There are a number of reasons why Austin residents get a tattoo. For each one of these reasons, there is also a reason why they may now be looking for tattoo removal. It could be that in your case, you got your tattoo when you were younger. When you got the tattoo, it meant something to you. It represented where you were in your life at that point in time. Now, as the years have passed, things have changed. Perhaps the values that you had just a few years ago are no longer the ones that you have, and you feel that your tattoo does not represent who you are or how you want the world to see you.
Another reason why many opt to get their tattoos removed is because they got the tattoo to commemorate something that was important to them, like the start of a new relationship. When they got the tattoo, they felt that the relationship was going to last forever. However, the relationship did not go as they expected, and now every time they look at the tattoo, it reminds them of something that did not work out well. Again, laser tattoo removal may be the right option.
Why is Laser Tattoo Removal So Effective?
Of all of the ways that a person can remove tattoos, laser tattoo removal has been proven to be the fastest and safest approach. Getting the tattoo removed starts when you visit our office in Austin and go through a consultation. During that initial consultation, we are going to look at your tattoo and your medical history to make sure that our laser tattoo removal techniques are right for you. We want to know what you want from this treatment. Are you looking to have the tattoo completely removed, or do you want it just to fade?
During the treatment, laser energy is going to target the molecules of ink in your skin. These laser bursts are very quick, and so they cause the molecules of the ink to expand and then cool quickly, which ultimately causes the larger molecules to break down into smaller molecules. As this process is repeated, the ink molecules are broken down small enough so that your body can attack them and remove them gradually.
Laser tattoo removal technology has come a long way in recent years. If you are interested in this treatment, you owe it to yourself to visit us at Texas Laser and Aesthetics in Austin.
