Help! I Regret My Tattoo

Tattoos are meant to reflect your individuality. But, when you have a tattoo that brings you more embarrassment than happiness, you might suffer from tattoo regret.

An estimated 25% of people with tattoos regret at least one of them. The good news is that your tattoo doesn’t have to be a permanent reminder of your past. Laser tattoo removal is a popular treatment that erases unwanted ink.

At Advanced Laser and Cosmetic our team specialize in laser skin treatments, including tattoo removal. Laser tattoo removal is a safe and effective way to address embarrassing tattoos. So if you have ink you regret, here’s what you can do.

Step 1: The consultation

Our providers will start by evaluating your skin and medical history. You should come to your consultation prepared to talk about your goals and expectations for tattoo removal. You should also be prepared to share information about any medical conditions you have or medications you take.

We will take a close look at the tattoo you wish to remove. Certain factors, such as size, location, colors, type of ink, and skin type can influence how well laser tattoo removal will work and how many treatments you may need. Tattoo removals typically take 3-10 treatments, with sessions taking place 4-6 weeks apart.

People in generally good health are great candidates for laser tattoo removal. At the end of your consultation, we will give you any other information you may need to decide if laser tattoo removal is right for you.

Step 2: The removal process

Laser tattoo removals can be uncomfortable, but anesthesia typically isn’t necessary. Many people describe the feeling of laser treatment like being snapped with a rubber band.

During treatment, the laser energy will target and destroy the ink particles. Once the particles are broken up, your body will naturally process and eliminate them, and the tattoo will begin to disappear. The ink will continue to get lighter with each session.

The procedure is safe and effective for a variety of skin types. There’s no downtime once your session is over, but you’ll need to take steps to soothe your skin following each session. Our team will provide instructions on caring for your skin and reducing your risk for infection.

You don’t have to live with tattoo regret. To see if laser tattoo removal can help you, book an appointment over the phone with Advanced Laser and Cosmetic today.
