multiple sessions that are spaced a set amount of time apart in order to achieve your desired results. Lasers remove the ink and the dye from your skin using a specialized process.
Advances in laser tattoo removal make it possible for you to have tattoos removed regardless of the color. That being said, results vary from patient to patient, since each individual and situation is unique.
