Whether you got your first tattoo at eighteen and are now deeply embarrassed by your choice or you are stuck with the name of an ex-lover on your skin, there are plenty of reasons people in Fort Lauderdale have for regretting their tattoo. Tattoos are meant to be permanent, and making a mistake in years past can continue to haunt you today. If you are not happy with some of the artwork you chose in the past and you want to cover it up successfully or remove it entirely, laser tattoo removal at our office in Sunrise or Coral Springs is likely your best option.
The Laser Treatment Process
Laser tattoo removal is a process that usually takes multiple visits to completely remove the tattoo, depending on the size, placement and the technique of the original tattoo artist. The laser is calibrated to focus only on the pigments used in the ink of the tattoo. It heats them and causes microscopic damage to the surrounding cells. Your body then recognizes the ink as a foreign substance and cleans it away. Over time and with continued treatment, the tattoo fades away, completely leaving behind clear skin. If you simply want to fade the tattoo so you can have better artwork covering the old, a few laser treatments may be all you need.
Scheduling Your Laser Treatments
Your laser tattoo removal treatments near Fort Lauderdale can be planned around your schedule. The treatments are meant to be convenient, even for people with busy lifestyles. Virtually no downtime is required after the treatment, so you can get right back to work or your other normal activities.
