HOW TATTOO REMOVAL WORKS
These days, it is possible to remove skin tattoos thanks to the development of lasers. Those in the Des Moines, IA area looking to have that mistake erased like it was never even there can now do so at Bergman Folkers Plastic Surgery.
Typically, completely removing a tattoo will require many treatment sessions. These sessions must be spaced out at least 7 weeks apart. Failure to do so may increase the risk of adverse effects. As the ink is absorbed from the skin by the lasers, the tattoo appears lighter and lighter until it fades away.
Keep in mind that laser tattoo removal will involve some discomfort. Many people say the pain is worse than getting the tattoo. But don’t worry; we’ll use local anesthesia to help.
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU SCHEDULE TATTOO REMOVAL
The amount of time needed to completely remove a tattoo via lasers depends on several factors. These include skin type, the location of the tattoo, the color of the tattoo, how much ink was used, scarring, immune system function, and circulation. Although it’s tough to control any of these factors, the patient can do things to help the recovery process such as eating right and getting the proper amount of sleep.
