Laser Tattoo Removal Birmingham

TREATMENT OVERVIEW

Laser tattoo removal is simple, safe, and produces fantastic results. The advanced technology works by allowing the light produced by the laser to pass through the skin and break up the tattoo ink into tiny particles. The body then disposes of these fragments via its immune system. People obtain tattoos for a variety of reasons, including cultural, personal, and aesthetic reasons. Tattoos are also becoming more widespread, with facial tattoos becoming increasingly fashionable.

Individuals get tattoos for a variety of reasons, and people may desire to remove them for a variety of reasons as well. Tattoos are permanent, but only to a certain extent. If you decide you no longer want them, you can remove them. Tattoos with many colors are more difficult to remove. They might require treatment with different lasers and wavelengths to be effective. The best candidates for traditional laser removal are those with lighter skin. This is because laser treatment can change the color of darker skin. It’s least likely to change the color of darker skin. Older tattoos tend to fade most with laser treatment. Newer tattoos are more difficult to remove.

TREATMENT INFORMATION

For Laser Tattoo Removal in Birmingham, look no further. Our lasers can be used to progressively remove unwanted tattoos over a period of sessions. The laser’s radiation breaks down the tattoo ink into tiny particles, which are taken into the bloodstream and safely excreted from the body.

The practitioner guides a laser over the tattooed region during a laser tattoo removal process. Unlike a laser pointer, which emits a continuous beam of light, tattoo removal lasers emit light in pulses. Each energy pulse passes through the skin and is absorbed by the tattoo pigment. As the energy is absorbed by the tattoo ink particles, they heat up and shatter into small fragments. The body’s immune system then flushes the tattoo ink particles away from the area throughout the weeks following treatment, lightening the appearance of the tattoo. Each laser treatment removes more and more tattoo ink until there is none left. Call Starbrows now to book your Laser Tattoo Removal in Birmingham.

AFTERCARE

For a short time following treatment, your skin may be red with a raised rash. Applying an ice pack to your skin may be beneficial.

Before your skin scabs over, you may experience some minor bleeding. To aid healing, apply aloe vera gel or Vaseline.

Your skin will become more sun-sensitive. After a treatment, stay out of the sun and avoid tanning beds for at least a week. Wear sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and cover the area with clothing.

You should stay away from:

  • picking or scratching the scab for the first 48
  • picking or scratching the scab for the first 48 hours
  • doing vigorous physical activity for a few days
  • swimming and saunas

Frequently Asked Questions

Laser tattoo removal is the safest and most effective procedure available today for removing old ink. It is a relatively non-invasive therapy that targets only the ink of your undesirable tattoo and leaves the surrounding skin undisturbed because it employs only lasers.

While laser tattoo removal can be painful, it is unlikely to be as painful as having the tattoo. The laser pulses feel like a rubber band snapping against your skin, and the tattoo removal discomfort is equivalent to a horrible sunburn.

Lasers remove tattoos by using a high-intensity light beam to break up the pigment hues. All laser wavelengths are absorbed by black tattoo ink, making it the easiest colour to fix. Other colours can only be treated with specific lasers, which are determined by the pigment colour.

After laser treatment, there may be some skin lightening or darkening for several months. Protect the treated area from the sun until the skin has fully healed and reverted to its natural colour. Over the course of 4-6 weeks, your tattoo should fade.
