What Is Laser Tattoo Removal?
Laser tattoo removal is a permanent treatment option to eliminate the appearance of an unwanted tattoo. This non-surgical, non-invasive treatment harnesses the power of laser energy to target the particles of the ink in the tattoo. It breaks them up, and the body naturally processes them.
Tattoo removal may be performed on most tattoos on most skin tones and types. However, it is important to keep in mind factors like ink color and tattoo size may impact the treatment process.
What Could I Expect from the Treatment Process?
Laser tattoo removal sessions are performed on an outpatient basis in our Tennessee offices. The treatment itself involves using a laser device to alter the state of the ink on the skin. When the laser energy interacts with the tattoo, it breaks up the ink particles. This causes their appearance to dissipate.
While there is minimal discomfort associated with the laser tattoo removal process, you may experience some warmth and a sensation similar to a rubber band snapping your skin. However, treatment sessions are relatively short, and you should be able to resume your normal daily activities. Skin in the treatment area may be tender or sensitive.
Results achieved with laser tattoo removal will vary for each person and the nature of the tattoo, but most people begin to see their tattoo fading after the first treatment. A series of treatments is often necessary to achieve the permanent and complete elimination of the tattoo.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Laser tattoo removal offers benefits for most people who are unhappy with a tattoo. It may be performed on most skin tones and types, and it may remove most types and colors of ink. This treatment is safe and effective for most generally healthy adults with realistic goals and expectations for treatment.
A consultation with our professional staff in Hendersonville or Murfreesboro can help determine if you could be a good candidate for treatment. They will check your tattoo, discuss your health, and review the process with you. They will work with you to develop your personalized treatment plan.
