The truth – Can Your Tattoo be Removed…
Tattoos used to be something permanent that you’d have to live with forever, regardless if getting one turned out to be a mistake. Today, that is no longer the case and the list of what tattoos can’t be removed has shrunk dramatically. With the latest laser technology, very few tattoos can’t be erased if you change your mind.
•Laser removal doesn’t damage the surrounding skin.
This is revolutionary, and quite a change from older methods that literally cut or rubbed the tattoo off or attempted to dissolve it with harsh chemicals. Tattoos can now be targeted with lasers that remove the pigmentation without damaging the skin, meaning you can go back to your old ink-free look.
•Some tattoos are challenging to remove.
These include things like metallic ink, light greens, light blues, and permanent makeup. Newer tattoos can sometimes pose a problem as well.
•It doesn’t hurt to try.
Whether a tattoo can be removed or not can really only be decided on a case-by-case basis. Because lasers do not damage the skin, in most cases there is no harm in trying laser removal techniques. The worst that can happen is you will end up with the same tattoo you already had.
•Consultation is crucial.
Only a professional can know for sure whether your tattoo is a good candidate for removal. Tattoo removal clinics offer consultations, where you can come in and talk with a physician about your chances of clearing your skin of artwork.
If you’re in the mood to remove a tattoo, MEDermis has a staff of certified laser removal professionals who are ready to help. Come in for a consultation and they’ll be able to help you figure out what tattoos can be removed, or if you’re stuck with that guy’s name on your hip forever. If they can’t remove it, they can recommend local tattoo artists who may be able to design some new ink to camouflage your previous mistake. Either way, MEDermis can help you solve your tattoo issues.
