Put simply, the time to consider laser tattoo removal is when you no longer want a particular tattoo. It may be because it no longer looks attractive or because you have moved on and no longer have the sentiment that is attached to your tattoo. Whatever the reason, laser tattoo removal may be your best option for getting rid of your unwanted ink.

There are many reasons people consider laser tattoo removal at our office. The most common reason is that the tattoo no longer gives them happiness. Some people cannot get the job they want with the tattoos that show on their neck, hands or arms. All branches of the military have tattoo regulations, but one common to all is that tattoos should not show when the person is in uniform.

Lasers are much more precise than other removal techniques. For example, dermabrasion used to be a popular removal treatment, but it essentially sands off the surface of your skin, which can be very invasive and leave a scar that looks worse than the tattoo.

Laser tattoo removal works by breaking up the ink particles in the tattoo. These tiny particles of ink are absorbed and eliminated naturally by the body. It takes a series of sessions before the tattoo is completely gone.

First, you may consult our specialist so that your tattoo can be examined. Several factors need to be considered before the treatment starts. You should be clear about your expectations because no tattoo removal procedure can be guaranteed. However, laser tattoo removal has a good success rate.

Professionally done tattoos, in general, penetrate deeper into the skin at uniform levels, which may make them easier to remove if the ink is not too dense. In tattoos done by amateurs, the ink may be unevenly applied, which could make removing them a challenge. However, we have had great success with tattoos of all types.

It is no longer the case that tattoos must be a permanent part of your appearance. You can discuss your expectations with our expert and trained technicians at MD Beauty Labs to make a removal plan that is suitable for your lifestyle. With laser tattoo removal, there is a good chance that you can have clear skin again, or at least make way for a new tattoo.
