    The Most Common Misconceptions in Laser Tattoo Removal


     The Most Common Misconceptions in Laser Tattoo Removal

    The objective of laser tattoo removal is to shatter ink without damaging the surrounding skin. At A Change of Art, we are able to do this with our state of the art Q-switched Quanta Q Plus laser. So, why are there so many misconceptions surrounding laser tattoo removal? For the most part, it is because people are not educated enough or do not fully comprehend the process of this technology. And secondly, people are not always being treated with the appropriate laser therefore creating a trickling effect on bad tattoo removals throughout the masses.

     Here are a few common misconceptions that we have straightened out for you.

    Laser tattoo removal causes scarring:

    False. Unless you already have an existing scar, are prone to scarring or keloids, and are reckless with your aftercare; laser tattoo removal will not leave a scar on your skin. An existing scar maybe one you got when you received the tattoo and in this case, some people have assumptions that it was from the laser as opposed to it being there prior to treatments. During our consultations your tattoo and the area around it is assessed thoroughly and we address any scarring that may already be there. Previous wounds that caused scarring and the proper aftercare for your treatments are discussed thoroughly so that there are no misunderstandings.

    I should expect excessive bleeding:

    False. No. You may experience pin point bleeding under the skin. Pin point is exactly that-pin point and usually resolves quickly or the time it takes you to heal from a bruise. If you experience excessive bleeding after a treatment, the settings on the laser are too high or you’re simply not being treated with the appropriate laser.

    Laser tattoo removal is instant:

    False. An immediate frosting that occurs directly after have patients thinking that their tattoo is gone, but this reaction is actually the ink being penetrated by the laser and goes away in about 10-20 minutes after the treatment. Laser tattoo removal actually takes some time. Multiple treatments are needed at 6-8 week intervals. Each session will break up more ink making it easier for your body to remove as time goes on.

    New tattoos are easier to remove:

    False. New tattoos are actually harder to remove and there are more unnecessary risks involved. There are circumstances where this can be done however should be done by a very skilled medical provider. In general, it’s best to wait at least 6-8 weeks to have laser tattoo removal done on new tattoos.

    All lasers are created equal.

    False. Choosing the appropriate laser for your tattoo removal is critical. Do the proper research, because not all lasers are created equal. You want to choose a clinic that has uses a well laser that has been around for years specializing in tattoo removal. Research studies that have been done with that particular laser find pictures with before and after results. Find out about which lasers are available in your city for tattoo removal and go onto the manufacturer’s websites. Read testimonials from people who have been treated with this laser and ask questions on blog forums and social media postings. Being treated by a laser that does not specialize in tattoo removal will leave you with very little to no results and maybe even a scar.

    Laser tattoo removal is largely based on many factors:

    True. Laser tattoo removal is more commonly based on skin type, ink density, colors, and location of the tattoo, but it also has a lot to do with the proper aftercare. Generally, the healthier you are, the easier for your body to flush away those unwanted pigments that have been shattered by the laser. Also the age, previous scars, and previous tattoo covers ups also play a major role on how many sessions it will take to remove your tattoo.
