What are the methods available?
With the progress of technology, we people are going to get better and better model of everything. Even this field is not untouched with modern technology.
Before sometimes there were very limited ways to remove a tattoo, but the whole scene has been changed.
At present we have some very popular and effective methods to remove the tattoos. Some of those methods are Salabrasion, skin excision, laser method, injecting the skin, peel of the skin etc. All these methods are very effective at its place as per the requirements. The most effective method among these is Laser techniques. It is considered to be the most advanced method of tattoo removal. Here we will discuss Laser method only. In this article, we will get to know many things about this technique. So let's start
As I said before, this is considered the most advanced method for removing the tattoo. In this method, the laser light is used to treat the tattoo. With the help of a strong monochromatic laser beam, the whole tattoo is removed after some sessions. This method is very useful when the tattoo is very large and cannot be removed by any other method like skin excision or graffing method. This method works more effectively with darker colours like black or blue.
Steps involved in this method.
First of all, we need to visit the dermatologist and fix the schedule. Now in the first session, the whole processes pass through many steps. One day before starting the process the person whose tattoo is to be removed is told not to take any medication as it may create some complexion. The procedure starts with the application of anaesthesia on the tattoo area of the skin of the person. This is applied to numb the tattooed skin of the person so that he will not be able to feel the pain and the whole process will be completed without any disturbance.
After making the skin numb, the laser beam is made fall on the skin with the laser gun. These beams go through the skin upper layer and reaches the dermis layer where the ink pigments are fixed while making the tattoo.
How does this laser method work?
In this process, the laser falling on the skin enters the dermis layers. There they break down the larger sized ink particles into smaller ones. These particles are so small that they can be easily carried through the bloodstream of the body and can be absorbed and thrown out of the body.
What is the meaning of Laser?
The word LASER is the acronym of ' Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation'. This is a very monochromatic light beam. It has very power of penetrating the objects. The laser beam used in this process is used in a very controlled way so that it could go only up to the layer where the ink particles are fixed.
There are some precautions which we must take before, during and after the procedure.
Always use this method with some authentic dermatologist.
Keep someone with you who can help you during and the sitting in doing some task for you, in arranging your required stuff and taking you back to home safely if you feel some dizziness after the session.
Since its the matter of your health also, never compromise with the quality of work just for the sake of saving some penny.
Never leave any session undone as it may make the whole process complicated and make you spend some more time and buck.
Every two sessions in this method have a gap of approx 3 months. This gap is required as the whole small pieces of colour pigment do not come out all at once. They come out by and by and almost take a 3-month time to come out completely. This method also requires 7-10 sittings or as per the prescription of the dermatologist. Since it's not possible to break down all the ink particles in the first sitting, 7-10 sittings are required in this method.
Through this method takes a little more time, you will never regret to have this method after using it. Once you will use it you will not need to go for any other method.
