Anyone who has a bad tattoo must have watched the horrors of the TV programme – Tattoo Fixers. There is nothing wrong with this programme, but for television and entertainment they really have picked out the most horrendous tattoos to ‘fix’. But even after the artists alterations…it’s still a tattoo!
However If you have a body design that maybe just brings back bad memories or maybe was done when you were perhaps drunk, out partying with your mates as a dare and you now wish you had never had it done then maybe you should read this. Believe me – removing the tattoo for good is the only way to wipe out that mistake.
There’s good news and bad news for fixing your tattoo once and for all….but the bad news is just the mild discomfort…but can you remember the pain of getting done? Probably not!!! You might remember it all with regrets and possibly a hangover the next day! However the good news is that most body designs can be removed and done by an expert and you will not ‘ragret’ it!!
Most important is the fact that ALL body designs are unique – AND even more important everyone has unique skin. This means you need expert advice and attention to assess your individual needs.
Here are some key facts to consider:
Tattoos vary and so does the treatment
Every client considering tattoo removal needs to be aware that the treatment provided really depends on the tattoo itself. Older ink and black ink tends to be much easier to remove than coloured ink. The length of treatment greatly depends on these factors. Usually treatments are approximately 8 weeks apart and may require 8 to 15 laser sessions depending on the individual and tattoo.
So your choice in the locality of a specialist clinic is a main consideration.
Faster removal is not always best advice – Be wary of any clinics that tells you otherwise. Most laser tattoo removal clients want get rid of their tattoos as quickly as possible. However, aggressive tattoo removal means that there is a higher chance of scarring which nobody wants. Individual assessment of your skin is necessary to make sure a delicate removal procedure is conducted which reduces the risk of scarring.
So don’t rush into your decision as you did when you had the tattoo done in the first place – do some research in your locality and find an expert clinic.
Basically this is how the tattoo laser removal treatment works:
The lasers break down the ink in your skin which allows the body to flush it out of your system. Without getting to technical, essentially the laser goes into the dermis layer of skin until it reaches the ink. Next, the ink is broken down into tiny particles which allows the lymphatic system (the network of vessels in our body) to dispose of. Essentially the broken down ink is absorbed by the body and removed by the lymphatic system.
At The Fylde Clinic, only impartial advice is provided to clients to ensure they get the right treatment for their individual needs. For more information about tattoo removal, visit the website.
