Tattoo Removal – Different Options Available for Tattoo Removal
When you have tattoos that you would like to eliminate, there are a number of different options available. However, not every option has the same degree of effectiveness, and it is important to choose professional tattoo removal rather than relying on an untested removal solution. The most effective removal method is Laser Tattoo Removal.
Laser Tattoo Removal
Laser tattoo removal is the most popular way to remove tattoos today because it can remove any type of tattoo — homemade, professionally done, or any type of ink tattoo — effectively without affecting the skin around the tattoo, and without leaving any scar tissue behind.
Lasers like those used by P. Alexander Ataii M.D. at Laser Clinique, San Diego are high tech devices that emit very specific light wavelengths. The laser light is targeted at the area where the ink is, and it causes the tattoo ink to disperse into multiple miniscule particles. The particles of ink are so tiny that they are able to be absorbed harmlessly and filtered away by your body.

Laser tattoo removal is done slowly over a period of about 4 – 8 short treatment sessions, and clients can expect to ultimately fade away about 80 or 90 percent of the tattoo if the tattoo ink was of any standard type. Although the process isn’t painful normally, patients who are pain-sensitive can have local anesthetic or anesthetic cream to help ease them through the process at Laser Clinique.
Dermabrasion is sometimes used for tattoo removal. This is a process in which the skin layers are sanded away until the tattoo ink is accessed and gradually removed. Tattoo removal with dermabrasion can be difficult and takes multiple sessions. Due to the more invasive nature of this procedure, it will leave scarring and can have painful recovery periods in between the appointments.
Tattoo fading creams are a solution that falls into the “at home remedy” category. These creams, which can typically be purchased online, are designed to massage into the skin. They claim to lift ink out of the skin and/or fade the tattoo, but thus far there has been no proof or clinical results that these types of remedies can be effective for tattoo removal.
