Hollywood has taught us that tattooing your lover’s name on your body is a very bad idea: Angelina Jolie, Heidi Klum, Eva Longoria, & Johnny Depp all have had homage to their partners removed.
What are their options now?? Of course Laser Tattoo Removal is a preferred method of choice over surgical excision.
A laser is used to break down the tattoo’s colorized particles, but tattoo pigments have been modernized to resist fading. It has become more challenging to remove them. “Old tattoo’s use iron oxide which fade fast because bodies, especially woman’s bodies, love absorbing iron particles”. “New tattoos are done with pigments that stay in the skin longer”. Explains Janice Regan Director of Lasting Looks Clinic.
Many factors impact the tattoo removal: color, location, and intricacy. No less than six treatments, but more likely up to ten.
These treatments are done 4-6 weeks apart to provide time for healing. “If you repeat the treatment sooner you risk scarring the patient.” “You don’t want to trade the tattoo for a scar”.
